How many electronic innovations have you dialed, watched, surfed, charged, listed to, booted up, commuted on, cooked with, and plugged in today?
Consider your typical day: If you’re like most people, it probably starts in front of your coffee maker and toaster, ends as you set the alarm on your cell phone, and involves no end of computers and gadgets, televisions and microwaves in between.
We’re being zapped: Today 84 percent of Americans own a cell phone, 89 million of us watch TV beamed in by satellite, and we can’t sip a cup of coffee at our local café without being exposed to Wi-Fi. The very electronic innovations that have changed our lives are also exposing us, in ways big and small, to an unprecedented number of electromagnetic fields. Invisible pollution surrounds us twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, interrupting our bodies’ natural flow of energy. And for some, that pollution has reached the point of toxicity, causing fatigue, irritability, weakness, and even illness.
But we don’t have to simply surrender. Ann Louise Gittleman brings forth the latest research into electromagnetic fields to create this groundbreaking guide for every citizen of the wireless age. With the proactive, levelheaded approach that has made her one of our most respected health experts, she not only clarifies the risks but also offers specific, step-by-step information for how anyone can minimize them. From where you place your sofa to when you use your cell phone to what you eat for dinner, Zapped is packed with strategies for avoiding and mitigating the damaging effects of electropollution.
As she examines modern life room by room, device by device, Gittleman reveals a master plan for detoxifying your surroundings and protecting yourself and your family. We don’t need to abandon our homes—or even give up our PDAs—to be healthier and happier. Based on the latest scientific data, case studies, and Gittleman’s years of clinical practice, Zapped is an empowering guide to living safely with the gadgets we can’t live without.

"In the last 15 years alone, technology has expanded into every aspect of our lives. Today 84 percent of Americans own a cell phone, 89 million of us watch TV beamed to us by satellite, and you can't have a cup of coffee at Starbucks without being exposed to WI-FI. We are constantly being exposed to electromagnetic fields (EMFs), invisible lines of force that surround all electrical devices, and at a rate 100 million times greater than our grandparents were. We're being zapped--high levels of electromagnetic fields and the wavelengths and frequencies they produce have reached the point of toxicity, making us tired, irritable, and weak. Gittleman's groundbreaking book provides a proactive approach that counteracts the toxic effects from an almost constant bombardment of energy fields. This simple and effective program is based on the latest research, case studies, and years of clinical practice. In Zapped readers will learn the science behind digital allergies, and how to determine their level of sensitivity and measure the strength and location of harmful electromagnetic fields in your home and office. With step-by-step instruction the author walks you room-by-room, teaching you how to remake the force fields in your environment and create positive energy flow. Gittleman provides practical solutions to protect you and your family, providing a happy and healthy life coexisting with technology"--
