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

' . . . I'm trying not to let it get to me, trying not to get paranoid and start imagining things that aren't really there, on top of what I know is there. Who am I fleeing? No one. What crime have I committed? None. Yet I'm on the run from the biggest, stealthiest, most insidious take-over of all time. And I'm all alone. The corporate giants hold all the cards and the government won't help. They know I've figured out what's really going on, but they don't want anyone else to know. There is nowhere safe for me to go and no safe way for me to get there. . . .
Addressed to Medical Professionals. Useful to all. Updated July, 2016
The following package is for those who wish to approach their doctors with information regarding the possible health risks from non-thermal microwave radiation. It contains links organized into specific health effect categories. These links can be printed out according to personal areas of need or concern, and used to start a dialogue with doctors who may not as yet have associated certain health conditions with EMF or RF exposure.
The introductory letter on pages 1 and 2 contains a link to the entire list, and may be useful to your doctor as a reference tool.
"Dear Medical Professional:
"Your patient has asked us for support in providing you with information regarding the possible health risks from non-thermal microwave radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation, recently reclassified by the WHO/IARC as a Class 2B, possible human carcinogen.
"This WHO risk category also includes lead, DDT, chloroform, and dioxane, and is relevant to all wireless devices emitting radiofrequency electromagnetic fields, including cordless phones, cell phones, IPads, Wi-Fi routers, wireless games, baby monitors, and smart meters . . .
"Many doctors have already given medical advice to their patients by way of a medical letter or note on a prescription form stating that the patient should avoid, for medical reasons, living in a residence or residential complex at which a wireless meter is operating in order to maintain their health or avoid aggravating a medical condition. This medical advice stating the health condition and advising the patient that they should avoid ongoing exposure to wireless radiofrequency and smart meter emissions will allow your patient to participate in the Human Rights Action currently underway. We are hopeful that the individual's right to protect their health as advised by their medical doctor will be upheld by the Human Rights Tribunal, and this forced exposure within their own home to undesirable microwave radiofrequency emissions will be replaced with reasonable and respectful accommodation by BC Hydro . . . "

"Wi-Fi health advocates were exultant today at news that an Israeli TV documentary titled "How We are Killing Ourselves--Wireless Radiation" won a high rating and Haifi ordered Wi-Fi removed from all schools.
"The 30-minute documentary about the "epidemic of Electro-Sensitivity" (ES) aired at 9 p.m. April 12 and "received the highest rating of the day," according to Dafna Tachover, an attorney with offices in Israel and New York.
"She provided a link to the show to Wi-Fi health advocates in other countries noting that while the video is in Hebrew there are some interviews in English. [7'42" and 11'20"].
"Tachover said the director planned to do 10 minutes on ES as part of a film about the diseases of the 21st century but after working with health advocates "understood the extent of the problem and the lie and how important it is to give an uncompromising warning to the public." It was then decided to do 30 minutes mainly on ES and Wi-Fi in schools. . . .
"Said Tachover: "Electro-Sensitivity is an epidemic and not three percent of the population. We are now in the double digits in terms of ES. The public must be told. Wi-Fi in schools is a disaster and as a person who spends two to four hours every day on the phone with people and children who got sick, with many contemplate committing suicide, I urge you all to be uncompromising. The truth, and all of it must be told. Continued good luck to us all and thanks to anyone out there who stands up to evil and stupidity."
Cancer and FM-transmitters in Europe (Orjan Hallberg)
Stockholm, December 24, 2015: An analysis of data from 24 European countries,
published by Electromagnetic Biology and Medicine, reports that cancer risks are significantly
associated with the density of horizontally polarized FM radio transmitters such as those found in
Sweden. This is the first study ever published about this strong association. . .
Update for your information regarding Orjan Hallberg, the author of this study and many others:
"One of the most respected and dedicated scientists who has studied wireless radiation for decades died recently. Prior to 2002 he was working for Ericsson wireless. When he was told to stop publishing articles about the health effects of microwave radiation, he quit and worked independently. He was still working on this important issue right up to the time of his death. Some of his colleagues have circulated some of his studies and reports. (Available on this website). "It is too early to predict future rates of brain cancer, but these preliminary findings suggest that we should prepare for about a doubled brain cancer incidence rate and possibly as high as 25 times the incidence we have today. One result of such a worldwide increase in brain cancers would be a dramatic shortage of neurosurgeons leading to increased mortality. Any statement about harmless cell phones based on only 5-10 years of use has no scientific basis due to the long latency times involved.
The Potential Impact of Mobile Phone Use on Trends in Brain and CNS Tumours (Hallberg)
"And just a month before he died, this article was published, warning about that FM transmitters have been linked to melanomas, and a change in the antenna could prevent this. Stockholm, December 24, 2015: An analysis of data from 24 European countries, published by Electromagnetic Biology and Medicine, reports that cancer risks are significantly associated with the density of horizontally polarized FM radio transmitters such as those found in Sweden. This is the first study ever published about this strong association. . .

"Wired Health" will be a cyber conference with dozens of participants not only from the U.S. but Canada, U.K., France, Germany and other countries.
"An agenda is being drawn up to compete with the agenda of "Wi-Fi Now 2016" which has 60+ speakers.
"BULLETIN: After accepting a press reservation for O'Dwyer's, Heidi Jepsen, chief administrator of Wi-Fi Now 2016, today said no O'Dwyer reporter will be allowed to cover the conference, cancelling the reservation.
"Attempts to place health advocate speakers on the Wi-Fi conference have been rebuffed by the organizers.
"Claus Hetting, CEO and chairman of Wi-Fi Now and CEO of Hetting Consulting, Arhus, Denmark, told this website that the conference "is not a forum for discussing health issues of any kind." . . .

Interview with Janis Hoffmann from Parents for Safe Schools / Citizens' Forum
Janis Hoffmann from Parents for Safe Schools discusses Wi-Fi Radiation in Schools with Walt McGinnis. Children with Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS) should have schools free from Wi-Fi to attend.
Papers Published in December 2015 Issue of "Reviews on Environmental Health" David O. Carpenter and Dominique Belpomme
"This issue of Reviews on Environmental Health consists of invited papers on several syndromes of uncertain etiology but ones that pose serious and severe debilification and interference with quality of life for those affected. Often in aggregate called "idiopathic environmental intolerance" they include electromagnetic hypersensitivity, multiple chemical sensitivity, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, Gulf War Illness and likely some others less well defined. All have in common fatigue, pain (especially headaches and joint and muscle pain), often altered cognitive function, cardiac problems, and impaired mobility and balance. Often, but not always, some specific event or exposure triggers the initiation of the syndrome. Because the symptoms are relatively non-specific, patients may unfortunately be referred to psychiatric rather than medical care. There are few effective treatments other than reducing exposure to triggering environmental factors.
"There is increasing world-wide awareness that these are real diseases that affect a significant percentage of the population, but still attract significant controversy. We hope that these peer-reviewed publications will not only stimulate awareness of the problem but also stimulate science-based research on treatment regimes for symptomatic relief and reversal of the disease processes. All of these pathologic disorders should be recognized by the scientific and medical communities and international health institutions. This issue presents state-of-the-art reviews of the scientific advances in the pathophysiologic understanding of these disorders for medical practitioners and research scientists.
