EMG - History of This Illness
The term “radio wave sickness” was first used by Russian doctors to describe an occupational illness developed by large numbers of workers exposed to microwave or radiofrequency radiation. The symptoms were called “neurasthenic.”
“Neurasthenia” was an older term for this group of symptoms, which was coined by an American physician, George Beard, in 1868, to describe a new type of illness that followed the building of the railroads and the telegraph system in this country.
The illness was particularly common among telegraph, and later among telephone operators. The term “neurasthenia” fell out of fashion in the twentieth century in North America, when this cluster of symptoms, or a large number of them, began to be referred to as “anxiety” symptoms, presumably of purely psychological origin.
Illness by radio waves has been rediscovered, and is now classed with illness caused by electricity in general, under the term “electrical sensitivity.”
There have been four international scientific conferences held in recent years on electrical sensitivity—one in Austria, two in Denmark, and one, for medical doctors, in Dallas, Texas. Two books exist on the subject, by Grant (1995) and Bergqvist (1997).
EHS Refuge Zone Open in France
There is a vast estate in the countryside of France that is a private emergency “Refuge Zone” that has been put at the disposal of EHS sufferers in distress, temporarily and without charge, on a humanitarian basis.
It is not a true White Zone, but is an area of low radiation without any EMF beams or lobe. The topography of the property eliminates most radiation, but there is still a variable residue from 15 kilometres away: with a major TV relay mast with mobile phone relay antennas. You will need to have your own caravan (aluminium body) with WC, or a camping car (no tents).
The EHS persons who come must be able to look after themselves. It is essential for anyone wishing to stay, to come for “a preliminary test” of a few days to se if their health improves.
