“Professor Denis Henshaw, professor of human radiation effects at Bristol University, says that “a huge and substantive body of evidence indicates a range of adverse health effects”. He estimates that the smog causes some 9,000 cases of depression.”
“Perhaps strangest of all, there is increasing evidence that the smog causes some people to become allergic to electricity, leading to nausea, pain, dizziness, depression and difficulties in sleeping and concentrating when they use electrical appliances or go near mobile phone masts. Some are so badly affected that they have to change their lifestyles.”
“While not yet certain how it is caused, both the WHO and the HPA accept that the condition exists, and the UN body estimates that up to three in every 100 people are affected by it.”
“Case History: ‘I felt I was going into meltdown’”
“Until a year ago, Sarah Dacre reckoned she had a “blessed life”. Running her own company, and living in an expensive north London home, the high-earning divorcee described herself as “fab, fit and 40s”. Then suddenly the sight in her right eye failed: she first noticed it when she was unable to read an A-Z map. Soon she was getting pains and numbness in her joints. She could not sleep and spent nights “pacing about like a caged lion”. Her short-term memory failed and if she took notes to remind her, she would forget she had made them.”
“The symptoms got worse whenever she was exposed to electricity. She could not use a computer for more than five minutes without becoming nauseous. Even using a telephone landline gave her a buzzing in the ear and made her feel she was “going into meltdown”.
The curse of the mobile phone age: around your home there are countless gadgets whose electrical fields, scientists now warn, are linked to depression, miscarriage and cancer

Electromagnetic radiation is generally described as a self-propagating wave in space with electric and magnetic components. These components oscillate at right angles to each other and to the direction of propagation, and are in phase with each other. Electromagnetic radiation is classified into types according to the frequency of the wave: these types include, in order of increasing frequency, radio waves, microwaves, infrared radiation, visible light, ultraviolet radiation, X-rays and gamma rays. In some technical contexts the entire range is referred to as just ‘light’. 
Electromagnetic waves of much lower frequency than visible light were first predicted by Maxwell’s equations and subsequently discovered by Heinrich Hertz. Maxwell derived a wave form of the electric and magnetic equations, revealing the wavelike nature of electric and magnetic fields and their symmetry.
According to these equations, a time-varying electric field generates a magnetic field and vice versa. Therefore, as an oscillating electric field generates an oscillating magnetic field, the magnetic field in turn generates an oscillating electric field, and so on. These oscillating fields together form an electromagnetic wave.

“Electromagnetic Radiation and Light Wave Energetics”
“All matter is immersed in it and it penetrates everywhere. No doors are closed to ether.”
- Albert Einstein, The Evolution of Physics 1
“The characteristic propagation of energetic electromagnetic radiation (EMR), including light wave propagation in the visible region of the electromagnetic spectrum, is somewhat more complex than simply moving an object from point A to point B:
1. A ray of polychromatic white (colorless) light propagates (radiates) as a diverse mixture of periodic monochromatic waves in the visible region of the electromagnetic spectrum. Furthermore, electromagnetic radiation necessarily involves the energetic generation of transverse electric and magnetic fields which are perpendicular (90 degrees, orthogonal) to each other and perpendicular (90 degrees, orthogonal) to the rectilinear (straight line) direction of propagation from point A to point B within the fundamental, irreducible, nonmaterial energy domain.
2. The energetic, transverse (orthogonal) electromagnetic fields self-generate through mutual induction after leaving the original source. Thus the transverse (orthogonal) electromagnetic fields energetically sustain any uninterrupted propagation of electromagnetic radiation such as a ray of white (colorless) light, or an emitted photon of higher or lower frequency outside the visible region of the electromagnetic spectrum.
Comparing the complexity of light wave and photon propagation with the classic example of water waves created on the calm surface of a lake or pond when a small stone is lobbed into it, the transverse (orthogonal) electric and magnetic fields of light wave (photon) propagation are analogous to the waves or ripples generated horizontally on the surface of the water, and the direction of light wave (photon) propagation is analogous to the stone sinking straight to the bottom.
Nonetheless, the hydrodynamic/electromagnetic imagery suffers a serious breakdown at this point.
Water waves are generated and propagated only transversely (90 degrees, orthogonal) away from a source in the horizontal plane. In marked contrast, the energetic electric and magnetic fields are not only generated perpendicular (90 degrees, orthogonal) to the direction of propagation, they are also simultaneously generated in the direction of propagation. Therefore – given sufficient time – energetic, self-sustaining propagation and constant uniform motion enables any unhindered electromagnetic wave or photon of visible light to cross an unlimited expanse of the material universe at the speed of light.”

When referring to electromagnetic frequencies, we open up a large topic which includes jargon from many fields of interest. Some EMF’s are produced naturally from the earth. These are not harmful, and in fact, can be beneficial. Other EMF’s are produced through various man-made or man-engineered processes, such as video display terminals, computer monitors and the like. Some of emitted frequencies can be harmful, especially in certain amounts. There is much discussion about where the boundaries are as to what is helpful, harmful or destructive.
Researchers are looking at this from different perspectives. Studies are done with various voltages. You might read about EMF’s being described in any of these ways:
60 Hz Magnetic Fields
Electromagnetic Field Interactions
Extremely Low Frequency
High Transmission Lines
Magnetic Field Effect
Microwave Electromagnetic Fields
Modulated VHF fields
Non-Ionizing Microwave Radiation
Power Transmission Lines
Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields
Radio Frequency Range
Radio Wave Radiation
RF Electromagnetic Radiation
Video Display Terminals
Weak magnetic fields
Medium Frequency Electromagnetic Fields
“This challenge was first thrown down in 1999. We have had not one single person daring to take it up and thereby win a thousand pounds. In June 2003 I doubled the stakes! First take a look at our studies on sudden infant death syndrome, ME, and on childhood leukaemia …..
NRPB investigation levels advise 12000 Volts per metre at ELF frequencies at the level where investigation becomes necessary to see if the field is strong enough to inflict adverse health effects from burning. Below this level no special precautions are necessary, they say. Power utilities around the world hide behind this advice (in some countries the level is only 5000 Volts per metre, (in Russia it is 500 Volts per metre…and the utilities broadly deny that non-thermal effects from Electric field exposures below 5000 Volts per metre could be hazardous.
…studies …have shown that people sleeping in bedplaces where the ELF electric field is elevated above normal levels (say above 20 Volts per metre) there is serious ill health from chronic exposure (asthenias and leukaemias in adults, cot death in children)…”
“The £2000 ($3000) Coghill Challenge is:
Place any human infant of less than three months age to sleep each night for at least eight hours in an ELF electric field of 100 Volts per metre for thirty days. My studies predict that child will die, or become so seriously ill that the test will have to be called off….
I will personally bet any NRPB member of staff or any any electric power utility worker around the world £2000 (or US$3000) willing to do this experiment, that my prediction will prove correct.
Only one £2000 payment will be made …..
Only power worker employee and NRPB staff employee parents are eligible for the Coghill Challenge.
This challenge was originally mounted on 4 July 1999, and was extended as from 4 July 2003.”
