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
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 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.

The Electronic Sickening of America and How to Protect Yourself
by Bill Cadwallader
There's a hidden danger pulsating in the airways and buzzing behind the walls of millions of American homes, schools, and businesses. Our families, co-workers, even our pets, are exposed to electromagnetic radiation (EMR) almost continually, 24/7. Few people want to address this topic because they don't know what to do. They are frustrated and overwhelmed by the scattered and conflicting information that's out there. And they fear that they will have to give up their electronic necessities. We are all "guinea pigs" in a huge, highly lucrative, disorganized experiment. The telecommunications industry doesn't have to win the scientific argument about safety; it only has to keep the argument going. This book is about how to use your electronic devices more safely; how to guard yourself and the people you love against the unintended consequences of the digital age. EXPOSED has been written to be accessible to the person who has little or no technical background in electronics or physics. The grammar and syntax have been relaxed so it's way easy to read. It has many practical solutions that can be accomplished by just about anyone in one minute, and often without cost. It provides information and perspective so you can discern the facts from fiction regarding the safety of wireless technology and dirty electricity. Most importantly, this book provides solutions. Paperback 2018, 322 pages.

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.
Appendices and a bibliography list sources of people, materials, tools and reference material. Paperback. 2010, 234 pages.
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:
Constant exposure to electromagnetic frequency (EMF) radiation produced by modern technology such as cell phones, tablets and Wi-Fi is one of the fastest growing health issues facing our society today. The author provides all of the education you need to make smart choices and stay safe. Illus. 207 pages, 2017.
Electricity as a pollutant" Curtains that make you sick""
More people suffer with electrical and chemical sensitivities from indoor pollution than we realize. This book has information on existing research into EMF's and the interaction of chemicals and hormones. It outlines a series of steps that readers can follow to identify and transform their sick house into a " Healthy Home". These include:
A practical guide for reducing AC magnetic fields produced by building wiring and improper grounding practices. Step by step instructions for detecting wiring problems and a full description of common wiring errors and how to correct them. This guide is for anyone who wants to inspect their own home, electricians and electrical inspectors, those starting a new profession in EMF consulting, as well as those involved with the process of building construction such as architects and contractors. Utility personnel involved in EMF measurements can profit from this information. 96 pages. Completely updated in 2012.
This DVD will enhance your understanding of the concenpts in the book. Graphically explains how certain wiring errors create high magnetic fields. It shows step-by-step methods of measuring the fields and then how to find the faulty circuit and the wiring error. Created under a grant from California Health Services to help school electricians reduce the magnetic fields found in the state's schools during a 90-school magnetic field survey. Filmed by the video dept. of Southern California Edison and using their graphics animation to show how the currents move in misconnected circuits. Written and hosted by Karl Riley, author of Tracing EMFs in Building Wiring and Grounding. 23 minutes.
