People from all walks of life have reported symptoms of electrosensitivity, which include headaches, fatigue, heart palpitations, dizziness, irritability, brain fog and nausea. These same symptoms have been described by NASA decades ago in servicemen exposed to microwave radiation in radar communications thus was termed “Microwave Illness” or “Microwave Sickness”. See Military Studies. Here are physicians, writers, musicians, computer scientists and children who have openly discussed their stories in the media, in medical publications and as public testimony. People who have implanted medical devices have also reported symptoms in the presence of wireless devices and metal detectors.

Dr. Ann Lee Testimony SB649 in 2017
Dr. Ann Lee and her son testify in Sacramento California against SB 649 to streamline small cell antenna placement throughout cities and counties. Her son was found to be sensitive to wireless EMR from a cluster of antennas, reporting heart palpitations with near exposure. Extensive tests by his physician could not find any cardiac pathology.
Testimony in opposition to AB57 in California in 2015
Multiple electrosensitive residents testify in opposition to AB57 in California which was signed by Governor Brown in 2015 and in essence fast tracks cell tower placement. AB 57 allows “collocation or siting application for a wireless telecommunications facility is deemed approved if the city or county fails to approve or disapprove the application within the reasonable time periods specified…” This bill puts a burden on cities and counties who prior to AB57 would have a longer, more thorough process for cell tower application approval including more public input.
Charlene Acres Presents to Royal Society in Canada about Her Daughter’s EHS at School
Charlene Acres is a computer scientist and mother who clearly describes her daughter’s development of electrohypersensitivity (EHS) when at school. Her daughters symptoms were severe headaches and fatigue. They found that the cell towers near school and addition of wireless systems in school caused the symptoms. The levels of Electromagnetic radiation measured in the school were within the Safety Code 6 regulations. This is a compelling and useful story to help understand EHS which is well documented. Most physicians were not able to diagnose or treat this condition.
Jeromy Johnson: Ted Talk Wireless Wake-up Call”
In “Wireless Wake-up Call” Silicon-Valley Engineer Jeromy Johnson masterfully leads us through his story and experience with electrosensivity. His development of “microwave sickness” forced him to find solutions that led him back to good health. He highlights the need for silicon valley to develop safer and still wonderful technology that reduces microwave radio frequency exposures. Jeromy established the website http://www.EMFAnalysis.com to help others find effective alternatives to wireless technologies and return to safer wired connections.
Computer Scientist Peter Sullivan on Electrohypersensitivity
Computer scientist Peter Sullivan discusses his experience finding answers to the development of his own electrosensitivity and contributions to his children’s autism at a Building Biology conference in 2015. He has researched this thoroughly and despite the fact he is not a physician explains in clear language how chemicals toxins and electromagnetic radiation from wireless devices have similar biologic toxic effects. He highlights neurologist Dr. Martha Herbert’s work and the theory of environmental toxic loads causing illness in those who have predisposition when a certain toxic level is reached which causes biological stress with an inflammatory response.
Gary Olhoeft, PhD, Professor Emeritus of Geophysics on Medical Implant Interference
Gary Olhoeft, PhD, Professor Emeritus of Geophysics, Colorado School of Mines and Life Member of IEEE discusses in detail about how wireless radiation, including metal detectors, can interfere with medical implants. He then describes his disability after a deep brain stimulator was placed. He quickly learned what wireless devices he was sensitive to. Interesting and relevant academic and clinical perspective.
Magda Havas, PhD, Associate Professor of Environmental & Resource Studies at Trent University
Dr. Havas explains why some firefighters experienced electrohypersensitivty (EHS) when cell towers were placed near or on their fire stations. Because of this observation and the growing science of biological effects of wireless radiation the International Association of Fire Fighters ( IAFF) developed Resolution 15 IAFF Resolution 15 in 2004 that opposes cell towers on their facilities. This video describes the science and symptoms of non-ionizing radiation, with demonstration of radiation levels with meters. At time 32:53, a Toronto woman describes in detail the slow development of symptoms of EHS in she and her daughter when a cell tower was placed on the top floor of her apartment. After the acute exposure she became sensitive to devices she was not sensitive to before.
