BE A TREND-SETTER... for today and all tomorrows

Health, child, and consumer advocates urge attention to personal and public health, hygiene, and well-being in regard to minimizing firsthand and secondhand electromagnetic radiation exposures caused by the emissions from screen and other equipment and devices.

Those emissions penetrate into and biologically affect humans, other animals, and plants.

Those advocates also urge a reality-check: make the choice to immediately start a new trend of wanting to *decrease* both exposures and emissions of electrosmog radiation (instead of the present trend to purposely everywhere increase this pollution and exposures).


Instantly, at this very moment, easy habit preferences of individuals and systems can significantly reduce, or eliminate, these radiation emissions in indoor and outdoor environments—usually at zero cost, requiring only awareness and kindness.

Truly progressive, thoughtful policies and innovation can quickly and significantly address this present flaw in communication, power, and technology products, services, and systems, and can aim to now and always prevent related pollution and health impairments in all populations.


Some suggestions if you want to be even more aware and kind to yourself and others:


About Electrosensitivity
From Canadians For Safe Technology website Q&Ahttp://c4st.org/electrosensitivity/Q1: What is Electro-Sensitivity?
Electromagnetic-Sensitivity (ES) is a condition in which adults and children develop intolerance to radiation from wireless technology devices and infrastructure such as cell phones, Wi-Fi, wireless utility “smart”meters and cell towers and antennas. Once they develop the condition, they experience various symptoms from tingling in the hands and pain in the head when using a cell phone to severe and disabling illness. The most common symptoms are headaches, sleep disturbances, nausea, dizziness, cognitive and memory problems, a racing heart and heart palpitations, burning sensations, nose bleeds and noise or light sensitivities. Recent research suggests that these symptoms indicate severe physiological harm including breakage of the Blood Brain Barrier, damage to the limbic system and the thalamus, oxidative stress, autoimmune damage and neurodegeneration. The prevalence of the condition is growing rapidly, including amongst children. Surveys from a decade ago suggest that 10% of the population already suffers from symptoms. However, this rate is likely understated considering many people who experience symptoms are not aware that their symptoms are caused by wireless devices and in addition, given the exponential increase in the past decade of the use of wireless devices including Wi-Fi and smartphones and increase in the levels of radiation in the environment from the wireless infrastructure, it is likely that the rates of people who suffer from the condition are higher and will continue to rise. While other conditions have been associated with exposure to radiation from wireless technology, such as brain & breast cancer, fertility problems, autism and ADD, it seems that the most widespread manifestation of harm from this technology is ES.

Take One Step at a Time.
It is simpler than it may seem.

Overpowered
The Dangers of Electromagnetic Radiation (EMF)
and What You Can Do about It

About Overpowered

Keys, wallet, cell phone . . . ready to go! Cell phones have become ubiquitous fixtures of twenty-first-century life—suctioned to our ears and stuck in our pockets. Yet, we’ve all heard whispers that these essential little devices give you brain cancer. Many of us are left wondering, as Maureen Dowd recently asked in the New York Times, “Are cells the new cigarettes?” 

Overpowered brings readers, in accessible and fascinating prose, through the science, indicating biological effects resulting from low, non-thermal levels of non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation (levels considered safe by regulatory agencies), coming not only from cell phones, but many other devices we use in our homes and offices every day.

Dr. Blank arms us with the information we need to lobby government and industry to keep ourselves and our families safe.  


Praise

“This book is a must for anyone concerned with protecting their well-being, that of loved ones, and other species. From the personal, the political, and the planetary, you will never see things the same way again.”—B. Blake Levitt, former New York Times contributor and author of Electromagnetic Fields, A Consumer’s Guide to the Issues and How to Protect Ourselves

“The extremely well documented Overpowered reads like an environmental thriller! Dr. Blank does a superb job of explaining the biological effects of cellphones and all things wireless on cell physiology and how to protect ourselves and, most importantly, our children. The sections on electricity, wildlife, and  the ‘business’ of science all demonstrate the dark side of technology–an inconvenient truth we must consider.”—Ann Louise Gittleman, Ph.D.

“Martin Blank deals with a difficult subject in a scientifically accurate but easily readable fashion. He covers everything from powerlines, to cell phones, to light bulbs, to conflicts of interest, with humor and passion. In this great scientist, we have an unlikely activist and truth teller.”—David O. Carpenter, M.D., Director, Institute for Health and the Environment, University at Albany
