9780874776096: Cross Currents: The Perils of Electropollution, the Promise of Electromedicine

“A fascinating, thoughtful, and accessible account of the emerging field of electromedicine. A timely and eloquent warning on the hazards of electronic pollution.”—Jeremy Rifkin, author of The Hydrogen Economy

At the same time that exciting insights about electromedicine’s powerful ability to use the body’s inherent healing abilities are emerging, electromagnetic fields radiating from power lines, radar, microwave ovens, VDTs, satellites, radios, and even electric blankets are putting our health at serious risk. Researchers are finding that this radiation correlates with increases in cancer, birth defects, depression, learning disabilities, chronic fatigue syndrome, Alzheimer’s, AIDS, and sudden infant death syndrome.

In this groundbreaking book, Robert O Becker explains how new and nontraditional healing techniques such as acupuncture, homeopathy, visualization, hypnosis, and electrotherapy work through an invisible common source—the body’s electrical system. He also 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. 

Dr. Becker’s powerful synthesis reshapes the future of medicine by putting life energy into our medical perspective and enabling us to see the body in its total living environment—the earth’s electromagnetic field.

About the Author:

Robert O. Becker, MD, was a pioneering researcher and leading expert in the field of biological electricity and regeneration. Twice nominated for the Nobel Prize, he was an orthopedic surgeon and a full professor at the State University of New York, Upstate Medical Center, and at Louisiana State University Medical Center in Shreveport. He was the author of The Body Electric.

From Library Journal:

Becker explores the healing potential and adverse effects of electricity. Many alternative therapies attempt to tap the curative abilities of electromagnetism, and Becker thinks they are often effective modalities which do not have the dangerous side effects of chemotherapy, radiation, and other mainstream medical procedures. On the opposite side of the coin, he reviews the potential dangers of electromagnetic fields from such sources as common household appliances, power lines, and computers--risks exhaustively exposed in Paul Brodeur's Currents of Death ( LJ 10/1/89). This accessible book is recommended for public libraries.
