When the photographer Thomas Ball first heard of the supposed medical condition electrohypersensitivity, he was highly skeptical that people could actually be allergic to radiation from cellphones, WiFi systems, and other devices. People who claim to suffer from electrohypersensitivity experience symptoms ranging from headaches to nausea to heart palpitations that they attribute to electromagnetic fields produced by new technology. After reading more about the subject, Ball began working with a few organizations in the U.K. Hallam, who is 36, began experiencing symptoms 20 years ago that he identified two years ago as attributable toA EHSA . Hallam has insulated his room with metal foil to create a a€?Faraday cage,a€? which keeps out most types of electromagentic radiation. When Hallam created his a€?Faraday cage,a€? he photographed the process so he could share it with others on Electrosensitivity U.K, just one of many support groups dedicated to people who say they have EHS. While the number of purported EHS sufferers in the world is relatively small (the World Health Organization found it to be roughly a few people per million), theya€™ve drummed up enough noise that scientists and medical researchers have conducted numerous studies on the subject. The majority of provocation studies, where participants are exposed to a substance to provoke a response, have found EHS sufferers can't predict the presence of electromagnetic fields with any more accuracy than those without the condition. While many scientists are skeptical, there are some who believe electrohypersensitivity is a real condition.

He suffers from electrohypersensitivity and is on the board of trustees for Radiation Research Trust, which raises awareness of EHS. This isn't a recognized medical condition, and some research suggests the symptoms are psychosomaticA or due to a nocebo effect (meaning they are caused by either a psychological issue or negative expectations,A rather than a physical illness). His family did not believe him, and he was forced to undergo in-patient psychiatric treatment against his will. In addition, studies have shown that symptoms were not correlated with electromagnetic field exposure, according to the World Health Organization. James Rubin of King's College Institute of Psychiatry reviewed studies on the subject and concluded the condition is psychosomatic.
Some, according to Ball, have to live in the countryside to avoid feeling sick from the signals, while others live in the center of London comfortably. As most were jointly funded by telecom companies and the government, they say there is an inherent conflict of interest.


He lives in a house with several flatmates and works shifts that allow him to be in the house when others are not, so their WiFi and cellphones don't affect him. While Ball did not do scientific testing on the sleeping bag, he did find his cellphone lost its signal if he wrapped it in the mesh. While he didn't find any evidence that people faked their symptoms, he also found no uniformity in the type or severity of the symptoms. One schoolteacher he interviewed reported feeling sick the moment she stepped within range of a WiFi router, while many others reported that EHS comes on more gradually, like an allergic reaction. One of Balla€™s subjects, Michelle Berriedale-Johnson, told the Guardian that provocation studies dona€™t pay attention to the way that most people with EHS report being affected. Andrew Marino, a professor at LSU Health Sciences Center, conducted a two-week study focusing on a single sufferer, testing which wavelengths affected her.
