Becker explores the healing potential and adverse effects of electricity. Many alternative therapies attempt to tap the curative abilities of electromagnetism, and Becker thinks they are often effective modalities which do not have the dangerous side effects of chemotherapy, radiation, and other mainstream medical procedures. On the opposite side of the coin, he reviews the potential dangers of electromagnetic fields from such sources as common household appliances, power lines, and computers--risks exhaustively exposed in Paul Brodeur's Currents of Death ( LJ 10/1/89). This accessible book is recommended for public libraries.-- Judith Eannarino, George Washington Univ. Lib., Washington, D.C.

After choosing a career working with electricity, electronics, and computers, I found that in my thirties my health ran down to the point of being put on prescription medication. None of the doctors could tell my why this occurred and they told me that it was a "normal aspect of aging", everyone is the same! I now know that I had a form of radiation sickness that was caused by exposure to the equipment that I was working with, the products that were in my home, and too much sunlight exposure (the Sun is a nuclear reactor!). This is an excellent book that confirmed my own personal findings. Today I have good health that I thought was impossible to achieve a few years ago.

I was very impressed with a YouTube Dr. Becker presentation, and sought to make the apparatus referred to in the video... a little system to wear on the arm or leg providing a low electric current to the body. This information isn't in the book, and I haven't been able to find it anywhere, although the late Dr. Becker said he wanted to make the parts list and directions available to all. This book goes into technicalities that an engineer might find interesting, but not the layman.
