Amelia Hill, former feature writer for national magazines such as House & Garden and Real Living Magazine, is allergic to the 21st century and is virtually living inside a bubble in her parents’ home. Amelia not only suffers from electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS), but also multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS). These two sensitivities often go hand in hand, giving the sufferer a double whammy. The sufferer is left unable to cope with not only electromagnetic radiation, but also various chemicals which may be present in items such as a toothpaste, clothing and vehicle exhaust fumes. Symptoms of EHS often appear at a different time to MCS.
Despite people like Amelia suffering from EHS, power distributors and the Victorian Government continue to claim that people do not suffer from electromagnetic hypersensitivity – it is merely a figment of the imagination!
