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

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 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.

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?

Boutet - Salmon Arm Observer
" . . . "The right to have a clean environment is being taken away from us and we can't really realize it."
Boutet took her convictions to a recent all-candidates meeting on microwave radiation, where she was asked to speak of her experiences.
Her family moved away from the Lower Mainland to escape all the pollution from cell phone towers and Wi-Fi that spills nearly everywhere because of the density there. Her husband had to stay, though, in order to make a living.
After several moves, Boutet's family is living in the Shuswap. She was pleasantly surprised to find people here who take the issue seriously and whose homes are accessible and welcoming.

" . . . I say there must be an end to nonchalance, lack of consideration, indifference and lack of respect on the part of society. Never accept discriminatory treatment or an insulting special treatment. Stand up for others' rights and in this way you'll stand up for your own future . . .

" . . . If you think you are responding adversely to electromagnetic radiation, it is important that you share this document with your doctor/health care professional. EHS is an emerging illness that has not been taught in most medical schools, especially in North America. However, it is increasing at an alarming rate and now children as well as adults are adversely affected by this radiation.
"According to Hallberg and Oberfeld (2006) the prevalence of EHS is increasing and by 2017, 50% of the population is likely to be electrically hypersensitive . . .

"Wi-Fi: Is It Safe?"
Citizens for Safe Technology is a not-for-profit educational society made up of parents, grandparents, teachers, business professionals, scientists, politicians and lawyers concerned about the exponential increase in public exposure to harmful wireless technologies.
We believe a profound urgency exists to protect the unsuspecting public, especially children, youth and pregnant mothers from unsafe wireless technologies.
