I haven’t read it, but it sounds like a fine addition to one’s crackpot literature bookshelf, next to classics such as Dark Mission and The New Paradigm.
Consider the quoted table of deaths by cancer from 1850 through 2017. Attributing these to electromagnetic exposure causes runs into the little problem that the trend starts in 1850, long before widespread electrification, and in fact increases by a factor of three between 1850 and 1880, while the Edison electric light was only invented in 1879 and wide scale electrification did not occur until well after (and was mostly direct current, which emits no electromagnetic radiation).
The chart of “influenzal deaths” with the huge step function in 1890 makes me suspect there was a change in diagnosis around that time. In any case, we now know precisely what the cause of influenza is, and I have heard of no nor can I imagine any conceivable mechanism connecting contracting a viral respiratory disease and exposure to electromagnetic fields.
Let’s check out the author’s biography on the book’s page at Amazon. Presumably, this was provided by the author or publisher to present the author in the best light (bearing in mind that light is a form of electromagnetic radiation).
Arthur Firstenberg is a scientist and journalist who is at the forefront of a global movement to tear down the taboo surrounding this subject. After graduating Phi Beta Kappa from Cornell University with a degree in mathematics, he attended the University of California, Irvine School of Medicine from 1978 to 1982. Injury by X-ray overdose cut short his medical career. For the past thirty-eight years he has been a researcher, consultant, and lecturer on the health and environmental effects of electromagnetic radiation, as well as a practitioner of several healing arts.
Now, how can an “X-ray overdose cut short” one’'s “medical career”, leaving one able to pursue a career as “a researcher, consultant, and lecturer on the health and environmental effects of electromagnetic radiation, as well as a practitioner of several healing arts” for thirty-eight years afterward? Well, let’s see what his Wikipedia page says about the matter:
Firstenberg did not complete medical school due to illness, which he attributes to electromagnetic hypersensitivity brought on by receiving over 40 diagnostic dental x-rays.
Are you picking up the slightest hint of whacko-doodle here? I am. Now let’s turn to his adventures in litigation, again courtesy of Wikipedia.
In May 2008, Firstenberg and other groups accused the city of Santa Fe, New Mexico, of discrimination against those allergic to EM radiation for having free wireless networks in city buildings. The case was dismissed in 2011. An appeal was brought before the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals (Santa Fe Alliance, et al. v. City of Santa Fe, et al., Case No. 20-2066), which, on March 30, 2021, reversed in part and affirmed in part the lower court. A Petition for Certiorari was filed to the United States Supreme Court on October 25, 2021, and was set for conference on March 4, 2022. On that day the Petition was denied. The Court denied or disposed of 102 other Petitions on March 4, 2022, and granted none. On average the Supreme Court receives 7,000–8,000 Petitions for Certiorari every year and typically grants about 80, roughly 1% of those received.
In January 2010, Firstenberg filed a lawsuit against his neighbor, seeking damages of $530,000, for “refusing to turn off her cell phone and other electronic devices.” He claimed that because of shared wiring, electromagnetic fields from his neighbor’s electronic devices were keeping him up at night and destroying his health. He stated that he was made homeless as a result. The First District Court of New Mexico dismissed the case in September 2012, citing lack of sufficient supporting evidence. Firstenberg filed an appeal of the dismissal in the District Court in December 2012. On March 9, 2015, the New Mexico Court of Appeals upheld the dismissal by the district court.
I begin to suspect that the reasons Mr Firstenberg did not complete medical school are due to other problems of the head unrelated to those which occasioned him having all of those dental X-rays.
Arthur also is a member of an organization in Santa Fe, New Mexico, called “Once a Forest”, which promotes fire suppression on public lands. The group opposes forest management policies such as thinning and prescribed fire.
Reviewer “Lawrence P.” on Amazon endorses the book as follows:
I agree this is a great book. Can’t put it down. I have a recommendation since you are learning some truth. Research flat earth! Astronuts have never gone to the moon. We live with a firmament above us and we cannot leave. Astronuts are all masons and sworn to secrecy. Also research the one world order and the illuminati as well. Satan is and always has been the great deceiver. Once you realize these things then you will be truly awake. Be well
