Abstract

Started in June 2001, health questionnaires have been distributed to people who complained about health
symptoms, which they associated with exposure to electromagnetic radiation. The objective of the survey was to
gain a better knowledge of the anxieties of the afflicted population, to obtain hints of possible problems and of
actions that should be taken to solve the problems. The survey was not designed to establish a causal association
between exposure to electromagnetic fields and health symptoms. Until March 2002, 342 questionnaires have
been sent back. The average age of the responders was 49.5 years, 59 percent were female. Generally, more than
one health symptom was named. Sleep disorders (59%), headaches (43%), nervousness/distress (20%),
concentration difficulties (18%), and fatigue (16%) were most prevalent. The responders related their symptoms
most frequently to exposure to mobile phone base stations (78%), followed by mobile phones (38%), and power
lines (28%). 87 percent of the people who consulted a public authority due to their symptoms were unsatisfied
with the answers, whereas consultations to self-help groups or building ecologists have mostly fulfilled the
expectations. Two third of the afflicted people had taken steps to reduce their symptoms. The most common step
was reducing the exposure by avoiding the source (if possible) or by shielding.
