    ​European Parliament Workshop

    April 13, 2023

    Another workshop was presented in the Parliament: “Electromagnetic-hyper-sensitivity: The state of science”.

    In Europe there are millions of people suffering from EHS. About 3 million of them are severely affected. What are the latest findings on EHS from Science? How do these researches contribute to the scientific debate on EHS? Which public health and inclusion policy options are preferable to support people with EHS and improve their quality of life?

    These and more questions were discussed on the workshop in Brussels that was hosted by MEP Michele Rivasi (Greens/EFA). Video and all presentations are now published. Be sure to watch it:
