‘Hearing, eyesight, body functions, memory – all fading. Am I disappearing?’ An impassioned article by Toni Turner

[via Bürgerwelle e.V.]


masts80“I lay floating in a hot salt water bath, head back and salty tears falling into the water. The crushing pain in my head is exhausting. I’m begging God to let me live.

“My hearing is fading. My eyesight is fading. My body functions are fading. My memory is fading. I feel like I am disappearing. This is the tenth night of the disappearing act.

“Ten days ago I had thought I had a handle on this invisible force. I really thought I’d been so careful. Yet, there in the meeting room I again felt a searing pain in my head. The crushing in my temples increased over the next two days.”

Fortunately Lynn Attwood, 55, is now one of the luckier ones. She researched the nose bleeds, the crushing headaches, nausea and dizziness and found ES-UK, a charity established to help people with electrical sensitivity (ES).

Anyone can develop the condition, including children. Surveys suggest 30% of people are slightly allergic to electromagnetic frequencies, usually without knowing it, 3% moderately, and under 1% severely. Numbers for long-term effects are not yet known. Nor is it known whether today’s ES sufferers are the canaries at the sharp end of the affect which could in future be detrimental to most of the population’s health.

ES is caused by being exposed to electromagnetic radiation. It has been known as an illness since the Russians used it against an American Embassy in the Cold War. The Russians now protect their population from it. This illness was then documented in industries such as radio and telecommunications when workers were irradiated, then later in cases where there had been badly installed electrical wiring and electrical appliances.

More recently the incidence of the condition has proliferated as we have been exposed to 1000 times the level of electromagnetic fields than we were 10 years ago. The wireless-way-of-life arrived and with it illness. First came mobiles and telephone masts, then wifi for computers, doorbells and baby alarms, to name but a few.

Diagnostic tests such as cerebral blood profusion scans, heart rate variability and molecular markers show that ES is the body’s physical reaction to EM exposure.

Now Britain is on the cusp of a new wave of electromagnetic pollution, the pulsating “smart” meters wireless revolution. It is to be delivered by our utility services such as gas, electricity and water at an estimated cost of, wait for it, of £11 billion pounds. Just think – half the estimated cost of renewing Trident will be added to our utility bills while the unknown cost to NHS for biological damage to the nation’s health is impossible to estimate.

It sounds bizarre, yet it is true that none of this burgeoning technology or its consequential energy fields were ever tested on humans before they were introduced. To make matters worse the UK government refuses to take into account the recent revolution in biological understanding, which now informs leading scientists in the field, that humans are indeed being seriously damaged by low level non-thermal radiation such as wifi.

Ask the UK government about this threat to our health and you will receive a quote saying it follows the ICNIRP’s safety guidelines. But a closer look reveals that any knowledgeable expert in the biological field knows that this safety limit, which only detects whether a body is being burnt by this radiation, is totally outdated by our new biological understanding of how our bodies work.

Biologists are now only too aware that we humans are brilliantly balanced electrochemical beings. Our every cell wall can be damaged by low level radiation breaking down its membranes and leaking calcium into our cells, causing havoc. Every organ in our body operates through exact finely targeted electrical impulses or messengers, which can be distorted and interfered by low level electromagnetic fields passing straight through walls and buildings into our bodies.

ES-UK offers sufferers practical advice and education and fights the up-hill battle to inform the public, politicians and relevant bodies about the biological dangers of EM radiation. This growing charity operates in the face of millions of pounds being spent by the enormous telecommunications industry as it attempts to override what it considers any negative scientific findings.

Fortunately groups like ES-UK are finally beginning to turn things around. Current scientific consensus accepts that long-term low-level EM exposure is harmful and that some people are more sensitive to it than others.

The World Health Organisation’s International Agency for Research on Cancer now classifies powerlines and radio frequency radiation as class 2B possible cancer agents. Further, a growing body of scientists now say they should be classed as a 2A probable, or even class 1 certain.

