Some people feel there is a strong link between allergy and Wi-Fi. Could Wi-Fi cause or be related to human allergies?

A group in Santa Fe, New Mexico, is seeking a ban on Wi-Fi signals in public buildings because they say they are allergic to wireless Internet signals, according to a report from KOB-TV.

Arthur Firstenberg says he is highly sensitive to certain types of electric fields, including wireless Internet and cell phones.

"I get chest pain and it doesn't go away right away," he said.

Propping themselves up behind the Americans With Disabilities Act, they are calling wireless internet signals in public buildings "discriminatory" and demanding a widespread ban.

The Santa Fe city attorney is checking to see if the Wi-Fi signals could be considered a form of discrimination, KOB reports.
