French Government pays compensation to a 39-year-old woman who is allergic to Wi-Fi signals
Marine Richard, a 39-year-old former radio producer residing in France is a electromagnetic hypersensitivity patient. She may look normal to you at the first glance but she cannot live in a “normal society” due to her condition.
Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity is characterized by a group of symptoms purportedly caused by exposure to electromagnetic fields. The reported symptoms of electromagnetic hypersensitivity include headache, fatigue, stress, sleep disturbances, skin symptoms like prickling, burning sensations and rashes, pain and ache in muscles and many other health problems.
People who are electromagnetic hypersensitivity patient cannot reside in places where Wi-Fi and occasionally mobile network radiation pass. Although medical experts say there is no convincing scientific evidence for it being caused by electromagnetic fields, Marine claims that Wi-Fi signals make her sick.
Last week, a French court instructed authorities to pay Marine roughly $900 a month for at least three years for the claimed discomfort making her the first person to be officially acknowledged and compensated for the disorder.
Marine says she is restricted to a farm building in the rural area of Ariège where electricity and Wi-Fi cannot reach her. Talking on her court win, she said “this is a breakthrough.”
