What is Electromagnetic Sensitivity? August 1, 2006

Electrical sensitivity (ES)), sometimes also called electrosensitivity or electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS), is a condition where a person reports physical symptoms which appear to be aggravated by electric or magnetic fields, or other electromagnetic waves, such as mobile phone signals, at exposure levels tolerated by the general public. ES has similarities to multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) and chronic fatigue syndrome / ME. A majority of people reporting ES also claim to suffer from MCS (Irvine 2005, Rea 1991, Smith 1997, Grant 1997). It can be seen as a type of electromagnetic radiation hazard, but at levels well below those defined by current international exposure guidelines (ICNIRP).


While this may seem like someone else’s problem, what is really happening is that some people, for a host of reasons, are reacting sooner than others.  Electropollution is affecting everyone.  It is invisible and cumulative.  Some researchers believe that if precautions are not taken that 1/4 of the population will be showing significant and debilitating symptoms within 10 years.

We are seeing the effects more and more, but many of us think being exhausted, stressed and depressed is normal.

It amazes me that there are people who don’t believe there’s a problem at all. Will they listen when they read reports like this? ELECTROMAGNETIC SENSITIVITY (EMS) IS A WORLDWIDE EPIDEMIC
All the reading I’ve been doing shows long term cell phone use as a huge health risk. I’m not giving up my phone or my computer, nor am I moving to the high mountains as a hermit, but I am protecting myself.

Many products protect you from One source of radiation, but with EMFs bombarding us from every one else’s cell phones, cell towers, wi-fi networks, power lines…the list goes on.
