Overview

Are we going to give up our cell phones, laptops, and other electronics? Absolutely not, but emerging scientific evidence tells us that it is crucial to make important changes in our home and work environments. Zapped is the first step-by-step manual for fortifying your body, detoxifying your home, and protecting yourself and your family from invisible electronic pollution.

With cutting-edge health research, award-winning health pioneer Ann Louise Gittleman reveals the intricate, complex relationship between humans and technology: "Nothing man-made even comes close to the wonder of the human body.... The organic computer, known as your brain, that runs the whole show emits waves that are electrical. All the sensory information it sends and receives is electrical.... We are, in a very real sense, electrical beings in an electrical world...wired to respond to the electromagnetic forces in the universe."

Gittleman also shows us that getting "un-zapped" doesn't have to be a major undertaking. The ease of some of the most powerful fixes to everyday hazards might surprise you:

Move couches and chairs away from the wall, where your electric wiring is located, to minimize your exposure to electromagnetic fields. Also, never place a sofa on a wall if a refrigerator is located on the other side.

Fluorescent, halogen, and even energy-saving lightbulbs generate more electromagnetic fields than standard incandescent bulbs. If you must use energy-efficient lighting, look for LEDs!

Avoid making calls in cars, trains, or buses, in elevators, or underground. Your cell phone has to work harder to get a signal out through metal, so the power level increases in any of these metal "cages."

Ceiling fans, recessed lighting, and refrigerators all generate high magnetic fields in rooms above them-be sure you don't have any of these beneath the rooms your family sleeps in.

    Be wary of being swayed...

    I read this book with a scientific mind, and I've been doing a lot of reading about electric and magnetic fields lately. The fact is, evidence of true health effects from most EMF sources is weak. After reading this book, I also read many of Gittleman's sources, as well as several more scientific articles and reports from NIEHS, the FCC, the FDA, and others, and I have to conclude that this book really only shows you a small piece of the larger issue. Gittleman only talks about the studies that prove her theory, and excludes the many that don't. Read this book if you wish, but be guarded. If you are really concerned about the health effects of EMFs, don't let this book be your only resource.

    This book peddles pseudoscience and irrational fearmongering. Gittleman's misuse and abuse of scientific words and concepts serves only to demonstrate her own ignorance in the fields of science and health. I am ashamed of Barnes and Noble for letting books like this be filed under Physics just because of their subject line, as well as Harper Collins for publishing it as such.

    The references to other pseudoscience writers and their non-conclusioned or outright dis-confirmed "research" only confirm my opinion that this book fails to be helpful to its readers and at best wastes their time and intellectual potential in believing this misinformation. At worst, it makes a mockery of people honestly looking to improve their families' health and safety.

    Highly Recommended

    I am not surprised to see Ann Louise Gittleman once again on the leading edge of 'new' important health information. We all must be informed about Electronic Pollution since we are surrounded by it. This is a 'must read' for anyone interested in improving their health & well being.

    Excellent Practical Guide

    We all know that we are affected by the electronic gadgets around us to some degree, but this book really outlines all the sources of exposure and gives hundreds of easy (and some more complicated) ways of creating a safer environment and living our lives with less health problems as a result. Dr. Ann Louise has always been on the cutting edge with information in the nutrition field and I'm so glad that she is getting this message out to everyone, especially to parents of young children, who can be seriously harmed by our modern world of electropollution.

    A straightforward and enlightening read.

    Dr. Ann Louise Gittleman's book, Zapped, covers a complex topic in a manner that's easy to understand and doesn't frighten the reader. Rather than presenting a "Doomsday" feel by hammering the dangers of Electronic Pollution on page after page, it presents the reader with a multitude of options to combat it that are practical and can be put into action as soon as they set the book down. It's informative, timely, and well written. Zapped is a crucial read for anyone in our modern society.

    I read this book and its great. Someone needs to expose the crimminal acts of the telecoms.They put hundreds of millions of people at risk for cancer and could care less.My nieghbor is an engineer and he knows of the the danger of emf .He is so hooked on his cell phone he can't stop using it. My self I use speaker phone only. In a few years they won't be able to hide the damage they have done.

    Open Your Eyes

    This book is such an eye opener for all of us! I learned so much about the connection between electricity and the human body. You must read about the damage that the electro magnetic fields are inflicting on our bodies! Thank you Dr. Ann Louise once again for giving us the tools to better our lives with your simple solutions to Zap proof our surroundings. You will love the recipes in this book using Zap proof super foods and seasonings.
