Electrohipersensitivity (EHS)


More and more people are exposed to varying degrees, a combination of electric fields of low and high frequency (EF), magnetic fields (MF) and electromagnetic fields (EMF) of different signal patterns, intensities and technical applications for several periods of time, a phenomenon generally known as electromagnetic pollution.

It is suspected that environmental conditions, such as increased population exposure to radio waves generated, among others, base stations of cordless telephones, mobile (GPRS, UMTS, etc.), networks wireless (WLAN), as well as exposure to electric and magnetic fields generated by the lines, and electrical devices, may have a causal role.

Some experts consider that electro-hypersensitivity (EHS) and MCS may be two faces of the same pathological condition of associated environmental hypersensitivity, a condition that is causing serious consequences for the health, professional and family life of the people affected. Although there are no official data yet, a high and growing number of people are suffering from EHS around the world; In modern societies, to a greater or lesser extent, it is estimated that it can affect between 3 and 5% of the population.

Affected people present several symptoms in varying degrees of intensity, ranging from headache, tinnitus, superficial and/or deep sensitivity disorders, attention and concentration deficit, insomnia, fatigue, depression, and different neuro-vegetative manifestations.

For the medical profession that poses new challenges for diagnosis and treatment.
