It is estimated that the number of people suffering from the deluge of electrosmog in the UK number ranges between 2.5 to 6.3 million (which is more than the number of UK wheelchair users). Given the number of people who have mild EHS symptoms, but have not linked them yet to exposure, this estimate is probably on the low side as it can be very difficult for people to make the association.
It is thought many children are currently affected, but remain undiagnosed. Children are likely to be more vulnerable to developing EHS since their exposure is higher. Potentially, the outcomes of exposure may be worse as their bodies are still developing. Brain tumours have overtaken leukaemia as a leading cause of death in children (both are associated with EMF exposure). Even more frighteningly, some evidence suggests that genetic damage caused by exposure within current guidelines may not only damage the exposed child, but could also damage their offspring.
Other vulnerable groups include the elderly, pregnant women, foetuses and those with concurrent illnesses.
