Searching for a Golden Cage – Film

In our increasingly interconnected world, technology feels inescapable. But what if the same devices that are supposed to make our lives easier were actually threatening our health?

A small but growing number of people suffer from electromagnetic hypersensitivity, more commonly known as EHS. The condition causes people to feel sick in the presence of the electromagnetic waves that emanate from virtually all modern electronics.

Anything from a mobile phone tower to a wireless router to a refrigerator can trigger feelings of nausea, dizziness, heart palpitations and even rashes on the skin, according to the World Health Organization. People who say they suffer from EHS can feel sick merely from the presence of a nearby mobile phone. Prominent figures such as Gro Harlem Brundtland, former chair of WHO and prime minister of Norway, say they are electrosensitive.

People with more drastic symptoms have to seek out places far removed from technology. Green Bank, W. Va., for instance, is the location of the U.S. Radio Quiet Zone, a 13,000-square-mile area where many types of electromagnetic signals are banned because they could interfere with the world’s largest steerable radio telescope. It’s become the home of many who have essentially abandoned the modern world. With Wi-Fi and mobile phone coverage spreading further all the time, it may one day be their only place of refuge.

    Something people don’t realise or know about is that they can make life partially comfortable through using/making their own Faraday cage. If building own home then can put this around the house (simple as covering the house in chicken wire or other mesh – the math for size of mesh is avail. online -> deer fencing mesh or smaller (have to make allowances for openings like doors and windows)) or at least make one around their bed or living space large enough to work in.

    Those with smart meters can make a partial cage to cover the meter (as the wall gets in way of making it 360deg) using metal flyscreen and can tether it using tie wire to a tent peg in the earth to ground it. I have found if this doesn’t totally block the signal that it at least dampens it (neighbour’s wifi also has an effect)

    Faraday cage: ˈfarədeɪkeɪdʒ/ ; noun PHYSICS
    an earthed metal screen surrounding a piece of equipment to exclude electrostatic and electromagnetic influences.

      Solutions are one thing Sue, but can be costly and time-consuming….the bottom line being we shouldn’t be forced to go to these lengths in order to live/survive in our own home. There is simply no excuse to install a smart device on ones home as it only serves the greed driven power industry. Say NO to new technology, including iphones etc, as it is robbing you of hard earned $$ with marketing hype and huge profits for global multi-nationals who continue to pollute the planet in the worst way. People so need to wake up and see the bigger picture, take care of this earth…You have been warned!
