Wireless telegraphy sickness has now been added to the list of modern diseases, though it is accused of attacking only the operators of high-power instruments on shipboard. It appears as an anaamia, or blood deficiency, with its consequent general weakness. The German doctors who have recently discovered it find that the number of red corpuscles in the blood of their patients is greatly reduced. They have ascribed, the cause partly to the narrow, oooped-up quarters of wireless operators on shipboard, and partly to the- excessive ozonising of the air by the high-frequency currents of electricity need in powerful wireless plants.
