Dirty electricity is a nickname for stray high frequency transients which ride along on 60 hertz power lines. These abnormal spikes, flowing along a conductor, deviate from the pure 60-hertz sine wave and produce both harmonic and non-harmonic transient components, exposing people to kilohertz radiation (thousands of hertz). These particular kilohertz waves have characteristics of both extremely low frequency radiation (ELF) and radiofrequency radiation (RF) associated with wireless telecommunications. Dirty electricity emerged as a problem in the late 1970s with increasing use of electronic devices that produce non-linear loads.
    Many studies now link dirty electricity not only to EMS but also to human cancers, Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS), multiple sclerosis and diabetes.  Renown researcher Dr. Samuel Milham has completed many research projects which implicate electromagnetic fields in a wide range of health problems. One of his best-known studies documents a link between dirty electricity in a California middle school to a huge cancer cluster among teachers who suffered cumulative exposure to high frequency voltage transients in their classrooms.1
    Dr. Magda Havas, a Canadian medical researcher, has produced human medical studies showing that there appears to be a relationship between dirty electricity and elevated blood sugar in some individuals. Dr. Havas presented four case studies that revealed marked changes in blood sugar associated with exposure to high frequency voltage transients. It is the Type 3 diabetes that is most influenced by environmental electromagnetic pollution.2
    In other studies, Dr. Havas has shown that people with multiple sclerosis (MS) may be able to get relief from the symptoms and some may be able to delay, halt or reverse the progression of this neurological disease by reducing exposure to high frequency voltage transients, as well as radio wave radiation from cell phones and wireless technology.3 
     For many health reasons it is critical for people to learn how to measure, avoid and mitigate dirty electricity.
