Wow.. I’ve known for quite some time that EMFs and specifically the radiation from phones can be harmful but dang... I was amazed to see the research on how soon we can experience negative effects from even low doses/exposure - well below the woefully inadequate and outdated telecommunications act of 1996 allows...
I was particularly concerned by the part about scrolling on your phone while it’s on your belly destroying beneficial bacteria and making you susceptible to illness..

I would have preferred more detail, but a good summary nonetheless.

The information in this book will freak you out, but it's important to look at the long-term effects of a technology that proliferated with literally no oversight or health studies. It was allowed into the marketplace and built as vital communication infrastructure using cellphone regulatory standards from 1994. Hint: our phones are still approved using this criteria: that they don't heat your brain 2 degrees in a total of 6 minutes of use per day held 5mm away from your head or body. These "stu ...more

Great information and tips to reduce emf’s in your life. There’s much more to it than keeping your phone on ‘airplane’ mode. And Nick lays it out in easy to understand simple steps, from cheap and easy up to more advanced analysis using experts. I love all the resources he provides as well. I didn’t even know Building Biologists were a thing.
I already implemented the ‘cheap and easy’ tips for reducing the fields in my bedroom last night. Haven’t slept that well in a long time. Thanks Nick!

Okay, now I'm making some changes in my home. This was a super easy to read and understand guide. Pineaunt lays out the facts without cherry picking. Well done! Could have used an editor as some sentences weren't proofed but you still get what he intended to say. I plan on sharing this with family and friends. ...more

Interesting Information

The book was humorous and informative. It gave me a lot to think about and practical solutions as well. It’s also scary to think that products are available for use long before research is done on safety.

A must read for everyone

I have not read the other books on EMF yet, but this is most definitely a great start. It has recommendations for more reading, useful products and explains everything you need to know in simple fashion. Thanks Nick!

Some of you are no doubt wondering if it's possible for a "guide to EMFs" to be "non-tinfoil."
Yes, it is, and this one was excellent.
"EMFs" are Electromagnetic fields, which are created by things like your cellphone, microwaves, wifi routers, power lines, etc.
With such huge advances in technology the last few decades, humans are currently being exposed to huge amounts of EMFs, and the big question is whether they have any effects - especially detrimental effects - on humans.

This book explains the dangers of cell phone usage up against your head or nExt to your body. It gives some suggestions to be safer with your kids and yourself. Turn off your router at night and put your phone in airplane mode!

Everyone Should Read This Book

Very Informative. So much to learn, and this is a good beginning. Even if we make small changes day by day, we can make a huge difference to the quality of our health and life!

The Best!

This book presented the subject matter in a very understandable manner. I learned a lot more new information such as various on line resources for my on quest for risks existing in my own surroundings and potential available mitigation. Thanks a lot lot for sharing.

Quick, simple, effective.

Nicolas lays out his thoughts well and concise (though he does repeat himself a good bit repeating himself). This is a great quick guide to get someone up-to-speed on the various factors and risks related to electromagnetic field radiation/exposure.

Nicolas Pineault manages to make a difficult subject easy and a serious subject light. I loved his humor. In this our age of technology, the Non-Tinfoil Guide to EMFs is an absolute must-read.

Should probably be read by everybody. It is worrisome, but the author offers some very practical strategies for reducing EMF exposure.

Time to wake up

I had to take my phone off of airplane mode in order to write this review. So I’ll make this quick.
This electromagnetic frequency poisoning and sickness stuff is for real. I’m shocked that many of the educated and intelligent people I work with still think this is WOO WOO. People believe in electricity, they believe in ultra violet and infrared frequencies , theybelieve in x-rays, they believe in microwaves- But I can’t seem to get them to grasp the concept of electromagnetic freq
