Electrohypersensitivity as a Newly Identified and Characterized Neurologic Pathological Disorder How to Diagnose, Treat, and Prevent It

" EHS and MCS can be characterized clinically by a similar symptomatic picture, and biologically by low-grade inflammation and an autoimmune response involving autoantibodies against O-myelin. Moreover, 80% of the patients with EHS present with one, two, or three detectable oxidative stress biomarkers in their peripheral blood, meaning that overall these patients present with a true objective somatic disorder. Moreover, by using ultrasonic cerebral tomosphygmography and transcranial Doppler ultrasonography, we showed that cases have a defect in the middle cerebral artery hemodynamics, and we localized a tissue pulsometric index deficiency in the capsulo-thalamic area of the temporal lobes, suggesting the involvement of the limbic system and the thalamus." {Credits 1}

" We conclude that EHS—whatever its causal origin—is becoming a worldwide plague." {Credits 1}

" Hence, on this basis, and because of the experimental evidence provided by studies in animals [37,38,39,43,44] and in humans [11,14,23,24] have shown the detrimental impact of EMF on health we believe, there is presently no sufficiently robust scientific data to refute a role of EMF exposure in inducing the previously described clinical symptoms and biological alterations in EHS patients.

Therefore, the causal origin of EHS should be established with a different scientific approach. RF and ELF were found to cause persistent adverse biological effects not only in animals [46,47] but also in plants [48,49] and microorganisms [50]. Here too, such observations certainly dismiss the hypothesis of a nocebo effect as the initial cause of EHS. In fact, the inflammation and oxidative/nitrosative states we showed in EHS patient are remarkable since they confirm the data obtained experimentally in animals exposed to these two types of non-ionizing frequencies [37,38,39], especially in the brain [43,44]. Furthermore, the limbic system-associated capsulo-thalamic abnormalities that we showed to characterize these patients [12,33] may likely correspond to the hippocampal neuronal alterations caused by EMF exposure in rats [51,52,53]." {Credits 1}
