After three years of living in a building that housed a wireless
Internet mast (antenna), Dr Carlos Sosa developed severe electromagnetic sensitivity. No longer able to study or work, and with extreme fatigue and pain, he searched his city of Medellin for a safe haven for his family.
He found none – because there are 4000 masts in the city. Dr Sosa finally
got some answers and help from renowned environmental physician William Rea, MD, of Dallas, Texas.
Dr Sosa's exposure was extreme, and the extent of his hyper-sensitivity is rare. But we all need to ask ourselves what damage daily,
low levels of exposures may be doing to us, and what we can do about them.
My name is Dr. Carlos Sosa, M.D. (physician and surgeon) and I'm presently living in Medellin, Colombia in South America. During the month of May 2006, I was forced to leave my house because of symptoms caused to me and my family by the microwaves of a wireless internet (WiFi) mast (or antenna). The structure had been in our building for nearly three years, and the company that owned it had been slowly raising the transmission frequency.
In May I started feeling a terrible sense of unwellness: headaches, dizziness, insomnia, nausea, irritability, amnesia or forgetfulness, and lack of attention or concentration capacity. I couldn't bear being close to my house or to any other microwave mast – be it cell phone or WiFi antennas. I had to leave my house together with my whole family, only to find that the city was flooded by some 4000 masts; there wasn’t a single un-irradiated spot for us to live in.
I could sense the electromagnetic fields that were being given off by these antennas when they were blocks away, before I could even see them. Many times I felt the sensation of a burning candle in the back part of my head (occipital area). We had to move to five different apartments all over the city because the situation was the same no matter where we went. I couldn't find physical or mental peace anywhere in the city.
I couldn't study which, being a medical doctor, is a tragedy. Studying is my life but I wasn't able to remember or concentrate. I had to resign my position at the hospital where I worked because there were microwave cell phone masts around the hospital. I could not bear being inside the Emergency Service because the electromagnetic contamination was too high, and I felt pain just trying to find a place to park the car there. I used to go there every day.
Despite the fact that I tried to get help from local health authorities and the National Ministry of Communications of Colombia, nobody actually helped me. I sent my written reports with medical evidence to our city Health Secretary; he probably laughed.
A few months later I learned of Dr William Rea who runs the Environmental Health Clinic in Dallas, Texas. (www.ehcd.com) I left immediately in search of his help. I already knew I had Microwave Syndrome. The alterations in my physiology were serious enough that I was willing to seek help anywhere in the world.
In Colombia, not a single medical doctor is trained in any of the universities to treat this problem. It's simply not taught in pre-graduate or graduate medical programs and schools around the country. Plus, being a medical doctor, I know of the ignorance and dogmatism of the medical profession.
I have now collected some 2000 medical publications on this topic, written by doctors from all over the world. In Dallas I was able to meet people from the five continents with exactly my same story: they had been subject to microwave radiation from a mast that was up to four blocks away.
At the time I did not think it possible to survive – my neurological functions were deeply affected. My best option at that point in time seemed to be committing suicide and I thought about it every hour of every day.
Dr Rea made the diagnosis of a toxic encephalopathy, immune dysregulation and dysautonomy. All of these diagnoses were considered a direct consequence of microwave irradiation. It had been many years since I had cried. I stayed in the clinic's rest room for half an hour, trying to erase the traces of the tears and my red eyes. I knew how serious the situation was. Basically my life, my profession, and my neurological integrity was at stake.
Dr Rea taught me a lot and I will be eternally grateful to him. Though he wanted me to stay for two or three months, my economic situation did not allow for it. The very first day I had to spend almost all of my money in lab examinations. The medical results at the clinic ran the gamut of possibilities from no response, partial recovery, functional symptoms, to total cure.
I returned to Colombia in search of a place to hide from microwaves in the jungle. I visited tens of towns and states around the country. The nation is totally contaminated with electromagnetic smog. And, Colombia is far better than any city in the US or Europe.
I finally managed to find a spot by the Andes Mountains. It was a beautiful place with a creek, a forest, a 200-year-old house with no electricity, and pure air. Though I could sense electromagnetic fields – probably coming from radar units, there was a big reduction in the symptoms that allowed me to start recovering. After staying there for five months, I had to return to the city because I was starting to feel the microwaves from airplanes crossing in the sky. Unfortunately, there was an international air navigation route in the sky above us.
My case, just like the case of other medical doctors who are or have been electro-sensitive, is just another modern version of infamy. Among these is the case of the former director of the WHO and Norwegian prime minister Gro Harlem Brundtland. She had for-
bidden journalists from using cell phones in her office
because of her EHS (electro-hypersensitivity). The news was made public in Norway and Sweden. A few months later, she had to abandon
the leadership of the WHO.
Many blame the mobile phone industry as authors
of this tragedy. There is no doubt: the Microwave Syndrome is not only the biggest experiment in the history of mankind, but also, it is one
of the biggest epidemics recorded in medicine.
The Health Department
of the State of California estimates that over one million people in the United States
are affected by EHS or the
In not a single medicine book or journal in the world,
be it on genetics, physiology, histology, molecular biology, biochemistry, microbiology, internal medicine, pediatrics, neurology, or any other text,
does it state that the human cell was designed to withstand microwave radiation day and night throughout the years. This [resilience] is a creation, an invention or a lie from the cell phone industry.
This industry was set up by engineers, physicists, electricians and many times, by people who had no credentials and no knowledge of medicine whatsoever. That's the reason why many of us are ill or
The Microwave Syndrome, as it was originally described by Soviet medical investigators, consists of:
A neurasthenic syndrome:
fatigue, irritability, nausea, headaches, anorexia, depression, dizziness
A cardiovascular syndrome:
bradycardia, tachycardia, hypertension or low blood pressure
A diencephalic syndrome:
memory problems, concentration difficulties, insomnia
Chronic exposure to microwaves is associated with dermatological lesions, leukemia, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (epidemic), brain tumors, changes in the electroencephalogram, cardiac arrhythmias, reproduction problems, allergies, hypothyroidism, sinusitis, chronic fatigue syndrome, etc.
