Reducing Exposure to Dirty Electricity

Reducing Exposure to Dirty Electricity — The Healthy Home Economist
January 29, 2012

Electricity was originally intended as a “clean” and safe source of power for homes and businesses through standard usage of the steady electrical frequency of 60 oscillations per second, or 60 Hertz (Hz).

Modern energy efficient devices, electronics, and other reasons such as earth currents can cause significant deviance from the 60 Hz frequency, however, and this pulsed exposure to spiking and unsafe frequencies of electromagnetic radiation (EMFs) on overloaded wires is what has become known as “dirty electricity”.

Exposure to dirty electricity has the potential to cause and exacerbate existing health problems in some people. It is not something that can be smelled, touched, seen, or felt and yet it is very real and very problematic for those who experience it on a daily basis.

The health effects of dirty electricity were first identified as early as the 1950′s in rural areas when the behavior and feeding patterns of animals were negatively affected by stray voltage caused by poor grounding and lack of utility infrastructure.

In humans, symptoms of exposure to dirty electricity can include:

Difficulty sleeping
Body aches and pains
Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Worsening of symptoms from multiple sclerosis or ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease)
