Electrosensitivity is a condition not yet recognised by the medical establishment in the UK, but it is recognised in Sweden and has been demonstrated by researcher Dominique Belpomme and others (16). Numbers of people reporting symptoms (such as headache, dizziness and tinnitus) anecdotally are growing. Dr Erica Mallory-Blythe is a doctor and 5G campaigner who raises awareness about ES. See phire.org.

For ES sufferers, blanket 5G coverage will result in job loss and debilitating health symptoms. It could also be logically conjectured that with 5G and over time from existing wireless radiation, ES sufferers will grow in number.

Electrosensitivity to electronic devices such as cell phones, tablets, laptop computers, Wi-Fi routers and nearby cell towers are increasingly recognized. “Microwave illness”  (aka electrosensitivity or electrohypersensitivity or EHS or microwave syndrome) was described by NASA in the military in the 1970’s with a wave of ensuing research confirming these effects.  Studies show that anywhere from 1-13% of people report symptoms of EHS.

A 2017 comprehensive systemic review and meta analysis (Wang et al)  showed a significant association between mobile phone use and headaches. The mechanism is not fully understood but appears to be linked to membrane calcium channel effects, blood brain barrier effects or neurotransmitter effects. Bevington  in 2019 published his results of an extensive review that estimates about 0.65% of the general population are restricted in their work access due to electrosensitivity (EHS-EMF/IEA), and about 18% of the general population have moderate symptoms.

Symptoms regularly reported by researchers and physicians including effects experienced by those living adjacent to cell towers include:

  • headaches
  • insomnia
  • dizziness
  • irritability
  • fatigue
  • heart palpitations
  • nausea
  • loss of appetite
  • feeling of discomfort
  • poor concentration
  • memory loss
  • and neuropsychiatric problems such as depression.
