What is Electrosmog?

Electrosmog is the invisible electromagnetic radiation resulting from the use of both wireless technology and mains electricity. The most common sources of wireless electrosmog are:
  • Cordless phones
  • Cordless baby alarms
  • Mobile/cellular phone masts/towers/transmitters
  • Mobile/cellular phones
  • Wireless networks
Electrosmog is responsible for a condition known as electrosensitivity (ES) or electrohypersensitivity (EHS). Symptoms include:
  • Headaches
  • Disruptive sleep patterns
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Depression
  • Hypersensitivity and erratic blood pressure
  • Skin complaints
  • Behavioural patterns in children

Children, the elderly and anyone with a lowered immune system are most at risk from the health effects.

The health effects from electrosmog can take 10 – 20 years to manifest themselves, however for some, the effect can appear immediately

Research shows that between 3% and 5% of the general population could be ES sufferers. In Sweden, for example, 285, 000 people (over 3% of the population) are registered as ES and claim disability benefit from the government

In November 2005, the Health Protection Agency printed the ‘Definition, Epidemiology and Management of Electrical Sensitivity’ report, commissioned to identify and appraise the literature in order to describe and define ES

In Germany: More than 37,000 people including 1,000 medical professionals have signed the Freiburger Appeal, calling on the German Government to take action in the face of the rapidly growing health issues that they attribute to electrosmog

In the Netherlands: A Dutch scientific study, the TNO Report, set out to prove that electrosmog had no effect on human cell tissue. The results were completely the opposite - and came as a surprise to the scientists

In Austria: The city of Salzburg has declared a maximum emission level of 0.6 volts per metre – approximately 1% of UK reference levels
