Dirty Electricity is high-frequency voltage transients on the mains supply. It is generated by any device that interrupts current flow. When buildings were first electrified the devices which drew power were simply; filament light bulbs, single bar heaters etc. These days we have dimmer switches, compact fluorescent bulbs, power supplies/chargers, TVs, computers etc.
Transients are created when current is repeatedly interrupted. This manipulation of current creates a wildly fluctuating and potentially EMF that not only radiates into the immediate environment but can also back up along the wiring.
Samuel Milham, MD, MPH is the scientist who first alerted the world about the frightening link between occupational exposure to electromagnetic fields and human disease.
Dirty Electricity – Samuel Milham, MD, MPH takes readers through his early years and education, following the twisting path that led to his discovery that most of the twentieth century diseases of civilization, including cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and suicide, are caused by electromagnetic field exposure.
He is a physician-epidemiologist specializing in public health. He has more than one hundred scientific publications, many dealing with the health effects of electricity. In 1997, Dr. Milham was awarded the Ramazzini prize for pioneering work describing the occupational cancer risks of electromagnetic fields.
Milham’s book “Dirty Electricity – Electrification and the Diseases of Civilization” (2nd Edition, iUniverse 2010, 2012) is strongly recommended.
