"As [Disconnect] shows, cell phones may actually be doing damage to far more than our attention spans-and could, in fact, be killing us." -Salon.com.
Since the invention of radar, cell phone radiation was assumed to be harmless because it wasn't like X-rays. But a sea change is now occurring in the way scientists think about it. The latest research ties this kind of radiation to lowered sperm counts, an increased risk of Alzheimer's, and even cancer. In Disconnect, National Book Award finalist Devra Davis tells the story of the dangers that the cell phone industry is knowingly exposing us-and our children-to in the pursuit of profit. More than five billion cell phones are currently in use, and that number increases every day. Synthesizing the findings and cautionary advice of leading experts in bioelectricalmagnetics and neuroscience, Davis explains simple safety measures that no one can afford to ignore.Biographie de l'auteur :

Summary: Devra Davis presents a range of recent and long-suppressed research in this timely bombshell. Stunningly, the most popular gadget of our age has now been shown to damage DNA, break down the brain's defences and reduce sperm count while increasing memory loss, the risk of Alzheimer's disease and even cancer. The growing brains of children make them especially vulnerable and half of the world's four billion mobile phone users are under 20. As this eye-opening call to action shows, safer mobile phones can be made now, so why are they not available?. N° de réf. du libraire ABE_book_new_0452297443
