Then the book goes into detail on the experiments and research that the authors did in the field of regeneration and how it is affected by differences in electric current - strength and polarity - as well as magnetism. (Although the book does not go into deep medical or electrical aspects of the research, it is not a quick and easy read if you go through Dr. Becker's steps in their experiments.)
Typically, the scientific and medical communities, which should be open and receptive to any new theories, are the first to denounce and ridicule them. What's even more interesting is that a lot of these studies were initiated quite a long time ago in other countries that are more open to new concepts. With so much riding on these possibilities or human regeneration, it seems absurd that the people who control funding of research projects would be so narrow minded and political.
In the latter part of the book, Becker goes into the electromagnetic interference that we are now subject to, and its adverse effects on living things.
The book is definitely worth reading, especially when Dr. Becker and his colleagues start using some of their discoveries to help heal patients in situations made hopeless by allopathic medicine.
