Are you electromagnetically sensitive? May is a month for spreading awareness about the potentially devastating and debilitating condition, and MCS America has made an incredible Electromagnetic Radiation Event Planning Kit to help you educate your friends, colleagues, family members, and local community. With MCS America’s free awareness materials, even the non-activists among us will find it so effortless to take at least one simple action this month to make a difference for sufferers worldwide.
MCS America founder Lourdes Salvador writes:
Sensitivity to electromagnetic radiation affects 9.8 million men, women, and children of all races in America (Levallois, 2002). Even though sensitivity to electromagnetic radiation is of widespread epidemic prevalence, public awareness of the disabling health effects of common electromagnetic exposures and ways to manage and accommodate sensitivity to electromagnetic radiation remains limited. Electromagnetic Radiation Awareness Month, May 2011, bestows upon us a great opportunity to work towards increased public awareness of sensitivity to electromagnetic radiation.
Organizations around the world have put forth great effort to establish May of each year as Electromagnetic Radiation Awareness Month. Many are working to improve awareness and appropriate healthcare around the world. Activities are organized around the month of May and continue throughout the year. MCS America plays a special role during this time and is committed to promoting awareness of electromagnetic fields which may cause sensitivity to electromagnetic radiation and trigger reactions in those with sensitivity.
This entire month of May is dedicated to planning for individuals and organizations in the U.S. to hold local events during Sensitivity to Electromagnetic Radiation Awareness Month and beyond. You will find numerous ideas for promoting awareness, educating others, increasing recognition, and planning community events. There are many editable sample materials which may be downloaded and used locally.”
The PDF kit includes templates, instructions, and downloadable files. MCS America even offers to help publicize any events you plan on news feeds, blogs, newspapers, their monthly newsletter, and other venues. Submit your event to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you MCS America for making it so easy for the electrically sensitive and their supporters to increase awareness of this condition. With more public awareness and visibility of the harmful effects of EMF radiation, we will hopefully see increased medical and social services, changes in EMF radiation policy, and more compassion for sufferers worldwide.
