Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This riveting expose marshalls considerable evidence linking EMFs to cancer and other health risks; features a new introduction by the author.
Copyright 1994 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From Library Journal

Brodeur, a New Yorker writer, documents several cases showing that exposure to electromagnetic fields from electric power lines causes brain cancer, leukemia, tumors, and lymphoma, among other diseases. Unfortunately, many children are affected since power lines are often located near schools. Brodeur reveals how government officials were slow to take action after an Environmental Protection Agency report implicated magnetic fields as the probable cause of illness in an epidemiological study. Utility companies challenged its conclusion by insisting that further research be done to prove the connection. Brodeur convinces readers that industry and government are trying to downplay the situation. His book's only flaw is the lack of a bibliography for those wanting to pursue the subject further. Recommended for public libraries.

This book is written by an MD epidemiologist, and describes in detail what can possibly be called a plague of the 20 century. The information contain in this book is probably suppressed by very powerful pharmaceutical companies, which unfortunately aim at gaining financial profits and not at gradually eliminating possible health complications and diseases.

This is great if you want to get a detailed account on how epidemiology figures what determines a critical area, but it does not cover enough of the what happens and why to avoid. Simply put sure the company that makes your electricity does not want this to get out, it would be the next asbestos crisis. So why not say that and not drag it out with a long book that needs to be read in short spurts so you can stay awake.

This book came on time and was in good condition.
I have not read it so cannot comment on the content.
I bought it for a family member who is in the path of power lines and needed some more information about them.
