What is Health?

A Conversation After Reading An Electronic Silent Spring

Between Reader ZL and Author Katie Singer

Part Two

ZL: I wonder if nutritional approaches might help e-sensitive folks.

KS: I'm not a doctor, but I would bet that eating nutrient-dense food that suits your body type would help everyone.

Personally, I've also found it helpful to keep well hydrated and to decrease sauteed/fried food, since heated oils may encourage inflammation. We still need healthy (unheated) fats of course. In this era of GMOs, pesticides, mercury in fish (and fish oil), antibiotics, sugar, soy, caffeine ETC., knowing what fats and other foods are healthy for your body--and being able to afford them--probably does not come easy.

I would not bet that better nutrition alone could help people who are chronically exposed to EMR from multiple sources starting in utero or childhood. Anyone with a health issue (insomnia, headaches, depression, memory problems, tremors, cancer, autism, addiction, etc.) would be wise to consider nutrition and exposure to EMR, mold, pesticides, asbestos, GMOs and other environmental factors.

KS: Let me to back to your question, Could the suffering ones be helped to become more like the resiient ones?

Essentially, you've focussed on people who identify as "electrically hypersensitive" (EHS).

Studies find that at least 3% of the population identifies as EHS. In the U.S., that's about nine million adults and one million children.

These are significant numbers. But I think that orienting by EHS (especially exclusively) does a great disservice to nature, to all living creatures. People who do not feel immediately disturbed by EMR exposure might think that they can safely use electronics. But every cell in our bodies is affected by EMR exposure. Have you read the studies posted at and DNA, voltage-gated calcium channels, sperm motility and production, the blood-brain barrier, brain glucose metabolism and more are affected by EMR exposure. Increasingly, epidemiological studies show links between cell phone use, cell tower exposure, and cancer, neurological problems and more.
