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.
