The Electronic Sickening of America
There are literally thousands of published, peer-reviewed studies showing the harm caused by electromagnetic radiation. The wide range of documented symptoms range from sleeplessness to autism to cancer.
Scientists estimate we are exposed to more than 100 million times the level of EMFs than our grandparents did.
According to the EPA, our indoor environment is two to five times more toxic than our outdoor environment, and in some cases, the air measurements indoors have been found to be 100 times more polluted!
From The Bioinitiative Report 2012 (just one of many below):
EMF AND EMR MAKE CHEMICAL TOXINS MORE HARMFUL
EMF acts on the body like other environmental toxins do (heavy metals, organic chemicals and pesticides). Both toxic chemicals and EMF may generate free radicals, produce stress proteins and cause indirect damage to DNA. Where there is combined exposure the damages may add or even synergistically interact, and result in worse damage to genes.
It is cause for concern. It's hard to believe when you see everyone around you using these devices with no worry. When it's invisible, it's easy to forget you're enveloped in a toxic soup...
Today, more and more people are experiencing adverse health effects as a result of ongoing exposure to Electric and Magnetic Fields (EMF). It is estimated that 3-8% of populations in developed countries experience serious electro-hypersensitivity symptoms and 35% to 50% experience less severe symptoms.
It is especially important to reduce the exposure where children are living. They are the first generation in the history of humanity to be exposed to this level of radiation starting at the womb and through the rest of their lives.
EHS can be difficult to understand and even more difficult to diagnose. Many doctors and other health professionals in North America are not yet aware of the recent scientific evidence surrounding man-made EMFs and their detrimental effects on human health.
Studies have shown that electrical pollution affects children more than adults and women are at least twice as susceptible as men. The huge increase in electromagnetic energy in today's modern electronic-charged environment coincides with an alarming increase in new-age ailments such as insomnia, chronic fatigue syndrome, chronic pain, tinnitus, anxiety, depression, nervous system disorders, ALS, Parkinson’s disease, hormone dysfunction, Alzheimer’s disease and with the huge spike in childhood cancers.
EMFs have been linked to many serious diseases including brain and salivary gland tumors, Parkinson’s disease and has been shown to exacerbate a number of chronic illnesses including, diabetes, allergies, tinnitus as well as Multiple Sclerosis and other diseases.
Some of the symptoms of EHS are:
= A warm or burning sensation in the face like feeling sunburned
= A tingling or prickling sensation across the face or other parts of the body
= Extreme dryness of mucus membranes such as the back of the throat and eyes
= A swelling of the mucus membranes such as nose, throat, ears and sinuses without any infectious cause
= Problems with concentration, loss of memory and dizziness
= A feeling of impending influenza (flu) that somehow never quite breaks out
= Headaches and nausea
= Teeth and jaw pains
= Aches and pains in muscles and joints
= Cardiac palpitations
