Electro-sensitivity (ES) or Electromagnetic-Hypersensitivity (EHS) is a physical intolerance which can develop from exposure to wireless radiation, which covers things like mobile phones, WiFi, mobile phone masts, computers, cordless phones, smart meters- in fact anything that calls itself “smart” – low energy lighting, powerlines and substations.
Electrosensitivity was first described in medical literature in 1932. It is now recognised legally as a disability in many countries (but not yet in the UK). As the network of masts and everything WiFi and “smart” has exploded, so has the number of people affected.
Common symptoms include: headaches, skin problems, interrupted sleep, lethargy, depression, memory loss, muscle pains, cardiac palpitations, irritability and some cancers.
Treatment: there is no magical cure except to avoid wireless radiation. Indeed, many people find that their symptoms lessen dramatically – especially at the start – when they are in areas that are free from wireless radiation. There are a number of products on the market which claim to shield users in various ways.
In this section you will find a growing number of articles and links to help you if you are affected personally or know someone who feels they may be. Or perhaps just to put some information in front of someone who does not believe that “just a mobile phone” can potentially cause so much damage to their health!
It is important to do your own research – these two organisations would be excellent starting points:
Electrosensitivity UK – a charity that aims to help all people sensitive to Electromagnetic Fields and Radiation.

EM – Radiation Research Trust an independent association of medical doctors and associated specialists assembled for the purposes of improving education regarding health effects of non-ionising radiation.
