A group of scientists and doctors is calling on the World Health Organization (WHO) to recognise electro-sensitivity and chemical sensitivity as recognised diseases that are already affecting many people around the world.
The group-which includes 24 scientists, physicists and doctors from Europe and North America-also wants governments to take simple precautionary measures to prevent over-exposure to electro-magnetic radiation, usually from mobile phones and wi-fi networks, and chemicals.
They also want to see truly independent research undertaken into the dangers of mobile phones and pollutants in the environment; most research, which has declared mobile phones to be safe, has been funded by the mobile phone industry.
But, says the scientific committee of the Paris Appeal Fifth Congress, electro- and chemical sensitivity are escalating problems around the world, and are caused by EMFs (electro-magnetic fields) and chemicals.
The diseases can be triggered by acute, high-intensity exposure or chronic low-level exposure.
