Yesterday in the Daily Mail (surprise surprise!)....there was a story of an EHS woman. She underwent scans during her treatment for cancer and developed extreme ES. All the symptoms are there, and her descriptions of what wi-fi and similar EMRs do to her are spot-on.

The problem is how the Daily Mail have chosen to treat EHS as some kind of incredibly rare and ridiculous freakshow, somehting that hardly anyone suffers from and which "many doctors believe is psychosomatic". Here we go again.

Quotes from the likes of Powerwatch, figures of 3-4% of the UK population affected by ES are slotted in between repeated dismissals and trivialisations of the condition. And, most importantly, the article makes sure that no connection whatsoever is made between this technology and the general public being affected. EHS, if you believe them, is a total rarity and everyone glued to their smartphones and living next to giant mast towers is nothing to do with the subject at all.

Obviously this article has appeared just 2 days after the Telegraph's front page news story about wi-fi being dangerous to ALL of the public for a particular reason. It's deliberate misdirection, yet again.

Here's the full article online:

Don't read the disgusting comments unless you are prepared to be furious at the ill-informed viciousness of an idiotic public.

I've already filed an official complaint over several of the comments, and may even take this further, because I am sick of The Daily Mail's attitude to ES, EHS, Wi-Fi, Masts...you name it. They are clearly in on the deception and misdirection and encourage it; obviously there is enough money in this for them to repeatedly get one of their hack reporters (this guy often covers celebrity and trashy news stories) to do a job on the subject to keep the telecoms people happy.

3-4% is hardly a rarity. 2 million is a lot of people. Damn lies and statistics. When are we going to unite?

I actually like The Daily Mail, it remains independent and the original Telegraph article is far more dismissive of EHS.

The Telegraph must have been more subtle, then. They didn't come right out with the "some doctors believe it is psychosomatic" - which is used as a point of balance for the argument no doubt in their eyes, but is unnecessary when other means of reflecting the condition's controversial status could be used.

The Daily Mail's new-look website is horrific. It looks and reads like The National Enquirer, full of sensationalist, low-rent trash. I thought they are, or were, a serious newspaper.
