In a more sensible world, Samuel Milham would be a household name and he would get a Nobel prize for his work. Policymakers would give top priority to ensuring that our methods for generating and using electricity were as safe as they practically could be. In our current world, government and industry leaders ignore the risks related to EMF's as much as possible and plow ahead with increasing our exposure. They show no concern for its impact to human health and how poor health is bankrupting our country. In this and many other ways, the U.S. hurtles toward self-destruction.
Some reviewers have noted that there is little emphasis in this short book on practical ways to address the risks discussed. While true, that is by design. The first step is for people to understand the problems. There are other books which deal with protecting yourself and your family.
Dr Milham is an epidemiologist and mentions early on in the book how he wasn't as interested in finding cures to diseases as he was in finding their causes. At first I wasn't getting him. Then a light bulb went off (really bad choice of words, I know...) when I realized that if disease is preventable then you don't really need a cure at all. If skateboarding on the interstate was the cause of several kids suffering from broken bones then would you try and develop a miracle 'cure' for the busted bones or would you simply sit them down and say "STAY OFF OF THE HIGHWAY YOU MORON"? You get the idea.
Read this book and ZAPPED and save yourself and your family.
In just 2 weeks my massive, four alarm, Robin-Williams-grade ADHD symptoms have started to subside w/o medication. If dirty electricity isn't real then I suppose ADHD isn't real either. Trust me, ADHD is real, just ask any one of my friends.
Again, read this book and ZAPPED and save yourself and your family.
Updated 6-26-2015 - We bought the Stetzerizer meter and filters, and found it took only 9 filters to reduce electrical noise in our 3,000 SF home.
As someone who recently became involved in the business of renewable energy I was particularly keen to learn as much as I could about all aspects of the industry. A colleague referred me to this book. The debates about climate change are raging as I write this review as a new republican president is about to take office. His up coming presidency throws the whole question about fossil fuel versus alternative clean energy into what might be another strangle hold struggle for superiority from what was previously considered a slam dunk in the face of unsurmountable evidence of global warming. That being said this book adds a whole new dimension to the debate currently raging around climate change that both the advocates for and the anti climate change folks need to take seriously.
The writing style of the book is excellent. It is simple to read and moves you a long the story line like a novel. I finished it in a couple of hours - not that I am a speed reader or anything but more likely that it was so illuminating I had to read on. The autobiographical nature combined with clear anecdotes, case studies and insights are a must read. I will be making this a must read and purchasing copies to pass on to friends. It’s a Christmas present for some for sure.
Thank you Dr. Milham for a your tireless efforts over the course of your life. Thank you for my newly discovered knowledge and the power I have to try to make a difference in uncovering the hidden dangers of electro magnetic field exposure. I plan to make educating people about EMF and implementing solutions to this issue a core part of my business. I highly recommend this book!
