I just recently purchased a 2007 Camry Hybrid. I love the car but have noticed that I get headaches when I am driving. I thought I was crazy, but now 2 of my 3 kids have told me they have headaches when they are in the car (without me ever having mentioned it in front of them). Has anyone experienced this?

I bought a Highlander Hybrid and my heart beat became irregular. So much so that it kept me from sleeping at night. I am taking a loss and selling the car. I have a normal healthy heart. I drove it less than a week. I also felt disoriented standing from driving the car.

I also got headaches and my joints ached besides irregular heart beats and a feeling of being off balance on my feet.

EMF is a real concern, as is electrosensitivity. Check out Earthing.com

The symptoms One Heart described are in line with symptoms from EMF.

Yes, EMF can be a concern. Just not in a Prius.

EMF is associated with alternating current.
Hybrids and EVs use direct current to operate.
EMF will not be a concern with direct current vehicles.

Further to the above comment re EMF.
There is no doubt people are at far greater risks of EMF in their own homes than in a car.

Especially those living under or around high voltage power lines.

I bought a used 2008 Prius in Feb 2012, and learned about the EMF issue about 6 months after I purchased it. Freaked out at first, especially since I had just happened to have a blood panel run and it showed that my WBC's were low, seemingly inexplicably......tried to ignore the issue, since the car gets good mileage, etc. Then started to realize in the last month or so that this car is actually burning my foot! Mainly the right foot which touches gas pedal - if I leave my foot near the gas pedal for any length of time, I suffer with burning and feeling of ants crawling up my leg.....even persistent soreness and numbness along the outer edge of my foot.......I have decided that I have had enough and will no longer compromise my health and will be selling this car soon.....currently, I am trying to cope by using the cruise control and lifting my foot away from the gas pedal as much as possible.(BTW, I measured with gauss meter at the pedal area, & it was 3-4 mg) There is obviously something extremely twisted in that the only way you can get decent gas mileage is to sit on top of a large EMF field. I remember having Civics, Corollas, etc in the 70's and 80's that got mileage in the high 40 or even 50 mpg range, and now, it is non-existent. Why is nobody saying anything about this?

I am in the same boat with the Prius purchase and later learning information about the high EMF. I agree 100% that Toyota is guilty of hiding this information and not being transparent about it. While the arguments about the effects of man-made EMF are debated, real health consequences could be happening. One thing is certain, if the EMF rating had been posted in the brochure like the other,'favorable' specifications, I would have purchased something else - like a VW biodiesel.
I tested the VW jetta diesel...it is also VERY high EMF. All new cars are. ALL NEEED TO BE FIXED at the time of building. Apparently this is not that difficult to do. We, the consumer need to demand it.

You can start with a tinfoil hat.
