Electrohypersensitivity: a functional impairment due to an inaccessible environment.

[In Svezia l’Elettrosensibilità è riconosciuta come un danno funzionale causato dall’ambiente in cui si vive.
Ai malati vengono forniti protezione giuridica massima ed una serie di aiuti, con l’obiettivo semplice e unico di consentire a questi soggetti di vivere una vita alla pari degli altri in un società basata sull’uguaglianza.

In Italia, soprattutto coloro che sono affetti dalle forme più gravi di Elettrosensibilità, sono costretti a vivere in condizioni fortemente lesive dei diritti umani: per la sofferenza fisica continua derivante dalla impossibilità di evitare ciò che li fa stare male, per l’isolamento sociale obbligato, per il disagio economico conseguente alla loro inabilità al lavoro e per la totale mancanza di aiuti e tutele.

ABSTRACT

In Sweden, electrohypersensitivity is recognized as a functional impairment which implies only the environment as the culprit. The Swedish view provides persons with this impairment a maximal legal protection, it gives them the right to get accessibility measures for free, as well as governmental subsidies and municipality economic support, and to provide them with special Ombudsmen (at the municipality, the EU, and the UN level, respectively), the right and economic means to form disability organizations and allow these to be part of national and international counterparts, all with the simple and single aim to allow persons with the functional impairment electrohypersensitivity to live an equal life in a society based on equality. They are not seen as patients, the do not have an overriding medical diagnosis, but the ‘patient’ is only the inferior and potentially toxic environment. This does not mean that a subjective symptom of a functionally impaired can not be treated by a physician, as well as get sick-leave from their workplace as well as economic compensation, and already in the year 2000 such symptoms were identified in the Internal Code of Diagnoses, version 10 (ICD-10; R68.8/now W90), and have been since. But the underlying cause still remains only the environment.
