October proclaimed EHS Awareness Month in Newfoundland
Tuesday 20 October 2009
MAYOR FRED BUDGELL PROCLAIMS OCTOBER 2009 AS ELECTROMAGNETIC HYPERSENSITIVITY AWARENESS MONTH
By Christiane Tourtet B.A.
Fred Budgell, Mayor of the Town of Norris Arm, Newfoundland, Canada, has proclaimed October 2009 as Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity Awareness Month. This is the third proclamation in Canada (the first one was signed by David Saunders, the Mayor of the City of Colwood, B.C. and the second one was done by Dennis O'Keefe, Mayor of St Johns in Newfoundland).
Canada, thus, joins other countries, such as in the USA, where one Mayor and three Governors, have signed proclamations for the recognition of this devastating environmental illness, which is the direct result of worldwide electromagnetic pollution.
In the proclamation it is stated that, people of all ages in Norris Arm and through the world have developed the illness of Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EMHS) as a result of global electromagnetic pollution, and that Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity, is a painful chronic illness of hypersensitive reactions to electromagnetic radiations for which there is not known cure, and that the symptoms of Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity, include dermal changes, acute numbness and tingling, dermatitis, flushing, headaches, arrhythmia, muscular weakness, tinnitus, malaise, gastric problems, nausea, visual disturbances, severe neurological, respiratory, speech, problems, and numerous other physiological symptoms and often develop into Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS).
It is also stated in the proclamation, that Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity is recognized by the Canadian Human Rights Commission, The Canadian Government as an Environmental Disability, The Americans with Disabilities Act, and many other
National and International commissions, and that, power lines and transformers generate electromagnetic fields and may be contributing to electrical sensitivity and to other illnesses, such as cancers, and that the illness may be preventable through the reduction or avoidance of electromagnetic radiations in both indoor and outdoor environments and by further medical research,
