“Our bodies, our Wi-Fi routers”

I don’t make this stuff up, I just pass it along …

A psychotherapist, Chellis Glendinning, offers her opinions about the validity of and threat of technology to the “electrically-sensitive” in this op-ed in the January 17th Santa Fe New Mexican: Our bodies, our Wi-Fi routers.

Interesting excerpt that is oh-so-typical of this ilk’s thought process and public manipulations:

 It strikes me that, as more WiMAX, smart meters and smartphones blanket us with more EMF, more people are experiencing untoward effects — without knowing why. Here are some of the symptoms:

  1. A sense of pressure on the chest, a grip-like clench about the heart
  2. Overstimulation of the nervous system leading to anxiety, sleeplessness, heart arrhythmia — or the opposite: depression, sluggishness, fatigue
  3. Headaches, loss of memory, “brain fog,” dizziness
  4. Flashes of light in the eyes, black floaters that appear like spider webs, insect legs, specks, etc.
  5. Ringing in the ears, hearing loss
  6. Hormonal imbalances, menstrual disorders
  7. Reduced immune functioning — with greater susceptibility to colds, allergies, influenza, etc.

Only space limits the number of “symptoms” that have been attributed to electrical sensitivities. As I noted earlier, virtually every typical human malady has been claimed by someone concerned about everyday levels of electromagnetic radiation, including (but not limited to):

headaches, dizziness, nausea, difficulty concentrating, memory loss, irritability, depression, anxiety, insomnia, fatigue, weakness, tremors, muscle spasms, numbness, tingling, altered reflexes, muscle and joint pain, leg/foot pain, flu-like symptoms, fever. More severe reactions can include seizures, paralysis, psychosis and stroke; Cardiac: palpitations, arrhythmias, pain or pressure in the chest, low or high blood pressure, slow or fast heart rate, shortness of breath; sinusitis, bronchitis, pneumonia, and asthma; skin rash, itching, burning, and facial flushing; pain or burning in the eyes, pressure in/behind the eyes, deteriorating vision, floaters, and cataracts; digestive problems; abdominal pain; enlarged thyroid, testicular/ovarian pain; dryness of lips, tongue, mouth, eyes; great thirst; dehydration; nosebleeds, internal bleeding; altered sugar metabolism; immune abnormalities; redistribution of metals within the body; hair loss; pain in the teeth; deteriorating fillings; impaired sense of smell; ringing in the ears.
