Woman allergic to electricity

18th May 2011

A British woman cannot use an electric kettle and cannot have neighbours with wireless internet because she is allergic to electricity.

Janice Tunnicliffe, 55, from Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, claims to have a rare condition called electrosensitivity. She cannot bear to be anywhere near electromagnetic fields of any kind and, as a result, she cannot watch television, listen to the radio or talk on a mobile phone and has been left completely isolated from the modern world by her condition. Mrs Tunnicliffe was struck down with the illness after receiving chemotherapy for bowel cancer three years ago.
