Electrosensitivity & Electrohypersensitivity Studies

If anyone is wondering if there is scientific evidence of the health effects of electromagnetic fields please download and read this paper (Electrosensitivity UK, March 2018) on Electrosensitivity & Electrohypersensitivity Studies.

It is also useful to send to anyone who questions the link between electromagnetism and the health of biological systems. It is a very useful reference of 2,000 Electrosensitivity & Electrohypersensitivity Studies.

This film about people in the US with electrosensitivity and how it affects their lives. It is a good introduction for those who have not yet understood or seen the severe human cost of the problem to those affected by electrosmog and treats the electrosensitivity sufferers with respect and dignity.

However, the solutions shown in this film are not anywhere near as effective as used by others. This means that individuals with Electrosensitivity can have more expectation that they will get better as there are more and more documented cases of people getting their lives back together and better techniques for electromog reduction and also improved modalities for improving the body’s response to the pollution.

Consultancies like Beneficial Environments to create low electrosmog environments to allow electrosensitive clients to live in cities and countryside with minimum inconvenience and so that their most important environments, where they spend significant times are well below their sensitivity trigger levels and so that they can heal and reduce their symptoms and get a fuller life back. Guy Hudson the CEO of Beneficial Environments has reduced his sensitivity and now leads a very full life helping others.

Just one example from the film: shielding a room right round with reflective shielding causes mutliple internal reflections which affect electrosensitive people, also connecting the shielding and earthing it in a band around the room cause an induction loop for mains frequencies. So with a bit of extra knowledge people’s electrosmog levels may be reduced greatly. (The solution in this case:- use non-reflecting shielding and design out induction loops)

The Precautionary Principle and the BioInitiative Report

The Precautionary Principle and the Bioinitiative Report.

By the early 1970s, the great forests of West Germany were dying. The Germans suspected the cause was industrial pollution that resulted from the tremendous post-Word War II economic growth. Eventually research studies would reveal the link between industrial pollution, acid rain, and deforestation. But in the face of potentially irreversible damage to an irreplaceable national treasure, the Germans decided to act before they had definitive proof by passing the groundbreaking Clean Air Act of 1974 to limit industrial emissions. In doing so, the Germans adopted a new approach to countering environmental risks. The subsequent decades have seen Vorsorgeprinzip (literally, the “precautionary principle”) become an underlying principle of German environmental legislation.

The Precautionary Principle instructs us that in the face of serious threats, a lack of scientific certainty never justifies inaction.

The BioInitiative Report (BIR) has its origins among members of the BioElectroMagnetics Society (BEMS), on which Martin Blank served as president in 2007. A year earlier a mini-symposium took place in 2006 with members of BEMS and from the scheduled talks and discussions, the key learnings were:

  • Safety standards built around protecting humans from thermal effects of EMF radiation completely fail to consider the many fundamental biological processes, well documented to be affected by EMF at nonthermal levels.
  • The energy thresholds for biological damage are very low, and so the thresholds for potentially negative health effects are probably also very low.
  • Simultaneous exposure to different frequency ranges could have additive effects on the exposed humans; similarly, effects of cumulative exposures must also be considered.

The spark set off at the symposium led the participants to form the BioInitiative Working Group that eventually organized the BioInitiative Report (BIR). The BIR (you can download it from here) reviewed a wide collection of scientific evidence obtained in connection with studies on RF/MW exposure (which are rapidly increasing). but also included studies of power-line ELF.

The Precautionary Principle and the BioInitiative Report is a proactive policy to protect citizens from potentially adverse environmental influences when information about the risks they present is incomplete.

The BIR was updated in 2012, and the Precautionary Principle still applies, although it is important to remember that the application of the Precautionary Principle is designed as an interim step – a stopgap measure. The risks of continued inaction are simply too great.

While many of continue to push for improved regulatory scrutiny of EMF emissions, you should not wait for such action.

There are steps you can and should take as an individual to minimize your exposure to potentially harmful EMF radiation, without going back to the stone age.

Adapted from “Overpowered” by Martin Blank PhD, chapter 11, The Precautionary Principle and the BioInitiative Report.

At Beneficial Environments we sell products that minimize such exposure.

We can perform an EMF survey of your home, office or clinic.

We also have a free ebook on how to take simple steps to reduce electromagnetic pollution, download it from here.

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.
