Massachusetts for Safe Technology on June 16 marked World EHS Day: Voices of the Invisible Made Visible. EHS, or electromagnetic sensitivity, is an environmentally induced illness from today’s wireless technology.

Scientists indicate with our growing electrosmog that up to 30% of children and adults (and pets) are experiencing symptoms that often begin with insomnia, headaches, nausea, anxiety, depression or cognitive impairment. Without proper care, understanding and treatment, continued exposure can lead to isolation, social withdrawal, job loss, housing instability, hopelessness, homelessness and suicide.

On this global day of recognition, we listen to the stories of those injured, lift up their voices and provide solutions for creating accessibility and justice for those affected. At last week’s event, Courtney Gilardi of Pittsfield celebrated the strength and resilience of the EHS community, and CeceDoucette, director of Massachusetts for Safe Technology, shared resources for those with electromagnetic illnesses and their loved ones, health care teams, municipal leaders, schools and legislators.

The French association, Coures’ de EHS (Hearts of EHS), founded by Magali Lesure in 2017, has promoted World EHS Day as a way to support those with electromagnetic sensitivity, create allies for those impacted, and to recognize those who are missing from society due to EHS.
