Without even delving into the science, maternal gut instinct bells were chiming… after reading 'Playing God' the alarm is loud and clear and shouldn’t be ignored.
There is an enormous amount of research that has gone into this book but the author manages to distil and humanise the material by interlacing his personal account of being felled by the radiation pollution sickness with the hard stuff. He lays out in layman’s terms the science behind EMR, the evidence of its effects on our physiology and offers insights into the psycho-spiritual impacts. It’s fascinating, and funny, and it makes a lot of sense.
This isn’t a step-by-step fix-it manual; the author doesn’t claim to have all the answers but he has some simple wisdom about reducing exposures and minimising harm. Moreover, the book made me think long and hard about blindly following along with the societal trend of constantly being plugged in and making better choices for my family.
The only place he was able to function was away from Wi-Fi, cell tower antenna’s and mobile devices. How could he be feeling this way? He began to search for the truth. He started to ask himself, “what don’t the telecom companies and mobile manufacturers want us to know”?
He realized that the adverse health effects of Wi-Fi, mobile devices, and cell towers were not being shared with the public. He realized that microwaves were altering our DNA 24/7. Using himself as the guinea pig, he started to study the effects of electromagnetic radiation. “I documented where I was, when I felt worse and what symptoms I was experiencing.” He substantiated his insights with research and during a two-year period spent heavily on products and mainstream and alternative therapies.
Ben Nowland intermingles a narrative which recounts his personal journey with science. He talks about being a ‘radiation refugee’ and encountering ‘The Hum”, a low frequency vibration which few people hear. The book is split into 6 sections:
Death Towers and Obstacles to Change
Limits, Legals, Lunacy and Lies
The Spiritual Effects of EMR
Our World, our Children
Weapons of Mass Destruction
Radiation Pollution Sickness.
Ben suggests instead of electromagnetic hypersensitivity, we should use the term ‘radiation pollution sickness’ (RPS) because it captures the reality of electromagnetic hypersensitivity as an environmental illness. He suggests that we are more likely to be disposed to RPS if we are one or more of the ‘four E’s’:
Exposed to EMF's
Have repressed emotions
Are exposed to environmental toxins such as mold and chemicals
He explains that the Universe and all within it has an oscillation, a unique signature field and that the body-mind generates a non-linear waveform. The problem is that pulsed man-made EMF's produce a linear waveform. He compares how our body responds to microwave radiation to how we respond to discordant music, except that the consequences are far graver. He speaks of the “possible deleterious effects of microwaves on the hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid axis” which affects the levels of certain hormones.
Is This A Book About Healing?
In the last section of the book Ben talks about his recovery. He talks about the importance of EMF avoidance and detox and suggests that a heavy metal detox and candida cleanse may be beneficial, and that a liver and gall bladder cleanse is also recommended. He suggests that the reader ask some questions, like how can I make the most of this opportunity? What are my glands and organs telling me? He also talks a little about chakra work, giving some exercises to do with the solar plexus and heart chakra.
This is the part of the book that interested me the most, but I’d liked to have seen more of this which is why I consider this book to be more of an account of one man’s journey with EMF's than a book about healing. At the time of writing there is only one other review on Amazon, but it does deserve more interest. By bringing spirituality into the equation this book brings some unique perspectives to the ‘EMF's and health’ issue, and for this reason alone it’s worth reading.

The cigarette parallel is explored. Cigarettes have a control group as there are those who do not smoke. With microwave radiation there is no control group. We are all exposed to varying degrees to Wi-Fi, cell phone and 3G/4G microwave towers.
Playing GOD has 28 chapters. I particularly enjoyed those capturing the author's personal experience and the interesting ideas presented in Chapter 5 Waveforms and Vibrations and later chapters. The larger format of Playing GOD makes it extremely readable. With the inclusion of scientific diagrams and teaching metaphors the author renders heavy physics concepts easily understandable. I highly recommend this book to anyone seeking to make sense of the wide-spread adoption of recent microwave communications technology and their health.
