Dirty Electricity

Show Archive
Date: Wednesday - December 8, 2010
Host: George Noory
Guests: Dr. Samuel Milham

Specialist in occupational epidemiology, Dr. Samuel Milham outlined the frightening link between exposure to electromagnetic fields & pollution and human disease. He cited "dirty electricity," brought about when electrical fields have an arc or interruption in current flow, as being particularly detrimental to health when it occurs at high levels. He listed cancer, diabetes, ADHD, depression, and sleep disorders as among the many problems associated with exposure to dirty electricity.

Dr. Milham was critical of cell phones, comparing their usage to putting one's head into a microwave oven. We're starting to see brain cancers on the same side of the head where people hold their phone, he noted. He also warned that the new DECT cordless phones were dangerous because their base units continually send out radiation which can alter a person's heart rate.

In some cases, being "green" isn't always a good thing for one's health, Milham pointed out, detailing how the new compact fluorescent light bulbs contain mercury (a hazardous substance) and generate dirty electricity inside a home. And with potential "smart meters" being added to various appliances, houses will become a virtual electronic sea, he cautioned. To reduce dirty electricity in one's home, he suggested testing electrical outlets, and placing filters on ones that are problematic.
