The approach of the book is a successful blend of biographical anecdotes and research findings that only a scientist of Milham's standing-- with over one hundred published papers concentrating on the adverse impacts of manmade electromagnetic radiation exposure on both workers and the general public-- could have written. The style is straightforward, informative and deceptively easy to read. And this is real tribute to the scientist/author successfully tackling a very important and extremely relevant subject that is too often made unclear or over scientifically detailed for the average reader.
As a result, the book lends itself as not only an excellent introductory primer for members of the general public starved for accurate information on this most pressing environmental issue of the day-- that directly relates to the ongoing health problems surrounding the continual saturation of power lines, cell phones, computers and compact fluorescent lights among the population-- but also serves an excellent read for those already grounded in the subject and who are looking to fill in details to be even better informed.
Included among the research highlighted in the book is a brilliant study revealing the development of childhood leukemia in the society, which Milham was able to show as being associated with the increased "electrification" of residences in the United States, beginning around the 1930s and 1940s.
While showcased is a recent study of multiple cancers among a teacher population in a California middle school that Milham was able to link to abnormal electric voltages-- "dirty electricity"-- being emitted in the wall wiring of the school, and serves as a sobering and chilling warning of similar incidences almost certainly being played out and being unreported across the rest of the country.
This highly recommended book should be read by anyone within the U.S., or outside it, who is interested in preserving and protecting his or her health, because it relates to the current health issues surrounding the ever increasing silent and adverse impacts of manmade electromagnetic radiation sources that are, and will continue to be, at the heart of the this and other nations' health debates from this point forward.
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.
