I might be able to buy the idea that some people are more sensitive to radio waves than others - but there's simply no way I'm buying this "allergic to wifi" thing:

Steve, who is best known by his stagename Afterlife, told the Sun: "I feel like an exile on my own planet. It's almost impossible to find somewhere without wi-fi nowadays. "If I go somewhere, I can instantly sense the wi-fi and have to leg it"

Right... WiFi gives him fits, but broadcast TV, mobile phone signals, wireless house phones, terrestrial radio - those are all no problem at all. Never mind whatever stray signal that his DJ equipment throws off. I'm not buying it, and this kind of nonsense leads to really dumb stuff, like this:

There have been calls for the Government to determine whether or not wireless networks can damage your health.

In April, teaching leaders called for the technology to be removed from schools to protect children from a heightened risk of sterility and cancer.

It's a little late to be worrying about wireless signals - about a century too late...
