Dear Professor Wallberg-Henriksson


Urgent funding request for Professor Olle Johansson to continue important work into electro-magnetic fields and human health risks. 

I recently telephoned Professor Olle Johansson to follow up on any further developments with his brilliant research.  I was shocked and horrified to discover Professor Johansson has NO further funding to continue with this important work.  I am begging you to please release desperately needed funds for Professor Olle Johansson as he has gained trust and respect from the many people campaigning for health problems associated with EMFs.  Urgent funding needs to be given to trusted and respected scientists such as Professor Johansson; after all he will be remembered in history along with the Karolinska Institute for this important work and for leading the way.  We owe a debt of gratitude to him for his continued dedication and commitment researching this serious issue with the limited funds available.


I have campaigned against mobile phone masts and base stations since developing breast cancer over 5 years ago at the age of 38. I now realise that I suffer with electro-sensitive symptoms when near phone masts or DECT phones. I had been suffering for years with sleep problems, dizzy spells, skin rashes, low immunity problems and headaches without knowing about the dangers associated with phone masts.  My son also suffered with nose bleeds almost every night. We had been living 100 metres from a 22.5 metre phone mast for over seven years, I now live in a cancer cluster in the tiny village of Wishaw, which is one of many we have since discovered around phone masts after long term exposure. Unfortunately some of my friends and neighbours have not been as lucky and some have since died, one of our dear neighbours died from motor neurone disease in his early 50’s, this rare and devastating illness also seems to be associated with electro-magnetic fields.

Thankfully the mast was removed three years ago and the community has since returned to good health. 


I am now a trustee for the EM Radiation Research Trust and also a member of the EMF Discussion Group which is chaired by Sir William Stewart, Chairman for the Health Protection Agency, UK (HPA) the HPA are advisors to the UK Government.

Please see enclosed link with regards to minutes taken at our first meeting earlier this year.


Sir William Stewart has made it clear on many occasions that we should continue to support the Precautionary approach.


I have presented on this issue at Westminster on many occasions. I also attended the European Parliament and met with Director Generals along with Radiation Research Trust Chairman - Mike Bell, Professor Olle Johansson, Dr Gerd Oberfeld, Salzburg Government Advisor and Dr Caroline Lucas Green Party MEP.


I attended the Benevento Conference in February 2006, take a look at the impressive list of scientists who have signed the Benevento Resolution which is now available online  This important resolution includes Professor Olle Johansson.  I’m sure you will agree that Sweden and people suffering with the condition known as EHS throughout the world owe a debt of gratitude to the many independent scientists included on this list.  However, a very special thank you should be given to Professor Olle Johansson for leading the way and creating awareness throughout the world through his determination and total dedication to this very serious issue. I along with the many campaigners, doctors and scientists believe the time has now come to address this issue with full commitment and honesty.


The work of Professor Johansson is often quoted by authorities throughout the world and within the UK Parliament.  I have received an invitation to present on this issue at our next meeting at the next EMF Discussion Group meeting at the Health Protection Agency in London on 16th October, 2006. I will most certainly be recommending we follow the standards set out in Sweden with regards to protecting the health of vulnerable people.


Thank you for taking time to read this information and please find enclosed further details with regards to the campaign.

Yours sincerely

In the words of Dr Robert O. Becker – twice nominated for the Nobel Prize


“I have no doubt in my mind that at the present time, the greatest polluting element in the earth’s environment is the proliferation of electromagnetic fields.  I consider that to be far greater on a global scale, than warming, and the increase in chemical elements in the environment.’’
