Professor Emeritus, Trent University School of the Environment, Peterborough (Canada) - Cochair EMFMC 2021

Magda Havas, PhD, is Professor Emerita at Trent University, School of the Environment in Peterborough, Canada. She is an environmental toxicologist who has studied the effects of chemical pollutants in the environment and more recently the biological effects of electromagnetic frequencies from extremely low frequency electromagnetic fields to ultraviolet radiation. She works with people who have developed electrohypersensitivity and is advising the health care/medical community on how to objectively assess this condition and how to help people heal. She also works on the beneficial effects of pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMF), vibrational therapy and light therapy.

 

The Pre-Conference Prep Course was held October 23-24, 2020. For more information, click here.

Abstract

Electrosmog and Electrotherapeutics 101  

Our exposure to electromagnetic fields/radiation is increasing from a variety of devices, at different frequencies with various modulations and a growing population is experiencing difficulties during exposure.  Health care providers do not learn about the harmful effects of electromagnetic pollution in medical school and so they are not prepared to deal with patients who are electrohypersenstive (EHS) or whose cancer or infertility is associated with electrosmog exposure.  Consequently, they are likely to misdiagnose someone with EHS and related maladies if they are unfamiliar with this issue.  

The EMF Medical Conference 2021 aims to educate and train health practitioners on how to prevent, diagnose and treat the various maladies electrosmog causes.  The electromagnetic spectrum is the foundation for all the presentations on biological responses to electromagnetic frequencies to be given at this conference. Each of the presentations dealing with the biological effects of electromagnetic pollution will assume that the audience has a basic understanding of the electromagnetic spectrum and the various characteristics of that spectrum that have biological significance (i.e. frequency, modulation, wave form, pulsing, units of measurement, windows effects, duty cycle, etc.).   

The purpose of this pre-conference course, entitled “Electrosmog and Electrotherapeutics”, is to provide that basic understanding of the electromagnetic spectrum, anthropogenic sources of electrosmog, and natural sources of electromagnetic frequencies and their role in bio-modulation.  However, not all EM frequencies are harmful.  Indeed, there is a growing interest in frequency therapy that includes pulsed electromagnetic fields and modulate light therapy that is proving to be highly successful around the world where these treatments are practiced.  Some believe that these therapies are the future of health care and so they will be discussed in the 4th and final lecture of this course.
