Magda Havas, PhD

Magda Havas, PhD is Professor Emerita at Trent School of the Environment at Trent University in Peterborough, Canada.  She does research on the biological effects of electromagnetic pollution and on the beneficial effects of electrotherapies. She is also Founder and Coordinator of the Global EMF Monitoring Program that consists of several hundred volunteers who are monitoring radio frequency radiation in their environment as part of a global citizen scientist venture.

Dr. Havas received her PhD at the University of Toronto and did postdoctoral research at Cornell University before returning to Canada.  From 1975 to 2000, Dr. Havas’ research involved studying the biological effects of acid rain and metal pollution. During that time, she was a member of the Great Lakes Science Advisory Board Workgroup on Emerging Issues, International Joint Commission (Canada/US).

In 1995, Dr. Havas became interested in the biological effects of electromagnetic pollution and now works with people who are suffering with chronic illness, including electrohypersensitivity (EHS), diabetes, multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and arthritis as they relate to electrosmog exposure.  Her research involves determining how to diagnose EHS and how to help people with EHS recover.  She also studies the beneficial effects of frequency therapy (PEMF and light).

Dr. Havas has edited 3 books and authored more than 200 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 gave two lectures at the EMF Medical Conference 2019 held in Santa Cruz, California.  She provided a pre-conference course to doctors in October 2020, and she co-chaired the EMF Medical Conference 2021 held virtually in 2021.
