According to an article written by Christopher Ketcham in the Earth Island Journal, there seems to be a growing consensus that there are a class of humans who are hypersensitive to Electromagnetic Fields – the signals that come off cell phone towers and various other forms of wireless communications.
For evidence, Ketcham points to a number of people, including Alison Rall. In January 1990, a cell tower goes up 800 feet from Alison Rall’s dairy farm in Mansfield, Ohio. By fall, the cattle herd that pastures near the tower is sick, and Rall’s three young children begin suffering bizarre skin rashes, raised red “hot spots.” The kids are hit with waves of hyperactivity. The girls lose hair. Rall, when she becomes pregnant with a fourth child, can’t gain weight.
Desperate to understand what is happening to her family and her farm, she contacts an Environmental Protection Agency scientist named Carl Blackman. He’s an expert on the biological effects of radiation from electromagnetic fields (EMFs)—the kind of radiofrequency EMFs (RF-EMFs) by which all wireless technology operates, including not just cell towers and cell phones but also wi-fi hubs and wi-fi-capable computers, “smart” utility meters, and even cordless home phones. “With my government cap on, I’m supposed to tell you you’re perfectly safe,” Blackman tells her. “With my civilian cap on, I have to tell you to consider leaving.”
In another case, there is a woman who gets sick after the electric company places a wireless electrical meter in her house. In Santa Fe , New Mexico there is a woman who has taken to wearing aluminum foil to kill wireless signals. Then there is the former world record marathoner who moved to house ringed by mountains to protect herself from cell frequencies.
The government of Sweden reports that the disorder known as electromagnetic hypersensitivity, or EHS, afflicts an estimated 3 percent of the population. Even the former prime minister of Norway, Gro Harlem Brundtland, has acknowledged that she suffers “strong discomfort” when she is exposed to cell phones.
