Electromagnetic sensitivity (ES)
Electrosensitivity or hypersensitivity is believed by an increasing number of scientists to be to the greatest health threat facing the 21st century. The truly staggering increase in the levels of 'electrosmog' or electro magnetic radiation in which we all live is causing major and probably irreversible damage to cell function in all of us. Most worryingly, the damage is likely to be greatest in our children whose immature brains and immune systems are less able to cope with the electromagnetic assault.
For a very brief video introduction to electrosensitivity by Professor Olle Johasson one of the leading scientists working in this area, click here.
This area of the site includes a tiny fraction of the research material now available logging the increase in electrosmog and its likely health outcomes. We have tried to divide it into fairly manageable sections but there will, inevitably, be considerable overlap. We also include a number of suggestions as to how to minimise exposure and manage sensitivities if you are already sensitised and report on some of the very positive moves elsewhere in the world, especially in Europe, to reduce levels of electrosmog, which, sadly, are not, as yet at least, being implemented in the UK.
For a regular updates on what is happening in the ES world, ES-UK publishes an excellent quarterly newsletter (on line and in print).
For a good visual introduction to the subject watch this video from Dr Erica Mallery Blythe.
An excellent, fully illustrated primer on electrosensitivity by US Electromagnetic Radiation Specialist, Lucy Sandford. What it is, what it does to the body, her own story, a history of ES, how to manage it and how to protect yourself and your family.

Peer reviewed scientific studies on EMF related subjects. An invaluable and regularly updated page on the Powerwatch site presenting a list of papers and odds ratios which either show serious effects or are considered important papers on the subject. Each paper is rated:
P – This study has found effects from the exposure or radiation category
California Department of Public Health (CDPH) issues cell phone warning document. highlighting the health risks from cell phone radiation and providing tips on how to reduce exposure. The document was originally prepared in 2009 and has only now finally seen the light of day thanks to a long battle through the courts by ES campaigner, Dr Joel Moskowitz. A similar document was issued by the Connecticut Department of Health in 2015. December 2017.
Cell phones - how they work and what radiation they emit. A fascinating, heavily referenced and alarming, article by EMR activist and author, Arthur Firstenberg. December 2017
Higher rates of miscarriage amongst women exposed to non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation from wifi, mobile phones etc – 24.2% of the 913 women in the study with higher levels of exposure suffered miscarriage. The rate of miscarriage in the general population is 10–15%.
