Book Revew: Living Safely with Electromagnetic Radiation

“Living Safely with Electromagnetic Radiation” by Jim Waugh, Castle Mountain Publishing, ISBN 978-0-9865099-0-2

This is a very complete and comprehensive “how-to” guide on the EMR’s that one encounters in life. Complete with extensive references, illustrations, photographs and case studies, you’re equipped and armed with understanding that encourages action. At first, I felt overwhelmed by the depth and breadth and of information; but as my understanding increased, I was grateful to at least know what we are dealing with. In addition to the author doing a wonderful job of scientifically, yet clearly readable terms, explaining in detail the problems, he also offers practical, do-able action steps that we are all capable of. 

  If you prefer the “ostrich head in the sand” approach and hope that everything will be okay, then this is definitely not the book for you. If you are the kind of person who at least wants to know the truth, which positions you in a much greater place of choice, then you will surely enjoy this book.

  After some cursory reading, I opened part one entitled “Gathering the Evidence” and read this:

  “I have no doubt in my mind that at the present time, the greatest polluting element in the earth’s environment is the proliferation of electromagnetic fields.” – Dr. Robert O. Becker, MD, orthopedic surgeon, author, teacher and twice nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize in medicine. 

  At that point, even though we had reduced our household electronic components (and we had previously disconnected our “wireless” internet), I immediately jumped up, unplugged and moved several more items in our office. 

  “Scientists estimate that the levels are now 200 million times higher than they were 100 years ago. To put this in perspective, the price of a quart of milk in 1905 was about seven cents. If the price of milk had increased at the same rate as the level of electromagnetic radiation, we would be paying $14 million for a quart of milk today.” 

  Nicole and I will renew our efforts to improve the safety of our home in this regard.
