Zapped

Zapped: Why Your Cell Phone Shouldn't Be Your Alarm Clock and 1,268 Ways to Outsmart the Hazards of Electronic Pollution is a good guide to the modern world of electropollution.

New York Times best-selling author Ann Louise Gittleman explains where electromagnetic fields (EMFs) come from and how they are affecting our health, from blood sugar imbalances and insomnia to cardiovascular disease and cancer.

Gittleman discusses electrosensitivity (adverse effects from EMF exposure) and dirty electricity, which she describes as emerging health threats. She also explains why energy-efficient compact fluorescent bulbs are a bad idea (not only do they contain mercury but they also emit ultraviolet and radiofrequency radiation).

Fortunately, it's not all bad news. Zapped also offers solutions. Gittleman shares tips for minimizing EMF exposure and explains how foods, seasonings, and supplements can reduce the impact EMFs have on our bodies. She writes, "a healthy internal environment is your best shield against disease" and I completely agree.
