To those sceptics who like to throw out the 'tin foil hat' line, clearly more information is needed on the very real condition known as EHS. Hopefully you are willing to at least consider what the Canadian Human Rights Commission and many world governments and health agencies including the World Health Organization (WHO) have established already.
In addition to numerous other health problems, electromagnetic pollution has been associated with an increase in the number of individuals suffering from a condition known as electrohypersensitivity (EHS).
EHS is defined by the World Health Organization as: "Â…a phenomenon where individuals experience adverse health effects while in the vicinity of devices emanating electric, magnetic, or electromagnetic fields."
In Sweden, it is classified as a disability . The Canadian Human Rights Commission report also acknowledges environmental sensitivity attributed to electromagnetic exposure.
Researchers estimate that approximately 5-10% of the population has severe symptoms of EHS, and another 35% of the population has moderate symptoms such as an impaired immune system and chronic illness (Havas, 2007).
Because EHS is an environmental sensitivity, avoidance of triggers is essential in preventing symptoms and regaining good health. Like other environmental sensitivities, EHS presents with a variety of symptoms and it is common to have overlapping conditions.
For instance, Multiple Chemical Sensitivity and Fibromyalgia, among other illnesses, are common in people with EHS and severity of symptoms in people with M.S., Diabetes, and other illnesses have been shown to be exacerbated with exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMF) and abated with mitigation of the EMF source(s).
SYMPTOMS OF ELECTRO HYPERSENSITIVITY
Headaches, depression, palpitations, sinusitis, skin rash, deteriorating vision, difficulty concentrating, anxiety, pain or pressure in the chest, asthma, facial flushing, pain or burning in the Eyes, muscle and joint, confusion and spatial disorientation, high blood pressure, bronchitis, itching, pressure in/behind the eyes, memory loss, fatigue, shortness of breath, pneumonia, burning, floaters, dizziness, weakness, arrhythmias, cataracts, nausea, tremors, fast heart rate, swelling of face and neck, irritability, muscle spasms numbness, leg/foot pain, tingling, "Flu-like" symptoms, hyperactivity, fever, altered reflexes, insomnia,
