TEDx Talk: Wireless

Jeromy Johnson is Electro Hyper-sensitive (EHS).

He used to work in Silicon Valley in the United States and become very ill when Smart Meters were introduced where he lived. He then became sensitive to other sources of EMFs.

In February 2016 Jeromy gave this excellent presentation at at TEDx talk in Berkeley, California.

The solutions he puts forward are in line with what we recommend at Beneficial Environments.

Excessive exposure to Electromagnetic Field sources causes pain

This is a significant publication.

From http://anhinternational.org – Excessive exposure to Electromagnetic Field sources causes pain:

A study has recently been published that provides the first evidence of a link between radio signals and nerve pain in people with amputated limbs. The senior author of the study, Dr Mario Romero-Ortega, said, “Our study provides evidence, for the first time, that subjects exposed to cellphone towers at low, regular levels can actually perceive pain”. The rats involved in the study received a nerve injury to simulate an amputation before being exposed to EMF signals equivalent to standing near a phone mast around 40 meters away for 10 minutes once a week for eight weeks. After just four weeks this short exposure time was enough to cause 88% of the rats to show a definite pain response to the signal. This study adds to the very real concerns associated with an excessive exposure to Electromagnetic Field sources, including electro-hypersensitivity, which has now been recognised as a functional disorder.

Study: Anthropogenic Radio-Frequency Electromagnetic Fields Elicit Neuropathic Pain in an Amputation Model

ABSTRACT

Anecdotal and clinical reports have suggested that radio-frequency electromagnetic fields (RF EMFs) may serve as a trigger for neuropathic pain. However, these reports have been widely disregarded, as the epidemiological effects of electromagnetic fields have not been systematically proven, and are highly controversial. Here, we demonstrate that anthropogenic RF EMFs elicit post-neurotomy pain in a tibial neuroma transposition model. Behavioral assays indicate a persistent and significant pain response to RF EMFs when compared to SHAM surgery groups. Laser thermometry revealed a transient skin temperature increase during stimulation. Furthermore, immunofluorescence revealed an increased expression of temperature sensitive cation channels (TRPV4) in the neuroma bulb, suggesting that RF EMF-induced pain may be due to cytokine-mediated channel dysregulation and hypersensitization, leading to thermal allodynia. Additional behavioral assays were performed using an infrared heating lamp in place of the RF stimulus. While thermally-induced pain responses were observed, the response frequency and progression did not recapitulate the RF EMF effects. In vitro calcium imaging experiments demonstrated that our RF EMF stimulus is sufficient to directly contribute to the depolarization of dissociated sensory neurons. Furthermore, the perfusion of inflammatory cytokine TNF-α resulted in a significantly higher percentage of active sensory neurons during RF EMF stimulation. These results substantiate patient reports of RF EMF-pain, in the case of peripheral nerve injury, while confirming the public and scientific consensus that anthropogenic RF EMFs engender no adverse sensory effects in the general population.

INTRODUCTION

Anthropogenic electromagnetic fields (EMFs) have become a ubiquitous presence in modern life. A broad spectral band of EMF frequencies (50 Hz–5 GHz) are now passing around us and through us, and are generated by sources ranging from electricity transport to mobile communication devices. While we have all undoubtedly benefited from the wide-ranging applications of commercial electronics, there is a growing social and scientific concern that persistent exposure to radio- and microwave-frequency (RF/MWF) EMFs may engender unforeseen adverse health effects in vulnerable subsets of our population.

Over the past thirty years, there have been numerous reports published on the epidemiological, animal, and cellular-level effects of RF EMF exposure [13], with the majority of these studies being conducted in vitro and focused on evaluating the potential relationship between cell phone usage and the incidence of certain types of cancer [46]. Many conclusions drawn from this field of study remain highly controversial [7,8], but sufficient evidence regarding EMF-tissue interactions has resulted in the adoption of national and international standards for health and occupational EMF exposure. More recently, there have also been anecdotal, case, and clinical reports that magnetic and electromagnetic fields of various frequencies may serve as a trigger for neuropathic and post-amputation pain [911].

Electrohypersensitivity

In this video Guy Hudson, physicist and electosensitive talks about the many symptoms of electrohypersensitivity.

The major symptoms of electrohypersensitivity are tinnitus, headaches, cluster headaches, stomach disturbances, inguinal neuralgia, sleep problems, insomnia, tiredness, rashes, chronic fatigue syndrome, food and other allergies.

Notes on symptoms.

Accumulation: Cumulative exposure can produce symptoms, making symptoms from chronic exposure more difficult to recognize than from acute exposure.

Delay: Symptoms can be delayed after acute exposure for a few hours.

Diurnal State: Symptoms vary according to the diurnal state of a person’s body (which often declines during the day).

Duration: Individual symptoms can last for a short or long time.

Frequencies: The sufferer may react first to a single frequency or source but later to more.

