Are we putting our health at risk by constantly bathing in the electromagnetic radiation of relay antennas, smartphones, wifi and connected objects? The medical and scientific communities is deeply concerned as the number of Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity Syndrome (EHS) is rising steadily among the population. When electrosensitivity cases are brought before justice, victims’ rights are more and more recognized, as in Italy and France. Still, how come representatives of the digital industries set the standards of antenna power themselves? What are the risks for children? How to deal with this problem in clear contradiction with the explosion of digital needs? A troubling survey shot in France, Italy and Switzerland, where parliament declined in a surprise vote – a first in Europe – to power-up its relay antennas.
