An Electronic Silent Spring Facing the Dangers and Creating Safe Limits by Katie Singer

Over millions of years, living creatures have evolved in relation to the Earth's electromagnetic energy. Now, we're surrounded by human-made frequencies that challenge our health and survival. An Electric Silent Spring reports the effects of electrification and wireless devices on people, plants, bee colonies, and frogs around the globe. It presents solutions for people who want to reduce their exposure to electromagnetic radiation. This pioneering book is for anyone concerned about the health of the environment and the people and other creatures that inhabit it. Paperback, 310 pages, 2014

Architectural EM Shielding Handbook A Design & Specification Guide by Leland Hemming

This practical handbook is a one-stop source for all sorts of shielding enclosures designed to prevent electromagnetic interference from reaching either a sensitive piece of equipment or an unauthorized agency. Includes: extensive supporting information on penetrations such as doors, vents, piping, and electromagnetic filters for each type of shielding; design checklists for shielded enclosure installation; performance specifications for various materials and structural components; methods for the testing necessary to prove performance; and so much more! Excellent illustrations. This is a "must have" if you are shielding RF. Softcover, 222 Pages, 1992.

NIST Construction Automation Program Report No. 3

NIST REport #3 Laboratory studies of electromagnetic (EM) signal propagation through construction materials were carried out as part of the NIST initiative. In this report, power attenuation aspects are discussed. The materials investigated included brick, masonry block, eight different concrete mixes, glass, plywood, lumber (spruce-pine-fir), drywall, reinforced concrete, steel reinforcing bar grids, variations of the plywood and lumber tests in which the specimens were soaked with water, and composite specimens involving brick-faced masonry block and brick-faced concrete. For each material, varying thickness specimens were fabricated in order to measure attenuation as a function of penetration distance. Measurements of power loss were taken at 2 MHz intervals from 0.5 to 2 GHz and from 3 to 8 GHz. Frequency power spectra were discretely generated for each material as a function of thickness. Excellent tables and graphical data. Extremely useful for predicting the shielding effectiveness of common building materials. 200 pages, 1997.

EMF Health Alert


by Holly Manion and Alfred Pacheco

EMF Health Alert is a reader friendly, easy to follow, “how to” guide, on eliminating the harmful electro-magnetic fields (EMF) from wired and wireless devices in your home and workspace to create a healthier living environment. In today’s age of digital technology, we are constantly connected through our wireless devices to a world we cannot see, hear, or touch. We rely on cellphones, computers, tablets, IPads and many other electronic devices to get us through our daily lives. However with this new technology comes something our bodies have never experienced before, information carrying radio waves (ICRW). These microwaves allow information to be delivered from one source to another. The problem is that these man-made microwaves cause harm to our bodies at the cellular level, and as a result create many negative health symptoms like headaches, tinnitus- ringing in the ears, insomnia, lack of focus, irritability, rashes, anxiety, and heart palpitations. In this simple to follow guide, we make this information easy to understand; make the sources of radiation easy to find; and solutions easy to implement. This guide is intended for everyone, especially those who are interested in learning about the radio frequency (RF) radiation and dirty electricity that surrounds us today in our world of digital technologies. Paperback, 58 pages, 2014.

by Jim Waugh

Different than most books on the subject because it discusses the theory and background behind EMR in Part 1 and then explains what the reader can do to reduce his or her exposure in Part 2. It is a well researched book that explains complex terms and issues clearly in a very readable form.

It gives simple, do-able steps for testing your living environment to reduce the risks of developing EMR sensitivities and diseases. Numerous recommendations assist the reader in using electrical and wireless technologies safely.

    Topics addressed in Part 1 Living Without Elecricity
  • What EMR is, where it comes from and the reasons for concern
  • How EMR impacts the human body
  • Explanations of EMR terminology
  • Impact on the natural environment
  • Wireless networks and power transmission lines
  • Cellphones
  • Geomagnetic energy
  • Roles of government and industry
    Topics addressed in Part 2
  • Safe exposure standards
  • Building or renovating an electromagnetic safe home
  • Toxic chemicals and EMR
  • Electromagnetic home investigation
  • Real estate pre-commitment investigation
  • EMR in passenger vehicles

Appendices and a bibliography list sources of people, materials, tools and reference material. Paperback. 2010, 234 pages.

The Powerwatch Handbook Simple Ways To Make You And Your Family Safer
by Alasdair and Jean Philips

Are you keeping safe? Electrical wiring and appliances, overhead power lines, machinery, photocopiers, mobiles and cordless telephones, radio masts, TVs, tube trains, x-rays and laser beams are amongst the hundreds of everyday items that are now known to give off high levels of EMF. Electromagnetic fields (EMFs) can be biologically active and capable of making changes to the structure of human and animal cells which are exposed to them. Long-term exposure is believed by an increasing number of scientists and environmentalists to be connected to tumors, fertility problems, behavior and mood changes, concentration and memory loss, and also to affect melatonin production and impair our immune system repair mechanisms. The Powerwatch Handbook is a simple no-nonsense guide to EMFs and how to reduce their harmful effect. Here is practical information on:

  • How to test for EMFs in the home
  • Star ratings for different items and products
  • Simple ways to reduce your exposure to high level pollution
  • Reduce the effect of telephones, mobiles, TV masts and other outside sources
  • EMFs at work and in hospitals, dental surgeries and shops
  • How EMFs affect babies and young children
  • How to avoid becoming electrically sensitive
Information is presented in a practical, positive and lively way, in an easy-to-follow handbook style. EMF levels are graded using a star rating system, high level items are highlighted, and practical tips given in step-by-step, bullet point form. 256 pages, 2006
