Two Frenchwomen are spending the winter in a cave, without heat or electricity, because wireless signals in their home town are causing them to become ill.The Local reports that the two women, in their 50s and 60s, claim to suffer from hyper-sensitive reactions to electro-magnetic radiation caused by wireless signals. They have now moved to a cave near Saint-Julien-en-Beauchêne in the Haute-Alpes region of France.
French publication, Liberation, reports that the two had previously tried sleeping in secluded fields in the countryside, the trunks of cars and underground restaurants to avoid wireless rays. This will be their third winter in the cave, which is only reachable via ladder.
Though French authorities have said that there is no connection to wireless signals and illness, the two request that special areas are created within the country to cater for people with their condition. A charity that specialises in illnesses caused by wireless signals says that only about a dozen people in the country would suffer such a severe reaction as these two.