The UK safety limit is also considered obsolete by other countries and the European Parliament has asked all member states to follow the precautionary principle and reduce their citizens’ exposure to EMFs. In response most countries in Europe have a more up-to-date safety level than the UK. The UK government has ignored this advice and gone on full speed to promote our wireless-world.

In Sweden ES is treated as a functional disability and sufferers can get grants to shield their homes from EM radiation. There are mobile phone-free zones in Stockholm and Salzburg public transport systems. Other countries such as Australia, France, Germany and Spain have recognised individual ES cases through disability awards, while Canada and Russia have medical centres specialising in ES. France has gone so far as to legislate to take Wifi out of nursery schools and for wifi to be turned off when not in use in other schools.

Why does our government continually follow its outdated approach to public health? We watched for decades as experts warned about the harm from lead in petrol, more decades as they warned about asbestos and mad cows disease before safety measure were taken to protect the public. ES-UK and many others wonder if industry lobbying, along with the government’s windfall of capital from leasing wavelengths, means that ministers turn a blind eye to what they don’t want to know.

Hundreds of reputable peer-reviewed studies show low level electromagnetic radiation is also likely to be implicated in increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease, brain tumours, cancer, cardiovascular effects, DNA damage, depression, fertility problems, leukaemia and miscarriages.

Somerset GP and ES-UK trustee, Dr Andrew Tresidder is convinced ES is under-recognised as GPs just do not know about this illness. He explains “A number of my patients have symptoms and illnesses that have been caused by exposure to electromagnetic fields, and which have been relieved by avoidance of the same fields.”

ES is usually a progressive condition and over time the sufferer may become sensitive to more devices and frequencies and their reactions may increase in severity.

Meanwhile, new research by the ES-UK has found that a third (33%) of Brits sleep with their mobile phone (which constantly sends out waves of radiation to stay in contact with the closest phone mast) near their bed and 33% also use their smart phone as an alarm clock without turning it to airplane mode.

Possibly the last word should go to Lynn Attwood who says that despite taking note of her body’s early warning system and avoiding exposure she still sometimes gets tricked into thinking somewhere is safe when it is not. She gets blasted and knocked out again from this electromagnetic poison.

No one, even the telecommunications industry or the UK government, will deny that the amount of electromagnetic pollution we are all living amongst is exponentially increasing every single day – far beyond a level any humans have ever experienced.

With that thought in mind Lynn warns,

“I’m just one of the canaries in the coal mine. The cumulative effect is coming your way soon.”

LOCANDINE INFORMATIVE “Dai voce al tuo cervello!”

Agosto 2016 – “Comitato Lecce Via Cavo”, Lecce


Prevista la massima diffusione delle LOCANDINE INFORMATIVE attraverso l’affissione negli AMBULATORI PEDIATRICI presenti sul territorio.

L’iniziativa nasce dalla collaborazione tra COMITATO “LECCE VIA CAVO”, CODACONS, CODICI, CSV SALENTO e ASSOCIAZIONE ITALIANA ELETTROSENSIBILI ed a Giugno 2016 aveva già avuto il patrocinio anche dell’ ORDINE DEI FARMACISTI della Provincia di Lecce, con diffusione nelle farmacie, studi medici ed esercizi commerciali.

La locandina suggerisce alcuni COMPORTAMENTI PER RIDURRE LA PROPRIA ESPOSIZIONE ALLE RADIOFREQUENZE, tra cui: evitare lunghe chiamate con il cellulare, spegnere il wifi quando non è in uso (specie la notte), usare linee cablate a casa o sul lavoro;
PARTICOLARE ATTENZIONE ALLA PROTEZIONE DEI BAMBINI, che sono più vulnerabili: consigliato RIDURRE la loro esposizione alle radiazioni wireless (CELLULARI, CORDLESS, TABLET, WIFI) e PROMUOVERE RETI CABLATE NELLE SCUOLE al posto delle antenne wifi.

