Magda Havas, BSc, PhD
Magda Havas is Professor Emeritus at Trent School of the Environment and Centre for Health Studies at Trent University in Peterborough, Canada. She does research on the biological effects of electromagnetic pollution and on the beneficial effects of electrotherapies. Dr. Havas received her PhD at the University of Toronto and did postdoctoral research at Cornell before returning to Canada. She works with people who are suffering with chronic illness including diabetes, multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and arthritis and with those who have developed electro-hyper-sensitivity (EHS). Her latest research links microwave radiation from wireless phones to heart irregularities including arrhythmia and tachycardia.
Dr. Havas has edited 3 books and authored more than 185 publications. She is co-author of Public Health SOS: The Shadow Side of the Wireless Revolution. Dr. Havas is internationally recognized, both for her previous work on acid rain and metal pollution and for her current research in the area of electromagnetic pollution and electromagnetic therapy. Since 2000, Dr. Havas has given more than 300 lectures in 30 countries and at 24 universities. She is increasingly being invited to give talks at medical and health conferences on the beneficial effects of frequency therapy and on the health effects of electromagnetic pollution. These “newer” modalities of frequency therapy are commonly used in Europe and elsewhere but are not well recognized in North America. They have the potential to improve the quality of life for those who are chronically ill, revolutionize health care and significantly reduce health care costs.
Dr. Havas has provided expert testimony in Canada, U.S., U.K., South Africa, and the Philippines on the health effects of power lines, occupational magnetic field exposure and radio frequency radiation. She serves/served as a science advisor to various government and non-government organizations in Canada and internationally including but not limited to the EMR Policy Institute (U.S.), International Association of Fire Fighters (Canada/U.S./Mexico), Canadians for Safe Technology (C4ST), Great Lakes Science Advisory Board Workgroup on Emerging Issues, International Joint Commission (Canada/U.S.), and the Canadian Broadcast Corporation (CBC). She helped draft the International EMF Scientist Appeal signed by 220 scientists and medical doctors from more than 40 countries that was submitted to the UN and WHO in 2015 (see emfscientist.org). Her previous work on air pollution helped bring in clean air legislation (Canada/U.S.) and she hopes that her current work on electrosmog will do the same.

Olle Johansson PhD
Olle Johansson PhD is a global authority in the field of EMF radiation and health effects. He originally coined the term ”screen dermatitis” which became recognized as the functional impairment known as electrohypersensitivity. Survey studies show that somewhere between 230,000-290,000 Swedish men and women—out of a population of 10,000,000—report a variety of symtoms when in contact with electromagnetic field sources. In 2000, the diagnosis of electrosensitivity was officially recognized by the Swedish government as a disability which may interfere with daily functioning and qualifies for both medical care and the provision of an electrosmog-free working environment.
He is a past associate professor at the Karolinska Institute, Department of Neuroscience, and head of The Experimental Dermatology Unit as well as a guest and adjunct professor in basic and clinical neuroscience at the Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm. He has published more than 600 original articles, reviews, book chapters and conference reports within the fields of basic and applied neuroscience, dermatology, epidemiology, and biophysiology.

Dominique Belpomme PhD MD
Dr. Dominique Belpomme is a professor of oncology at Paris-Descartes University and president of the French Association for Research on Treatment Against Cancer (ARTAC). Author of numerous scientific papers, he is known for his work on links between environmental degradation and the origins of disease. He also heads the European Cancer and Environment Research Institute (ECERI).
Since 2008, Dr. Belpomme's medical team has studied many hundreds of European patients who suffer from electromagnetic intolerance syndrome. The team has developed EHS diagnostic methods based on blood tests and special brain scans (pulsed Doppler echography). Their research shows multiple abnormalities in blood and tissue. At least 30% of EHS sufferers have high levels of histamine, indicating severe allergic reactions. Fifty percent show excessive stress proteins, 30% have levels of antibodies and proteins that are telltale signs of both thermal shock and even possible brain damage in the areas where Alzheimer’s starts. Most have low levels of melatonin (a crucial anti-cancer hormone).

She has lectured on Environmental Medicine in the areas of indoor/outdoor air quality, avoiding pollutants in air, food and water, evaluation and treatment of electromagnetic field sensitivity, and on preparing antigens for provocation/neutralization immunotherapy. Dr. McCarter has been acknowledged for her work on Dr. Rea’s book, “Reversibility of Chronic Degenerative Disease and Hypersensitivity”, Vol. 1. She has extensive experience with electromagnetic sensitivity, lecturing on the subject at the University of Texas Dallas in March of 2017, the American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) basic course in Dallas in January of 2016, the AAEM Spring conference in April, 2015 and the 25th and 28th Annual International Symposiums on “Man and His Environment in Health and Disease”
Dr. McCarter is board certified in Internal Medicine and a member of the American College of Physicians and the Alpha Omega Alpha medical society. She graduated from Indiana University School of Medicine in 1993 and from Pepperdine University in 1989.
She is the only certified practitioner in Texas in Neurolink Treatment having trained with the Master’s Courses. Neurolink uses a Neurological Integration System (NIS) for treatment of symptoms and complaints. NIS uses muscle testing of Chinese pulse points to identify incongruence of signals between the brain and the body that are affecting control in one or more of four areas of the body: physiological, neurological, pathological and emotional. NIS then helps to facilitate the brain to reset these disconnected signals.
Recently Dr. McCarter also began working and training in the field of LDA (low dose antigen) and LDI (low dose immunotherapy) with Dr. Charles Hamel in Arlington, TX. Dr McCarter believes that the body is an energetically open system that is exchanging energy and materials with its surrounding environment and must be treated as such to achieve total wellness. She strongly believes such treatment should be of the whole body, mind, and spirit.
