*SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- *A home in Sacramento's south Natomas 
neighborhood is surrounded by sheet metal, and neighbors are calling it 
an eyesore.The D'Souza family lives in the home on Timberwood Court, and 
claims the aluminium pieces are necessary to protect them from unknown 
neighbors who have been bombarding them with radio waves and making them 

"(It's) a shield to protect against radiation, because microwave 
radiation is reflected off of aluminium, so it's a protective measure," 
resident Sarah D'Souza said.

The D'Souzas said the bombardment began after the first anniversary of 
the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, and that the radio waves have 
caused them health problems ranging from headaches to lupus.Sacramento 
Code Enforcement officials have gotten involved and ordered the family 
to remove the metal by Monday or face a misdemeanor citation."Eleven 
years in Sacramento and few other years in Southern California and this 
is the first time I've ever seen (anything like this). The inside of the 
house is also covered with foil and the beds are covered with a 
foil-like material as well," Sacramento Code Enforcement spokesman Josh 
Pino said.The D'Souzas said they will comply with the order and remove 
the sheet metal, but they also plan to gather evidence to show city 
officials what they believe is a problem with radiation.