Sulla locandina campeggia la scritta “Dai voce al tuo cervello”, slogan scelto dopo che le radiofrequenze utilizzate dalla tecnologia senza fili sono state classificate nel 2011, dall’Agenzia Internazionale per la Ricerca sul Cancro (IARC) dell’Organizzazione Mondiale per la Salute (OMS), come “possibile cancerogeno per l’uomo”.
Da allora sono emerse nuove evidenze scientifiche che correlano l’esposizione alle radiofrequenze con l’insorgenza di tumori maligni al cervello, disordini neurologici , danni al dna, diminuzione dell’udito, sintomi di elettrosensibilità, alterazioni del ritmo cardiaco, insonnia, cali di memoria, disturbi cognitivi.



‘My electro-sensitivity hell’

6 August 2016 – “The Kerryman”

Could our growing dependence on technologies utilising higher and higher frequency radiowaves and electromagnetic fields (EMF) to transmit information be damaging our health?

Could our growing dependence on technologies utilising higher and higher frequency radiowaves and electromagnetic fields (EMF) to transmit information be damaging our health?

There’s at least one section of our community not joining in the frantic clamour for high-speed broadband at present. It’s not that they don’t want the economy to grow and public services to benefit from faster internet connections.

It’s just that the cost to their health of all this rapidly-proliferating telecommunications and electrical technology is already too great a price to pay.

Although not yet a medically-recognised condition, an estimated one per cent of the population believe they suffer from Electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS or ES).

Stinging eyes, all-encompassing fatigue and debilitating sensations clouding the head are among the most common symptoms reported by self-professed EHS sufferers.

And their symptoms are getting worse. At nearly 80, Rathmore woman Delia O’Brien has witnessed her fair share of technological progress, but only in recent decades has her health started to suffer at an increasing rate.

She’s now on a one-woman campaign to raise awareness of what she sees as the very real threat to our health of our growing dependence on technologies utilising higher and higher frequency radiowaves and electromagnetic fields (EMF) to transmit information with seemingly every passing year.

Her concern over the powerful tech is two-fold: There’s the impact on her own health as someone who is ES, but there’s also what she fears is the stealthier impact on the health of the wider population from proliferating radio signals.

“It’s not an easy thing to convince people about,” Delia told The Kerryman.

“As someone with ES it is getting so bad for me now that to get to Killarney I have to drive via Knocknagree and Gneeveguilla to avoid masts and I daren’t go near the town centre anymore. with the EMF generated by masts, CCTV and all these devices today.”

She’s been trying to convince successive Irish governments for years of the threat to the general population she sees, having written to everyone from John Gormley to Taoiseach Enda Kenny, Jan O’Sullivan and, most recently, Minister for Communications Denis Naughten. “The World Health Organisation (WHO) International Agency for Research on Cancer has classified radio-frequency electro magnetic fields as Group 2B, meaning they are possibly carcinogenic to humans, a classification that applies to all RF-emitting devices, including Wi-Fi.”

Public health concerns over the effects of the emerging wireless technologies are not new, just witness the controversy over the one-km rule. Her fears were heightened after a chance meeting with a man at the Coolwood recycling facility outside Killarney recently.

“I would love to hear from him again as I never got his name, but he informed me how his father had passed away from leukemia, one of three to die from the disease in their locality where masts are present,” she said.

As someone deeply sensitive to EMF, Delia looks on herself as something like a canary in the mine for the wider populace – becoming physically sick from what has been described as an ‘electrosmog’ thatshe fears could well be taking a steady, low-level toll on many.

“I’ve written to the National Parents’ Council on the introduction of WiFi to schools which I think is a disgrace.

“God only knows what effect it has on children at such a crucial stage in their physical development.”

If ES people’s symptoms are an indication of concern for all it’s a conversation Ireland needs to be having, Delia said.

While science is sceptical on the ES front, Delia is convinced:

“It is estimated one per cent of the population is ES, which represents over 40,000 people in this country alone. ”

Marion Bartoli ed un problema di “severe electro-sensitivity”…

[Negli articoli italiani nessuno ne ha fatto menzione, ma nelle news estere, in aggiunta al problema della perdita di peso, è stato riportato che:

Bartoli added that she needs gloves when she uses her mobile phone as the virus has caused severe electro-sensitivity.

Perché un dettaglio così importante è stato omesso?

