Electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS), or medically known as idiopathic environmental intolerance (IEI) by the World Health Organization , is described as
… characterized by a variety of non-specific symptoms, which afflicted individuals attribute to exposure to EMF. The symptoms most commonly experienced include dermatological symptoms (redness, tingling, and burning sensations) as well as neurasthenic and vegetative symptoms (fatigue, tiredness, concentration difficulties, dizziness, nausea, heart palpitation, and digestive disturbances). The collection of symptoms is not part of any recognized syndrome.
EHS resembles multiple chemical sensitivities (MCS), another disorder associated with low-level environmental exposures to chemicals. Both EHS and MCS are characterized by a range of non-specific symptoms that lack apparent toxicological or physiological basis or independent verification. A more general term for sensitivity to environmental factors is Idiopathic Environmental Intolerance (IEI), which originated from a workshop convened by the International Program on Chemical Safety (IPCS) of the WHO in 1996 in Berlin. IEI is a descriptor without any implication of chemical etiology, immunological sensitivity or EMF susceptibility. IEI incorporates a number of disorders sharing similar non-specific medically unexplained symptoms that adversely affect people. However since the term EHS is in common usage it will continue to be used here.
One of the most frustrating, and truly unfortunate aspects of EHS, is that everyone in the industries which generate EMFs/RFs which cause the problem, especially the professional association ICNIRP, adamantly denies it exists, and those who suffer with it are “psych jobs”! Well, that’s got to end now, as there are graphic studies proving visual differences in the brains of EHS sufferers compared with those folks who do not experience EHS or IEI.
Below are two lateral X-rays showing the differences between the brain of an EHS/IEI patient on the left and the brain of a non-EHS-compromised individual on the right.
In a preliminary Press Release dated December 5, 2017, the results of brain fMRIs (functional magnetic resonance imaging) from a pilot study have been released in anticipation of a Tele-Press Conference to be held Thursday, December 7, 2015, in Los Angeles, California.
The Peoples Initiative Foundation will be holding a tele-press conference to take questions from the media Thurs. Dec. 7th @ 12 noon PST. The study’s principle author, Dr. Gunnar Heuser [MD, PhD] will be on the call to take questions about the study, as well as Liz Barris, study organizer and one of the EHS cases in the study to take questions about EHS.

The results of Dr. Gunnar Heuser and Sylvia A. Heuser’s study were published in Volume 32 (September 2017) of De Gruyter’s Reviews on Environmental Health as the paper “Functional brain MRI in patients complaining of electrohypersensitivity after long term exposure to electromagnetic fields.”
The online published paper includes X-rays of all patients in the study, which indicate the severity of EHS/IEI and shows graphically how it physically affects brain tissue.
Electromagnetic fields are emitted by the following high-tech, aka ‘smart’ products, appliances and services:
- Any service or device that sends and/or receives voice, data or graphics/pictures using microwave wireless technology, e.g., cell phones, iPhones, smart phones, etc.
- AMI Smart Meters being retrofitted by electric, natural gas and water utilities
- Monitoring devices, e.g., baby monitors and wearable devices that track and record body data
- Wi-Fi in homes, schools, work places, cafés, or other public places providing it, such as doctors’ offices
For all those EHS patients, who refuse AMI Smart Meters claiming EHS and have pro se lawsuits before their respective state Public Utility Commission agency’s Administrative Law Courts, this 2017 study ought to refute the utilities medical and EMF/RF experts, who still believe in the ‘flat earth society’ theory when it comes to EMFs/RFs/ELFs and microwave-produced, non-thermal radiation waves adverse health effects that cause EHS/IEI.
