Environmental Electromagnetic Field and Chronic Pain Symposium
Saturday, March 18, 2017, 8a to 5pm
University of Texas at Dallas / Naveen Jindal School of Management Building, 800 West Campbell Road, Richardson, TX 75080
Admission is FREE
The University of Texas at Dallas in collaboration with the American Environmental Health Foundation and are sponsoring a one day symposium, free to public to address and discuss EMF and chronic pain.
A group of renowned scientists and community advocates has come together to provide the public with valid and scientifically based information to define and describe the environmental electromagnetic field and the long-term consequences of exposure to EMF. Our vision is to educate the public, healthcare providers and law makers on the long-term consequences of chronic exposure to EMF which spans from chronic pain, to compromised IQ in children, insomnia, fatigue and Fibromyalgia. A recent finding by the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health of the National Institute of Health suggests that about 50 million American adults are grappling with chronic and severe pain. The annual treatment cost of chronic pain has been estimated at $ 635 billion which exceeds the combined cost for treatment of cancer, heart disease and diabetes. The etiology of pain is multi-factorial; however, a substantial body of scientific evidence supports that exposure to EMF affects pain sensitivity and pain inhibition. Most healthcare providers and public are not well informed about the association between EMF exposure and pain sensitivity. The current epidemic of addiction to prescriptive pain killers, including opioids has been partially attributed to our limited understanding of the etiology of chronic pain and the environmental factors that either induce or exacerbate the pain.
