Electrohypersensitivity: State-of-the-Art of a Functional Impairment

Department of Neuroscience, Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden
Recently, a new category of persons, claiming to suffer from exposure to
electromagnetic fields, has been described in the literature. In Sweden, electrohypersensitivity (EHS) is an officially fully recognized functional impairment (i.e., it is
not regarded as a disease). Survey studies show that somewhere between 230,000–
290,000 Swedish men and women report a variety of symptoms when being in
contact with electromagnetic field (EMF) sources. The aim of our studies has been
to investigate possible alterations, in the cellular and neuronal systems of these
persons’ skin. As controls, age- and sex-matched persons, without any subjective
or clinical symptoms or dermatological history, served. Immunohistochemistry
using antisera to the previously characterized marker substances of interest has
been utilized. In summary, it is evident from our preliminary data that various
alterations are present in the electrohypersensitive persons’ skin. In view of recent
epidemiological studies, pointing to a correlation between long-term exposure from
power-frequent magnetic fields or microwaves and cancer, our data ought to be
taken seriously and further analyzed.
