This guy must live in a barn without any power because the EMF fields he’s claiming about also could be coming from any power source in his home.

Of course my next question is - how does he KNOW his neighbor has this stuff?  Is he using some sort of electronic sniffer to detect it, and if so, then couldn’t that also be the source of his ails?

Geesh.. some people.

I’m sorry, but “EMS” has been proven to be a fraud time and time again.  Dozens of studies from around the globe have shown that there is NO link to the reported symptoms from electromagnetic radiation.  He may genuinely have something wrong with him, but blaming it on EMF is just wrong.

If he can truly sense EMF, then I’ve got a role for him on the next X-Men movie, as a mutant!

This guy’s out to make a quick buck.  Loser.

What a quack.  There are so many weirdos here in Santa Fe.  I feel sorry for his neighbor.

If he really thought he was getting sick, he should move out of the city, and live somewhere remote and off the grid!  He’s a loser.

She ought to try turning everything off and seeing if he still complains.  I’m not original.  It’s what a cell phone company in South Africa did when residents started complaining.

The name calling is unnecessary.  How funortunate that you all have no compassion.  If I carry a cell phone for more than ½ hour, I can barely walk.  I can “feel” which of my neighbors have cable and cell phones.  I can’t live near a power station.  There’s no reason that things can’t be turned off when not in use, especially at night, so he can at least get some sleep.  You can’t get off of the grid, nor should he have to.  Why should he be exiled?  He has done nothing wrong.  Since he likely needs more doctor appointments, Rs’s etc,  than you do, he should be allowed to live near the medical treatment that he needs.  There are more studies proving EMS than not.  Live Green.  Be kind.

I think we all have a lot of compassion.  What we don’t have is sympathy for a misdiagnosis, especially one that blames some woo-woo made-up “disease”.  EMS is *not* real, it’s an impossibility, and anyone who thinks this is the source of their problems—physical problems that may indeed be very real—is not helping themselves.  You’re barking up the wrong tree, and need to find some real help to get to the root of your problem.

There are NO properly performed, double-blind, placebo controlled studies that have reproducibly shown that EMS is real.  NONE.  ZIP.  NADA.  Every study has shown there is no causal link.  Anecdotes and opinions are not studies, and this has nothing to do with “living green”.

“The National Research Council (NRC) spent more than three years reviewing more than 500 scientific studies that had been conducted over a 20-year period and found ‘no conclusive and consistent evidence’ that electromagnetic fields harm humans.” (See first ref below)

Really, if you are experiencing the symptoms you say, you do need help.  Blaming this on EMS is a red herring, lightening your wallet, and leading you further from the truth and a real solution to your ailment.

I really hope that you, and the poor guy in NM, can find the real cause to your problems, but the only way you’ll be able to do it is by forgetting the mystical EMS and getting real help.
