Dirty Electricity

Melvin Dummar says a grand conspiracy has denied him his portion of billionaire Howard Hughes' vast estate. Many consider Dummar to be a fraud but an in-depth investigation by Gary Magnesen has apparently shown Dummar to be a good samaritan who saved Hughes from certain death. Both joined George Knapp to discuss why Hughes was in the desert, as well as those who schemed to deny Dummar and several institutions of their rightful share of the Hughes estate. In the first hour, veteran music journalist Joel Selvin talked about the notorious Rolling Stones Altamont concert of 1969, considered by many to be rock’s darkest day.

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.
