Massachusetts parents say school Wi-Fi sickened child

SOUTHBOROUGH, Mass. -- A Massachusetts family insists a private school's internet connection is the culprit behind their son's illness.

The parents of a 12-year-old boy are suing the school in Southborough claiming he has electromagnetic hypersensitivity syndrome and radio frequency emissions from the school's strong wireless internet network.

They say the Wi-Fi triggered their son's headaches, nosebleeds and nausea since 2013.

There is currently research being conducted on the impact of Wi-Fi on our bodies, but most have found there is no consistent clear evidence it has any effects in humans.
