Refuge from Electromagnetic Pollution (EHS)

Wisdom Quarterly

Going for refuge never sounded so good! Buddhists do not actually go for "refuge" -- even though that is how the word sarana is commonly translated. They go for guidance on the path to enlightenment.

Where can anyone go to avoid being bombarded with cell phone tower emissions, HAARP array pulses, and synthetic electromagnetic energy in general? In the rolling hills of West Virginia, where one can also find the Bhavana Society, there is a refuge.

Some Americans believe continuous electromagnetic radiation is making them physically ill. [Everyone agrees that it is making us ill in other ways.]

As many as five percent of Americans believe they suffer from Electromagnetic Hyper-Sensitivity (EHS). They say exposure to such devices like cell phones, wi-fi, and other electronic equipment is causing severe headaches, skin burning, muscle twitching, and chronic pain.

Diane Schou says she suffers from EHS: "My face turns red, I get a headache, my vision changes, and it hurts to THINK. Last time [I was exposed] I started getting chest pains -- and to me that's becoming life-threatening."

When Diane lived in Iowa, she believed her illness was triggered by emissions from a cell-phone mast [military-owned microwave tower]. She was even forced to live in a specially-adapted cage where electromagnetic radiation could not penetrate.

Her symptoms were so severe she was compelled to move to Green Bank, West Virginia -- a so-called "US Radio Quiet Zone" -- where wireless is prohibited across 13,000 sq miles (33,000 sq km) to prevent transmissions interfering with a number of radio telescopes in the area which listens for extra-terrestrial signals from different places in the universe, reports the BBC.

Some of the telescopes at Green Bank also serve the government's critical spy network, as reported on the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) website. More
