Electrical Hypersensitivity and the Health Risks of RF Exposure from Antennas

Video presentation of a talk by Magda Havas, Ph.D., professor and environmental scientist, Trent University, Ontario, Canada.

Part 1:


Bio: Magda Havas
"My research deals with the health effects of non-ionizing electromagnetic energy at the extremely low frequency range associated with electricity (60 Hertz) and at the radio frequency range commonly associated with wireless telecommunication.

I am particularly interested in monitoring exposure of the population in urban centres to radio frequency radiation and power-frequency fields. Since children are more sensitive than adults to the potentially harmful effects of EMFs I have been trying to encourage school boards to measure magnetic fields within their schools as part of their health and safety program.

I also provide information to people who are concerned about antennas, power lines or transformers being built near their residence and am currently trying to help with a Private Member's Motion that will establish guidelines and standards that reflect recent scientific studies and will truly protect public health."
