Omega from: "The dangers of environmental illnesses caused by electromagnetic fields and chemical emissions". - The evidence that VDUs, mobile phones, electric lights and other modern appliances can make you ill.

In 1962 Rachel Carson in Silent Spring opened the world's eyes to the dangers of insecticides and weedkillers and other common products leaking dangerous chemicals into the food chain, In the intervening decades other dangers have been recognised after years of opposition from manufacturers, such as that both smoking and asbestos can be fatal.

Today we are facing a powerful new concern. It involves millions of people, particularly in the West, who are ill even though their doctors can't make a proper diagnosis. Environmental illnesses are known under a number of names, like Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME), Immune Dysfunction Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Electro-Hypersensitivity, Sick Building Syndrome.

These illnesses have variously been linked to VDUs, mobile phones and masts, electric lights, TVs, and chemicals used in the manufacture of modern appliances.

This is the first book to make the connections between the range of illnesses and the range of appliances. The result of many years research, often under difficult conditions, it highlights what many scientists in different fields are warning-that we now have dangerous chemicals embedded in the manufacture of everyday appliances that we mistakenly consider safe. And they're not.

Gunni Nordstrom is an investigative journalist in Sweden, the world-wide centre of the mobile phone industry, where much of the research on Environmental Illness has been carried out. She has published several books on health problems related to computer screens, Sjuk av bildskarm Tiden 1989, 9155034845, Faltslaget Tiden 1995, 9155040837, Morklaggning Hjalmarson & Hogstedt 2000, 9189080416.

Sample Press Coverage on the increasing awareness of the dangers of electromagnetic fields:

25 April 03 - The Daily Telegraph: ‘residents of a hamlet near a mobile phone mast have recorded high levels of illness, including seven cases of cancer, raising fresh concerns over the safety of the transmitters.’

13 September 03 - New Scientist The report recommended (by William Stewart) a “precautionary appraoch” towards the use of mobile phones, especially among children.

25 June 03 - Daily Mail - Dr Dariusz Leszczynski and his colleagues from the Finnish Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority reported that low-level phone radiation can cause ‘stress’ reactions in cells isolated from human blood vessesls...

19 June 02 - Evening Standard - Radiation from mobile phones causes changes to human cells which could pose risks to health, an authoritative two-year study has concluded.’

03 New York Times - ‘To date, hundreds of former IBM workers have contracted cancers they claim are linked to the chemicals they used while working at the company, including blood and brain tumors, leukemia and many cases of breast cancer.’ - This is a small selection of recent news items on the subject."

I suggest you to read the book “The invisible disease” by Gunni Nordstrom. ISBN 1-903816-71-8 http://www.o-books.net/currentaffairs.htm
It is about“ The dangers of environmental illnesses caused by electromagnetic fields and chemical emissions. - The evidence that VDUs, mobile phones, electric lights and other modern appliances can make you ill.”

I act as an international contact person for FEB in Sweden. In USA I have the following contacts to recommend:

Dr. Gunnar Heuser, NeuroMed and NeuroTox Associates Medical Group; Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine at U.C.L.A. School of Medicine.
E-mail: gheuser@ucla.edu
His mailing address as of 1998: 17366 Sunset Boulevard #101B, Pacific Palisades, CA 90272.

In an affidavit of 11:06:98 he wrote, "As a clinician, I can state that electrical sensitivity is a real medical disease. My more than twenty electrically sensitive patients and all other electrically sensitive patients are in urgent need of relief. Exposure to any radio frequency radiation should be avoided in these patients."

Dr. Hooshang Hooshmand. Neurological Associates, 1255 37th suite, Suite B, Vero Beach, Florida 32960. Tels: 561 770 9339
e-mail: hoosh@prodigy.net

Dr. Hooshmand has treated electrically injured patients for decades. He has written and lectured widely on the subject. One of his specialised interests is the treatment of stray voltage victims.

Dr. William Rea, Environmental Health Center, 8345 Walnut Hill Lane, #205. Dallas, Texas 75231. Tel: 214 368 4132
E-mail: wjr@ehcd.com
Dr. William Rea has treated many with the condition, at his Texan Clinic. He is described as "likely the pre-eminent environmental medicine practitioner in the United States. Website information on his Dallas Environmental Health Clinic (plus his other clinics) is at: http://www.ehcd.com/center/ From there you can access various features of the clinics.

Also worth accessing is the website for proceedings of conferences held on environmental medicine. A great conference right on electrosensitivity took place in 1997. The abstracts are online. You could trace lots of specialists from these abstracts.
To access this: http://www.aehf.com/articles . Then scroll forward to 1997.

Also Dr. Robert Becker and Andrew Marino, Ph.D. would be worth contacting for information on current specialists in ES (electrosensitivity). A transcript of Linda Moulton Howe's May 14, 2000 "British Cell Phone Alert and an Interview with Robert O. Becker, M.D." can be reached at
http://www.earthfiles.com/earth134.htm. She would know his current address. He was/is professionally affiliated with Dep. of Orthopedic Surgery, State U of New York, Upstate Med. Center, but as he qualified in medicine way back in 1948 perhaps he has retired now.

I hope this can be of some help to you
