    This is an old paper (1997) but in view of the fact that a number of people find they are adversely affected by electrical devices, it is of interest. Has there been further supporting evidence since this paper was published?

    I discovered when laid up with hypertensive encephalopathy ( a late addition to ME with very similar neurological symptoms) that electrical wireless devices exacerbated the encephalopathy significantly in seconds and I had to keep them out of my room. I know that is not relevant to the reactivation of viruses, but it is further proof to me at least that electrical devices are best avoided whenever possible.

    I did not realise there was so much research on this topic. This site has a summary of a large number of papers: http://www.emf-portal.de/?l=e
