Phil Inkly is forced to live in a caravan in the woods because exposure to technology makes him ill.
The former computer technician is unable to withstand being around wi-fi, cell phones, microwaves or anything else electrical. The condition, known as Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity, has cost him his social life and his livelihood. He now lives in a remote part of England in a small caravan to be as far from modern technology as possible.
"I'm always ill and can only handle being in remote areas with little radiation so because of this, money is tight," he said. "I've been passionate about technology from childhood, previously working as a sound engineer and tutor of music technology. I frequently repaired computers for family and friends -- all was fine until things started going wireless."
"Imagine if you were a food critic and suddenly developed a wheat/dairy/corn/carb/fat allergy."
