Information on ES and EHS

It can be very difficult to find sympathy when you believe you may be suffering from Electrical Sensitivity. Many doctors are trained to believe it is a psychological condition, and as such information on what the symptoms are, what might trigger them and how they can be prevented can be hard to find.

The following articles are designed to give some insight into what could be causing the symptoms that you may be suffering, what other symptoms there are that you may not have related to the condition, and provide some simple clues as to lifestyle changes that can help deal with the modern impairment.

We have compiled a reasonably comprehensive list of products and services for those who are interested.

In Sweden, Electrohypersensitivity (EHS) is an officially fully recognized functional impairment (i.e., it is not regarded as a disease). Read Olle Johansson's excellent summary of how this impairment is currently viewed in Sweden. You can also listen to an excellent audio presentation of his discussing both ES and the science behind it.

Biological and Cancer Safety Limits for Electromagnetic radiation

Michael Bevington has compiled a document highlighting the frequency band, typical sources, and metrics of concern) of a variety of non-ionising electromagnetic radiation frequencies. Effects found and levels legislated against are available from heating and shock effects down to biological and cancer safety limits, including various findings of adverse human effects even lower than these.
