Breaking: ELECTROHYPERSENSITIVITY (EHS) -Claimant successfully wins Appeal for Universal Credit on the grounds of Electrohypersensitivity from the UK Government. via EM Radiation Research Trust
Electrohypersensitivity occurs when an individual is sensitised to electromagnetic fields [EMF], wireless radiation, radio and microwave signals/radiation from sources such as mobile phones, WIFI and Telecommunication Masts. Proximity, duration, and frequency being key factors of exposure risk.
The Appeal was held in January 2020.
The Claimant submitted widely collated medical evidence and had the support of her GP and Neurologist.
The Claimant lived in a second-floor flat in London where she encountered a myriad of signals from a multitude of directions, as well as vertically, up through her feet.
She states the collective exposure weakened her receptor and vascular resistance which sent her health spiralling downwards.
It became necessary for her to relocate to accommodation in a rural setting for there to be any hope of recovery.
In 2011 the Council of Europe addressed the issue of Electrohypersensitivity in Resolution 1815.
It decreed that ALARA (As Low As Reasonably Achievable) zones should be set up so that Electrohypersensitive people could have a tolerable environment in which to live and recuperate.
The claimant is supported by the Charity Electrosensitivity UK (ES-UK) who support all people who have been sensitised by electromagnetic fields and radiation. www.es-uk.info
