The link between ES and pesticide poisining

An interesting article written by Lucinda Grant, an early campaigner for ES who ran the Electrical Sensitivity Network between 1995 and 2000, highlights the similarities between the symptoms and possible mechanisms of electro sensitivity and organophosphate poisoning:

'..heh fact that radiation exposure at non-thermal, non-ionizing doses can produce the same effect as chemical poisons such as organophosphate pesticides provides sound evidence for a radiation poisoning effect. It may also explain why some MCS patients become ES too, and why some ES patients also become MCS. The agents are different (chemical versus physical) but the effects is the same – inhibiting cholinesterase.'
