On May 18th of this year, an international group of eminent scientists, doctors, and educators released the 2015 Brussels International Scientific Declaration on Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity and Multiple Chemical Sensitivity.
This extraordinary document affirms what many of us already know:
- that a high and growing number of persons are suffering from EHS and MCS worldwide
- that EHS and MCS affect women, men and children;
- that on the basis of the presently available peer-reviewed scientific evidence of adverse health effects of electromagnetic fields (EMFs) and various chemicals, and on the basis of clinical and biological investigations of patients, EHS is associated with exposure to EMFs and MCS with chemical exposure;
- that many frequencies of the electromagnetic spectrum (radio- and microwave frequencies as well as low and extremely low frequencies) and multiple chemicals are involved in the occurrence of EHS and MCS respectively;
The unprecedented list continues, and ends by calling on “all national and international bodies and institutions, more particularly the World Health Organization (WHO), to recognize EHS and MCS as true medical conditions which acting as sentinel diseases may create a major public health concern in years to come worldwide i.e. in all the countries implementing unrestricted use of electromagnetic field-based wireless technologies and marketed chemical substances.”
