Dr. Gro Harlem Brundtland – electromagnetic sensitivity


A few months ago I bought Arthur Firstenberg’s book: “The Invisible Rainbow, a History about Electricity and Life.” As usual when starting to read a book I test the book on atmosphere, readability, how the words are chosen. When starting to read the prologue, I was so impressed about what I read, how words were chosen, that I wanted to read the words, aloud, to a friend. When I was doing that I was not prepared on the impact of this reading aloud, on my self: I got moved, and could not continue speaking. Tears were running. The beauty was enormous, and intense. This created the wish to publish the prologue in a short video, soon, in which I will read the prologue aloud, in my way, without any hurry, to all who want the hear it. Arthur Firstenberg gave me the permission for it. The text will be subtitled, because my English is not really English, but a mix of the sound of Dutch in an English text. But I will read it with awareness.

When going through the book, for some short impressions, I stuck on the page with a photo, and a Norwegian name:

Gro Harlem Brundtland

Gro Harlem Brundtland, former Director-General of the World Health Organization and a former Prime Minister of Norway   

She suffers from headaches when someone with a cell phone is near. She did not mind to ask cell phone users to turn off the cell phone before entering her room. Her openness about it had unfortunately negative consequences.


The Invisible Rainbow
Page 367 – 368
Paragraph 2 – 3 – 4
17. In the Land of the Blind


“How many will it take before people no longer feel too alone to say, “Your cell phone is killing me” instead of “I’m electrically sensitive”? A tremendous number of people get headaches from their cell phone. Almost one-quarter of Norwegians who would now be considered moderate cell phone users (more than one hour per day) admitted it to the scientists who asked the question in 1996.[1] Almost two thirds of Ukrainian university students who were heavy cell phone users (more than three hours per day) admitted it to the scientists who asked the question in 2010.[2] Perhaps there are some who really don’t get headaches, but few people are asking the question, and to publicly admit to the true answer is not socially acceptable.

Gro Harlem Brundtland got headaches from cell phones. And since she was the Director-General of the World Health Organization and the former Prime Minister of Norway, she did not feel the need to apologize for it, and simply ordered that no one was to enter her office in Geneva carrying a cell phone on their person. She even gave an interview about it in 2002 to a Norwegian national newspaper.[3] The following year she was no longer Director-General of the World Health Organization. No other public officials have repeated her mistake.”
