He found that “Reduced cerebral blood flow may possibly result from the influence of electromagnetic waves from IT equipment

A 1998 study by Roger Coghill suggests that 50 Hz electric fields adversely affect human peripheral blood lymphocytes. He went on to note that “a decrease in human peripheral blood lymphocytes could be implicated in the development of CFS“.

Lucinda Grant in the The Electrical Sensitivity Handbook states “Other at-risk groups for developing Electro Sensitivity seem to be chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) patients…. Because the nervous system is a primary site impacted by both chemicals and electromagnetic fields, those with nervous system damage from toxic exposures seem more susceptible to becoming Electro Sensitive too.”  Read the full article
