An Electronic Silent Spring

Book by Katie Singer

An Electronic Silent Spring - Facing the Dangers and Creating Safe Limits

"Society has received profound benefits from electronics. We have developed and marketed electronic technologies [that emit electromagnetic radiation (EMR)] without recognition or regulation of its effects on human health or wildlife. Katie Singer's book, An Electronic Silent Spring, and this website are dedicated to encouraging recognition that EMR can harm people and wildlife; to protective solutions for the public health and our ecosystem.

"While they operate, mobile phones, mobile phone chargers, iPads, cellular antennas, Wi-Fi, compact fluorescent lights, transformers and "smart" utility meters emit electromagnetic radiation (EMR) at frequencies and amplitudes that are not found in nature. An Electronic Silent Spring describes how wildlife and peoples' health are affected.

  1. The book reports on peer-reviewed studies that show that EMR-exposed tadpoles die, aspen tree seedlings wither, bee colonies collapse, birds crash into antennas and white stork mates fight.
  2. Signals emitted by metal detectors, "smart" utility meters, hybrid cars and other common electronics can shut off a medical implant. While the FDA regulates microwave ovens (whose signals can interfere with cardiac pacemakers), no agency regulates cell phones, which operate closer to the body, with more power and at the same frequency as a microwave oven. Geophysicist, electrical engineer and implant patient Dr. Gary Olhoeft explains the issues. 
  3. Dr. Martha Herbert, Harvard pediatric neurologist, and Cindy Sage, MA, co-editor of the BioInitiative Report, and others explain why exposing children to Wi-Fi may lead to autism. The American Academy of Pediatrics warns pregnant women and children not to use cell phones. 
  4. Federal regulations protect the engineering needs of electronic devices and telecom companies. Federal law prohibits local officials from refusing installation of a cell tower based on health or environmental concerns. The book explains federal policies, which do not recognize that EMR can harm health. 
  5. Underwriters Lloyds of London and A.M. Best advise companies not to insure against damages to health caused by wireless devices. This book presents the peer-reviewed studies underlying analysts' concerns. 
"Katie Singer's An Electronic Silent Spring also offers an extensive solutions section for policy makers, telecom and utility companies, schools, civic groups and individuals who want to reduce EMR emissions and exposure.

OVER-POWERED - Dr. Martin Blank

What Science Tells Us About the Dangers Of Cell Phones and other Wi-Fi-Age Devices

"Overpowered" helps lay readers understand the biological effects resulting from low, non-thermal levels of non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation (levels considered safe by regulatory agencies) coming not only from cell phones, but many other devices we use in our homes and offices every day like computers, hair dryers, and microwaves."

Alone Together - AUTHOR Sherry Turkle

Why We Expect More From Technology and Less From Each Other

Alone Together is the result of MIT technology and society specialist Sherry Turkle's nearly fifteen-year exploration of our lives on the digital terrain. Based on interviews with hundreds of children and adults, it describes new, unsettling relationships between friends, lovers, parents, and children, and new instabilities in how we understand privacy and community, intimacy and solitude. It is a story of emotional dislocation, of risks taken unknowingly. But it is also a story of hope, for even in the places where digital saturation is greatest,there are people--especially the young--who are asking the hard questions about costs, about checks and balances, about returning to what is most sustaining about direct human connection. At the threshold of what Turkle calls "the robotic moment," our devices prompt us to recall that we have human purposes and, perhaps, to rediscover what they are.

We offer you the science and, most importantly, the solutions.

From the world's leading experts, here's your practical consumer guide. This book's 4 Strategy Plan will reduce your family's risk.

Not sleeping well, headaches, dizziness, tingling in the hands, ringing in the ears, electro-sensitivity, low immunity, or cardiac symptoms? Wireless Radiation Rescue reveals how these and other conditions can result from exposure to radiation from cell phones, cordless phones, wireless Internet access and other devices we use every day.

"Towering Questions:

Cell Towers. They seem to be popping up everywhere, like intergalactic mushrooms. We see them inappropriately placed in residential neighborhoods, on school grounds, on pristine ridgelines, along beautiful country roads and scenic highways--usually over the vehement objections of neighbors, parents, and environmentalists.

Towers are often reluctantly sited in these hallowed places by the very people we have elected to protect our communities.

Many of our municipal agents have been intimidated by an onerous provision in a federal law--called Section 704 of the Telecommunications Act of 1996, and by an aggressive telecommunications industry which threatens to sue at the hint of a rejected application. Towns, fearing staggering legal bills, have come to think their hands are tied and that somebody's neighborhood must be sacrificed for the sake of the larger community. . ."

A Subtle Addiction - Attacking the Y Generation

New Book by Peter and Lynn McIntosh Discusses Cell Phone Radiation - are Parents Nuking their Kids this Christmas?

"Parents are equipping their children with Smart Phones, Kindles, Ipads, tablets, laptops and video game controllers - meeting their demands for the latest in wireless technology, even though the evidence about Electro Magnetic Radiation and potentially damaging effects on health from these devices mounts daily. The new book 'A Subtle Addiction - Attacking the Y Generation', is a wake-up call to parents this festive season to consider each purchase carefully and the possible implications of such a gift. http://asubtleaddiction.com/

"Mom and Dad are now facing one of the hardest decisions they will have to make about the health of their children through long term exposure to Microwave Radiation. The damning evidence clearly presented in the pages of the new E.Book by co-authors Peter and Lynn McIntosh, 'A Subtle Addiction- Attacking the Y Generation', , will challenge them to address the dangers of obsessive over use by children of their electronic toys and education aids. This ebook offers numerous videos from many creditable sources, and is supported by well researched and documented data from experts worldwide.

"The emotional title in this on-line and downloadable ebook is targeting addiction and the Y Generation (those 8 - 28 year olds). Addiction is usually associated with drugs or smoking, but no, this is about an obsession that parents are either encouraging or turning a blind eye towards. The attraction for everyone with these devices has gone beyond toys and they are now - must have - items in almost every household. Parents disciplining their children now have the most effect when they confiscate for a time one of these items . . .

The second edition of Dr. Sam Milham's book, Dirty Electricity is available from US: Amazon Books and Barnes and Noble, and in Canada: Chapters.ca.  Specify Dirty Electricity 2012 to ensure you don't receive the 2010 edition.  There are 7 pages of new text and 11 new references.  The new text uses bold type to set it off from the original.  The second edition explains how electrical exposure does its damage, and how electricity is causing our current epidemics of asthma, diabetes and obesity.

"When Thomas Edison began wiring New York City with a direct current electricity distribution system in the 1880s, he gave humankind the magic of electric light, heat, and power; in the process, though, he inadvertently opened a Pandora's Box of unimaginable illness and death . . .

Dr. Milham warns that because of the recent proliferation of radio frequency radiation from cell phones and towers, terrestrial antennas, Wi-Fi and Wi-max systems, broadband internet over power lines, and personal electronic equipment, we may be facing a looming epidemic of morbidity and mortality. In Dirty Electricity, he reveals the steps we must take, personally and as a society, to coexist with this marvelous but dangerous technology."
