Last fall 46-year-old actress, Selma Blair, announced that she was diagnosed with an aggressive form of multiple sclerosis (MS). Despite how much this is affecting her, she has been giving interviews about her struggle.
Many of the symptoms associated with MS are also associated with Electromagnetic Sensitivity. In 2002, the U.S. Access Board recognized electromagnetic sensitivity and that it can be disabling. Dr. Madga Havas has published research about this and she’s not alone. (See 1, 2, 3)
In 2010, experts stated that as many as 1/3 of the population is “sensitive” to sources of “Electrosmog” which includes “Dirty Electricity” as well as cell phone and wireless WiFi radiation.” Exposure has been linked to many other health conditions besides MS. It also affects pets.
Despite all of this, doctors and vets don’t always consider exposure to Electrosmog when diagnosing and treating patients. Exposure is cumulative but obviously not everyone is affected exactly the same way or to the same degree. The same can probably be said about exposure to most toxins.
Over the years, many celebrities and Hollywood activists have been publicly expressing their concerns about exposure to these sources. They have made lifestyle changes to reduce exposure to themselves and their families. Hopefully, someone will extend this information to Ms. Blair. Otherwise she may never know if reducing her exposure will improve her condition.
