EHS Recognition in the world

Does your headache all day long?
Do you feel pain inside your head after using your cellphone, mobile-phone, smart-phone or cordless phone?
Do you have one or a few of these symptoms?
Do you feel tired after using your wireless PC (desktop or laptop)?

Then you might be an Electromagnetic HyperSensitive (EHS for short) person!
Please read on!!!

World recognition in EHS

The recognition in EHS is slowly going forward in two paralleled axis. The first axis of recognition is done by international and national bodies, agencies and research institutes, that acknowledgment that EHS is an effect of a sick environment over a person's life. The second axis is bone buy courts around the world that rule in several cases of EHS people that acknowledge the disability of these people as EHS, a disability that is caused because of the exposure to EMF radiation. This is in contrast to the semi-recognition of other bodies, like the EMF project group in the WHO of 2005, that acknowledge the suffering of EHS people with out acknowledging that it is caused from exposure to EMF.

Pain and suffering not caused by EMF - WHO 

In 2005 the WHO concluded that the symptoms of EHS are real but found no evidence that they are cause by EMF exposure. In 2011, after it classified Radiofrequency electromagnetic fields as possibly carcinogenic in humans, the WHO started to evaluate EHS as a formal known health condition. This process is due to end at 2015.

Following this partial acknowledgment of the WHO, EHS is partiality recognized by the medical and scientific communities, however currently there is no consensus regarding the causes of EHS. 

Most medical doctors will try to minimize the symptoms of EHS by  issuing pain killers to their patients

Acknowledgement in Nordic countries

EHS or "Electromagnetic Intolerance" or "EI-allergy was acknowledged in 2000 as a cause of disability by the Nordic (Norway, Finland, Sweden and Denmark) council of ministers:

Parliament of Europe - 2009

In 2009 the Parliament of Europe declared the following:

"28. Calls on Member States to follow the example of Sweden and to recognize persons that suffer from electrohypersensitivity as being disabled so as to grant them adequate protection as well as equal opportunities "


Parliamentary Assembly Council of Europe - EHS is real!

In 2011 the Parliamentary Assembly Council of Europe adopted a report by the European committee for the safety of non ionizing radiation about "The potential dangers of electromagnetic fields and their effect on the environment". In section  8.1.4.  the council acknowledge Electromagnetic hyperSensitivity:

"8.1.4. pay particular attention to “electrosensitive” persons suffering from a syndrome of intolerance to electromagnetic fields and introduce special measures to protect them, including the creation of wave-free areas not covered by the wireless network;"

In section 4-22 the council of Europe ref to a study, that is not yet published (led by  Professor Belpomme, see below), that prove the EHS is "real":

"4-22 - "Finally, another expert specialising in clinical medicine and oncology confirmed, on the basis of the findings of biological and clinical analysis of several hundred French patients describing themselves as "electrosensitive", that a syndrome of intolerance to electromagnetic fields (SIEMF) does exist and that those people are not feigning illness or suffering from psychiatric disorder"

Written in 2002 by a group of German doctors this appeal describes patients with radiation sickness related symptoms that don't react to pills and pain killers. "Since the living environment and lifestyles of our patients are familiar to us, we can see, especially after carefully-directed inquiry, a clear temporal and spatial correlation between the appearance of disease and exposure to pulsed high -frequency microwave radiation (HFMR)"
