How do radio frequency radiation and electromagnetic fields affect human beings?

Project specs




Michael Bevington






All living organisms are sensitive to radio frequency radiation (RFR) and electromagnetic fields (EMFs). Life depends on this sensitivity at the correct intensity. For example, radiation from the sun helps humans make vitamin D, but too much causes cancer. Scientific evidence shows that some people can sense changes in atmospheric electricity like thunderstorms, while 3.6% are sensitive to man-made RFR/EMFs. To protect these people and others from man-made RFR/EMFs, governments must adopt guidelines that include non-thermal effects.

Researcher Profile

The charity Electrosensitivity UK was founded in 2003 to help the growing numbers of people sensitised to radio frequency radiation (RFR) and electromagnetic fields (EMFs) and to inform the public about this danger. The chair of the charity’s trustees, Michael Bevington, has published articles and books on electrosensitivity based on the growing number of studies by scientists around the world. Many aspects of this video are explained in greater detail in his paper ‘Proof of EHS beyond all reasonable doubt’, Reviews on Environmental Health, 2021. Other trustees of the charity with experience of the condition include a NHS doctor and the former CEO of a large food processing company. The charity’s advisers include academics at professorial level and doctors with widespread experience of EHS.
