Description of symptoms as well as occurrence of IgE and positive Phadiatop Combi in persons with the physical impairment electrohypersensitivity

Please, note that I have got yet another article published - in Swedish only [the title is translated below into English]:

Holmboe G, Johansson O, "Symptombeskrivning samt förekomst av IgE och positiv Phadiatop Combi hos personer med funktionsnedsättningen elöverkänslighet", (="Description of symptoms as well as occurrence of IgE and positive Phadiatop Combi in persons with the physical impairment electrohypersensitivity", in Swedish), Medicinsk Access 2005; 1 (5): 58-63

I have now made a short summary of our recent article:

Holmboe G, Johansson O, "Symptombeskrivning samt förekomst av IgE och positiv Phadiatop Combi hos personer med funktionsnedsättningen elöverkänslighet", (="Description of symptoms as well as occurrence of IgE and positive Phadiatop Combi in persons with the physical impairment electrohypersensitivity", in Swedish), Medicinsk Access 2005; 1 (5): 58-63
//www.medicinskaxess.se/nr5/eloverkanslighet5.pdf

SUMMARY In this paper, the functional impairment electrohypersensitivity is investigated. The aim of the study was to characterize the complex set of symptoms and to order them according to the WHO's ICQ10 register of diagnoses. Furthermore, we also tested for the presence of increased levels of IgE or signs of a positive Phadiatop Combi (which is a screening test for allergies towards certain articles of food, pollen, insects and other animals) which both would be indicators of an immune system alert. If such increases would be found, they could then be used in the diagnosis of electrohypersensitivity.

Twenty-two persons (5 men, 17 women) participated. The age range was between 25 and 79 years. The symptoms were given in a ranked scale where the symptoms were attributed points according to the following: 0 = no symptoms at all, 1 = occasional, mild symptoms 2 = occasional, severe symptoms 3 = regular, mild symptoms 4 = regular, severe symptoms.

Symptoms of the skin and the nervous systems dominated the picture. The most frequent ones were skin redness, eczema and sweating, loss of memory, concentration difficulties, sleep disturbances, dizziness as well as muscular and joint-related pain, and muscular and joint-related weakness. Headache, faintness, nose blockade and fatigue were also common. In addition, 19 of the persons had symptoms from the gastrointestinal tract. All (!) the persons with the impairment electrohypersensitivity had tinnitus.

No connection between IgE blood levels and symptoms could be found, all the persons with electrohypersensitivity had normal values (<122 kU/l). Only 3 persons had a positive Phadiatop Combi.

In summary, it is of paramount importance to continue the investigation of persons with the impairment electrohypersensitivity. We would favour studies of electromagnetic fields' interaction with mast cell release of histamine and other biologically active substances, studies of lymphocyte viability as well as studies of the newly described serotonin-containing melanocytes. Also, continued analysis of the intraepidermal nerve fibers and their relations to these mast cells and serotonin-containing melanocytes are very important. Finally, not to be forgotten, a general investigation - of persons with the impairment electrohypersensitivity versus normal healthy volunteers - regarding the above markers as well as other markers for cell traffic, proliferation and inflammation is very much needed.

Such scientific work may lay a firm foundation for necessary adjustment of accessibility, thus helping and supporting all persons with the impairment electrohypersensitivity.

This information includes the English version of the above-referenced, study -- a "very important evaluation" that will hopefully go a long way toward moving away from "allergic-type sensitivity" to deal with the "real issue of EMF/EMR-induced toxicity" -- or "the poisoning" that results from chronic, prolonged exposures to even low levels of electromagnetic radiation pollution!!!

Those in a position of making decisions regarding funding will be making a major contribution toward the cause of improved health for everyone --- children are particularly vulnerable -- by providing financial support for Dr. Olle Johansson to help in his quest for truth.

Persons (I know more than one) who are helping and have helped support Dr. Johansson's efforts, deserve "special thanks," the words for which are impossible to come up with!!!

Take care everyone!!! Joanne

Betreff: IgE...EHS patients...2005 Epidem Study Johansson/Holmbee Von: JCMPelican@aol.com Datum: Wed, 26 Oct 2005 22:33:49 EDT An: JCMPelican@aol.com

Email 10-26-05 from Assoc. Prof. Olle Johansson to Joanne C. Mueller:

Dear Joanne,

This is (as usual) brilliant! I wonder too: What are the IgE levels after exposure to ionizing radiation? My guess would be that they would be increased.

Yes, EHS could very well not be a real "hypersensitivity" as in "allergic reaction," but rather "poisioning" which varies considerably depending on particularly daytime or nighttime EMF/EMR exposures.

The idea of adaption is also very tasty - it certainly deserves deep investigation...but by whom? ['Money, money, money - were art thou?'] Actually, there are - in older materials here in Sweden - quite strong indications for such an adaption in EHS.

Finally, one finding of our study - as well as of others - is that the base-line level of IgE has risen during the last decades, indicating that we all are drifting towards a general state of allergy/oversensitivity!

Take care!!

Best regards Yours Olle

Email 10-26-05 from Joanne C. Mueller to Assoc. Prof. Olle Johansson:


Dear Olle: An interesting and important study!!! Since IgE levels were not found to be elevated except in a few exposed persons (consistent with my two grandsons' rare immune -- low IgG subclasses 1 and 3 signifying "ageing"), I am wondering if you have any information re IgE levels after exposure to ionizing radiation?

It appears to me that your study supports what has happened in our family and in my guinea pig studies -- that EHS is not really "hypersensitivity" as in "allergic reaction," but rather "poisioning" which varies considerably depending on particularly nighttime EMF/EMR exposures. Perhaps IgE levels only rise "initially" when exposure occurs so that levels return to normal after "adaptation?" This makes me question whether IgE levels rise in response to low levels of arsenic (will also check Medline, etc.).

I am wondering whether "lymphocyte viability" would give information re a "left or right shift" and, if not, would you consider "absolute white count" as necessary for determining "inflammation?" I assume so, since I think I do have your study re "hypersegmented neutrophils" (slowed DNA synthesis -- "a marker for irradiation"). [Forgive "explanations" -- intended to help in my research as well as provide info to others.]

In thinking over the research, I do not recall right now whether C-reactive protein has been a part of EMF/EMR research but need to check that out. It does concern me a great deal that my Internist and Cardiologist do not check C-reactive protein while "hung up" (the big money/drug company issue re statins) on huge emphasis and need for lipid/cholesteol levels even tho "inflammation" may be the real culprit in heart disease and mosthealth problems. As you know, I have taken my Alzheimers' patient husband off of Lipitor (statin) due to possibility that cholesterol offers protection to the brain.

Anyway, thanks for the study re IgE which, as I said, confirms what we know about the boys. One can have low overall IGG levels as well as IgG subclass deficiencies with "inflammatory problems" such as chronic asthma, chronic sinus infections due to chronic, prolonged exposure to nighttime EMF/EMR (electric meter re boys) which would suggest an "allergic-type inflammatory response" but not have elevated IgE (Mayo Clinic RAST and/or your new study).

Sorry to branch out so far with cholesterol comments, etc. but....... Take care - Joanne
