Sensitive to Wireless Technology in the U.S.?

Sensitive to Wireless Technology in the US?
jeaninedeal, 3 November 2016

Do you consider yourself sensitive to wireless technology and/or electromagnetic fields?

Has a physician diagnosed you as sensitive to electromagnetic fields?

Would you like to have public places you can go that are free of WiFi routers,
cell towers and antenna for health reasons?


The National Institute on Disability, Independent Living and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) is taking public comments during their Stakeholder Listening Session, which is going on until December 12, 2016.

If you are experiencing environmentally induced functional impairment from wireless technology (a.k.a. radiofrequency sickness, electrotoxicity, etc.), please take a moment to participate in the listening sessions... Environmentally-induced functional impairments are covered under the 2008 ADA Amendments.
~ We have until December 12, 2016 to submit a written comment ~

The NIDILRR requests that your comments answer the following questions:

  • What issues (barriers) make it challenging for you to be an active member of your community?
  • What improvements (name the top one or two) would make your daily life better?
  • What has changed, for better or worse, in the last five years that as affected your ability to achieve your goals?

There are also opportunities to speak in-person, or over the phone, regarding environmentally induced functional impairment, though that opportunity ends on December 5, 2016. Please see the Stakeholder Listening Session page for more details about in-person or phone comments.

It is imperative that they hear from as many people as possible with narrow specific needs e.g. no wireless, especially WiFi, in public buildings and public spaces, especially medical facilities. If you have time and are able to do so, please back up your story and the need for wireless-free public buildings and public spaces with research. If not, your story and the stated accessibility barrier are sufficient.

Please email written comments to:

- Please send a copy of those comments to your National Congressional Delegation (2 Senators and 1 Representative) Look them up at: http://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm and http://www.house.gov/representatives/.

- Ask that they stop funding wireless broadband, repeal section 704 of the 1996 Telecommunications Act, give the EPA authority to establish population-based biologically-protective limits for wireless radiation, and ban WiFi from public buildings and public spaces.

They need to hear about this continually from everyone before they will act. Only rarely do people take action on new information the first time they hear it.

Thank you for taking the time to participate. Change will not happen without your active participation.
