MCS America's Electromagnetic Radiation Awareness Month Event Planning KitAre 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

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.

  • Earthwalker is the username that PT founder Julie Genser created for her online interactions so many years ago when first creating Planet Thrive.

    Julie's (Earthwalker's) life was derailed over twenty years ago when she had a very large organic mercury exposure after she naively used a mouth thermometer to measure the temperature of just-boiled milk while making her very first pizza at home. The mercury instantly expanded into a gas form and exploded out the back of the thermometer right into her face. Unaware that mercury was the third most neurotoxic element on Earth, Julie had no idea she had just received a very high dose of a poisonous substance.

    A series of subsequent toxic exposures over the next few years -- to smoke from two fires (including 9/11), toxic mold, lyme disease, and chemical injuries -- caused catastrophic damage to her health. While figuring out how to survive day-to-day, and often minute-to-minute, she created Planet Thrive to help others avoid some of the misdiagnoses and struggles she had experienced.

    She has clawed her way over many health mountains to get to where she is today. She is excited to bring the latest iteration of Planet Thrive to the chronic illness community.

    In 2019, Julie published her very first cookbook e-book called Low Lectin Lunches (+ Dinners, Too!) after discovering how a low lectin, gluten free diet was helping manage her chronic fascia/muscle pain.

    Thank you for helping spread awareness about this important issue! I’m glad it’s Electromagnetic Radiation Awareness month and not EMR Sensitivity Awareness month. That’s because we all need to be aware of the danger of EMR. I hired a master electrician to go through my house and measure the radiation levels of various household products. The results were shocking. I videotaped the whole thing and included free solutions to help protect yourself and your loved ones. You can watch it here: http://www.YourEnergyMatters.radiation.asp.
