There’s at least one section of our community not joining in the frantic clamour for high-speed broadband at present. It’s not that they don’t want the economy to grow and public services to benefit from faster internet connections.
It’s just that the cost to their health of all this rapidly-proliferating telecommunications and electrical technology is already too great a price to pay.
Although not yet a medically-recognised condition, an estimated one per cent of the population believe they suffer from Electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS or ES).
Stinging eyes, all-encompassing fatigue and debilitating sensations clouding the head are among the most common symptoms reported by self-professed EHS sufferers.
And their symptoms are getting worse. At nearly 80, Rathmore woman Delia O’Brien has witnessed her fair share of technological progress, but only in recent decades has her health started to suffer at an increasing rate. Read more…
This article was published earlier this year in The Bent, which is the magazine for the National Engineering Honor Society. The organization has a membership of 87,000 engineers across the country and the overall response was quite positive. The article succinctly summarizes how EMF science now shows that wireless technology can harm our health and I point toward solutions for our society.
I began to question the trajectory of our culture five years ago when a bank of wireless smart meters was installed below my bedroom in San Francisco. Within a week, my wife and I were experiencing headaches, insomnia, tinnitus, heart palpitations and fatigue. Read more…
You should definitely listen to Camilla Rees, of Electromagnetic Health, interviewing Vicki Warren, the past executive director of the Institute for Bau Biology & Ecology. You’ll learn how to lower your risk of EMF exposure around your house.
Warren discusses residual magnetism, static build-up, power charges (the field emitted by the wiring in your walls), power frequency magnetic fields, wireless communication electrosmog, and radioactivity and its by-product radon. She reveals how she examines a house for EMF dangers, and what you should avoid.
You’re guaranteed to learn some things you didn’t know, and improve your health, your sleep, and your life. Read more…
A MEATH couple believe that the cancers they have been diagnosed with were brought on by living beneath a high-power voltage power line for over three decades.
Paula and Mike Sheridan have said there is no health monitoring for people living close to pylons, but there will be for Whooper swans.
The Sheridans gave a powerful and moving submission to the An Bord Pleanála oral hearing last March, where they claimed to have developed cancers from the atmosphere they were living in.
