Johansson at the Open Mind Conference 2014, Copenhagen.
“Health effects of electromagnetic fields” Olle Johansson is associate professor at the Experimental Dermatology Unit, Department of Neuroscience, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden.
He is a leading
authority in the field of EMF radiation and health effects. He has also been a
professor in basic and clinical neuroscience at the Royal Institute of
Technology in Stockholm.
He has published more than 650 original articles, reviews, book chapters and conference reports within the field of basic and applied neuroscience, dermatoscience and health effects of electromagnetic fields.
His studies have been widely recognised in the media, including newspapers, radio and TV, as well as on the Internet, both nationally and internationally. He has on-going international scientific collaborations with e.g. Japan, Brazil, South Africa, Serbia, Germany, the UK and the USA.
Johansson’s presentation covers the historic background of electricity and
electromagnetic fields, how suspicions arose early on concerning fields and
signals producing negative health effects and how this led to today’s global
public discussion about the subject. It will also touch upon the functional
impairment electro hypersensitivity.
Scientists have researched a number of diseases caused by EMF’s and over the coming years more links between diseases and electromagnetic radiation will be found. The following is an example of diseases whose cause is related to emf.
