EMF Research

Explore the scientific litereature to fully understand the adverse health effects associated with expsoure to EMFs, such as Radio Frequencies (RF), Magenetic Fields (MF), Electrical Fields (EF) and Dirty Electricity (DE). 

Expert Testimony 

Familiarise yourself with the EMF experts who are leading the way to a safer, healthier and sustainable future by dedicating their professional lives to raising awareness of EMF related risks. 

Dr Charlie Teo

Dr Charlie Teo is an Australian neurosurgeon, Director of Sydney’s Centre for Minimally Invasive Neurosurgery. He is well known throughout the world for his life saving surgeries on tumours that no other surgeon would consider operating on. According to Dr Teo, “If you are exposed to enough EMR, you will get brain cancer”. Dr Teo believes that Australia should take the lead in protecting the population from EMF exposures “we led the world with car seat belts and bike helmets, why not with mobile phones and other EMR technology and services?”

Dr Devra Davis

Dr Devra Davis is an American epidemiologist. She works on disease prevention and environmental health factors.  She was Founding Director of the Center for Environmental Oncology, the first of its kind in the world, and presently acts as President of Environmental Health Trust, a non-profit organization focusing on drawing attention to man-made health threats.  In recent years, her attention has become focused on the health hazards of exposures to man-made sources of electromagnetic radiation, especially those from wireless devices.

Dr Mary Redmayne

Dr Medmayne’s primary research interests and PhD revolve around the effects of permitted exposures to EMF on health, with particular attention to microwaves/radio-frequencies typical of electronic devices and also non-EMF effects on child development, addiction and mental health related to screen-time. Dr Redmayne has published more than 20 publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals and has presented at conferences internationally. She considers there is a real need for policy-makers, parents and professionals who care for children’s health and education to learn enough about transmitting technology to be able to make informed decisions on their and their children’s use of it.

Dr Lenart Hardell

Prof. Lennart Hardell MD, PhD (Sweden) is a specialist oncologist and a cancer epidemiologist at Örebro University. Prof. Hardell has as a long career as a clinical and medical research doctor. He has a focused interest in environmental risk factors for cancer that he has studied in epidemiological investigations. He was a Research fellow at the School of Public Health, University of California, Berkeley, USA in 1985. Over the years Prof. Hardell has been awarded several scientific prizes for his research. In recent years much of Prof. Hardell’s research has focused on the use of mobile phones and cordless phones and the risk of brain tumours. His research has contributed to the cancer classification of different agents such as TCDD, PCB, the herbicide glyphosate, and radiofrequency fields. He has published more than 300 peer-reviewed scientific articles.

Dr Madga Havas

Dr. Havas’s research since the 1990s  is concerned with the biological effects of electromagnetic pollution including radio frequency radiation, electromagnetic fields, dirty electricity, and ground current. She works with diabetics as well as with individuals who have multiple sclerosis, tinnitus, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia and those who are electrically hypersensitive. She also conducts research on sick building syndrome as it relates to power quality in schools. Dr. Havas has taught about electromagnetic pollution in several courses at Trent University  and has supervised Reading Courses and Honours Thesis Projects in this area.  One of the courses deals specifically with the biological effects of electromagnetic fields and electromagnetic radiation.  This is one of the few courses available in North America at a senior undergraduate level critically examining the effects of non-ionizing radiation.

Dr. Erica Mallery-Blythe

Dr. Erica Mallery-Blythe, founder of PHIRE, (Physicians’ Health Initiative for Radiation and Environment). In 2008, she began researching biological effects of non-ionising radiation . This research included copious literature appraisal, conducting her own research via medical histories, medical examinations and provocation testing of those with Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS). She has provided expert witness statements regarding EHS, and been invited to discuss the public health concerns of radiation exposure at the highest political level both here in the UK, and in Europe. She has provided support for schools and parents who require advice to better protect the health of children and information and advice for doctors and their patients.

The Bioiniative Report 

A Rationale for Biologically-based Public Exposure Standards for Electromagnetic Fields (ELF and RF)

“The 2007 BioInitiative Report was prepared by world- recognized experts in science and public health policy. Prepared by 29 authors from ten countries, ten holding medical degrees (MDs), 21 PhDs, and three MsC, MA or MPHs. Among the authors are three former presidents of the Bioelectromagnetics Society, and five full members of BEMS. Outside reviewers also contributed valuable content and perspective. It was concluded even in 2007 that existing public safety limits were inadequate to protect public health, and agreed that new, biologically- based public safety limits were needed five years ago. The public health cost of doing nothing was judged to be unacceptable in 2007.   This did nothing to change the rules, nor roll back the technology tsunami of wireless-everywhere.

The last five years worth of new scientific studies tell us the situation is much worse than in 2007 and yet people around the world have so much more daily exposure than even five years ago. Exposures are linked to a variety of adverse health outcomes that may have significant public health consequences. When added across billions of people world-wide, no argument for the status quo can be persuasive now.


The Oceania Radiofrequency Scientific Advisory Association Inc. 

ORSAA is a not-for-profit organisation of scientists and professionals of various academic disciplines who are interested in the scientific research that investigates the effects of artificial electromagnetic radiation (EMR) on humans, animals and the environment. As the name indicates, ORSAA has a special focus on radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation (RF-EMR) that includes high frequency microwaves widely used for wireless communication and surveillance technologies. However, ORSAA’s interest in biological effects research extends to extremely low frequency (ELF) fields such as those utilized for domestic electrification (power frequencies).

ORSAA’s ethos is to provide an independent perspective on the relevant science and facilitate evidence-based decision making by various stake-holders of modern society including clinicians, educators, safety officers and policy makers on issues regarding exposure to EMR.
