Electromagnetic sensitivity (ES)
Electrosensitivity or hypersensitivity is believed by an increasing number of scientists to be to the greatest health threat facing the 21st century. The truly staggering increase in the levels of 'electrosmog' or electro magnetic radiation in which we all live is causing major and probably irreversible damage to cell function in all of us. Most worryingly, the damage is likely to be greatest in our children whose immature brains and immune systems are less able to cope with the electromagnetic assault.
For a very brief video introduction to electrosensitivity by Professor Olle Johasson of the Karolinka Institute in Sweden, one of the leading scientists working in this area, click here.
This area of the site includes a tiny fraction of the research material now available logging the increase in electrosmog and its likely health outcomes. We have tried to divide it into fairly manageable sections but there will, inevitably, be considerable overlap. We also include a number of suggestions as to how to minimise exposure and manage sensitivities if you are already sensitised and report on some of the very positive moves elsewhere in the world, especially in Europe, to reduce levels of electrosmog, which, sadly, are not, as yet at least, being implemented in the UK.
For a good general introduction to the subject, read John Scott's article Microwave technology: a 21st century Trojan horse.
