Activists Win WiFi Illness Disability Claim

Merrilee Longshoes and Skyy Wolford (seen here) of North San Juan, CA have been working for over two years to get their case through the court system.

North San Juan, CA — Two North San Juan activists have won a landmark decision in the County Court allowing them to receive disability benefits for something called  electromagnetic hypersensitivity  or EHS. Merrilee Longshoes and Skyy Wolford of North San Juan, CA have been working for over two years to get their case through the court system.

“This ruling is not just about Merrilee and Me,” said Mr. Wolford out in front of the Nevada County Courthouse, “It’s about all those who suffer from EMS and don’t have a voice. From now on, the scourge of modern electromagnetic poisoning will have to answer to Social Services.”

According to the ruling, the court did not recognize EHS as an actual illness. It simply accepted Ms. Merrilee’s and Mr. Wolford’s symptoms as preventing them from working and awarded a disability allowance. Most experts, as in just about every one with a degree beyond the 4th grade, maintain that EHS doesn’t exist. Psychologists link the illness to the “nocebo” effect, where just knowing that something exists makes people think they are ill. This is also called “mental illness.”

“The whole court process was horrible,” said Ms. Longshoes in a Gish Gallop interview. “The lawyers were saying that we were mentally ill, which was separate from EMS. But in the past couple of years, my symptoms have been getting worse. Right after PG&E put in that Smart Meter. My Lyme disease has become worse, despite the thousands of dollars I’ve spent with my Naturopathic Physician. Now I can’t think clearly. I can’t eat gluten anymore. And the constant headaches! It’s especially worse when I head into town. So, it’s all due to encroaching presence of WiFi.”




According to the terms of the ruling, both Ms. Longshoes and Mr. Wolford will each receive upwards of $843.00 per month of disability insurance payments, and be eligible for both SNAP [Food Stamps] and Section 8 housing benefits. The judge was clear in his statement that no manufacturers of Wi-Fi equipment would be held culpable for any damages, but this hasn’t gone unnoticed by industry representatives.

“Obviously we are concerned about the implications of this ruling,” said Roseville, CA-based industry consultant Daft Franklin who represents the Discrete Wi-Fi Manufacturers Association of America. “I mean, this kind of precedent could really be trouble for our industry. We understand that the judge’s ruling strictly prohibited people from going after the Wi-Fi industry, but it’s not going to stop them. And costly and frivolous lawsuits are a damaging waste of resources. The fact of the matter is these folks are going to get much more non-ionizing background radiation from the Earth and the Sun. Heck, they’ll get more from sleeping next to someone.”

As for their future plans, Mr. Wolford had this to say.

“Now that this awful trial is over,” continued Mr. Wolford, “we can get to work on reducing EMS sources now from the Sun and the Earth. We’re going after the Federal Government to get the EPA [the Environmental Protection Agency] involved. This ruling will allow us to focus on that. But more immediately, we plan on going door to door to tell everyone to turn off their Wi-Fi devices. We’re going to tell them that they’re injuring not only themselves, but people who have won court cases. I’m sure they’ll get the hint.”

Despite reports and lab evidence of ill health around wireless, this article appears to be making fun of the issue judging by the last paragraph. There is info on risks and legislation at Last Tree Laws dot com, as well as a Disinformation page to post examples like this.

For those who doubt whether today’s wireless technology is harmful, please know it came to market with no safety testing. We now have thousands of studies world-wide in peer-reviewed, published journals indicating great biological harm. Feel free to peruse my personal research repository for additional informaton: https://sites.google.com/site/understandingemfs/electromagnetic-hypersensitivity-ehs

I’m so sorry for the suffering you’ve gone through from electrical sensitivities. Please know Massachusetts leads the nation with 19 bills this session to address man-made radiation and public health. Please consider asking legislators in your own towns to introduce similar legislation. Thank you for your time and consideration: https://sites.google.com/site/understandingemfs/massachusetts-emf-bills-2019-20

Cecelia- For someone who has recently realized I have EHS thank you for all the work you have done to educate and help others. Once you realize you have EHS you spend so much time and money trying to fix, elevate and understand how to stay safe its overwhelming. Thank you for providing so much information to help us and our families.

You’re welcome, Cindy, glad it has helped. Please know the first medical conference on EMFs is being planned for September. The website is still being finalized, but you’re welcome to share it with your medical team in case they’d like to be trained: https://emfconference.com/

For those wishing to learn more about the biological effects of microwave radiation from wireless, the non-profit Wireless Education has prepared half-hour on-line courses that distill the science, the risks, what other countries are already doing to protect their citizens, and medically recommended best practices for mobile devices: https://www.wirelesseducation.org/store/l2/. Thank you for your time and consideration.
