'Electromagnetic Fields Intolerance is a physical illness based on objective tests' – Professor Dominique Belpomme's conclusion based on the clinical observation of 450 patients over a 3 year period.

In a presentation to the Mobile Telephony, Wi-Fi, Wi-Max: Are there Health Risks? congress held in Rome in June, Professor Dominique Belpomme, Oncologist, Professor of the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire Necker-Enfants Malades, showed the results of a clinical observation on more than 450 patients enrolled from 2008 to 2011.

He and his team used a new technique, known as the Pulsed Eco-Doppler, to diagnose people reporting reactions to electromagnetic fields. The technique combines the eco-doppler with a computer to evaluate brain perfusion. The results show that people with Electromagnetic Fields Intolerance have a reduced perfusion in the brain, particularly in the left part of the limbic area of the brain, compared to the control group. This is a very particular area, because it is the "ancient" part of the brain that controls many body functions.

This is the first time that Electromagnetic Fields Intolerance has been able to be defined as a physical illness based on objective tests. Professor Belpomme's team also used a number of other tests (dosage of histamine, of protein S100B, and of heat shock proteins hsp70 and hsp27 in the blood) which showed significant differences in sufferers from Electromagnetic Fields Intolerance (Professor Belpomme's preferred term for what is generally known as Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity).

The team also found many similarities between physiological changes in EFI patients and those suffering from Multiple Chemical Sensitivity.
