Dear John,

Try a book called "Cross Currents" by Robert O. Becker, M.D. 
(It's kind of subtitled, "A Startling Look at the Effects of Electromagnetic 
Radiation on Your Health")

Also, you might find some interesting stuff in two books written by Peter 
Tompkins and Christopher Bird, "The Secret Life of Plants" and "Secrets of the 
Soil."  I'm none too sure about the "validity" of some of their stuff, but the 
theories presented are pretty thought-provoking.