Ad ogni modo ci auguriamo per l’atleta che non si tratti di EHS, perché i segni e sintomi della malattia regrediscono solo con l’allontanamento dai luoghi in cui sia presente Inquinamento Elettromagnetico (ormai la regola in qualsiasi ambiente di vita urbano) e questo aspetto, che già impedisce di poter condurre una vita normale, sarebbe totalmente incompatibile con una carriera ad alti livelli come la sua.]

Marion Bartoli: Former Wimbledon champion ‘fears for life’ over unknown virus

Marion Bartoli
Former world number seven Marion Bartoli retired from professional tennis in 2013

Former Wimbledon champion Marion Bartoli says she “fears for her life” after contracting an unknown virus that has caused her dramatic weight loss.

France’s Bartoli was barred from playing in an invitational event at Wimbledon this week after doctors expressed fears over her health.

Bartoli, who insists she is not anorexic, says the virus is so rare medical experts have no name for it.

“This is not life. I am just surviving,” said the 31-year-old.

Bartoli says she can only eat organic salad leaves and cucumbers without skins, and has to wash with mineral water rather than tap water.

“I fear for my life. I worry that one day my heart will stop,” the 2013 Wimbledon champion told

“My life is a living nightmare. I don’t wish this on anyone but it is gradually getting worse.”

Marion Bartoli beat Germany’s Sabine Lisicki to win the Wimbledon final in 2013

Bartoli added that she needs gloves when she uses her mobile phone as the virus has caused severe electro-sensitivity.

The former world number seven believes she picked up the virus when flying between Australia, New York and India in January and February this year.

She has since lost 20kg and says she will start course of treatment at a clinic on Monday.



Holby City (EHS) Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity


Questo è qualcosa di assolutamente inedito: i personaggi della serie televisiva Britannica della BBC “Holby City” si occupano del loro primo caso di Sindrome da Ipersensibilità Elettromagnetica!
L’episodio in questione è andato in onda il 2 agosto 2016.

Anche se nella vita reale le persone con la EHS sono costrette ad auto-diagnosticarsi la malattia perché i medici non sono ancora addestrati a riconoscerla, questa serie televisiva fornisce alcuni messaggi importanti:
– presentando la EHS come qualcosa di reale (e non psicologico) che deve essere preso sul serio,
– evidenziando che la radiazione in RF/Microonde ha effetti biologici,
– dimostrando come identificare la EHS attraverso la eliminazione della esposizione al WiFi,
– sottolineando che i malati di EHS hanno bisogno di ricevere cure mediche in ambienti privi di inquinamento da segnali WiFi.
Ci auguriamo che questa copertura mediatica sensibilizzi l’opinione pubblica, e susciti l’interesse e la discussione sul problema.


This is groundbreaking stuff: the characters of British BBC hospital drama “Holby City” deal with their first case of EHS!
The episode was broadcast on 2nd August 2016.

Although in real life people with EHS are forced to self-diagnose the disease because doctors are not yet trained to recognise it, this TV soap provides some important messages by:
– presenting EHS as something real (not psychological) that needs to be taken seriously,
– underlining that RF/Microwave radiation has got biological effects,
– demonstrating how to identify EHS by removing the WiFi exposure,
– pointing out that EHS people need to have medical treatment in WiFi-free areas.
We hope that this media coverage will raise public awareness, and it will spark interest and discussion about the issue.

http://bit.ly/2aoDizC – The BBC, writers and actors, put a health issue in the public eye that has been swept under the carpet for way too long. The suffering of those with Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity was displayed and thereby making viewers aware that even when test show a person is perfectly healthy, life changing symptoms can be experienced.

Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS) is a situation where people can react in small or large measures to small exposure to EMF radiation produced by sources like:
– Electrical wiring
– Mobile phone towers
– Wireless devices and cell phones
– Airport navigation systems
– Radar
– microwave ovens
– smart meters
– Wi-Fi
and much more.

Watch this episode’s content about electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) and read our review on our website.

Thank you BBC for having the back bone to put on something controversial. It will help those silently suffering to recognize their symptoms and seek help.

