Symptoms of multiple sclerosis (MS) resemble those of electrohypersensitivity (EHS), which may result in, an initially, flawed diagnosis. Some individuals with MS may also have EHS and, in this case, improving electromagnetic hygiene in the home and work place may reduce severity of the neurological symptoms, as shown in this video.

Smart Meters, Dirty Electricity and Disease

Featuring: Sam Milham (August, 2011)

"Dirty Electricity" (also called electrical pollution) is caused by an interruption in 60 Hz "clean" alternating current that is delivered to homes and businesses. The major causes of dirty electricity are:

  • Electrical appliances like computers, cordless phones and televisions that operate at a frequency higher than 60 Hz and interrupt clean, 60 Hz current. 
  • Transmitters that interrupt clean electrical current, like Smart Meters.
  • Direct current electrical converters like battery rechargers and solar powered generators that cause interruption.
  • Return currents that travel through the ground. 
This video will address Smart Meter devices that are designed to replace electricity, gas and water meters."

Dr. Sam Milham is a physician and epidemiologist who specializes in occupational medicine and the health effects of electromagnetic fields.  He is the author of the book "Dirty Electricity - Electrification and the Diseases of Mankind."

Electrosmog in the Environment (Switzerland)

Swiss Agency for the Environment, Forests and Landscape (SAEFL) June 2005

"Electricity supply systems, electrical appliances and a wide range of transmitters for various wireless applications generate non-ionising radiation (commonly referred to as "electrosmog")  that can be harmful to our health, depending on its intensity. With its Ordinance relating to Protection from Non-Ionising Radiation, the Federal Council introduced a legal instrument to protect the population against the harmful effects of electrosmog. 

"This publication describes the main sources of electrosmog, assesses the associated risks, identifies existing gaps in research and suggests ways in which we can reduce our own level of exposure."

The health effects of electrical pollution

The National Foundation for Alternative Medicine

" . . . Of particular concern is the high-frequency current created by computers and other electronic devices, which is often called "dirty current." This current is created by numerous devices and is conducted nearly everywhere. The wiring in buildings then acts as antennae for the current, silently and insidiously assaulting those who play and work nearby.

"In other words, the wires that deliver electricity have also become conduits for deadly high-frequency radiation, a form of electrical pollution that has largely escaped attention by the medical community.

"The increased prevalence of this radiofrequency current has coincided with an alarming increase in the prevalence of ailments such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, attention deficit disorder, diabetes and asthma . . .

"Electricity has been a lifesaver for modern civilization and we would be lost without it; but, research has brought to light the existence of different kinds of electricity, namely clean and dirty. Clean electricity is safe electricity. Clean electricity has a smooth sine wave that goes up and down 60 times a second. Dirty electricity is electromagnetic pollution called transients and harmonics - operating in the 4 to 100 kilohertz frequency range - which contaminate the electrical supply . . .

Lloyd Burrell has spent the last 10 years researching the effects of EMFs on health, after becoming electrically sensitive in 2002. He now offers advice and strategies on healthy living in our electromagnetic world.

" . . . Ironically, now that PG&E is offering to disable the wireless RF function (for a hefty price) in their smart meters, we find that there's another extremely critical problem with the meters.

"Just when you thought you had mastered all the esoteric acronyms, and all the problems with 'smart' meters, here's one more: Switching-Mode Power Supply or SMPS. This new element in the 'smart' meter controversy deserves immediate full official and public attention.

"In our on-going investigation into why so-called 'smart' meters being installed by PG&E against rising public opposition are causing so many people to be sick, and so many problems with other electric and electronic equipment, we have been fortunate to obtain the advice of electrical engineers . . .

Dirty Electricity Article - Sam Milham

Hypothesis: the reversal of the relation between economic growth and health progress in Sweden in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries was caused by electrification


" . . . I believe that the onset of electrification in Sweden can explain the reversal seen in twentieth century health indicators from the nineteenth century pattern of health improvement with economic improvement. It can also explain the disease patterns in the electrified world. I predict that the health effects of the current US recession and future recessions will be dampened and hard to discern, because the major individual exposures to electromagnetic fields and dirty electricity are now of non-industrial origin."

Animals 'scared' by bursts of light from power cables

BBC News Science and Environment Report

"Several species' vision was studied by an international team to identify this ultra-violet (UV) sensitivity.

"The findings, published in the journal Conservation Biology, claimed habitats and migration could be disrupted.

"The flashes, or corona, occur when charge builds up in a cable and is released into the air.

"The international team, including scientists from University College London and the Arctic University of Norway, measured the spectrum of light emitted by these bursts of charge.

"They worked out that although the light was invisible to us, it contained wavelengths seen by many other mammals. . . .
