The Force living safely in a world of electromagnetic pollution
by Lyn McLean
'One of the most important books I have read in a long time... a tour de force that covers an encyclopedic range of topics.' Lloyd Morgan, Environmental Health Trust fellow, 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
Technology infiltrates our lives so rapidly that few of us stop to consider the potential health implications. Yet could the technology designed to improve our lives actually be making us sick?
Scientists have long believed that there is a link between health problems and radiation from mobile phones, wireless connections, powerlines, and electronic devices. Radiation has been linked to issues such as depression, fatigue, miscarriages, 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.
'Thank you for your wonderfully well written and researched book. I have already read it on Kindle and I am ordering this copy to share with my family.'
Safer ways to use mobile and wireless technology
By Lyn McLean, illustrated by Janet Selby
Today’s children are using more wireless technologies for longer periods of time than ever before. Yet children are more vulnerable to the radiation they emit than adults and know less about how to protect themselves. In Wireless-wise Kids Lyn McLean and Janet Selby show children how to use mobile phones, cordless phones, wireless computers and tablets more safely. Their practical, beautifully-illustrated suggestions echo recommendations by world experts that we should be taking precautions to help keep our children safe. The first book of its kind anywhere in the world, Wireless-wise Kids is a 36-page, full-colour paperback on wireless technologies aimed specifically at young people. It contains dozens of tips that young people can easily understand an implement and has scores of colourful, animated pictures and cartoon characters designed to appeal to kids of all ages. ‘We think that kids will derive as much information from the pictures as the text,’ said Selby, who, like McLean, is a trained teacher. Even adults have found its practical suggestions helpful! The book’s message is in line with recommendations from many international authorities to limit children’s exposure to microwave radiation. These include Russia's peak radiation authority, the European Environment Agency, the European Parliament, governments in Britain, Israel and France and medical organisations in Ireland, Germany, Vienna and the US.’

'What a great book! It's concise and readable for kids and it gets the message about wireless safely across. I think it's fantastic! The pictures are awesome!' Simon
'Well, I have just purchased Lyn's children's book and I am taking it to my grandchildren in NZ. This book should be in every school and medical practice in the country. Although it is written and illustrated so that children can easily understand it, it can also be easily understood by adults.' Mike
The book is great I'll strongly be recommending it to everyone. Well done!! S.L
