Synopsis

Synopsis

Keys, wallet, cell phone . . . ready to go! Cell phones have become ubiquitous fixtures of twenty-first-century life—suctioned to our ears and stuck in our pockets. Yet, we’ve all heard whispers that these essential little devices give you brain cancer. Many of us are left wondering, as Maureen Dowd recently asked in the New York Times, “Are cells the new cigarettes?” 

Overpowered brings readers, in accessible and fascinating prose, through the science, indicating 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.

Dr. Blank arms us with the information we need to lobby government and industry to keep ourselves and our families safe. 
Praise

Praise

"This book is a must for anyone concerned with protecting their well-being, that of loved ones, and other species. From the personal, the political, and the planetary, you will never see things the same way again."—B. Blake Levitt, former New York Times contributor and author of Electromagnetic Fields, A Consumer’s Guide to the Issues and How to Protect Ourselves

"The extremely well documented Overpowered reads like an environmental thriller! Dr. Blank does a superb job of explaining the biological effects of cellphones and all things wireless on cell physiology and how to protect ourselves and, most importantly, our children. The sections on electricity, wildlife, and  the 'business' of science all demonstrate the dark side of technology–an inconvenient truth we must consider."—Ann Louise Gittleman, Ph.D.

"Martin Blank deals with a difficult subject in a scientifically accurate but easily readable fashion. He covers everything from powerlines, to cell phones, to light bulbs, to conflicts of interest, with humor and passion. In this great scientist, we have an unlikely activist and truth teller."—David O. Carpenter, M.D., Director, Institute for Health and the Environment, University at Albany
