Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity: OMS/Prof. Olle Johanson/Angel Levis
Electrosensitivity, a disease not by all recognized
Main Symptoms of electrosensitivity
– Skin: itching, rashes, allergies; – nervous system: sleep disorders, stress, neurasthenia, emotional disability, anxiety, headaches, migraines, depression; – muscular system: cramps, muscle aches, weakness; – of the cardiovascular system: arrhythmias, blood pressure disorders, stroke; – hormonal and the immune system: reduction of melatonin synthesis, alteration of lymphocyte populations; – sexual, reproduction and pregnancy (miscarriages); – Visual, acoustic, olfactory and digestive system;

The electromagnetic hypersensitivity is a disease. This was stated, against the opinion of institutions and corporations of the phone, is Professor Olle Johansson who, for over 20 years, studying the phenomenon.
The Sweden responded to the alarm of the Professor, other countries are considering whether to recognize the work and take action. The Italy, once again, seems to stop at the pole. Allergic to phone, cell phone, television and microwave. No, it's not a social uprising who rejects modernity, it is a real illness says the who, who estimates a digit between 1% and 3% of the world's population people with electrosensitivity. Disease symptoms are: headache, dizziness, flushing, tachycardia. “A call to the phone a day brought me to convulsions” says Sergio Crippa, Member of the Italian Association of sick electro-sensitive and Coordinator in Lombardia. The intensity varies from person to person, what does not change and it seems he will not vary with simplicity is the status of the disease which still is not considered a disease in effect in any country on the planet. Actually, an exception exists and is the usual Sweden, which as it happens is at the forefront in the protection of many civil rights. Recognition from this country is the result of years of pressure on the institutions of Dr. Olle Johanson, a true pioneer of the studies on electromagnetic hypersensitivity that, for over 20 years, studies the matter becoming, over time, a sort of spokesman of who in the world is declared sensitive. According to Johansson who declares that suffers from a true allergy. Our immune system, "explains the Swedish Professor – developed in harmony with enemies recognized and is not ready to face the “allergens” TV signals, radio waves and electromagnetic content etc. The intensity of the disorder vary of course depending on the case and Johanson has managed over the years to analyze and recognize the different types. This research has strengthened the conviction that the percentage of subjects with both high (between 3% and more on 10%) compared to who estimates. Obviously there is no real cure, the only hope at the moment is that politicians and Governments set new standards of safety in the development of new technologies. “In a resolution adopted on 4 September 2008 EU, the European Parliament recognised that exposure to radiation levels must be based on biological factors, not only on the effects of global warming. A position also underscored by a report last February 23” says Johansson. A signal that something is moving? Perhaps, as Canada, USA, United Kingdom and Switzerland are considering to recognize the electrosensitivity like a disease. Not so in Italy where the issue is at the heart of a strong debate. Protagonists of the dispute are, on the one hand, the Italian Association for the Electrosensitive and diseases caused by environmental and/or chronic intoxication (MCS) – fighting for the recognition of the disease – the other institutions and the Italian society of Electromagnetism that supports the who position that electrosensitivity would just a psychological suggestion. “Laboratory accurate data is lacking” Guglielmo D'inzeo, Professor of bioelectromagnetic Interaction says at The Sapienza University of Rome. These critics respond instead Angelo Levis, former Professor of environmental Mutagenesis in Padua and founder of Apple (Association for the prevention and fight against ElectroSmog), according to which the non-recognition of the disease is due simply to the mix of those who do research, who makes mobile services and international institutional reality. “This situation – says Levis – will result in the coming years, the same damage that tobacco has made to the ' 900, and its effectiveness is demonstrated by epidemiological studies, geography and the work of Johansson, who opened a glimmer of light for all sufferers.