Un ‘teleco’ con electrosensibilidad logra la incapacidad para trabajar entre wifis


Un altro passo in avanti per i malati di Elettrosensibilità: dopo la Francia, anche in Spagna c’è stato un riconoscimento ufficiale della malattia, questa volta in un ingegnere delle telecomunicazioni.
Significativo è il fatto che gli sia stata riconosciuta una disabilità totale.

Ricordiamo che in Italia, e ancora di più nel Mondo, gli Elettrosensibili sono numerosi.
Alcuni di questi hanno una Elettrosensibilità talmente grave da costringerli a vivere in condizioni di totale isolamento per sfuggire all’onnipresente Inquinamento Elettromagnetico. La cosa, inevitabilmente, porta a tremende situazioni di disagio sociale (per l’impossibilità di frequentare i normali ambienti di vita) ed economico (per l’impossibilità di lavorare).
Poiché la malattia non è ufficialmente riconosciuta, questi malati non possono contare su alcun tipo di aiuto o tutela.
Abbandonati a loro stessi, privati dei diritti umani fondamentali e della dignità, trascorrono le giornate nella solitudine e nella sofferenza.

El TSJ de Madrid reconoce el derecho a una prestación que le negó el INSS

Un ‘teleco’ con electrosensibilidad logra la incapacidad para trabajar entre wifis
La electrosensibilidad se relaciona con los campos electromagnéticos y las conexiones inalambricás (Ulrich Baumgarten – Getty)

Un ingeniero de telecomunicaciones que trabajaba en Ericsson y sufre electrohipersensibilidad, un síndrome neurológico que se dispara al exponerse a ordenadores, wifis, teléfonos móviles y espacios en general con alta actividad eléctrica y electromagnética, ha logrado que el Tribunal Superior de Justicia de Madrid le reconozca que no puede seguir ejerciendo su profesión sin enfermar y tiene derecho por ello a una prestación por incapacidad. El Instituto Nacional de la Seguridad Social (INSS) se lo negó hace dos años amparándose en la dificultad para probar la existencia de ese síndrome.

“Es la primera incapacidad total que hemos conseguido debida exclusivamente a este síndrome”, explica el abogado Jaume Cortés, del Col·lectiu Ronda. El INSS consideraba que era imposible determinar las limitaciones funcionales derivadas de este síndrome de electrosensibilidad basándose en informes de la Organización Mundial de la Salud sobre “la heterogeneidad y vaguedad de sus síntomas”.

“Hablar por el móvil me provocaba acúfenos y dolor de cabeza en menos de un minuto. Pero además del oído enrojecido por el móvil, apenas conseguía dormir, me volví agresivo hasta llegar a provocar accidentes , estaba hundido y mi cerebro cada vez iba más lento. Llegué a olvidar el nombre de amigos de toda la vida. Todo junto aumentó la depresión, la ansiedad…”, explica Ricardo de Francisco, el ingeniero de telecomunicaciones de 47 años a quien todo lo inalámbrico le lleva a
un amplio y cada vez más diverso sufrimiento. Al principio pensó que era un problema de salud mental, pero los especialistas se lo descartaron. “Pero mi tiroides se normalizó en cuanto estuve un mes sin trabajar, y lo mismo pasaba con otras partes de mi cuerpo”.

En Ericsson –tras un periodo de bajas en las que no se reconocía este síndrome, “no existe, me decía mi doctora del servicio médico”– le acabaron despidiendo precisamente por electrosensibilidad. No había ningún sitio libre de ondas en la empresa ni tareas telemáticas que pudieran reducir el riesgo de la responsabilidad de la compañía en su salud.

Se fue al paro y reclamó la incapacidad: “¿Dónde puedo ir a trabajar que no haya un router?”. Primero se la denegaron y ahora la ha logrado por vía judicial. No puede trabajar. Ni puede usar trans­portes públicos, entre otras razones, porque la sensibilización va ampliándose a sustancias químicas. “Estudio pueblos a los que poder trasladarme, pero les ha dado por poner wifi en las calles”.

