"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

"This book is a must for anyone concerned with protecting their well-being, that of loved ones, and other species. From the personal, the political, and the planetary, you will never see things the same way again."—B. Blake Levitt, former New York Times contributor and author of Electromagnetic Fields, A Consumer’s Guide to the Issues and How to Protect Ourselves
"The extremely well documented Overpowered reads like an environmental thriller! Dr. Blank does a superb job of explaining the biological effects of cellphones and all things wireless on cell physiology and how to protect ourselves and, most importantly, our children. The sections on electricity, wildlife, and the 'business' of science all demonstrate the dark side of technology–an inconvenient truth we must consider."—Ann Louise Gittleman, Ph.D.
"Martin Blank deals with a difficult subject in a scientifically accurate but easily readable fashion. He covers everything from powerlines, to cell phones, to light bulbs, to conflicts of interest, with humor and passion. In this great scientist, we have an unlikely activist and truth teller."—David O. Carpenter, M.D., Director, Institute for Health and the Environment, University at Albany

The problem is most of us are exposed to these fields 24/7 and with the roll out of 4G to 5G there will be even stronger EMFs to contend with. There is a lot of misleading research by the wireless industry. The US government does not fund research and it's hard for independent researchers to get the funding they need however the evidence has been in since the 1950s and exposure has become exponentially worse since then. Occasional exposure is not an issue for most of us. It's the chronic exposure that causes disease so these studies need to be done over a period of several years to really be effective.
Dr. Martin Blank has been studying the effects of EMFs for 30+ years. His book is well written, easy to read, and is backed up by lots of published research. Do yourself a favor and read this book and then decide if EMFs and radio frequencies (RF) in particular are harmful to your health. And please be aware...they are much worse for babies and children.
There are some practical things that you can do to reduce your risk such as turning off your wifi at night, putting your cell phone in airplane mode when not in use, and avoid fluorescent lights to name a few. Whether you realize it or not you're part of a huge experiment. Humans have never been exposed to these levels of EMFs before. Don't wait for your friends or family to drop dead from cancer or a brain tumor before taking action.
