After three years of living in a building that housed a wireless Internet mast (antenna), Dr. Carlos Sosa developed severe electromagnetic sensitivity. No longer able to study or work, and with extreme fatigue and pain, he searched his city of Medellin for a safe haven for his family.
Dr. Sosa finally got some answers and help from renowned environmental physician William Rea, MD, of Dallas, Texas.
Dr. Sosa’s exposure was extreme, and the extent of his hypersensitivity is rare. But we all need to ask ourselves what damage daily, low levels of exposures may be doing to us, and what we can do about them.
The Dr. Carlos Sosa Story
My name is Dr. Carlos Sosa, M.D. (physician and surgeon) and I’m presently living in Medellin, Colombia in South America. During the month of May 2006, I was forced to leave my house because of symptoms caused to me and my family by the microwaves of a wireless Internet (WiFi) mast (or antenna). The structure had been in our building for nearly three years, and the company that owned it had been slowly raising the transmission frequency.
I had to leave my house altogether with my whole family, only to find that the city was flooded by some 4000 masts; there wasn’t a single irradiated spot for us to live in. In May I started feeling a terrible sense of unwellness: headaches, dizziness, insomnia, nausea, irritability, amnesia or forgetfulness, and lack of attention or concentration capacity. I couldn’t bear being close to my house or to any other microwave mast—be it cell phone or WiFi antennas. I had to leave my house altogether with my whole family, only to find that the city was flooded by some 4000 masts; there wasn’t a single irradiated spot for us to live in.
I could sense the electromagnetic fields that were being given off by these antennas when they were blocks away, before I could even see them. Many times I felt the sensation of a burning candle in the back part of my head (occipital area). We had to move to five different apartments all over the city because the situation was the same no matter where we went. I couldn’t find physical or mental peace anywhere in the city. I couldn’t study again which, being a medical doctor, is a tragedy. Studying is my life and I wasn’t able to remember or concentrate. I had to resign my position at the hospital where I worked because there were microwave cell phone masts around the hospital. I could not bear being inside the Emergency Service because the electromagnetic contamination was too high, and I felt pain just trying to find a place to park the car there. I used to go there every day.
