Introducing Professor Olle Johansson, a neuroscientist, retired from the world-famous Karolinska Institute, and the equally famous Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden, both with their close associations to the Nobel Prizes in Physiology or Medicine, Chemistry and Physics. Professor Olle Johansson was head of The Experimental Dermatology Unit in the Department of Neuroscience at the Karolinska Institute. He is known as a world-leading authority in the field of EMF radiation and its health effects. Among his many achievements he coined the term ”screen dermatitis” which later on was developed into the functional impairment electro-hypersensitivity, a recognition mainly due to his work.
He has published more than 800 original articles, reviews, book chapters and conference reports within the field of basic and applied neuroscience, dermatoscience, epidemiology, and biophysiology. He is one of the highest authorities in the world when it comes to the effects of electromagnetic fields on health with over 45 years of research under his belt.
This was a fascinating interview with Olle, a trailblazing and brave EMF independent scientist. We spoke about the number one threat to mankind – antibiotic resistance and the impact of EMF on our bees, how they keep us alive and why our phones may be slowly killing them, research flaws in the methodology of WiFi safety testing in schools, the research that suggests wearable tech is turning us into a dumbed-down Martians, and why the future of technology rests in the hands of humanity, not the tech companies + more.
2:19 - The top health risks from wireless radiation families need to know about
4:35 - #1 threats to mankind - antibiotic resistance in healthcare
5:00 - What is antibiotic resistance and why it matters?
13:37 - Why measuring the WiFi reading of 20 empty classrooms is absolute madness as the benchmark of safety
17:00 - Having the guts to live in reality, rather that on the internet
23:00 - How safe are our gadgets? Impact of EMF on sperm cells and fertility (by 2050 most men and women will need assisted fertilisation to get pregnant)
29:48 - The impact of EMF on our bee colony is off the charts
35:02 - An optimistic perspective on transhumanism – people don’t want it!
46:11 - Can you see that our bee colonies are disappearing?
53:25 - Results are in, Research shows that wearable tech is dumbing you down.
57:00 - Why replicating studies is required but not happening in the field of EMF
Recommendations from Olle regarding WiFi in schools
"In conclusion, contrary to the assurances implied by Karipidis et al., existing scientific evidence clearly indicates that there are potential health risks for students and staff from microwave RF-EMR exposure levels found at schools from internal and external wireless infrastructure. ARPANSA should immediately recommend that schools use wired Internet instead of WiFi as several responsible government agencies in other parts of the world have already done to reduce exposure of children, a sensitive population that need particular protection."
