Book Overview

"A fascinating, thoughtful, and accessible account of the emerging field of electromedicine. A timely and eloquent warning on the hazards of electronic pollution."--Jeremy Rifkin, author of The Hydrogen Economy At the same time that exciting insights about electromedicine's powerful ability to use the body's inherent healing abilities are emerging, electromagnetic fields radiating from power lines, radar, microwave ovens, VDTs, satellites, radios,...

Thought provoking

This book, by a prominent medical researcher and practitioner, is one of the most well written and interesting of it's type. In fact, I was unable to put it down once I started reading. Initially interested in possible hazards of electropollution, and also medical uses of electric current, I learned quite a bit from Dr. Becker's book; and I found myself asking more questions, and looking for other sources. Written for the layman, this book is authoritatively referenced with all the professionalism you would expect from a man of the author's caliber. Highly recommended!

Misleading title and cover - amazing book

Others have summarised this astonishing book. It is most unfortunate that the title and cover imply a sensationalist book. It is sensational - but in the sense of new knowledge unknown to most of the Medical fraternity and I write as aa senior MD! This is the most important medical book I have read and I nearly ignored it because of its lurid presentation.

What medicine should have been

and with any luck, will be in the future. Robert Becker is an M.D. and research scientist with impeccable credentials--he discovered the minute electric currents, applied to bone fractures, will heal breaks that weren't knitting (and before his treatment, amputation was the only alternature for non-unions.) As noted below, this book is illumating. The author goes a long way toward finding a scientific basis for acupuncture, homeopathy, and 'faith' healing--at the very least, they involve the electromagnetic field in and around the body. He details the opposition he has encountered through the years from the close-minded, who, through the all-too-human combination of ignorance, arrogance, blindness and politics, have hindered his work (and 'scientists' are always extolling the open-minded superiority of science over all else!) He makes no secret of his disdain for the likes of self-appointed witch-finders like James "the Amazing" Randi. In the last half of the book Becker discusses electropollution, the possible harm it can do to people, and how to reduce or elimate your exposure. An eye-opening book that will be enjoyed by those interested in the failures of modern medicine (and 'failure' is indeed the right word, since the medicine profession has had to admit that doctors are the third leading cause of death in the U.S.)

Making the Connection

This is an illuminating book!If you would like to know the scientific basis for the connection between acupuncture, the ability of salamanders to regenerate limbs, the occurance of remissions in cancer patients, the ability of qigong masters to heal, the extinction of species, the correlation of childhood leukemia with powerline proximity, then get this facinating and well written book by an M.D. who did his own pioneering research that led to a new paradigm for the role of electicity and magnetism in biology. Also, learn what you can do to protect yourself from the everday perils of electropollution.

A must read! Fantastic!!

I have read over 15 books in the realm of magnetic therapy and this is one of the two top books that I enjoyed. Absolutely spellbinding. Get this book!!!!
