Electronic pollution is also known as electromagnetic pollution and can cause health problems. As more and more electronic gadgets are bought, charged and plugged in, the more we are surrounded by electronic pollution. Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS) is a new medical term that is used for people that are known to have health issues from electronic pollution, while others are susceptible to electromagnetic hypersensitivity and don’t realize it.
