The Best Way to Educate Yourself About EMFs

As an author of a book on a related subject (magnetic healing), I know firsthand how challenging it is to write in a user-friendly fashion about the complex subject of electromagnetic fields and their effect on health.B. Blake Levitt's extraordinary commitment of time and effort has resulted in a work that makes this complex subject easy to understand. Not only has she succeeded in explaining the untoward health effects of EMFs, but she also gives her readers a look into the complex political and commercial forces that have led to our current state of affairs.Faced with the potential of a cell phone tower being placed directly overhead in my high-rise apartment building, I used Ms. Levitt's book as a study guide and subsequently consulted her for additional background information. I have no doubt that this information was key in holding off the installation of the tower.This book is a "must read" for anyone concerned about EMFs -- and everyone should be!

Technical information made comprehensible

I am a research scientist with a background in psychosocial epidemiology who became interested in the impact of electromagnetic waves on physical, mental and emotional health when I was confronted with applications to construct telecommunications towers in our newly adopted home town. My ideas and information from physics courses were both rusty and dated. Moreover, in postgraduate work I had learned enough about environmental impacts on fetal and child development, neurological functioning, and sleep cycle disruption to be concerned. I wanted to efficiently come up to speed on theories about the waves' effects and peer-reviewed data that tested those theories. Ms. Levitt's book provided an extremely comprehensible and yet responsible orientation to the mechanisms by which electromagnetic waves operate, the research on their impact that was available as of its writing, and the political and economic influences of industry and governmental forces. PLEASE have her update it with the inclusion of the research of the last few years. Solid research findings are supporting her arguments at an escalating rate and they deserve to be disseminated. The public health hazards of unmonitored electromagnetic waves (especially in the rapidly proliferating rf frequencies) are real and an educated public is our best protection against their potential damage.

Empowering insights about EMFs and health

B. Blake Levitt makes the scientific and medical aspects of electromagnetic fields easily accessible to those of us who are not scientists or physicians. Most fascinating was her insightful chapter "What Your Doctor Doesn't Know and Why." She also traces persuasive evidence of links between EMFs and 20th century ailments such as chronic fatigue syndrome, Alzheimer's Disease, and cancer. ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS distills a vast amount of research alerting us to health dangers. It also offers specific suggestions to reduce the impact of EMFs in our homes, workplaces and communities. Our family has become better-informed consumers by relying on this book. Thank you Ms. Levitt for empowering your readers to gain control over an issue with increasing repercussions in all our lives.

demystifying emf

this book is a well-crafted and well-informed, simple and direct introduction to the challenging subject of electromagnetic radiation. It is an important tool for consumers and community activists who want to understand how what we cannot see can and does affect us. The proliferation of "wireless" technology is something that impacts all our lives in many ways; this book is a crucial first step to understanding and questioning these crucial impacts. Charts, illustrations and good, clear writing makes accessible what could be obscure. Thank you B. Blake Levitt!

Help for citizen activists

As a columnist for the Boston Globe and founder of the Marblehead MA Cancer Prevention Project, I have been fighting the placement of cell phone towers in densely populated residential areas.As a former English major, I needed credibility when speaking of highly technical matters. I didn't want to be dismissed as just another hysterical woman. Reading B. Blake Levitt's book not only enabled me to speak intelligently on this subject, it made me 10 times more of an expert than anyone else in the room, including the salesmen for the telecom industry. Her book is easy to follow, energizing, and constructive and I followed it up by reading more recent articles written by Levitt on the Internet. Our group was so well informed, and able to express ourselves so clearly as a result of reading this book that we prevailed in keeping an additional Sprint tower out of town. Levitt writes for the concerned layperson, and although I avoided the physical sciences in college, I was enthralled by Levitt's explanations because the proliferation of electromagnetic fields never before experienced by humans may turn out to be our next public health disaster. Read this for your grandchildren and future generations.Corporate profit is not the only good.
