We are under continual attack from electromagnetic fields (EMFs) radiating from power lines, household wiring, microwave ovens, computers, televisions, clock radios, cellular phones, electric blankets, and other appliances. Researchers have correlated electropollution with increases in cancer, birth defects, depression, learning disabilities, chronic fatigue syndrome, Alzheimer’s disease, and sudden infant death syndrome. The danger is real and with increasing use of electricity in our environment it is one of the reasons why many scientists believe some disease rates are on the rise. EMFs are not blocked or weakened by trees, walls, buildings, or other structures. Like X-rays, they pass through these objects and into our bodies—disrupting normal cellular function and biological processes. Our greatest exposure to EMFs come from within our home and offices. All household and office appliances emit EMFs. But you cannot tell which are most dangerous by their size or function. Often the small devices like electric can openers and hair dryers are much more dangerous than the larger ones such as electric ovens or refrigerators. In this book you will find out: • About the dangers you face with EMF exposure • Why certain diseases persist in spite of medical treatment • If microwave ovens are safe or not • What home appliances are the most dangerous • Where we get the most exposure • How to find hidden EMF “hot spots” in our homes This book offers practical ways to protect yourself in your home and office from that effects of electromagnetic radiation. You will learn how to take simple precautionary steps to reduce EMF exposure by as much as 90 percent and virtually eliminate the threat of electropollution on your health. If you use electricity, you need this book!

This reference explores the sources, characteristics, bioeffects, and health hazards of extremely low-frequency (ELF) fields and radio frequency radiation (RFR), analyzing current research as well as the latest epidemiological studies to assess potential risks associated with exposure and to develop effective safety guidelines. Compiles reports and investigations from four decades of study on the effect of nonionizing electromagnetic fields and radiation on human health Summarizing modern engineering approaches to control exposure, Electromagnetic Fields and Radiation discusses: EM interaction mechanisms in biological systems Explorations into the impact of EM fields on free radicals, cells, tissues, organs, whole organisms, and the population Regulatory standards in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia Pacific Evaluation of incident fields from various EM sources Measurement surveys for various sites including power lines, substations, mobile systems, cellular base stations, broadcast antennas, traffic radar devices, heating equipment, and other sources Dosimetry techniques for the determination of internal EM fields Conclusions reached by the Food and Drug Administration, World Health Organization, and other institutions

From the time questions about the impact of wireless technology on public health were first raised in 1993 through the present, Wireless Technology Research, LLC (WTR) has been the largest independent surveillance and research program trying to identify and solve human health problems associated with wireless phones. In 1995 at the University “La Sapienza” of Rome, WTR sponsored the first comprehensive forum for the discussion of these issues. Papers from the 1995 State of the Science Colloquium were collected andpublished in Volume I ofthis series, Wireless Phones andHealth: Scientific Progress. This second volume assembles papers presented at WTR’s Second State of the Science Colloquium in Long Beach, CA, in June 1999; it contains the most comprehensive research on the public health impact of wireless phones to date. The operating words for the proper understanding of these data are science and public health. Science is a tool for making public health decisions, but the framework in which we are operating is truly that of public health. We are looking for problems that have to do with wireless technology. We are trying to decide how this technology impacts on the public for one purpose and one purpose alone, and that purpose is to solve problems that are identified. I would like to challenge you, the reader, to suspend your parochial orientation as you consider these latest findings.
