Electromagnetic pollution and electromagnetic stress. Dr Andrew Tressider asks whether we are at risk of suffering the fate of the Roman Empire which was destroyed by its own improved technology – lead pipes. Could the DNA damage caused by uncontrolled electromagnetic pollution do the same to the civilisation of the 21st century? 07/12

EHS sufferers living at the EHS refuge at Foussais-Payré in the Vendée in France went on hunger strike recently when the local telecoms company threatened to install phone masts near the refuge. (The hunger strike has now been called off as the telecoms company has agreed to talks.) In support of their cause, Professor Olle Johannson wrote this interesting letter outlining the position for those who are electrosensitive in Sweden where the condition is recognised as a 'functional impairment'.
