I was listening to George Lamb on 6Music on Monday who commented that he had a special matress for shielding him from electrosmog. I don’t know if this was a joke but if it isn’t, that is certainly interesting.

For those who are not aware, electrosmog is the term for all the radiation flying about from electromagnetic fields (EMFs) emitted by computers, mobile phones and other such electronic devices. People suffer from a range of symptoms because of it when they develop a condition known as electrosensitivity. Which is interesting because, it doesn’t exist.

As The Guardian discusses, there have been over 30 scientific studies into electrosensitivity, all of which concluded that there was no such thing. Whatever they are suffering from, it certainly isn’t electrosensitivity, at least as we know it.

Just ask the World Health Organisation. Back in December 2005 they concluded

There is no scientific basis to link ES symptoms to EMF exposure. Further, ES is not a medical diagnosis, nor is it clear that it represents a single medical problem.

It’s almost enough to start another campaign over.
