Electromagnetic Fields: A Consumer’s Guide to the Issues and How to Protect Ourselves
(Harcourt Brace, 1995)
Winner, Award of Excellence, New England Chapter, American Medical Writers Association, 1996
If our everyday existence is impossible to imagine without electricity and wireless products, then it is also impossible to imagine without electromagnetic fields. But recent legal judgments confirm what some have long said: those ubiquitous fields can pose a serious challenge to our health, housing values, and community development plans. This eye-opening book -- the most comprehensive resource available to consumers today -- explains why and where electromagnetic fields (EMFs) occur, which illnesses may have a strong connection to them, and how your doctor's knowledge may be limited.
"If you are looking for the plain, unvarnished truth and the best available advice, this is one book you should not miss." -- --Robert O. Becker, M.D., Biomedical sciences consultant; co-author of The Body Electric (with Gary Selden), and author of Cross Currents, The Perils of Electropollution, The Promise of Electromedicine.
"Other authors have dealt with EMF questions, but none with the clarity and evenhandedness of B. Blake Levitt. This book avoids the extremes of over dramatization and understatement and delivers the important information in a cool and lively manner." --Andrew A. Marino, Ph.D., J.D., co-author of Electromagnetism and Life, and The Electric Wilderness.
Cell Towers: Wireless Convenience? or Environmental Hazard? Proceedings of the “Cell Towers Forum” State of the Science/State of the Law
(Safe Goods/New Century Publishing, 2000)
B. Blake Levitt, Editor/Contributing Author
Cell towers and hidden “stealth” antennas are cropping up all over despite vehement objections from communities. Health and safety questions arise but are often dismissed by planners and zoners -- the very people entrusted to protect our welfare. Yet, safety concerns about radiofrequency radiation (RF) used in wireless technology spans decades and have yet to be resolved despite our increasing ambient exposures.
" Finally, a publication dealing with the very timely and important issues of cell towers. Following Levitt's excellent overview of the problem, the book takes us through relevant scientific and regulatory issues in a thorough, easy-to-understand manner. This is essential reference work for laypersons, as well as those in science, policy development, regulation, and legislation." --Jerry L. Phillips, Ph.D., Bioelectromagnetics consultant; former Research Scientist, Cancer Therapy & Research Center in San Antonio, Texas, and Pettis Memorial VA Hospital in Loma Linda, California.
"The continued proliferation of this radiation constitutes one of the most significant impacts on human health. Ms. Levitt's compilation of the presentations of the Cell Towers Forum -- along with additional scientific evidence, up-to-date regulatory provisions, and abstracts of pertinent legal decisions -- is unbiased, authoritative, and represents the opinions of recognized experts in the bioeffects of electromagnetic radiation. This book should be required reading for all planning boards, environmental groups, and concerned citizens." ----Robert O. Becker, M.D., Biomedical sciences consultant; author of The Body Electric (with Gary Selden), and author of Cross Currents, The Perils of Electropollution, The Promise of Electromedicine.
