Electro-sensitivity (hypersensitivity, EHS) links
CIRCUIT (Electrical Sensitivity Support Group) (Has a good bibliography)
WHO ‘factsheet’: ‘Electromagnetic fields and public health; Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity’. Note the advice on limiting exposure differs from the UK Health Protection Agency, in saying if the kitchen is too hot, stay there: just think cool.
Now available in English, the Swedish ‘Black on White: Voices and Witnesses about Electro-hypersensitivity’
Satori-5: part of the Global Campaign for Recognition of Multiple Chemical Sensitivity and related syndromes, including EHS. There is rather too much in common.
Indoor Environmental Quality: Electromagnetic Fields. National Institute of Building Sciences: building recommendations. Think about our unregulated Wi-Fi/DECT connected offices.
Electrical sensitivity: a growing global concern. How wireless technology may impact child development and central nervous system functioning.
The effect of extremely low-frequency electromagnetic fields on skin and thyroid amine- and peptide-containing cells in rats: An immunohistochemical and morphometrical study. Mast cells in the skin show that EHS is not a psychological response.
A bibliography from Olle Johansson, Sweden. Why are these papers ignored?
German/Russian report on electrosensitivity: Biological Effects of Electromagnetic Fields on Humans in the Frequency Range 0 to 3 GHz
From the Electrical Sensitivity Network, Arizona. Note the implication of serotonin
And another very personal account. Please do note: these accounts are by no means rare, and they are not being listened to.
Ever wondered why the symptoms of EHS are very similar to those of multiple chemical sensitivity or chronic fatigue syndrome? Some would have it that we should call them all idiopathic environmental intolerance, and thus labelled, assign them as psychiatric disorders.
If so, look through the references to Nitric Oxide under our neurological links. It could be there is a common result through disruption of the Nitric Oxide Synthase cycle. Now read this:
Great injustices have been done, diagnosing EHS as schizophrenia. It’s the witch’s ducking stool all over again: incriminated if you survive, innocent (possibly) if you’re killed in the process
Nonthermal microwave radiations affect the hypersensitive response of tobacco to tobacco mosaic virus. So the question is: are plants psychosomatically inclined as well, since this experiment was single, not double-blind?
