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.

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?

Family Takes Refuge from Wi-Fi

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.  

"This is a better place for us as we have people who understand."

Olle Johansson's views on EHS, handicap laws and regulations 2014

Karolinska Institutet, Department of Neuroscience, Experimental Dermatology Unit

" . . . 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 . . .

Austrian Medical Association Guidelines

For Diagnosing and Treating Patients With Electrohypersensitivity - Includes link to Consensus paper of the Austrian Medical Association's EMF Working Group

" . . . 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 . . .

"Excerpts from the Austrian Medical Association document Guideline."

Doctor's Information Package

Addressed to Medical Professionals. Useful to all. Updated July 19, 2014

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 . . . "

Information categories contained in this package: 

  1. Microwave Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Radiation - General 
  2. Smart Meters
  3. Interference with medical devices / Smart Meter Risk
  4. Children
  5. EHS/ES - Electrosensitivity
