One year ago, 28 February 2013, the Australian Federal Court’s Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAAT) provided the first Australian legal recognition of the detrimental effects on humans of exposure to electromagnetic radiation, and its impact on the estimated 3-6% of the world population who suffer from the condition of Electromagnetic Hyper sensitivity (EHS).
The decision was met with no media fanfare in Australia where the condition is little-known, but one year out, its implications are spreading, like ripples on water, into our Australian community, and around the world.
Dr David McDonald holds multiple post-graduate qualifications, is multilingual, and an award-winning scientist with Australia’s largest research organization, CSIRO. He is an intelligent, fit and healthy man who exercises with unwavering regularity. He also has Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity – he is allergic to the electromagnetic radiation (EMR) emitted by wireless technologies such as smart meters, mobile phones and WIFI. For the 3-6% of the world population with EHS, exposure to EMR triggers symptoms such as nausea, headache, fatigue, pain and weakness, concentration, memory and coordination difficulties, dizziness, numbness, tinnitus, increased blood pressure and pulse, irritability, sleep disruption, thyroid dysfunction, speech difficulties, and in some cases skin burning and blistering.
