Electromagnetic Pollution Illnesses Canada Foundation (EPIC)


If you have a health concern, seek assistance from a healthcare professional.

We post often. RIGHT NOW on this page there are two short videos and many informative links to follow. Ways to contact EPIC are near the bottom of this page. And you can see and share updates and gems by visiting our social media pages (clickables for Twitter and instagram are near halfway down this page).

What we do

EPIC is a volunteer-based not-for-profit.

  • We modernize public awareness about everyday “electrosmog” and how to prevent it.
  • Conscious choices reduce emissions, firsthand and secondhand exposures, and related injuries, illnesses, and environmental harms.
  • We promote e-Hygiene, PracticeSafeTech, education, and kindness in creation of healthier indoor and outdoor environments.
  • And we connect persons affected by electrosmog to various resources.

Electromagnetic Pollution

Topics include pollution sources, reducing your electromagnetic footprint, e-hygiene, and more. Help people you care about understand this. Share with your favourite people-friendly and environmentally-minded organizations, to raise their awareness about this significant air quality issue.

  • ESTIMATED 3 to 15 PERCENT OF CANADIANS suffer illness due to electromagnetic pollution. Using the lowest estimate that’s 1,100,000 Canadians.

Canadians have a lot to show and tell about electromagnetic pollution illnesses and firsthand and secondhand exposures to electromagnetic pollution.

Kingston Frontenac Public Library uses this sign.

At home we have hardwired our 5 computers, replaced cordless phones with the corded version, removed the microwave to reduce temptations to use this convenient oven, and purchased a router that has an on/off switch for the Wi-Fi transmitter. Family members are learning to use apps that don’t require wireless connections. The kids have turned Wi-Fi and bluetooth off on their iPod Touch. We have disabled the wireless connection to our Wi-Fi printer, replaced wireless headphones with wired headphones and a 25 foot cord. We got rid of our wireless keyboard and mouse, turned off the wireless on all computers, got rid of my cell phone. Within a week we made many of these changes. This summer we hope to conceal the wiring and find convenient technologies for our children to connect with their friends immediately using safer, wired connections. We now purchase child-friendly products with wired connections (my daughter’s Sony computer with a RJ45 wired network port). ~ name omitted to respect confidentiality

Here is the sign on the outside of our front door. ~ Cary in Toronto

One evening, weeks after we turned off the Wi-Fi in our house, my husband called me from out-of-town. I picked up the phone and felt excruciating head pains. Agitated, I told him my head pain was unbearable and I had to cut our call short and leave the house immediately. He said “Wait! Where are you?” I told him I was in the den. He asked me to tell him the colours of the lights on the box on top of the computer. It was 3 green lights and 1 blue light. He told me to press a specific button. My razor-sharp pain went away immediately! I asked him what I had just [pressed]. He told me it was the router Wi-Fi transmitter. He had purchased a router that has a button to easily turn the Wi-Fi on and off. He showed the kids how to enable it to download to their iPods then turn it off again. I found out that they forgot to turn it off again before I got home. I walked into this situation blind, not aware that Wi-Fi was in use until the head pain began. When I am feeling overloaded I ask strangers to save my spot in line so I can put some distance between me and their wireless device. Most people are courteous. ~ name omitted to respect confidentiality

Environmental electrosmog saturation levels need to be regulated and measured by municipal governments. ~ name omitted to respect confidentiality

Thousands with Electrohypersensitivity, search desperately for any tiny corner of this rapidly shrinking world that isn’t saturated, or scheduled to be saturated, with radio/microwaves. Many people keep moving and try to physically protect themselves with shielding materials. ~ name omitted to respect confidentiality
