EHS: Symptoms and Support


Electrohypersensitivity (EHS) is also more accurately referred to as electromagnetic intolerance syndrome. 
Like chemical sensitivity, it is an environmentally-caused intolerance and disability that needs to be more fully understood and recognized.

 EHS SYMPTOMS and SUPPORT: INTRODUCTION to TOPIC



May 26
2015

In my opinion, based on what I have seen and read, those at highest risk for EHS include the fetus, children, the elderly, the infirm, those with predisposing morbidities--usually cardiac and neurological--and those with a toxic overload. They are all at risk for adverse health effects from this insufficiently regulated, poorly studied, man-made environmental health hazard--the radio and microwaves ranging from 10 kilohertz to 10 gigahertz to hundreds of gigahertz. Sources causing a majority of problems in the patients we have seen include airport technology, cellphone units and towers, cellphones, Wi-Fi routers, Wi-Fi hubs, laptops, iPads, baby monitors, and fluorescent lights. Signs and symptoms include skin irritations, headaches, tinnitus or ringing in the ears, brain fog, listlessness, fatigue, concentration problems, dizziness, low mood, irritability, malaise, heart palpitations, nausea, and gastrointestinal disturbances.

Cell phone headaches, cell tower blues

View from Trent - Magda Havas

"Imagine a world identical to our own with one exception everyone is deaf. There is no radio and television remains at the level of the silent movie. Telephone communication is visual but beyond that the world is very much like our own.

"What would such a world be like?

 "It would probably be very noisy, since there would be no need for noise control and no regulations to limit noise. Car engines would still roar, perhaps louder than they do now, tires would squeal, birds would sing, and thunder would rumble across the sky but we would not be able to hear any of this.

"Now, imagine that some people in this world can hear. They don't realize they are any different except in a few subtle ways. They can predict the coming of storms. They claim to "hear" thunder at a distance. They have difficulty sleeping. In the middle of the night they hear roaring engines, squealing tires, horns blaring and other things that are silent to the rest of us. Because of their poor sleep, they are tired during the day. They become anxious and worried. The noise frightens them but only they can hear it so they begin to question their sanity. . . .

"Electromagnetic hypersensitivity has not yet been accepted by our medical professionals. Just like chronic fatigue syndrome, chemical hypersensitivity, and seasonal affective disorder (SAD) it will take some time and many complaining patients before that changes. In the meantime, those suffering need to reduce their exposure to radio frequency radiation not a simple thing to do in our highly technical society . . .

 "Our government can play a vital role. . .

Parents Fight Wireless Radiation in Schools

Interview with Dafna Tachover, attorney representing Wi-Fi victims

Dafna Tachover was a highly-paid professional (lawyer, IT professional) in NYC when she became severely electrosensitive as a result of wireless Apple laptops and had to live off-grid in a cabin for several years to regain her health. You can read her story here:

She came back fighting for others, especially kids in schools, to prevent them from being made as sick as she was.

In light of insurance EMR-liability exclusion clauses, think really hard before installing more Wi-Fi and cell antennas in or around schools, hospitals, and other public places. Return to wired connections to avoid the insurance and liablilty implications.

RESULTS:

The most frequently reported symptoms from exposure to smart meters were (1) insomnia, (2) headaches, (3) tinnitus, (4) fatigue, (5) cognitive disturbances, (6) dysesthesias (abnormal sensation), and (7) dizziness. The effects of these symptoms on people's lives were significant . . . .

MY ILL HEALTH FROM WIRELESS SMART METERS

ElectroSensitivity UK (ES-UK) 2012

  • What ill health may I suffer from wireless Smart Meters? 
  • What ill health have other people suffered from wireless Smart Meters? 
  • How can I protect myself and others from wireless Smart Meters? 
  • What radiation do wireless Smart Meters emit? 
  • Why are "non-thermal" and "heating" limits so different? 
  • Do people with Electro-sensitivity have any human rights as regards wireless Smart Meters? 
  • Where can I find out more about Electro-sensitivity and wireless Smart Meters?

Electrical Hypersensitivity (Australia)

Victorian Smart Meter Forum

Electrical hypersensitivity is estimated to affect up to 10% of the population and is recognised as a functional disorder in Sweden, Spain and Canada. Nicole investigates the symptoms, discusses who is likely to be susceptible and explores the sources in the average home.

One step closer - Europe

One step closer towards gaining recognition for the rights of electromagnetic hypersensitivity throughout Europe

' . . . Awareness is growing and the UK Radiation Research Trust congratulate the 110 EESC members who took the first step towards their duty of care voting for the original opinion which supported the human rights of EHS people as presented to the EESC by Dr Isaac Jamieson in the call for support for the right to life, prohibition of torture and prohibition of discrimination as required to be part of all policy making. The Radiation Research Trust call on all members to listen to independent scientists and medical doctors with expertise in this area of concern and remind policy makers of their duty of care to protect those fundamental principles and basic human values.

Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity and Human Rights

Commentary to the European Economic and Social Committee on the European Convention on Human Rights

Attached is a commentary by Dr. Isaac Jamieson on Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity and Human Rights. As more of us are forced to live with higher and higher levels of exposure, the number of people who are sensitive is increasing dramatically. Victims suffer in many ways, including discrimination. It is vital that human rights be respected and measures taken to provide a safer environment.

The following is brief commentary on Human Rights, as related to electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) and other conditions that may be affected as a result of exposure to manmade electromagnetic fields (EMFs).  In this present work, relevant sections of the convention are indicated in the text below and their implications discussed.      

It is intended that this commentary will be of benefit to policy makers, industry and members of the general public.

Of special note is the chart on page 2 showing exposure limits in various countries. Canada and the US have the same limits as ICNIRP recommends. Please see the statement at the bottom of the page - there are techniques and wireless devices that can cut levels significantly. Why aren't they being used in North America?
