Electro- Hyper- Awareness Archive

On the Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul, the character Chuck McGill, a lawyer played by Michael McKean, has a rather memorable condition. He frequently wraps himself in a space blanket to protect his body from cell phones or wireless internet, claiming the electromagnetic fields emitted by these devices sicken him. He has — or thinks he has — a case of what’s known as electromagnetic hypersensitivity, or EHS. This is not a condition most doctors recognize. The Guardian was quick to debunk the supposed sciencebehind EHS, claiming that the condition is overhyped by the media, and that while the symptoms sufferers report may indeed [&hellip

Have the government and General Electric lied to us? Action Alert!

Sounds good—until you realize that CFL bulbs contain mercury, and mercury poses a significant cancer risk. A new study shows that CFL bulbs also emit high levels of ultraviolet radiation—specifically, UVC and UVA rays. In fact, the UV rays are so strong that they can actually burn skin and skin cells. Experts say the radiation could initiate cell death and cause skin cancer in its deadliest form—melanoma. In every bulb the researchers [&hellip
