    BRIEF REPORT on the EHS provocation studies prepared by Dariusz Leszczynski, PhD, DSc (biochemistry) Adjunct Professor of Biochemistry at the University of Helsinki, Finland. Chief Editor of “˜Radiation and Health”™, a specialty of the “˜Frontiers in Public Health”™, Lausanne, Switzerland

    Note: This is not a comprehensive review of the published EHS provocation studies



    Part of the population considers themselves as sensitive to radiation emitted by the wireless communication devices and networks. Different studies have indicated that ca. 0.5″”11% of the population might be experiencing sensitivity symptoms. This ailment, called either electromagnetic hyper-sensitivity (EHS) or idiopathic environmental intolerance attributed to electromagnetic fields (IEI-EMF), is currently not considered by the World Health Organization as being caused by the exposures to electromagnetic fields (EMF). While the symptoms experienced by some persons are acknowledged as health impairment, the cause of these symptoms is considered to be unknown.
    Numerous experimental provocation studies (see Appendix Table) were executed to determine whether EMF exposure causes EHS. In provocation studies, volunteers are exposed to radiation emitted by the wireless communication devices, in controlled conditions, and asked whether they get health symptoms and whether they recognize when the radiation is on/off. Answers provided by the study subjects are subjective and not objective experimental data. Collectively, the provocation studies have indicated a lack of causality between the EHS symptoms and exposures to EMF.
