STANZ Wired Newsletter #7 – Summer 2022

January 7, 2022

Kia ora Koutou & Welcome

The focus of the STANZ summer 2022 newsletter is primarily focussed on providing an overview of some of the latest research on Electro-hypersensitivity (EHS). Recently, some research on EHS has drifted into the idea of nocebo being the cause of EHS, which has led to some government departments being quick to parrot this line. However, in our opinion the nocebo concept as an explanation for EHS does not stack up in the real world. The first article is by our own Anne Gastinger who has being doing research with EHS sensitive people in NZ and her report makes for very interesting reading.

The next article is by Dr Dariusz Leszczynski on his research into EHS. The opinion that there is no causality link between EHS and EMF is unproven according to Dr. Leszczynski. In his opinion, the support expressed for this idea of there being no link between EHS and EMF by the World Health Organization EMF Project, the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection, International Committee on Electromagnetic Safety and numerous governmental organizations, should be revised because the scientific research data is of insufficient quality to be used as a proof of the lack of causality. In his opinion research should focus on finding suitable biochemical and biophysical markers that could be used, in combination with single-individual-focused provocation studies, to determine the sources of the EHS symptoms.

Clearly this debate has a long way to go and the first section provides for some key insights into the topic of EHS.

The second section provides details on how to become a member of STANZ and how to link up with STANZ via social media. While the third section provides some interesting reading particularly on how 5G is being promoted as helping to save the environment when this is really just fake greenwashing. There is also a link to Arthur Firstenberg’s latest newsletter showing that over the past two years the number of EMF emitting satellites circling the earth has increased from 2,000 to 4,800, and a flood of new projects has brought the number of operating, approved, and proposed satellites for Low Earth Orbit to at least 441,449. 2022 will be another challenging year for civil society groups like STANZ with the governments traffic lights system of segregation and discouragement of people freely meeting severely hampering our ability to engage with society on the urgent need for safer EMR technology for all. However, the process of training for and utilising the Anritsu EMF meter is beginning with the appointment of a suitably qualified individual to manage its use. While progress may be slower than we would like we are making progress and hope you will join with us in the endeavour to make Aotearoa/New Zealand EMR safe for all.
