THE MORNING SHOW
Author of An Electronic Silent Spring
Society receives profound benefits from electronics. Unfortunately, many technologies (i.e. cell phones, cell towers, Wi-Fi and smart meters) emit electromagnetic radiation (EMR) that can harm human health and wildlife. Katie Singer’s An Electronic Silent Spring encourages recognition that EMR can harm.
Katie Singer is a gifted writer and has authored a new book, “An Electronic Silent Spring”. The book features fifty physicists, electrical engineers, biologists, MDs, medical implant patients, lawyers, policy makers, mothers and business people who speak about the impact of electromagnetic radiation on human health and wildlife. This book is impeccably referenced and includes solutions for everyone from newcomers and longtime activists. It is published by Rudolph Steiner/Portal Books.
“An Electric Silent Spring illuminates how human-made electricity and wireless devices impact bee colonies, birds, cows and human cell structure. It describes actions we can each take to reduce and mitigate the harm caused by the electromagnetic radiation emitted by mobile devices. This is an important and thoughtful book for every person concerned about the environment and human health.” -Kenny Ausubel, Co-CEO and Founder, Bioneers
