Do you suffer with unexplained symptoms such as headaches, sleep problems and dizziness following exposure to electromagnetic fields? You could be suffering from this condition.
These people find it difficult to leave the house due to an increasing number of Wi-Fi hotspots in urban areas, as well as pylons and an abundance of mobile phones in almost all public areas. Most working environments are driven by technology; it is virtually impossible to find employment that does not involve the use of a computer, a phone or electrical equipment of some kind.
The radio frequency radiation levels in some schools are up to three times the level found in the main beam of intensity from mobile phone masts. There have been no studies on the health effects of Wi-Fi equipment, but thousands on mobile phones and masts, which have provoked mass protests from worried parents.
They are thousands of times higher than in countries such as Switzerland, Italy, China and Russia.
Children's skulls are thinner and are still forming so their heads absorb more radiation that adults. With technology rapidly becoming more significant in the lives of young people, it is thought that ES will be a common condition among this generation in the near future.
In Sweden, ES is officially regarded as a physical impairment. More than 200,000 people in the country are recognized as being Electrosensitive in some form. The government has built a technology-free village for sufferers and provides support and pays for essential conversions to sufferers' homes to protect against radiation.
In the first update to the UK Mobile Phones and Health leaflet since 2005, health officials said that further research is needed into the long-term effects of using mobile phones. It stated: 'As people have only been using mobile phones for relatively few years, the HPA advises that more research be carried out, especially to investigate whether there might be longer term effects.' The UK Chief Medical Officer restated previous advice that children under the age of 16 should only use mobile phones for essential purposes, keep calls short and should try to text rather than call or use hands-free kits whenever possible.
