"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

He begins with a discussion of electromagnetic radiation - how it works, the surprising proximity of sources (look up and see the wires overhead, the light bulbs, the microwave ovens, the extension cords, the televisions, computers, etc), and now the plethora of wireless devices that depend on their function from those EM forces filling the air (otherwise we would not be able to use cell phones, wi-fi images, stored songs) exacerbating the dangers.
Tests have been done to show that such electromagnetic radiation causes cancer, brain damage (think Alzheimer's and Lou Gehrig's diseases), infertility, and who can even imagine how much else to the environment (bees, trees, foods, etc). Knowing that the big corporate producers of the ever-expanding wireless devices are not about to let anyone rain on their parade, Dr.Read more ›
"Overpowered" is the opposite of a Luddite screed. Rather, it is the thoughtful perspective of a respected lifelong professional at the top of his game, still enthralled with the science that captured his imagination as a young scientist. But Dr. Blank understands only too well the implications of our unfettered embrace of technology as he carefully takes the reader through the science in comprehensive, comprehensible ways, leading to intelligent solutions to cut down exposures. He articulates the 'why' as well as the 'what.' Dr. Blank does not shy away from the politics, either. In fact, he has spent much of his career on the frontlines of it.
The book is also a plain, old fashioned 'good read' for professionals and lay readers alike. If you are a healthcare provider wondering why clients increasingly report amorphous life-diminishing symptoms, or someone experiencing such symptoms yourself, or a parent wondering why a child comes home with headaches after being in wifi'ed classrooms, this is the book for you. Of the several books out there on this subject today, "Overpowered" has the best bang-for-the-buck, packed in a relatively slim volume.Read more ›
