4G in Namur: A Hell for the "Electrosensitive"Electrosensitive, Elizabeth had to transform her house to live in it.

NAMUR - After Poximus , it was Namur's turn for Base to install its own 4G network. A boon for techies; a drama for electrosensitives.
Elizabeth Lambert is electrosensitive: Ailments , chronic fatigue, paralysis , headaches, mental confusion, pain in the limbs, and so many other neurological and physical sufferings are the daily lot of people with electrosensitivity. What is that, Electrosensitivity? This is a sensitivity from what is called electrosmog or the electromagnetic pollution.
With the increasing electromagnetic pollution of the common environment, the situation has become unbearable for Elisabeth , both in social and everyday life. "For personal reasons , I had to leave my house three years ago. I rented apartments where I never slept. Within six months , I was sleeping in my car. A car is a Faraday cage and thus protection against the waves . I realized that I was electro-sensitive." Elisabeth then slept in the living room of a friend, surrounded by aluminum plates which she struggles to detach today. "One night I woke up with the feeling that someone was hitting me on the head. It was unbearable . Trying to find out what was going on, I discovered that the DECT (fixed wireless phone ) was still connected. DECT is the worst of all."
Returning to her old home in Malonne , Elisabeth turned her home into a fortress against the waves. "Above the bed , I installed a canopy fabric with copper and silver. Below , a cover connected to a grounded outlet." An Ionizer , mass stove , removing any harmful device biorupteurs , Elizabeth had to make significant changes to simply live in her house. But thanks to drastic measures , Elisabeth can boast of living in a pristine home in the middle of the waves , now called the Sourcerie. "I have guest rooms for people like me who suffer from EHS."
Base : "No Health Effects."Although telephone companies are not the only potential source of electrosmog, they are the main culprit . Listing studies, the Base Company states that "based on current scientific knowledge, it is not possible to say whether exposure to electromagnetic waves emitted by base stations and mobile phones has any negative effect on health."Moreover, Proximus says they were "the first in Belgium to provide information concerning exposure to radio waves emitted by mobile phones." And that "since 2009, most devices in the Proximus collection are also equipped a headset."
On the other hand, Benedict Louppe , an electromagnetic environment and building biology consultant states that "Very practical studies have shown that there is a difference in the results of studies on the influence of the electromagnetic environment depending on the source of funding. A powerful lobby protects telephone companies."
