The European Union prioritises economics over health in the rollout of radiofrequency technologies

The fifth generation of radiofrequency communication, 5G, is currently being rolled out worldwide. Since September 2017, the EU 5G Appeal has been sent six times to the EU, requesting a moratorium on the rollout of 5G. This article reviews the 5G Appeal and the EU’s subsequent replies, including the extensive cover letter sent to the EU in September 2021, requesting stricter guidelines for exposures to radiofrequency radiation (RFR).

Smart Meters – Smarter Practices Document

Introduction Problems reported worldwide with Smart Meters and related technology may (without appropriate action) occur in future rollouts and could generate health, legal, security and infrastructure difficulties unless appropriate measures are taken.

The European Union assessments of radiofrequency radiation health risks – another hard nut to crack (Review)

In 2017 an article was published on the unwillingness of the WHO to acknowledge the health effects associated with the use of wireless phones. It was thus stated that the WHO is ‘A Hard Nut to Crack’. Since then, there has been no progress, and history seems to be repeating in that the European Union (EU) is following in the blind man’s footsteps created by the WHO.


Surrounded is an eye-opening film about the possible harmful effects of the electronic devices that surround us every day.  Sam Wieder shares how he went from chronically fatigued to newly rejuvenated by learning how to minimize his exposure to common sources of man-made radiation.

EHS – what the experts say, part 1

On 13 April some of the world’s leading experts, including scientists, MPs and lawyers, came together to share their knowledge about electromagnetic hypersensitivity. The workshop, entitled ‘Electromagnetic-Hyper-Sensitivity: The State of Science’, was hosted by the European Parliament and held in a wifi-free environment so sufferers could attend.


When people ask me if I regret having given up my cell phone, my answer is unequivocally “No”. I don’t miss texting on a phone. I don’t miss GPS. I don’t miss reading news that some news aggregator selected for me. I don’t miss QR codes for this, that and everything else. I do not regret ridding myself of having a cell phone and I would not go back to having one.

Electro sensitivity and How We Move Around the Planet

If you are electrosensitive, as I am, moving yourself around the planet becomes quite a challenging thing to do. Let’s look at some of the obstacles that we face when it comes to cars, public transport and even electric bicycles.

Why EHS is no Fairy Tale

A magical animated film about EMF induced disability. Maybe you have electrohypersensitivity (EHS)? Electromagnetic sensitivity is increasing. It's an EMF induced disability/intolerance. If you are electrohypersensitive, like the character in this film, you know it's...

Electrohypersensitivity: handicap often mistaken for a psychiatric disorder

Gagnon had entered the hospital emergency ward voluntarily to find out why he was suffering from acute head and leg pain. “My head felt like it was in a vise. It began when I was cooking tomatoes on all four kitchen rings”, the retired mechanic explained in an interview. When his symptoms began, he knew nothing about electromagnetic fields (EMFs) produced by wired and wireless electrical technologies. Reading and worrying about their possible health effects got him into more trouble.

Dr. Leszczynski reviews public health policies on EHS

This article reviews the current, very limited, evidence of EHS health policies. It is the first, so comprehensive collection of information about EHS health policies of different organizations and countries. Hence, it is hoped and expected to bring attention to the EHS health policy issue.

Eliminating Digital Discrimination For the EMS Disabled

There is a large and diverse community of individuals who significantly suffer from wireless radiation exposure from wireless base stations, cell phones and other telecommunications infrastructure and devices. This White Paper addresses the impact of digital discrimination on the EMS disabled.

EHS Canary in a Gold Mine Video

Canary in a Gold Mine is a moving, hour-long, personal story of how the actor Jonathan Mirin came to realise that his wife had become Electro Hyper Sensitive.

PHIRE Press Release: UK Victory to Protect EHS Child from School WIFI

Parents have now won a 5 year legal battle against 2 local authorities to have their child accommodated in school for EHS. They won in the Upper Tribunal, thus the ruling is also precedent setting. We believe this is the first case in the world where a government body is legally mandated to make low EMF educational provisions to accommodate a child with EHS.

World-first legal judgement on EHS

WiFi in schools causes problems for students. For the first time, a UK court has recognised this fact. In a precedent-setting decision, the Upper Tribunal of the Administrative Appeals Chamber (Sussex) determined that educators would need to accommodate a student who was intolerant of WiFi and other electromagnetic fields.

White Zones for Health Impaired Australians

ORSAA is requesting that policy and action that needs to be taken to address the needs of EHS people as a disadvantaged group, including the establishment of radiofrequency quiet zones, also commonly referred to as “White Zones” in Australia.

Creation of ARIEM (Association for Research at International Level on EHS and MCS)

We are pleased to announce the creation, of the A.R.I.E.M. Association with the main objective of developing knowledge on EHS and MCS through high level research involving the best teams engaged in this research in France, in collaboration with the best international teams. This Association is under the patronage of an international scientific council composed of high-level experts.


What has been missed until recently is the fact that the rate of increase in cell phone usage mirrors the growth in incidence of mental illness especially among the young. For example, the diagnosis of bipolar disorder among children and teens up to age 19 years has increased dramatically since the early 90’s.

Associations Between a Polymorphism in the Rat 5-HT1A Receptor Gene Promoter Region (rs198585630) and Cognitive Alterations Induced by Microwave Exposure

nervous system is a sensitive target of electromagnetic radiation (EMR). Chronic microwave exposure can induce cognitive deficits, and 5-HT system is involved in this effect. Genetic polymorphisms lead to individual differences. In this study, we evaluated whether the single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) rs198585630 of 5-HT1A receptor is associated with cognitive alterations in rats after microwave exposure with a frequency of 2.856 GHz and an average power density of 30 mW/cm2.

Locked down during COVID, Piti Theatre’s Jonathan Mirin turns the camera on his obsessions with environmental health, fatherhood and marriage. The upshot: a comedic 21st century love letter and eco-justice/safe tech adventure!

Is the WHO impaired by electro-smog?

demonstrates arrogance and incompetence. The potential harmful effects of radiation from mobile networks cannot be reduced by engineers to frequency and average intensity. To evaluate and mitigate EMR exposure’s impacts to health and wildlife, we need comprehensive scientific study with due diligence, humility and caution.

Initial Report on Electro-hypersensitivity in Aotearoa, New Zealand by STANZ

The fact that we have people in Aotearoa-New Zealand suffering from Electro-hypersensitivity (EHS) – an intolerance to non-ionising electro-magnetic frequencies at levels regulatory bodies deem safe is a key concern for STANZ. can’t do it on their own. They are a voice of caution advising safer practices in the use of wireless technologies using radio frequency radiation.

Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity

Professor Dominique Belpomme and team, writing in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences. state that they believe electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) is a real and verifiable condition and should be acknowledged as such.
