Digital Detox Hardcore Mode On
Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity Myth
Last time we wrote about super-hot digital detox we promised to delve into the subject. If you missed our last article on the topic, digital detox is a very popular movement for reducing the presence on users on-line and that of gadgets in everyday life. DD architects believe modern gadget to seriously cripple relationships and communication. In this moniker the word “detox” is just a poetic exaggeration, highlighting the “toxic” influence the digital world have over our life. But there are people for whom it’s a bitter truth.
These people claim to have a severe medical condition caused by Wi-Fi networks, mobile network towers and suchlike. It’s called electromagnetic hypersensitivity or EHS for short. In some aggravated cases they cannot stand the presence of a microwave in their homes and retire to woodlands and caves. Like these women:
The victims report all kinds of non-specific symptoms: headaches, vertigo, fatigue, sleep disorders, skin rashes, nose bleeding, muscle pain. They don’t simulate them and suffer in real. Yet the medical community remains skeptical. The patients have to go to court to get their condition acknowledged as a decease. One French woman was awarded the disability allowance from the state on a basis she got a severe case of EHS or Wi-Fi allergy as mass media title it: French Court Awards Woman Disability Grant For Allergy o Gadgets.
But can the modern wireless networks be really blamed for this new decease? We in iGotOffer have done some research. And we must admit that we join the skeptics party here.
Electromagnetic waves weren’t invented, they were DISCOVERED. It means, that they existed long before Faraday, Marconi, Tesla, Edison and Bell. They were here when Columbus set sail. We just hadn’t enough knowledge and no devices to detect them and use. Where did they come from? First of all, our Earth is one giant magnet. By the way, this is the reason we do exist on the planet. Mars, for instance, has no magnetic field and, therefore, no life.
Moreover, electromagnetic waves are radiated by the stars. Put in poetic way, they are the voices of the stars. This phenomenon makes possible the usage of radio telescopes because radio waves are electromagnetic waves by nature. Our Sun is also the star. And it radiates electromagnetic waves. Sometimes they are so strong that they can block radio communications. This phenomenon is called the sun storm.
So every second of our life we bath in electromagnetic waves, we breath them and more than that! The human body can emanate the weak electromagnetic wave too! If the mankind had some intolerance to electromagnetic waves, it would have died long ago! Ok, but what if a person is intolerant to the wave of a certain length, you may ask. The way some people are allergic to apples but can eat peaches. This possibility has also been tested by doctors and scientists. As the World Health Organization memorandum states it, there were discovered no connection between the symptoms and the electromagnetic waves presence. The patients were monitored in special isolated labs, used for elementary particles studies. They had no way to tell whether any sources of electromagnetic impulses were on or off.
The results are positive, that their condition has nothing to do with the physical phenomenon in question.
If you watch that YouTube video above, you’ll see that women are eager to be interviewed, they tell about their lives in details and show no discomfort. But they must! If they are so sensitive to electromagnetic fields, they must suffer with all these video cams, lightboxes and other devices around. Because cams and lightboxes are the sources of electromagnetic waves as well.
But why people do have such dreadful symptoms? They do not fake them, they suffer and are desperate. And here we leave physics for psychology.
From the start our immune system works like the state-of-the-art security system. All nutrition elements and vitamins got a ‘signature’ that tells: I’m OK, I’m a good guy. The body has its’ own signatures library to check all the incomers. If the library got corrupted the body can identify a friend as an enemy and reacts according to the protocol.
We’ve got rashes, puffed eyes and other nice symptoms. The thing is, nobody knows exactly, what ruins the body security system. There are not one, but several reasons for that. One of the theories claims that allergy is the manifestation of the psychological issues.
For example, you’ve got a very nasty female relative you have to stay in touch with. That sweet but unbearable lady has a cat. You’ve got nothing against the feline but you can’t stand the pet owner. So, every time you visit her or she came to your place and brings the cat’s hairs on her shoes’ soles or clothes, you’ve got an allergy attack. Your politeness makes you behave nicely, but your body protests vigorously. This can also be true for Wi-Fi allergy. Perhaps, those with EHS need not a recluse place to live but a good shrink to solve their issues.
Are the cell towers completely safe then? Well, if you’re going to camp at the foot of the cell tower, it’s NOT safe. The same goes for picnicking right in the six-lane highway. But if you don’t do such crazy things you have all chances to celebrate your 90th birthday.