Intensity: As the condition progresses the level of sensitivity can increase.

Ionizing Similarities: Studies indicate symptoms from exposure to EM (non-ionizing) radiation are similar to those from radioactive (ionizing) radiation.

Severe Reactions: Severe reactions include paralysis, convulsions, seizures, loss of consciousness and stroke, or they can exacerbate an existing medical condition.

At Beneficial Environments we have solutions to reduce your electromagnetic pollution which will alleviate and reduce the symptoms of electrohypersensitivity.

Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity

A very well researched book on EHS was published in 2013 called Electromagnetic Sensitivity and Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity – A Summary by Michael Bevington.

He writes

Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity is categorised as a multisymptomatic ‘el-allergy’ in the Nordic classification of 2000 (R.68.8). Its symptoms are ‘certainly real’ and it can be a ‘disabling condition’ (W.H.O., 2005). It was first recorded in the mid 20th Century as an occupational illness, but it has now spread into the general population through environmental exposure from increasing levels of electro-magnetic fields and radiation.

EMF, Electrosmog and Electrosensitivity

A 2015 Conference on EMF, Electrosmog and Electrosensitivity

Sunday 1st November 2015 9.30am – 4pm near Haywards Heath, Sussex

Conference Agenda and Speaker details

Following the success of the Get Wired conference of 2013, we are following up with a one day conference in
Bolney, West Sussex.  This will be an excellent opportunity to hear about the latest developments in EMF science and to meet others who are concerned with this issue.

The venue for Get Wired 2015 is the Rawson Hall in Bolney, West Sussex.

For delegates that are ES: The venue has been selected for its low electrosmog levels and further tailored to create a low electrosmog environment.

The facility benefits from a very low level of EMF pollution with no Wi-Fi or DECT cordless phones present.  We will be ensuring that any cell phones and other mobile equipment will be switchedoff during the event.  The nearest cell tower is 600 meters away and cannot be detected with an Acoustimeter. There is no wifi nor cordless phones. The lighting will be modified to reduce electrosmog. All mobile phones must be switched off.

The Audio-visual equipment will all be wired (no radio microphones) and kept to a minimum – we will have a laptop, a projector and 4 wired speakers connected to 2 wired microphones. There will be 2 video cameras recordign the event. We will reserve seating for delegates who wish to keep away from the electronics.

We hope to offer an ES recovery area for those who find travelling a problem.

To full address for the venue is:

Rawson Hall
The Street
Bolney,
W Sussex, RH17 5PF

Speaker line-up and lecture titles are available on the Conference website.

Seating for up to 200 people.

Lunch is at a modest extra cost and needs to be reserved when you book the conference tickets. It will be gluten, egg and dairy free.

Please book your lunch when buying a ticket.  Please select the “with lunch reserved” option. Price for lunch is £10.

EMF Hypersensitivity

EMF Hypersensitivity

These days we are completely surrounded by ever increasing electromagnetic fields which have been proven to have negative health effects. These EMF’s can lead to the many and varied symptoms of electrosensitivity.

Ex head of the World Health Organisation warns on mobile phone usage

Ex head of the World Health Organisation warns on mobile phone usage.

One of the world’s most respected people – a leader in sustainability, a peacemaker, 3 times prime minister of Norway – Gro Harlem Bruntland has hinted before that she experiences symptoms of electrosensitivity – but in a recent inetrview has clearly stated that she immediatley gets headaches if she puts a mobile phone to her head.

From the IEMFA, 20 August 2015:

Ex-WHO General-Director and Ex-Prime Minister of Norway: Wireless Technology Has Negative Health Effects. There Is No Doubt.

On Friday the 14th of August 2015, retired WHO General-Director and Prime Minister of Norway, Dr. Gro Harlem Brundtland, was interviewed by the Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten*.

One of the issues raised in the interview was her current thoughts on wireless radiation. Her statement was crystal clear.

Watch the relevant clip from the interview here, subtitled in English by Citizens’ Radiation Protection, Norway.

We are grateful to Gro, for her clear and honest response.

Electrosmog is real

Noel Edmonds on health risks of electrosmog in Huffington Post

Noel Edmonds is a TV celebrity in the UK. He has spoken his mind on something which is affecting the lives of an increasing number of us.

Electrosmog is real. It is the international name for electromagnetic pollution which is recognized by many authorities and governments around the world. The United Nations cancer committee the IARC categorises electrosmog as a class 2B carcinogen because of its proven links to cancer in animals. France has recently outlawed Wi-Fi in crèches and limited use primary schools because of the health risks. Over 200+ of professional scientists have recently written to Ban Ki-moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations to request that permitted electrosmog levels to be reduced significantly. The scientists want electrosmog classified the same as smoking.

Increasingly people are exhibiting symptoms of electrosensitivity such as headaches, palpitations, memory loss, fatigue, sleeplessness. Reducing radiation exposure levels often clears up the condition.
