"Finally, I have someone to trust and rely on when it comes to all things EMF. Thank you, Nick, for your tireless pursuit of the truth and practical ways to protect ourselves." (Dr. Ben Lynch, Author of four time bestselling book, Dirty Genes)
"I thought this book would be the usual 'cell phones might kill you' story... but it turns out it packs a ton of really good independent, scientific evidence. The Non-Tinfoil Guide to EMFs is probably the best book I've ever read on the topic." (Ben Greenfield)
"I love The Non-Tinfoil Guide To EMFs. It's the most well written, well researched book on the subject. Filled with tons of great research and easy to implement solutions. It's a must read!" (Beth Greer, award-winning journalist and bestselling author, Super Natural Home)
"The best part of Nick's book is revealed in his subtitle: 'How to Fix Our Stupid Use of Technology.' The overarching lesson in The Non-Tinfoil Guide to EMFs is this: What you don't see can make you really sick (and it's not germs!). As the pioneer of the clinical framework of Health Optimization Medicine and Practice, I recommend this book to all of my clients running the gamut of insomnia to loss of woody. Often, the simple act of turning off the household WiFi at night is enough to resolve these. Oxidative stress markers can now be measured, and one can literally see the drop in non-hormetic oxidation levels when clients follow his simple tips for mitigating EMF stress, like putting your phone on airplane mode." (Theodore B. Achacoso, MD)

He seperates EM waves into "RF", "Magnetic", "Electric", and "Dirty Electricity". In reality, RF just means EM waves in a range of frequency, DE means EM waves in a range of frequencies, and Magnetic/Electric are two components of EM waves. Further, he usually doesn't specify the frequencies for the power density, electric fields, or magnetic fields being discussed. It would have been more accurate to classify EM fields into different frequencies and their power density, magnetic field, and electric field.
What bothered me more was his lazy and reckless use of citations. He would often make bold, baseless claims, and then give them a citation as if they a scientific fact. Then, when you click on the citation, you get a broken link, or a random blog url. If you'd want to check his sources for his claims, you'd have to hope the blog is still online, and then sort through hundreds of articles hoping that you can find the claim he's flogging.
Here is an example:
"We are exposed to a lot of EMF radiation from man-made sources -- at levels some say are approximately 10 billion times higher than back in the 1960s"
When you click on the citation, what you get is:
"olgasheean.com, page 5"
If you go to olgasheean.com, there is no "page 5". It is a website with different sections of articles, and no way of easily finding the above claim.
This is very important for a number of reasons. This book is meant as an introduction to what looks to be a very serious issue that many people are skeptical about by default. By failing to properly cite some of his more outrageous claims, or by mixing in third hand testimony from questionable sources, it damages his credibility. It's like saying "aliens killed Kennedy", and then putting the source for this claim as "google.com". Most people are going to roll their eyes and take whatever he says with a grain of salt.
If he really cares about spreading positive awareness on this issue instead of adding to the flames of skepticism, he needs to take his book more seriously. The citations should be link specifically to individual pages (or works, talks, etc) where his claims are clearly visible. They should be properly formatted so someone looking to review them don't have to go on wild goose chases to find them. If he cannot, he should remove them. He should also gain a better understanding of EM waves, as misrepresenting them just makes him look like he doesn't know what he's talking about.
There are some aspects of the book which are good, including the chapter with a list of studies on the topic of EM. But until the author takes his presentation of this topic seriously, I fear this book will do more harm than good on the subject of EM-related health effect awareness.
I have read hundreds of articles and several books on EMFs, and virtually everything I've read has one (or more) of several problems:
1. It cherry picks the science (i.e. only takes the studies that support one's views and leaves out the rest)
2. It is infused with fear mongering and conspiracy-type stuff
3. It's based on anecdotes and speculation, with very little real science
This is the first truly scientific, evidence-based comprehensive guide to understanding the health dangers of EMFs.
And most importantly, it shows you the simple steps you need to take in your life to minimize or eliminate the dangers. The cool part is, these things are really very easy to do. So you don't have to be in fear all the time wearing a tinfoil hat and EMF-blocking clothing, or move to a place in the middle of nowhere to escape EMFs. You can eliminate the risks through just a few simple and easy steps.
Well done, Nick, on producing the best piece of scientific writing on EMFs that I've ever seen!
And to everyone reading, if you are interested in being healthy, do yourself a favor and buy this book right now.
Making changes to a lifestyle centered around electronics is really hard for most people to accept. Everything in this book is correct, just not what people want to hear right now.
suggestions can make a major difference in your health immediately.

The only part of the book that was missing for me was any nutrients recommended to protect against EMF exposure because they do exist, magnesium being one of them. Ironically, the book has an endorsement by Dr Joseph Mercola and Mercola has his own website with many recommendations for a nutrient approach.
