She feels ''burned'' any wavelength , whether Wi- Fi , mobile phones , home appliances , but also extremely low frequency (50 Hz) generated by the flow of current in electrical cables . Cautain Anne , 57, is a great électrohypersensible . '' Since 2009 , I am a real camera , I know that such a place , there is an antenna or a transformer I feel the power into my nerve endings. '' , She says , scarlet cheeks, barefoot wrist and connected to a steel post sunk into the ground , to '' unload '' .

The journey to reach Boulc from the Hautes-Alpes , where she lives in the former stables of a forest house candlelit and heated stove , was exhausted. She has spent wrapped in blankets in a converted truck Faraday cage ( a watertight enclosure to electromagnetic fields ), led by his daughter, which it totally depends . Finally, it will be very little on the site , where some waves reach him , despite the isolation.

Anne Cautain has not always been intolerant to RF . His symptoms occurred six months after the installation of Wi -Fi terminals University City Nice, where she worked as a housekeeper . ''I started to feel intense neurological pain , dizziness, memory loss and my sleep was split , described it . Then I no longer supported my apartment , located near antennas .
