Any electrosensitive person who knows the World Health Organisation's (WHO's) view of EHS, contained in the "Electromagnetic fields and public health" page on the website, will know that we are not being well served, and that many of our problems in gaining recognition and accommodation for our condition originate here.
This is what WHO says about electrosensitivity:
EHS is characterized by a variety of non-specific symptoms that differ from individual to individual. The symptoms are certainly real and can vary widely in their severity.
Whatever its cause, EHS can be a disabling problem for the affected individual.
EHS has no clear diagnostic criteria and there is no scientific basis to link EHS symptoms to EMF exposure.
Further, EHS is not a medical diagnosis, nor is it clear that it represents a single medical problem.
On this basis, and also on the wider refusal of WHO to accept that non-thermal exposure to electromagnetic radiation is harmful (except, puzzlingly, in the classification by the International Agency for Research on Cancer, part of the WHO, of both radiofrequency and lower frequency electric and magnetic fields as possible carcinogens), it seems that this organisation can legitimately be criticised for its complete lack of precaution concerning the biological effects of EMFs.
The following was sent to me by Olga Sheean recently, and I think that this vote of no confidence is a really excellent idea. I hope that it musters an amazing number of votes, and that it might force the World Health Organisation to sit up and, very belatedly, take notice:
WHO - worldwide vote of no confidence
I would be very grateful if you could endorse this vote of no confidence in WHO and its EMF Project, as well as some demands for science-based action on EMFs and microwave sickness.
More info below or go straight to the webpage for details:
I’m sharing this with as many EHS/EMR networks, journalists, specialists and ‘impactivists’ as possible, so that the names obtained can be added to a document I’m preparing for submission to WHO and its EMF Project.
The document will be calling WHO on its failure to acknowledge EHS and address the proven harm caused by EMFs, as well as on its hiring of a blatantly industry-biased electrical engineer to head its EMF Project.
It would be great if you could also share the link with your contacts.
What’s unique about this vote + call to action:
-Your e-mail address will NOT be shared with WHO or anyone else. It will be kept on file for use only if I’m challenged by WHO on the legitimacy of the names provided.
-Your name/e-mail address will not be added to my mailing list, but you may sign up separately if you wish to receive updates from me on the vote and other EMR/EHS-related info.
-The call to action is on my website and is not connected to any other social change/petition platform, so you will not receive any other requests to support a cause or sign a petition.
-This is a chance for us to collectively have an impact, letting the World Health Organization know that we no longer recognize its authority or respect its unscientific, industry-driven decisions regarding the worldwide harm being caused by wireless radiation.
Feedback and comments are welcome.
If anyone would like to submit a comment about their personal situation (one short paragraph), they are welcome to e-mail it to me and I will include it in the WHO document, using their initials or whatever ID they wish to provide.
