This is a first: The French Justice has recognized the existence of a serious disability due to hypersensitivity to electromagnetic waves. This was announced Tuesday, August 25 Robin roofs Association, which campaigns for health security in wireless technologies. This decision represents “a big step forward for the recognition of this electro-hypersensitivity syndrome”, welcomed his spokesman, Stephen ashtray.
A recent judgment of Toulouse’s inability to litigation court recognizes, after medical examination, the complainant, Marine Richard suffers hypersensitivity syndrome to electromagnetic waves, including “the description of the clinical signs is irrefutable.”
In this judgment, it is estimated that its functional disability is 85% “with substantial and lasting restrictions on access to employment.” Justice accordingly grants him the right to a disabled adult allowance for three years, possibly renewable form of technical assistance and development of the slot.

Possible case
Etienne Ashtray hope that the judgment of Toulouse make case law. “Often justice is more human than political, which protect industrial,” he has said. A law of January 2016 only provides for early report on hypersensitivity to electromagnetic waves, said the spokesman Robin roofs.
The World Health Organization (WHO) recognized in 2005 that electrosensitivity was “characterized by a variety of non-specific symptoms that differ from individual to individual” but “are certainly real and can be very serious variable. ” However, there is no clear diagnostic criteria for this health problem, nor scientific basis to link the symptoms to exposure to electromagnetic fields, added the authors of the WHO study.
