More than five billion mobile phones are currently in use globally, and that number increases every day. Yet the latest research ties mobile-phone radiation to lowered sperm counts, and increased risk of Alzheimer's disease, and certain types of cancer. What are mobile-phone companies doing to increase product safety? And how far will they go to protect their interests? In Disconnect, Devra Davis, a National Book Award finalist, offers a clear and compelling account of the sea change that has taken place in the way physicists and biologist think about radiation in the microwave spectrum. Synthesizing the cautionary advice of leading experts in bioelectromagnetics and neuroscience, Davies explains the simple safety measures that we must take - before it's too late. 'Disconnect raises significant questions about our constant exposure to the electronic radiation that flows from the devices into our homes, workplaces, and public spaces.' The Washington Post
