Zwitserland: constructie appartementsgebouw voor chemisch en elektrogevoelige personen



















In december 2013 werd in de rand van Zurich de constructie voltooid van een appartementsgebouw speciaal ontworpen voor mensen die lijden aan meervoudige chemische sensitiviteit (MCS) en elektrohypersensitiviteit (EHS). Er werden materialen gebruikt die zo weinig mogelijk chemische stoffen en geuren uitstoten en het gebouw werd ook afgeschermd voor elektromagnetische straling.


Binnenin het gebouw is het gebruik van chemische producten verboden, alsook het gebruik van gsm's en draadloze apparatuur. Er zijn vaste telefoon- en internetverbindingen.


Het gaat om een initiatief van de 'Healthy Life and Living Foundation', dat werd gerealiseerd met de samenwerking en financiële steun van de dienst huisvesting van de stad Zurich. Het kostenplaatje van het project bedroeg 5 miljoen euro. De stad Zurich stelde de grond beschikbaar en zorgde voor een interestvrije lening.

Dr. Leszczynski analyseert de gebreken van studies naar elektrogevoeligheid


De Finse wetenschapper en stralingsexpert Dariusz Leszczynski analyseert naar aanleiding van een recent Canadees rapport nogmaals de vele gebreken in de studies naar elektrogevoeligheid (EHS – elektrohypersensitiviteit). Deze doorgaans slecht ontworpen studies zijn een verspilling van (belastings)geld en leiden volgens hem tot foute conclusies.


Eén van de problemen is dat het onderzoek vaak wordt uitgevoerd door psychologen en psychiaters. Uiteraard kunnen psychologen enkel tot psychologische conclusies komen: ze zijn niet in staat om een licht te werpen op de biochemische, fysiologische processen die aan de basis kunnen liggen van EHS. Ze hebben daar noch de juiste achtergrondkennis voor, noch beheersen ze de nodige onderzoeksmethoden.

First officially recognized case of the functional impairment electrohypersensitivity in South Africa


Zie de commentaar van Dr. Lauraine M H Vivian and Prof. Olle Johansson onderaan het volgende wetenschappelijke artikel: klik.


"In January 2013, thirty year old James Lech a MIT post-graduate student became the first person to be diagnosed as suffering with electrohypersensitivity (EHS) and registered for medical disability in South Africa. He is categorized as permanently disabled and receives R800 (US $74) per month. Unlike in Sweden where he would claim various accessibility measures, Lech will remain confined to his in-law's middle class suburban home in Cape Town, from where he is able to walk in a limited route when healthy enough. Outside of this he is affected by competing electromagnetic fields and suffers the possibility of his bodily systems 'shutting down'.


Lech's diagnosis was made by two government doctors who reviewed his medical records, extensively examined him, and diagnosed him with an array of ICD clinical diagnoses to best medically describe EHS. This came after numerous doctors stated that they recognized that he was suffering severe dysfunction but did not believe in EHS.

Article about Dafna Tachover & EHS - Radiation Victim - Published in an Israeli paper Yediot Ahcharonot


In an isolated house, in the mountains of a natural reserve in northern New York, far away from antennas and cell phones, from laptops and wireless Internet, lives attorney Dafna Tachover. She escaped there after being diagnosed with Electromagnetic Hyper Sensitivity. From there, she conducts her fight for those who suffer from this condition. "The life I wanted to live I already lost" she says, "but not my fighting spirit".


It was the happiest time in the life of Dafna Tachover, a lawyer. After years of intense work as senior executive in an investment company in Manhattan, she married Dr. Richard Stein, a doctor and a scientist who received a research position in Princeton University, so they moved to Princeton and hoped to change from a couple to a family. The first step in her plan to start a law practice was to purchase a new laptop. "I brought the laptop to our leased apartment, I took it out from the box and started working" says Tachover, 39, going back to July 19th, 2009, the day her life changed. "A few minutes after I started working, I started feeling vibrations in the area near the mouse pad. Then I started feeling tingling in my feet and my hands."