Vive en Madrid y por la calle busca antenas. En casa, teléfono fijo y un móvil GSM, con muchos menos megahercios que los móviles que hacen de todo. “No es fácil encontrar esa información. En las tiendas alucinan con la pregunta . Hay que buscar el índice SAR”. Su móvil usa una frecuencia menor y lleva apagadas todas las posibles conexiones inalámbricas. Lo utiliza con auriculares porque llegan menos ondas y es posible reducir aún más el efecto con unos alargadores que emiten al final con aire, “pero es difícil encontrarlos”.

En el caso del teleco madrileño, la clave de la sentencia favorable ha sido contar con un informe de la sanidad pública, en esta ocasión, el de un internista estudioso del tema del hospital de Guadalajara.“Es la historia de todas estas enfermedades, no existen hasta que los afectados reclaman y un juez las reconoce y se convierten en noticia”, explica el abogado del Col·lectiu Ronda. Pasó con la fibromialgia, con la fatiga crónica –“hoy ya tenemos unas 300 invalideces reconocidas por esta causa”–, con la sensibilidad química múltiple, “unas 50 ganadas”. Ahora le toca a la electrosensibilidad.

It’s not great, but you’ll get the gist of it.]


A ‘teleco’ electrosensitivity achieved with the inability to work between wifis

The TSJ of Madrid recognizes the right to a benefit denied the INSS

A telecommunications engineer who worked at Ericsson and sufferselectrohipersensibilidad, a neurological syndrome that is triggered when exposed to computers, wifis, mobile phones and spaces in general with high electrical and electromagnetic activity, has made the High Court of Madrid recognizes him which can not continue to exercise their profession without becoming ill and therefore is entitled to a disability benefit. The National Institute of Social Security (INSS) was denied two years ago citing the difficulty in proving the existence of this syndrome.

“This is the first we have achieved total disability due exclusively to this syndrome,” says attorney Jaume Cortés, the Col·lectiu Ronda. The INSS considered it impossible to determine the resulting functional limitations of this syndrome electrosensitivity based on reports from the World Health Organization on “the heterogeneity and vagueness of its symptoms.”

“Using a mobile phone caused me tinnitus and headache in less than a minute. But besides the ear flushed mobile, could barely sleep, I turned aggressive even cause accidents, was sunk and my brain was getting slower. I came to forget the name of lifelong friends. All together increased depression, anxiety … “explains Ricardo de Francisco, telecommunications engineer 47 who all wireless leads to
a large and increasingly diverse suffering. At first he thought it was a mental health problem, but experts dismissed it. “But my thyroid was normal as was a month without work, and so did other parts of my body.”

In Ericsson -after a period of declines in this syndrome is not recognized, “does not exist, my doctor told me the medical service” – ran out precisely by laying off electrosensitivity. There was no free site waves in the company or data communications tasks that could reduce the risk of liability of the company’s health.

He went to unemployment and the inability claimed: “Where I can go to work do not have a router?”. They first denied the application and now has achieved through the courts. It can not work. Nor can use public transportation, among other reasons, because awareness is expanding to chemicals. “Study people they can move, but has given them to put wifi in the streets.”

She lives in Madrid and down the street looking antennas. At home landline and a mobile GSM, with far fewer megahertz phones that do everything. “It’s not easy to find that information. In stores they hallucinate with the question. We must find the SAR “.Your phone uses a lower frequency and takes you off all possible wireless connections.Use with headphones because they reach less waves and may further reduce the effect with some extension cords that emit air at the end, “but it is hard to find.”

In the case of Madrid teleco, the key favorable judgment has been to have a report of public health, on this occasion, a scholar internist hospital theme of Guadalajara. “It is the history of all these diseases, not there until those affected claim and a judge recognizes and become news, “says attorney Col·lectiu Ronda. It happened with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue – “today we have about 300 disabilities recognized by this cause” – with multiple chemical sensitivity, “some 50 won”. Now it’s up to electrosensitivity.



