Woman who is ‘allergic to wi-fi’ fears that 5G rollout could kill her
Rosi Gladwell suffers from fatigue, shortness of breath, and occasionally a ‘pins and needles’ sensation in her face – and she thinks wi-fi is to blame.
Rosi, 70, is one of a growing number of people who believe they suffer from EHS – electromagnetic hypersensitivity.
She sleeps in a £400 sleeping bag woven with silver and copper that she thinks will block the harmful radiation, and also has a protective sheet she wraps around her body as well a £200 hand-held radiation detector so she can sniff out the harmful waves.
But Rosi fears that even these precautions won’t be enough once 5G is rolled out across the UK.
Rosi, who is from Totnes in Devon, has managed to cope by spending thousands of pounds on specialised equipment to protect herself, but she said that she fears that 5G could literally kill her.
She said: "I'm actually quite frightened about the future.
"At the moment, I've managed to make myself safe by being fortunate enough to live in a house in the countryside where there are no measured electromagnetic frequencies.
"But if they introduce 5G then I don't know what the future will bring. It's a really scary issue."
Since diagnosing herself with EHS, Rosi has spent hundreds on special equipment and spends most of her time in her family’s holiday home in the Spanish mountains.
She covers herself the sleeping bag and protective sheet for the duration of the 30-hour ferry trips she makes with her husband to Spain.
Rosi self-diagnosed herself with EMF sensitivity six years ago. She said that she was feeling ill but immediately improved 10 minutes after turning off the WiFi and cordless landline phones in her home.
She said: "Back then people would think of you as being weird if you said you suffered from EMF sensitivity, but I don't think that's the case now.

"There's no way I would go into a big town anymore because the signals are getting stronger.
"If I go to a cafe I try to sit outside and if we go out to dinner I take my meter with me and then I can decide which seats have the least radiation and sit there, because it varies so much in a room.
"If I am exposed for too long I have to come home and have two days with everything turned off and not watch TV."
Rosi is a leading member of the Electromagnetic Field Awareness Totnes group, whose members meet up to watch films and documentaries about the effects of radiation.

She said: "We have about 12 members who come to meetings, but there may be many more EMF-sensitive people in Totnes who feel so weak they can't come.
"Scientists say four per cent of people worldwide are suffering from EMF sensitivity and that's probably an underestimation.
"A lot of people now aren't feeling very well, everyone feels exhausted and stressed out, and some of it is, in my view, down to the extent of radiation."

The World Health Organisation has acknowledged that there is widespread belief in this condition, but advises "these symptoms may be due to pre-existing psychiatric conditions as well as stress reactions as a result of worrying about EMF health effects, rather than the EMF exposure itself".
Numerous experiments under controlled conditions suggest that people who claim to suffer from EHS are unable to detect the presence of electromagnetic fields.
Researchers have also found that EHS sufferers are as likely to report symptoms after being falsely told that an electromagnetic field is present as they are following exposure to genuine electromagnetic fields
