A Website Dedicated to Electrohypersensitivity (EHS)
Idaho is a beautiful and scenic state with a population of 1.6 million people.
An estimated 3 to 10 percent of Idahoans (48,000 to 160,000)
suffer devastating, life-altering symptoms of electrohypersensitivity [EHS].1
It is estimated that another approximately 35 percent of Idaho's population
experiences mild to moderate EHS symptoms.2
EHS is defined by medical experts as a chronic, multi-system, inflammatory syndrome
triggered by environmental stressors, especially man-made electromagnetic fields.3
EHS is a growing problem across the USA and around the globe.
In Taiwan, for example, 13.3% of the population reported symptoms of EHS.
Three percent of the world's 7.2 billion population is 216,000,000 people with EHS.4
EHS can affect people of all ages.
The symptoms are as individual as the people who suffer from it.
EHS can afflict a person SUDDENLY, after acute electromagnetic exposure.
Or, it may develop INCREMENTALLY, over time, from chronic electromagnetic exposure.
leads to functional impairment when people allergic to man-made
are unable to access areas of public
accommodation, transportation and housing.
Many EHS symptoms are discussed in advertisements for commonly-sought
medications. Some medical experts and scientists postulate that, given the
massive amount of electromagnetic pollution now in the environment, almost
everyone suffers from one or more manifestations of EHS. Because there are now thousands of published scientific papers on the deleterious biological effects of electromagnetic fields –especially high-frequency microwaves used for wireless technologies– it is possible that there are two groups of EHS-affected people: those who UNDERSTAND that electromagnetic fields cause their symptoms and those who DON'T YET RECOGNIZE the connection.
The reported symptoms5 of EHS include:
Flu-like symptoms chronic fatigue sleep disturbances
gastrointestinal heart palpitations depression headaches
skin rash difficulty concentrating loss of memory
nerve and soft tissue pain frequent infections
loss of hearing visual disturbances dizziness tinnitus
impaired balance feeling of vibration night sweats nose bleeds
irritability thyroid malfunction weight abnormalities
joint and limb pain nausea loss of appetite
chronic sinusitis frequent urge to urinate lymph node swelling
adrenal imbalance blood sugar swings severe chemical allergies
Medical experts who specialize in EHS report that many people can REVERSE their EHS symptoms if they identify the environmental causes and avoid exposure to toxic triggers. They also caution that if people IGNORE
their symptoms indefinitely, EHS can become a chronic and irreversible
syndrome, possibly leading to serious conditions such as dementia,
diabetes and even cancer.6
In 2016, researchers in India did a medical survey among professionals who work for information technology (IT) companies. All of these people, both male and female, use cell phones. Most of them also use: wireless computer networks, Bluetooth headsets, Wi-Fi, cordless phones and microwave ovens. The survey revealed that a large percentage of these people working in high radiofrequency electromagnetic fields report suffering from EHS symptoms, although the symptoms were not recognized as such.7
For example, 69.5 percent of the women reported frequent headaches, 39 percent noted severe pain in teeth and deteriorated fillings, 21.7 percent reported tremors, 41.9 percent suffer poor short memory, 48.9 percent reported severe irritability and 36 percent admitted to difficulty sleeping. Other EHS symptoms reported by the surveyed group include: allergies, crushing fatigue, hair loss, very dry mucous membranes, severe and chronic pain, difficulty concentrating, blurred vision, ringing in the ears, dizziness and depression. It is likely that people everywhere, who are continuously exposed to high levels of man-made electromagnetic fields, are suffering from classical EHS symptoms without realizing that their ill-health is a manifestation of a universal syndrome.
website is sponsored by a group of concerned Idahoans dedicated to sharing the latest available information about EHS and the environmental factors which cause it. Our mission is to:
• Empower increasing numbers of electromagnetically-sensitive people with
greater awareness of EHS causes, symptoms, up-to-date research and treatment protocols
• Provide access to the latest technical and medical information about
EHS through on-line resources and printed information
• Educate legislators, school administrators, government officials, medical staff, utility
company board members and the Idaho Public Utility Commission to acknowledge EHS as a medically-documented, environmentally-induced syndrome
• Urge protection of EHS
sufferers by requesting reasonable accommodation
in all public places, as mandated under current laws for
non-discrimination and equal access, including the Americans with Disabilities
• Advocate for the protection of all living creatures from excessive exposure to man-made electromagnetic stressors
