Electrosensitivity (ES)

Electrosensitivity (ES) is a descriptive term for symptoms caused by exposure to electromagnetic radiation (EMR). Other names for ES are: Electrohypersensitivity (EHS), Electromagnetic Sensitivity (EMS), Electromagnetic hypersensitivity and EMF syndrome.

Physical symptoms of ES can range from mild effects such as headache, nausea, tingling, skin reactions, anxiety, and tinnitus (buzzing/ringing in the ears) to painful and severe effects such as neurological conditions; cardiovascular, hormonal, and bloodsugar irregularities; seizures; paralysis; and stroke. For many people, sleep disruption is a symptom of ES and reduced quantity or quality of sleep contributes to further physiological and other problems. Behaviour, concentration and memory can also be affected.

The Canadian Federal government does not officially recognize ES, nor does any Provincial government. Below are links to organizations that recognize ES.

Canadian Human Rights Commission and Environmental Sensitivities

Current. According to the Canadian Human Rights Commission "Approximately 3% of Canadians have been diagnosed with environmental sensitivities, and many more are somewhat sensitive to traces of chemicals and/or electromagnetic phenomena in the environment....This condition may be initiated by one or a combination of environmental factors such as mould, pesticides, solvents, chemicals off-gassing from carpets or furnishings, or electromagnetic phenomena."

Austrian Medical Association guidelines for diagnosing and treating patients with EMF Syndrome

The Austrian Medical Association has developed a guideline for differential diagnosis and potential treatment of unspecific stress-related health problems associated with electrosmog. Its core element is a patient questionnaire consisting of a general assessment of stress symptoms and a specific assessment of electrosmog exposure. The guideline is intended as an aid in diagnosing and treating EMF-related health problems.

Electrohypersensitivity: State-of-the-Art of a Functional Impairment

In Sweden, electrohypersensitivity (EHS) is an officially fully recognized functional impairment (i.e., it is not regarded as a disease). Survey studies show that somewhere between 230,000–290,000 Swedish men and women report a variety of symptoms when being in contact with electromagnetic field (EMF) sources.

Where Can We Live?

Teaser for the documentary "Where Can We Live?" -about being electrohypersensitive by Helene Aastrup Samuels, Eira Film. During three years we followed two young women afflicted by EHS.They both have families with young children. Lisa has left town and her economy studies and concentrates on getting stronger and healthier. Linn is a computer engineer and she eventually moves away from the capital to a new job and a new kind of life in the countryside.

Long-Term Exposure To Microwave Radiation Provokes Cancer Growth

Long-Term Exposure To Microwave Radiation Provokes Cancer Growth
In this review we discuss alarming epidemiological and experimental data on possible carcinogenic effects of long term exposure to low intensity microwave (MW) radiation. Recently, a number of reports revealed that under certain conditions the irradiation by low intensity MW can substantially induce cancer progression in humans and in animal models. The carcinogenic effect of MW irradiation is typically manifested after long term (up to 10 years and more) exposure. Nevertheless, even a year of operation of a powerful base transmitting station for mobile communication reportedly resulted in a dramatic increase of cancer incidence among population living nearby.
