This publication is designed to provide factual information to the public by answering some of the most commonly asked questions such as What biological effects can be caused by radiation?, What are safe levels for exposure to radiofrequency/ microwave radiation?, How safe is the radiofrequency radiation emitted by radio and television broadcasting antennas? and much more. 38 pages, 1999.
Crosscurrents describes the meeting of two opposing trends: the rapid rise of electro-medicine, which promises to unlock the secrets of healing, and the parallel rise of electropollution, which poses a pressing environmental danger. At the same time that exciting insights into how to use the body's inherent healing abilities are gained, electromagnetic fields radiating from powerlines, radar, microwave ovens, VDT's, satellites, radios, and even electric blankets are attacking our bodies' resources. Crosscurrents offers practical ways to protect ourselves in our homes and offices from the hazardous effects of electromagnetic pollution, and teaches us how to engage the healing energies of electromagnetism.

Exposes the Extreme Hazards of Powerline Radiation and Provides a Solution to The Problem
This is one man’s study of the dangers and effects of power lines and radiation to human beings, if this energy is not properly managed, designed, and studied.
Presenting the result of a long standing investigation of electromagnetic radiation energy emanating from an experimental 13.2KV, 50 megawatt transmission line system wrongfully installed 30 meters in front of the author's house in 1978. It attempts to show that power line radiation caused cancer, heart disease, autism, birth defects, mental illness, etc. It also includes a scientific solution to the controversial problem of powerline radiation hazard that has existed since the days of Thomas Edison.
This book contains unique (and unconventional) information that can aid in the proper management of risk, bioelectromagnetic studies, power lines system design, epidemiological studies and environmental impact studies where the harmful effects radiation energy on human beings is the main concern. This report is also helpful in implementing municipal zoning ordinances, building codes and development and re-development plans. Furthermore, it suggests that powerline distributing networks must be properly designed and controlled to operate within the NCR cancer energy limit to protect the public health. Text could use some serious editing to improve clarity. 50 pages, 2008.

Technology has transformed this planet into an open microwave system with its satellite transmissions. While the transmission of microwaved information can be handled in a safe and effective manner to provide for global communication without affecting the overall health of our planet, the health consequences from our current method of continuous low level exposure to microwave radiation can be catastrophic.
The book starts by examining dosimetry which shows which parts of the body are most sensitive to microwave radiation based on studies done by US Armed Forces. Dosimetry is also predictive of the pattern of injury that one would expect to find. The second chapter explains how microwave radiation produces disease. It examines the mechanisms of disease production in living systems. It also explains how microwave injury manifests as specific organ dysfunction, be it neurological, behavioral, immune, cancer etc. The third demonstrates through the use of graphs that the parallel and symmetrical rise of certain illnesses across broad geographic areas suggests a common force acting equally on all these regions. The graphs also demonstrate that it is the rate of increase not the absolute number of cases in a given region that is important. Examines the common link between microwave radiation and seemingly unrelated illnesses.
Presented in a clear language that the laymen can understand. Liberally referenced from the scientific literature. The book is designed to be generally informative as well as a reference source for the average reader. Even provides a wealth of resources that have been shown to be beneficial to offset the consequences of excess microwave exposure. 2006
