Many books have been published by people wishing to bring the EMR health issue to the attention of the community and the authorities, usually with minimal effect.


The list of publications  following includes collectively a   formidable reference list  of the studies linking EMR with human disease.  There are many, many more available. That ‘proof’ cannot be found is irrelevant,  in the face of  so much evidence of association, which validates the empirical evidence  of perceptive  members of the community and many scientists. 

The  CSIRO REPORT (1994), 174 pages,  highly recommended though somewhat dated  STATUS OF RESEARCH ON BIOLOGICAL EFFECTS AND SAFETY OF ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION:TELECOMMUNICATIONS FREQUENCIES  prepared by S. Barnett, P.hD.   Available  on  Stewart Fist’s  website : < >    

DOCUMENTED EVIDENCE DOES EXIST revealing   the complicity of EMR  in human health degradation.  We offer a list of publications that demonstrate the  EMR health connection.

This author  has noticed,  during years of literature study, that reports  and studies that are positive  in their  summation, of  the adverse impact of electromagnetic field  radiation on human health,  fall into obscurity,  are  seldom  referred to in public information literature, or if  referenced,   are immediately dismissed as being questionable as to reliability.

This serves to create the distinct impression that there is  very little reliable background information available on this topic and  that there  is little  evidence of an adverse  link between EMR and ill health.

Quite the reverse can be determined from the  number of publications, reports and papers  that include  extensive reference lists of studies which  leave little room  for argument regarding the adverse effects of EMR on human health.

These reports, which seldom see  the light of day after initial release,  have been found to be a wealth of information for the lay public as well as professionals seeking  to increase their knowledge of the  EMR and health connection.

A report in New Scientist 2.5.1998  confirms this observation by  drawing  attention to the fact that almost half the papers published, on all topics,  in scientific journals,  are never subsequently cited in future  articles.  As a result  important material reflecting  many hours of  in-depth work  of researchers,  carried out at considerable monetary  cost.

Funds are provided by government and industry  for research and development,  the former provided by taxpayers,  the latter  factored into  the cost of existing consumer products.  The total costs  borne by the community,    represents a  considerable waste of  money for  valuable resources that are never used.

The  published titles listed  here  reflects but  a sample  of  valuable work,  in this instance  dealing with the health issue of human exposure to  electromagnetic field radiation  ranging from power line frequencies of  50-60 Hertz to the mobile phone technology frequencies of 2.000.000 Hertz,( gigaHertz)  

Included are the titles of a number of books written by concerned authors  who have drawn on scientific papers as well as valuable empirical evidence which has come to their attention.

If you know of titles of similar  works  which we have overlooked,   please advise  and we will be happy to include them  in this  list.

Don Maisch says “At last there is a book available that extensively covers the building EMF issue from an architectural perspective  Having been originally trained in architectural building design in the USA, I have given numerous presentations to OH&S Union groups in Tasmania, South Australia and Victoria on workplace problems associated with chemical and EMF exposures in modern IT workplace environment. At last there is a book available that extensively covers the  building EMF issue from an architectural perspective. In my opinionit is THE essential reference for Trade Unions, Building Designers  and bascially anyone interested in the impact of EMF on the built  environment.”
