    Electromagnetic hypersensitivity: biological effects of dirty
    electricity with emphasis on diabetes and multiple sclerosis.

    "Several case studies and anecdotal reports are presented.
    Graham/Stetzer (GS) filters have been installed in schools with sick
    building syndrome and both staff and students reported improved health
    and more energy.

    The number of students needing inhalers for asthma
    was reduced in one school and student behavior associated with
    ADD/ADHD improved in another school.

    Blood sugar levels for some
    diabetics respond to the amount of dirty electricity in their
    environment. Type 1 diabetics require less insulin and Type 2
    diabetics have lower blood sugar levels in an electromagnetically
    clean environment.

    Individuals diagnosed with multiple sclerosis have
    better balance and fewer tremors. Those requiring a cane walked
    unassisted within a few days to weeks after GS filters were installed
    in their home. "

    Transient electromagnetic fields (dirty electricity), in the kilohertz range on electrical wiring, may be contributing to elevated blood sugar levels among diabetics and pre-diabetics.

    By closely following plasma glucose levels in four Type 1 and Type 2 diabetics, we find that they responded directly to the amount of dirty electricity in their environment.

    In an electromagnetically clean environment, Type 1 diabetics require less insulin and Type 2 diabetics have lower levels of plasma glucose.

    Dirty electricity, generated by electronic equipment and wireless devices, is ubiquitous in the environment.

    Exercise on a treadmill, which produces dirty electricity, increases plasma glucose. These findings may explain why brittle diabetics have difficulty regulating blood sugar.

    Based on estimates of people who suffer from symptoms of electrical hypersensitivity (3-35%), as many as 5-60 million diabetics worldwide may be affected.

    Exposure to electromagnetic pollution in its various forms may account for higher plasma glucose levels and may contribute to the misdiagnosis of diabetes. Reducing exposure to electromagnetic pollution by avoidance or with specially designed GS filters may enable some diabetics to better regulate their blood sugar with less medication and borderline or pre-diabetics to remain non diabetic longer.

    it definitely is something I've always wondered about; and wondered if I slept in one of those 'canopies' that shield one while asleep would make a difference. If they weren't so expensive, it would be worth a try for starters...

    all the best,

    Thank you for sharing this, Tansy.

    it turns out that mold poisons stick to things using physics, so it may take some kind of physics to make them let go. And people with mold poisoning may be affected somehow by electromagnetic fields. So this is great food for thought.
