“Anecdotal evidence indicated that AC (alternating current) electric fields are often involved when people are knowingly “sensitive” to electricity. Often referred to as “wired and tired,” they may experience conditions ranging from a rather vague discomfort or irritation. to headaches, fatigue and other symptoms.
In my observation, almost everyone today experiences an underlying level of “wired and tired” due to electric fields. Some individuals handle it better, perhaps having a stronger resistance to life’s stresses. Others are more sensitive, and in extreme cases may experience allergies, depression, environmental illness, or chronic fatigue syndrome. If you are the type of person who feels better when the electricity suddenly goes off during a power failure, or when walking out in the woods away from any electricity, you may be sensitive to electric fields.
Most electric field exposures come from building wiring. The remainder come from cords, appliances and nearby power lines. Electric fields are easy to reduce. Walls and ceilings can be painted with special shielded paint. New electrical wiring can be installed using shielded materials. In many homes, certain electrical circuits can be switched off at night, reducing the fields during sleep.”