Switzerland: Dead Tired But Wide Awake: Testimony of Electrohypersensitivity


Artikel over elektrogevoeligheid in de Zwitserse pers:


Die Wochenzeitung - 24/01/2014 - Anytime, anywhere online - this has its price. Electromagnetic pollution has increased enormously. Electrosensitive persons can barely live in towns, and doctors are warning about it.


"From a technical point of view I have to say that mobile technology is awesome. You can move freely anywhere. Even in an emergency you have a connection -. Tiptop »


It is easy to imagine Marcel Bolli as a cell phone freak: Technology plays an important role in his life. He learned mechanics and retrained later on the computer. For a long time, he enthusiastically rode a motorbike. But Marcel Bolli now has no cell phone. He has no cordless phones and no wireless systems (WLAN). The 38-year-old from Schaffhausen is electrosensitive: He is allergic to so-called non-ionizing radiation (NIR).

Elektrogevoelige priester pleegt zelfmoord - ondraaglijke pijn in hoofd door 4G


De Duitse priester Carsten Häublein pleegt zelfmoord na 10 jaar lange lijdensweg door elektrogevoeligheid. De pijn die 4G hem bezorgde, een brandend gevoel in het hoofd, was ondraaglijk geworden. Een zoveelste slachtoffer in de stille Holocaust die momenteel plaatsvindt.

"A year ago, on February 14th, a day dedicated to love, I got a heartbreaking message which reflects most the unloving nature of our society. I was informed that my friend, Carsten Häublein, a German priest who suffered from EHS for 10 years, could no longer take the pain of the 'Fire' 4G LTE, which burned inside his head, and committed suicide."

Electrosensitivity: a first person perspective by Dr David Fancy – co-founder of WEEP – Wireless Electrical and Electromagnetic Pollution


Part of a presentation delivered in the context of Lakehead University's research and innovation week, February 2010, at Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada.


You'll notice from my credentials, that although I am a researcher and academic, I am not trained in scientific research. I would not be here this evening if I had not, one day in 2001, had an odd experience. It was a simple and unremarkable experience, and yet one that was a harbinger of many challenges to come. At the time, I was writing my doctoral dissertation on the politics of representation of ethnicity in contemporary French theatre. I was spending a lot of time on my computer, a laptop. A few months into an intense writing phase, I noticed that my left hand would get sore by the end of the day. Writer's hand, repetitive strain injury, I thought. Before long however, my left hand was sore earlier and earlier in the day. Why my left hand, I wondered? And why did the soreness go away approximately an hour after I finished typing. And why did that same hand not bother me when I was playing guitar to relax in the evening?

Nieuwe studie: hypothese over de meetbaarheid van elektrogevoeligheid



PubMed - "Electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) is an ill-defined term to describe the fact that people who experience health symptoms in the vicinity of electromagnetic fields (EMFs) regard them as causal for their complaints. Up to now most scientists assume a psychological cause for the suffering of electromagnetic hypersensitive individuals. This paper addresses reasons why most provocation studies could not find any association between EMF exposure and EHS and presents a hypothesis on diagnosis and differentiation of this condition. Simultaneous recordings of heart rate variability, microcirculation and electric skin potentials are used for classification of EHS. Thus, it could be possible to distinguish "genuine" electromagnetic hypersensitive individuals from those who suffer from other conditions."

Radiation from wireless technology affects the blood, the heart, and the autonomic nervous system




Exposure to electrosmog generated by electric, electronic, and wireless technology is accelerating to the point that a portion of the population is experiencing adverse reactions when they are exposed. The symptoms of electrohypersensitivity (EHS), best described as rapid aging syndrome, experienced by adults and children resemble symptoms experienced by radar operators in the 1940s to the 1960s and are well described in the literature. An increasingly common response includes clumping (rouleau formation) of the red blood cells, heart palpitations, pain or pressure in the chest accompanied by anxiety, and an upregulation of the sympathetic nervous system coincident with a downregulation of the parasympathetic nervous system typical of the "fight-or-flight" response. Provocation studies presented in this article demonstrate that the response to electrosmog is physiologic and not psychosomatic. Those who experience prolonged and severe EHS may develop psychologic problems as a consequence of their inability to work, their limited ability to travel in our highly technologic environment, and the social stigma that their symptoms are imagined rather than real.
