No causal link between electro-hypersensitivity, RF exposure

Sunday 2 March 2014 | 21:36 CET | News
France's scientific committee for emerging and new health risks, SCENIHR, has published a preliminary update of its opinion on the potential risks of exposure to electromagnetic fields. The provisional document, which is open for public consultation until 16 April, informs SCENIHR's upcoming opinion based on scientific evidence since the previous one was produced in 2009. The body indicates that "based on the most recent cohort and incidence time trend studies, it appears that the evidence for glioma became weaker while the possibility of an association with acoustic neuroma remains open."

Please, millions of people are proof of this. Think of exposure to the slightly higher in frequency EMR from sunlight. No two people have the same sensitivity. More prolonged and more intense exposure leads to more severe health damaging effects. Some of these effects only become apparent after the exposure is over. Recovery requires complete avoidance of exposure until the body has healed. It really is common sense. All life is electrosensitive.
