Today's London Daily Mail runs the account of a 51 year-old woman who claims extreme and incapacitating sensitiviith to Wi-Fi networks and mobile phones as well.

In fact, she sometimes wears facial protection worthy of a beekeeper.

We're talking abou Sarah Dacre, 51.

"Wi-Fi, or wireless broadband networks, seem to be the worst thing," she tells the London Daily Mail's Victoria Moore.

"Closely followed by mobile phones - particularly if they're being used in an enclosed space - the base stations of cordless telephones and mobile phone masts," adds Moore.

"I have to restrict the amount of time I spend on the computer or watching television, and make sure I don't have too many household appliances on at once, because that sets me off as well."

Sarah doesn't appear to be a flake. She's been a banker and television producer.

"Now, I have no income because I can't work and I have no choice but to devote all my energies to fighting to find out more about my allergies," she says.
