The Invisible Rainbow: A History of Electricity and Life [9781645020097]

(2 reviews) Write a Review

The story of the invention and use of electricity has often been told before, but never from an environmental point of view.

The assumption of safety, and the conviction that electricity has nothing to do with life, are by now so entrenched in the human psyche that new research, and testimony by those who are being injured, are not enough to change the course that society has set.

Two increasingly isolated worlds-- that inhabited by the majority, who embrace new electrical technology without question, and that inhabited by a growing minority, who are fighting for survival in an electrically polluted environment-- no longer even speak the same language.

In The Invisible Rainbow, Arthur Firstenberg bridges the two worlds.

In a story that is rigorously scientific yet easy to read, he provides a surprising answer to the question, How can electricity be suddenly harmful today when it was safe for centuries?


AUTHOR: Arthur Firstenberg is a scientist and journalist who is at the forefront of a global movement to tear down the taboo surrounding this subject. After graduating Phi Beta Kappa from Cornell University with a degree in mathematics, he attended the University of California, Irvine School of Medicine from 1978 to 1982. Injury by X-ray overdose cut short his medical career. For the past thirty-four years he has been a researcher, consultant, and lecturer on the health and environmental effects of electromagnetic radiation, as well as a practitioner of several healing arts.

    The Invisible Rainbow

    Great book. Would highly recommend. Certainly makes you think about the world we live in today and how it affects us all, without questioning the technology we take for granted, whether it’s good or bad for us!
