|In 2002 the Confederation of British Industry confirmed that workplace absenteeism is costing UK businesses
£10.7 billion a year. The Industrial Society estimates it to be £13 billion. Calculations may vary, but it is clear that
there is a high rate of absence that is mostly attributable to sickness.
Organisations with the worst records have twice the absence rates of the best ones: this may be due to factors
relating to the work involved, but it is also highly possible that the cause is location specific.
The main six causes of absence due to illness are startlingly similar to our list of common symptoms of geopathic
|Modern buildings, especially office blocks, are often constructed in the form of a ‘Faraday cage’ – the steel reinforcing rods, electric cables and water pipes acting as conductors. These metal components can also carry induced currents, thereby transporting electromagnetic fields some distance from their source. Even in traditionally built offices there are computers, file servers, photocopiers, telephone systems, fax machines, printers, alarm systems, and fluorescent lighting with their accompanying transformers. The result is vast and complex electromagnetic fields permanently energised by the mains power.
We know from both published research and practical experience that
people who are geopathically stressed, are considerably more prone
to the detrimental effects of man-made electromagnetic emissions.
To provide a safe working environment, free of geopathic stress,
should be the moral responsibility of employers. Having a healthy,
motivated and focused workforce also has obvious economic benefits.