An urgent message for all humanity: electromagnetic radiation is damaging our babies, brains, bodies and planet

by Olga Sheean

The following letter (sent to the Mayor of Vancouver, Gregor Robertson, and the Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, on 15 June 2016) has generated an overwhelming response from people all over the world. Many of them have electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS), but some of them are discovering this information for the first time and are alarmed by how much it has been distorted, downplayed and denied by those elected to protect our well-being. They have shared their own personal stories and some of them have also written to Robertson, as well as their own elected officials, expressing their concerns and calling for this issue to be urgently addressed.

The letter has gone viral, reaching thousands of people. It has been shared on social media, distributed on various networks, sent out in newsletters and its content re-purposed for other cities.

The information contained in this document applies to most developed countries, since Wi-Fi, cell phones and cordless phones are everywhere, saturating our environment with rapidly rising levels of radiation that’s affecting more and more people every day. I encourage you to share it as widely as you can, even if you are not personally (or knowingly) affected.

The more people I speak to about this, the more I (and they) realize that we’re all affected, in some way—some so severely that they can no longer function normally. I receive letters every day from those who are desperate for a solution and a safe place to live. I hear horror stories—a teenager committing suicide because she’s been forced to sit beside a Wi-Fi router at school, even though it makes her seriously ill; adults who have taken their own lives because there is nowhere for them to lead a normal life; and a 10-year-old boy who can no longer go to school as the Wi-Fi causes blinding headaches and makes him vomit. (For a list of symptoms of electromagnetic intolerance, see page 13.)

As much as 50% of the population in many developed countries will be affected by electromagnetic radiation by 2017.

The questions on pages 20 & 21 raise some key issues that politicians, decision-makers and Internet service-providers have an obligation to answer—but will be unable to, since the proliferation of electromagnetic radiation is now so vast and is escalating so rapidly that there is no way to measure, monitor or contain it.

As of 3 July 2016, I had not yet received a reply from Robertson or Trudeau, but I will be following up with them personally, sharing the many stories and messages I’ve received and alerting them to the growing public awareness of what’s really going on. Change will come as a result of your involvement. There is a tipping point for everything—your tolerance for the rising radiation, as well as the pressure we can collectively bring to bear on those tasked to protect our health, safety, human rights and natural environment.

We’re all in this together.



L’ANSES lance une consultation publique sur l’hypersensibilité

[Al via in Francia una consultazione pubblica sulla Elettrosensibilità, alla luce delle sempre più innegabili evidenze della reale esistenza della malattia e dei danni da Radiofrequenze/Microonde…]

28 luglio 2016 – “lequotidiendumedecin.fr”, par Damien Coulomb

L’Agence nationale de sécurité sanitaire de l’alimentation, de l’environnement et du travail (ANSES) invite à une consultation publique de son rapport prédéfinitif sur l’électrosensibilité intitulé « hypersensibilité électromagnétique ou intolérance environnementale idiopathique attribuée aux champs électromagnétiques ».

La sensibilité aux ondes électromagnétiques est un sujet qui revient régulièrement sur le métier des experts de l’ANSES qui avaient remis un premier rapport « Radiofréquence et santé » en octobre 2013, suivi d’un autre, plus récent, mettant en avant un possible effet des radiofréquences sur la cognition des enfants.

Suite à son rapport de 2013, dans lequel l’agence estimait que la littérature ne permettait pas de trancher clairement le débat de la nocivité supposée attribuée aux radiofréquences, l’ANSES a été saisie par des associations d’hypersensibles pour approfondir son travail sur la question du syndrome de l’hypersensibilité aux ondes électromagnétiques.

Le rapport prédéfinitif ne propose en l’état ni synthèse ni conclusions ou recommandations qui seront rédigées après la consultation publique. Les auteurs tentent cependant de classifier les différents troubles attribués aux ondes électromagnétiques, et notent qu’aucun test biologique n’est apparu comme pouvant entrer dans la constitution d’un ensemble de critères diagnostiques. D’un point de vue épidémiologique, le rapport estime à 5 % en moyenne la prévalence des personnes se déclarant hypersensibles aux champs électromagnétiques. Le rapport explore aussi les explications médicales des syndromes d’électrosensibilité.
