What is Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity

Electromagnetic hypersensitivity, or EHS, according to the World Health Organization, “comprises nervous system symptoms like headache, fatigue, stress, sleep disturbances, skin symptoms like prickling, burning sensations and rashes, pain and ache in muscles and many other health problems. Whatever its cause, EHS is a real and sometimes a disabling problem for the affected persons. Their EMF exposure is generally several orders of magnitude under the limits of internationally accepted standards” (International Workshop on EMF Hypersensitivity, WHO 2004).

“EHS is a real and sometimes a disabling problem for the affected persons”

Electromagnetic hypersensitivity is a condition whereupon artificial electromagnetic fields, or EMF’s, in the form of toxic non-ionizing radiation, which is comprised of WiFi, 4G, 5G, electromagnetic fields emitted by all electrical devices and wiring, and in particular dirty electricity, are all literally poisoning a high proportion of all life on this planet.

It is critical to recognise that this is radiation, and it has been known since the introduction of electricity supply and wireless communications nearly one hundred years ago that it is killing people.

Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity - Review of Mechanisms

One prominent study, ‘Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS, microwave syndrome) – Review of Mechanisms’, states that EHS, “known in the past as ‘Microwave syndrome’, is a clinical syndrome characterized by the presence of a wide spectrum of non-specific multiple organ symptoms, typically including central nervous system symptoms, that occur following the patient’s acute or chronic exposure to electromagnetic fields in the environment or in occupational settings.”

According to the review, “numerous studies have shown biological effects at the cellular level of electromagnetic fields (EMF) at magnetic (ELF) and radio-frequency (RF) frequencies in extremely low intensities. Repeated exposures result in sensitization and consequent enhancement of response. Many hypersensitive patients appear to have impaired detoxification systems that become overloaded by excessive oxidative stress.”

The review goes on to explain how “EMF can induce changes in calcium signalling cascades, significant activation of free radical processes and overproduction of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in living cells as well as altered neurological and cognitive functions and disruption of the blood-brain barrier. Magnetite crystals absorbed from combustion air pollution could have an important role in brain effects of EMF. Autonomic nervous system effects of EMF could also be expressed as symptoms in the cardiovascular system.”


Furthermore, “other common effects of EMF include effects on skin, microvasculature, immune and hematologic systems. It is concluded that the mechanisms underlying the symptoms of EHS are biologically plausible and that many organic physiologic responses occur following EMF exposure. Patients can have neurologic, neuro-hormonal and neuro-psychiatric symptoms following exposure to EMF as a consequence of neural damage and over-sensitized neural responses.” (https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32289567)

An Insidious Illness

Typically, EHS sufferers experience constant headaches, nausea, insomnia, confusion, irritability, anxiety, depression, body pains, sinus problems, impaired cognition and ‘brain-fog’. Brain-fog is a particularly awful experience when induced by EMF radiation exposure, which can be described as a dull yet prominent headache similar to a bad hangover combined with a flu-type headache.

Regulating Authorities Failure

Some people report an underlying feeling of being poisoned or contaminated, which is of course precisely what is occurring. As a result, many people are forced to, often drastically, move to a safer home and/or quit their jobs, and may be a contributing factor to homelessness.

This is truly an insidious illness, causing immense frustration, chronic poor health, and it is literally destroying families and friendships due to those ignorant of the overwhelming scientific evidence. Perniciously it cannot normally be seen, heard, smelt, tasted or touched. Marie Curie, the discoverer of ‘radioactivity’ and a multi Nobel prize winner, died from radiation poisoning in 1934 for these very reasons.

Horrifyingly, the only testing done by governmental regulating authorities such as the USA Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on 5G is to see if people experienced second degree burns within 15 minutes whilst standing near a 5G antenna. Second degree burning predictably was not recorded, however some test subjects did experience reddening of the skin.

As such, an astounding amount of people, including doctors, deny that EMF’s are harmful. Horrendously, the FCC has refused to amend non-ionizing radiation exposure standards since 1996. So called ‘internationally accepted standards’ are more than a quarter of a century out-of-date.

Health Authorities Misdiagnosis

An immense number of people are completely unaware that they even have this condition because many governments around the world still classify EHS as ‘idiopathic’, which is utterly unjustifiable considering the extensively documented and understood vast history of electromagnetic field radiation poisoning.

In other words, regulating authorities and, quite arrogantly, many doctors and psychologists believe that an increasingly significant proportion of the human race are quite literally stupid and emotionally disturbed. To make this catastrophic situation even worse, many ‘so-called’ prominent internet information sources also regard EHS and general ill-health caused by artificial EMF’s, with literally zero evidence and thus quite falsely, as being non-existent.

Everyone on the planet, and of all life, are now at great risk, even though the effects are not immediately felt by many. One study from 2011, ‘Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity: Evidence for a Novel Neurological Syndrome’, concludes that “EMF hypersensitivity can occur as a bona fide environmentally-induced neurological syndrome”, and that five percent of the population suffer EHS.

More recent assessments are indicating that 30 percent of the World’s population may soon develop EHS if the exposure standards are not amended.

Violating our Ethical and Legal Rights

Those suffering EHS experience the symptoms directly and intensely, which can be excessively debilitating. Health authorities who refuse to acknowledge not only the ever-expanding scientific research that explicitly states that this is harming us, are also illegally ignoring the expression of people’s concerns, who are made ill from forceful exposure to everyday dangerous levels of electromagnetic field radiation.

