BBC will have a segment about EHS

A hint to Everyone from email,

Tomorrow, Tuesday, September 13, BBC's World News America will have a
segment about electrosensitivity. This was filmed in Green Bank, West
Virginia. It will be aired on PBS stations, including KNME in Santa Fe
at 5:30 PM.

The National Radio Astronomy Observatory is located in Green Bank. To
protect the observatory from interference, a Radio Quiet Zone is
enforced in the area around Green Bank. Nobody within a 13,000 square
mile area around the observatory is allowed to put up any radio antennas
without consulting the observatory. This is the only legally protected
Radio Quiet Zone in the world.

A growing community of electrically sensitive people live in Green Bank.
BBC News became alerted to this issue as a result of the recent
scientific study by Dr. Andrew Marino.

'Wi-fi refugees' shelter in West Virginia mountains

There are five billion mobile phone subscriptions worldwide and advances in wireless technology make it increasingly difficult to escape the influence of mobile devices. But while most Americans seem to embrace continuous connectivity, some believe it's making them physically ill.

Diane Schou is unable to hold back the tears as she describes how she once lived in a shielded cage to protect her from the electromagnetic radiation caused by waves from wireless communication.

"It's a horrible thing to have to be a prisoner," she says. "You become a technological leper because you can't be around people.

"It's not that you would be contagious to them - it's what they're carrying that is harmful to you."

Ms Schou is one of an estimated 5% of Americans who believe they suffer from Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS), which they say is caused by exposure to electromagnetic fields typically created by mobile phones, wi-fi and other electronic equipment.

'Electro-oversensitive' man in mobile phone blackout threat

Source of information:

A Swedish man who sometimes wears a silver-coloured suit to protect himself from mobile phone mast radiation had demanded that local officials in Dalarna in central Sweden create a “radiation-free zone” to protect his health that may leave half the county without mobile phone coverage.

Despite a lack of scientific research into the health effects of the radiation emitted by mobile phone masts, Mora municipality in Dalarna County is about to create an area free of radiation following complaints filed by local resident Dan Bengtsson, 62.

”There may be a biological effect that we are unaware of. If we can play it safe it may open up for other authorities to do the same,” said municipal environment inspector Niklas Sjödin to daily Dagens Nyheter (DN).

Bengtsson, who lives outside of Mora, has long complained of headaches, back problems, and painful prickles in his heart.

He describes himself as "electro-oversensitive" and claims that his health has deteriorated since the mobile mast network was expanded in the area.

The silver suit he sometimes wears dampens the effect somewhat, but not completely, according to Bengtsson.

”It looks a little bit like a space suit,” Bengtsson told daily Aftonbladet.

))According to Bengtsson, his condition is making his wife suffer as well, as she is forced to be there for him all the time.

”If I have to do a bank errand or similar she has to go into the bank and fetch me all the things I need,” he told the paper.

The municipality environment office is hoping to meet Bengtsson half way, despite the possibility that creating a mobile phone “dead zone” could leave other residents without any reception for their mobile phones and television sets.

The authority is hoping to make an official demand that mobile phone operators, as well as the state run TV and Radio distributor Terracotta, must aim their masts a different direction.

The local authorities argue their right to make such a demand is
supported by Swedish environment law. ((
