    After watching this during the show the other day, I put 2 and 2 together.
    I'd been experiencing a particularly irritating bout of insomnia. My head seemed like it was buzzing, only without any sound. The other way I would describe it is a constant and persistent vibration. When I heard David speak about the electro-magnetic energies I immediately thought of the new "airport" wifi we had installed just 5 feet from where I sleep.

    That night, I unplugged it to sleep... I wasn't sure there had been a difference until the next night when I forgot to unplug it until the middle of the night. As soon as I did unplug it, it was as through my head was filled with stillness. Not a vibration to be found!

    Thank you David Wentz! I'll be adding your book to my collection! And, thank you CNN for continuing to keep real news and resources at the forefront. You're changing lives 🙂

    Good for us that you Dave and your father Dr. Myron Wentz are giving back and educating us on how to live healthier longer lives. We need to give the next generation and especially our families options to lead healthy cleaner lives in all areas, starting at home, where we spend much time. We need to share this with everyone we care about. Thanks CNN for airing this important subject.

    A great book with much commonsense advice that we can all use around the home. Backed up by the knowledge and experience of one of the world's preeminent microbiologists as well as a huge amount of scientific evidence, this book should be in everybody's library.

    An exceptional look at the potential dangers in our home that we don't know about and simple solutions to eliminate them. The book is written in simple language, easy to understand and easy to implement some of the solutions they propose.

    Imagine what a 10-20% decrease in these toxins could do for us over 10-20-30 years or more!!