For a comprehensive list of the documented symptoms of harm and diseases caused by everyday man-made EMF exposure, and particularly the conditions intensely experienced by EHS sufferers, refer to our post ‘Documented Symptoms of Toxic EMF Exposure’.

At the detriment of human health, many government departments around the world are refusing to consider the scientific evidence. Other government bodies, including military, are refusing to disclose information on the harm that artificial electromagnetic field radiation is causing. One example is the USAF’s knowledge of whether Brillouin precursors will cause 5G radiation to penetrate into the body at a far greater depth than authorities claim. Refer to the article ‘Introducing Brillouin Precursors: Microwave Radiation Runs Deep’ by Scientists for Wired Technology.

There is the extremely serious issue of the legality of forcing all life on this planet to radiation exposure, especially with younger people being particularly susceptible. This is simply due to the fact that the young have thinner skulls, softer tissue and less volume to penetrate radiation into. The future for many countries will be an exponentially increased volume of radiation exposure as 4G will continue to be used simultaneously with 5G.

It is Extensively Documented

It was well documented in the 1990’s that 2G caused permanent brain damage to a significant number of US firefighters, as antennas were prominently placed on top of fire stations. Now we’re placing 5G antennas, masts, towers, transmitters and aerials around schools. Refer to our video recommendations.

The problem, however, is compounded exponentially again with 5G cell antennas located as close as 50 metres apart, often just metres from people’s homes and workplaces, and tens of thousands, and potentially soon hundreds of thousands, of 5G satellites entrapping the Earth. Each satellite antenna emits millions of watts of power at potentially hundreds of gigahertz.

As this is specifically microwave radiation, are we literally destroying the entire Earth, its atmosphere and all inhabitants? This is an unprecedented extensive amount of radiation forced upon our entire planet.

All of Earth’s Inhabitants are at Great Peril!

Thousands of peer-reviewed, conflict-free certified scientific studies prove that these highly toxic electromagnetic fields are rapidly generating great harm to all life. If this global disaster is not ameliorated soon then many species around the world will become extinct and most of the human race will suffer debilitating health and unjustifiable death.

As detailed in the 2015 scientific report, ‘Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity – An Increasing Challenge to the Medical Profession’, “Austria is the only country with written suggestion to guidelines on the diagnosis and treatment of EMF related health problems. Apart from this, EHS is not recognised as a specific diagnosis in the rest of the world, and no established treatment exists”. More countries are, however, slowly acknowledging the toxic effects of artificial EMF’s.

The Only Way Forward

At Switzerland’s Paracelsus Clinic, where they state explicitly that EMF’s cause disease, “cancer patients are now routinely educated in electromagnetic field remediation strategies and inspectors from the Geopathological Institute of Switzerland are sent to patients’ homes to assess electromagnetic field exposures”.

In 2011 the International Agency of Research on Cancer (IARC) classified RF EMF’s as a ‘Group 2B’ carcinogen, which is possibly carcinogenic to humans. However, an IARC advisory committee in 2019 recommended as a “high priority” that this should be amended to a ‘Group 1’ carcinogen, defining it as a “probable” cancer agent. Therefore, if this radiation is very likely to cause cancer, then it is quite probable that it is then a significant cause or contributor to all diseases.

And of global significance, the United States Court of Appeals in August of 2021, in the historic case of the Environmental Health Trust et al. versus the Federal Communications Commission, ruled in favour of the EHT, stating that the FCC’s 2019 decision to maintain its 1996 human exposure to wireless radiation safety limits were “arbitrary and capricious.”

The court additionally stated that the FCC ignored thousands of pages of scientific evidence that wireless radiation causes disease. The FCC must now explain its “complete failure to respond to comments concerning environmental harm caused by RF radiation”.

“More relevant diagnostic tests for EHS should be developed. Exposure limits should be lowered to safeguard against biologic effects of EMF. Spread of local and global wireless networks should be decreased, and safer wired networks should be used instead of wireless, to protect susceptible members of the public. Public places should be made accessible for electrohypersensitive individuals” (Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity – Review of Mechanisms: https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/32289567).

Big Telecommunications Greed

The regulating authorities are predominantly refusing to recognise electromagnetic hypersensitivity as the very serious and often chronic disease that is literally destroying millions of lives around the world. They will not even admit that toxic EMF’s are toxic.

The study ‘5G: Public Health and Environmental Implications’, amongst literally thousands of others, states “that the addition of this added high frequency 5G radiation to an already complex mix of lower frequencies, will contribute to a negative public health outcome from both physical and mental health perspectives”.

Scientific Evidence Ignored

And they are refusing doctors and official studies to, as recommended by thousands of scientists, formally reclassify EMF’s such as WiFi and 5G as a ‘Probable Carcinogen’. For them to do so they would then need to admit that EMF’s are now irradiating the entire globe and thus directly and severely harming all life.

As a side note, fibre-optics, which was the original preferred option, is exponentially far more efficient and secure, significantly more robust and exceedingly more cost effective than 5G antennas and satellites.

For further information please refer to our other blogs, and we also highly recommend reading Donna Fisher’s book ‘Light that Heals’. Knowledge is power. There are many scientific studies proving that we are all at great risk.

Our governments that are meant to protect society are failing, and we must all be vigilant in holding them to account.

The ‘Precautionary Principal’ must prevail!
