'The Force - Living Safely in a world of electromagnetic pollution' by Lyn McLean

The ultimate resource on electromagnetic radiation. This book explains why you should and how you can reduce your exposure to EMR. 


Scientists have long believed that there is a link between health problems and radiation from mobile phones, wireless connections, power lines, and electronic devices. Radiation has been linked to issues such as depression, fatigue, miscarriage, childhood leukaemia, and even brain tumours.

In The Force, Lyn McLean shows us why electropollution is among the most important health issues of our time. Examining research from around the world, she explains how and why we are all at risk and offers practical, easy-to-understand advice for homeowners, parents, and employees wanting to reduce their exposure at home and in the workplace.

The book covers everything you need to know about electromagnetic radiation and how to make your home and your workplace safe. It covers:

  • a layman’s guide to electromagnetic fields
  • power lines and appliances
  • mobile and cordless phones
  • base stations and broadcast towers
  • computers and WiFi
  • how electromagnetic radiation affects the body and health
  • electromagnetic hypersensitivity
  • different perspectives on health
  • Australian and international standards
  • reducing exposure at home and in the workplace.         

'One of the most important books I have read in a long time ...a tour de force that covers and encyclopaedic range of topics.'

Lloyd Morgan, researcher into electromagnetic radiation and brain tumour survivor

'An easily readable account ... the personal stories are compelling, and the scientific evidence is presented in a forceful yet understandable manner.' 

Dr David Carpenter, Director of the Institute for Health and the Environment

‘A valuable book that details the problem of electromagnetic radiation and what we can do about it.’

Professor Yuri Grigoriev, 
Head Russian Committee for NonIonising Radiation Protection

Amazon 5 out of 5 stars — Outstanding Comprehensive Outline of the EMR Issues
'I have probably read the 40 most well known books on the subject, and THE FORCE covers every aspect of electric and magnetic field pollution, from the elementary capacity of being able to make a cell phone call outdoors in 1996 to having powerful and toxic WiLan, WiPan and WiMax distributions systems of 4G frequencies penetrate the walls of every house, public and commercial building in America in 2012. The intensity of the "electrosmog" has become a public health crisis of such dimensions that it is a primary national security issue. Please order THE FORCE for every family member and friend, as well as every local, state and federal policymaker so we can move America to underground fiber optics, which is much faster and more reliable, as well as more secure and safe.' By John McPheeon September 24, 2012 

Amazon 5 out of 5 stars — Excellent Book!
'I was plagued my mysterious aches, pains, and fatigue throughout my thirties and could not figure out what was causing these conditions, nor could my doctors. I eventually realized that I had a condition called radio wave sickness (RWS) that had come from working with electricity, electronics, and computers. My home being filled with products that were adding to the toxic exposures that I was receiving simply increased the level of the symptoms. This was one of the books that I purchased to understand the toxicity of electricity, electronics, and wireless products. I am now very healthy after detoxifying from these exposures, something that the doctors could not diagnose nor fix. Their only option was prescription drugs. I find it concerning that we are in an era of environmental wireless radiation overloading and that the doctors cannot diagnose a classic case of radio wave sickness (RWS).'

Amazon 5 out of 5 stars — Well Done
'With the latest technology including everything from smart phones, cordless and mobile phones, WiFi internet, power company smart meters and more, electromagnetic fields, radio or microwave frequency fields and dirty electricity are everywhere in record numbers not seen before. The question is, Are they harmful? Also, if they are harmful, what do we do to protect ourselves?. In a most thoroughly researched, really informative book on this vitally important subject,the author gives us a thorough overview of the studies done worldwide to determine EMF's effect on human health, the diseases they cause and how this takes pace in the body. The author ends by sharing steps we can take to protect ourselves from harm. While the author gives a thorough review of the various remedies available to fix the problem, what I most liked about the book is the author's intelligent non fear mongering solutions. These frequencies are definitely dose and distance dependent. Because this is so, the places in your home and workplace where where you spend the most time should not be located in areas where these fields are high (hot spots). My best friend is a professional seamstress. As sewing machines give off extremely high amounts of EM'F's which constantly bathe the sewer's whole body, this is the industry with the most adverse health consequences from EMF's. My Father-in-law was a power line repairman, which is the job with the second highest number of adverse effects from EMF's. He retired young and also died of cancer young. I also personally related to the part EMF's play in in triggering chemical sensitivities.The bigger your body load of either EMF;s or harmful chemicals the more your immune system is compromised.'
