"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 From the Hardcover edition.
