She’s an internationally recognized scientist and writer.
Her award-winning career has spanned academia, public policy, and public service.
She was the founding director of the Board on Environmental Studies and Toxicology of the U.S. National Research Council, National Academy of Sciences (NAS) and the only woman to serve as Scholar in Residence.
Whilst directing the NAS she took a firm stance on cigarettes. She published several (unpopular) reports advising that tobacco smoke be removed from airplanes and the environments of young children.
Under President Clinton she served as Senior Advisor to the Assistant Secretary for Health in the Department of Health and Human Services,
Her first book When Smoke Ran Like Water was a National Book Award finalist.
It told the story of growing up in Donora, Pennsylvania, where in one five-day period, 20 people dropped dead from air pollution.
It’s the town she grew up in. And yet, “no one ever talked about it”.
She went on to learn that Donora had had this massive catastrophe. Later on this led to the recognition that the environment affects our health.
This is something we take for granted now but no one wanted to talk about it then.
She wrote the book and told the stories about what happened to her grandmother, her uncle, and others. “We all learned what the consequences could be of living in a world where the sun didn’t shine for days at a time” she says.
Her second book, The Secret History of the War on Cancer, was a top pick by Newsweek. It influenced national cancer policy in South Africa and became standard reading for major schools of public health like Harvard.
It was her grandchild that got her interested in the subject of her third book. Watching him play one day she observed that at the age of nine months he could already manipulate a cell phone.
This got her thinking. She started to do some research. She was shocked by what she discovered and decided to write a book about it.
Cell Phone Radiation Book
Disconnect–the truth about cell phone radiation presents an array of recent and long suppressed research. It reveals the dark side of cell phones.
When her book was published it was selected by TIME magazine as a top pick of the year and received a Silver Medal for courageous investigation.
In some circles her book became known as “the news that didn’t make the news,”. Hardly surprising given that most of the book chains across the US refused to stock it when it came out.
And yet a few years down the line it has served to form the foundation for public health policy changes around the world including in Canada, Israel.

I was about 3 when my father complained to my mother about my obsessive hankering for sweets. I realized something was wrong, but the word “addiction” had not entered even my parents’ vocabulary. Did you see signs of a budding addiction in your grandson?

It would be interesting to know where would the 7.4 billion active cell phones take humanity to in a space of a few decades downstream.
PRAKASH MUNSHI said,
How can the Citizens of the world come together to fight the Mighty Cellular Industry who have billions of $ and the support of the Governments and Judiciary.
The Judiciary wants proof of Harm and citizens want proof of No Harm. We say No Proof of Harm isn’t Proof of No Harm . The battles will continue but I feel the War on Health will be lost by all.
What will they do with Wealth when there will be no Health.
They are spreading lies of No Harm on TV , Print media and using Government bureaucrats to play their tune.
BUT WE WILL NOT GIVE UP.
Mahatma Gandhi , Father of the Nation has said
” Many People , ignorant people , want to punish you for speaking the truth , for being correct , for being you.
Never apologise for being correct , or for being years ahead of your time.
If you are right and you know it,speak your mind. Even if you are a minority of one, truth is still the truth. ” Gandhi
