Soundwaves below the 20Hz threshold of human hearing are in the range of infrasonics. Earthquakes, tidal waves and other natural phenomenon produce infrasound frequencies that can be heard by animals, birds and insects. Their disturbed patterns of behaviour can be accurate predictions that seismic activity is occurring in some other part of the world far away from their habitat. Whales use infrasound to communicate over distances exceeding 1,000 kilometres (620 miles) by using a ‘conduit’ or channel where the ocean’s varying temperature layers meet.

The establishment’s reaction is not so surprising since, as will be shown later, similar accusations have been levelled against workers who developed the more serious symptoms of myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME – or chronic fatigue syndrome) as well as repetitive strain injury (RSI), upper limb disorders and chemical and electrical sensitivities. 2 billion a year, mainly through minor illnesses, stress and family duties. 7 per cent of working time. 1 A slightly less biased view was taken in the 1980s after independent research and World Health Organization (WHO) studies suggested that SBS could be traced to the oil crisis ten years earlier when Western governments imposed restrictions on the temperatures normally maintained in air-conditioned buildings.

The manufacturers say that the masks have become so popular that soon they will be commonplace. 5 Negative ion depletion The past decade or so has seen the expansion of high-heat-output electronic and electrical equipment installed in our workplaces and our homes (a computer will generate ten times more heat than a human body). The older air-conditioning systems were designed mainly for people rather than machines, and even the more recent but low-grade systems where the heat load has been underestimated and there is no provision to regulate humidity in the mechanical plant, will produce an over-warm, very dry environment depleted of negative ions and high in static electricity.
