Startling Insights Into Connections Between Diabetes and Electromagnetic Fields

If you have diabetes you are not alone. 350 million people globally are projected to have diabetes by 2025. This is up from 30 million in the late 1980s. What is driving it?

The new video by Dr. Magda Havas, PhD of Trent University of Canada outlines startling insights into the connection between diabetes and the growth in electromagnetic fields.  This video is based on a study published by Dr. Havas in Electromagnetic Biology and Medicine (27: 135–146, 2008) called “Dirty Electricity Elevates Blood Sugar Among Electrically Sensitive Diabetics and May Explain Brittle Diabetes.”

Diabetes and Electrosensitivity

One astonishing finding showed that in diabetic patients who exercised by walking outdoors, blood sugar went down as expected, but in those who exercised on a treadmill, impacted by electromagnetic fields, the blood sugar went up. Dr. Havas suggests there may not just be a Type I Diabetes and a Type II Diabetes, but also a new ‘Type III’ Diabetes related to external environmental factors.

Diabetics who are electrically sensitive get increased blood sugar in the presence of electromagnetic fields. Testing for this on a treadmill in the clinical setting can give clinicians an important new piece of clinical information with which to guide treatment. Diabetics who are electrically sensitive should be advised to minimize exposure to electromagnetic fields.

In the United States alone, there are 24 million people with diabetes, accounting for $113 billion dollars in direct medical costs.

Dr. Elbert Huang of the University of Chicago has projected these costs will triple by 2034, straining the viability of Medicare. Huang says: “Diabetes is a major public health problem right now, but it’s important for the country and for policymakers to have an idea of what will happen in the next couple of decades.” If diabetes costs triple they will be $336 billion annually by 2034.

While much emphasis has been placed on dietary and lifestyle changes for diabetics as a way to stem progression of the disease, the electromagnetic field impact until now has been little known and little investigated.

Experts expect research into this frontier may provide very important new information linking the widespread proliferation of electronic and wireless technologies to the unexplained rapid growth in diabetes—and possibly obesity—over the last 20 years.

Dr. Havas is Associate Professor of Environmental and Resource Studies at Trent University in Canada and a leading expert in electromagnetic fields, including ELF Fields, Dirty Electricity, Radio Frequency Radiation, Microwave Radiation, and Ground Current. She is the Co-author of “Public Health SOS: The Shadow Side of the Wireless Revolution” ( with Camilla Rees, Founder of, a primer on electromagnetic fields and health sent to Congress last June.
