The Schiff theorem is revisited in this work and the residual P‐ and T‐odd electron‐nucleus interaction, after the shielding takes effect, is completely specified. An application is made to the electric dipole moments of hydrogen‐like atoms, whose qualitative features and systematics have important implication for realistic paramagnetic atoms.
