Dirty Electricity: An Invisible Pollutant in Schools
Introduction: Dirty electricity is a type of electrical pollution that is generated by modern electronic devices and is often not regulated. It is also known as high-frequency voltage transients and can cause harm to both human health and the environment. Dirty electricity can be present in any electrical system and is a growing concern for schools where students and teachers spend a significant amount of time. The purpose of this essay is to shed light on the issue of dirty electricity in schools and its potential impact on human health and the learning environment.
Studies Show the Effect of Dirty Electricity in Schools: One of the most notable studies on dirty electricity was conducted by Dr. Magda Havas at a Wisconsin elementary school. The school had been labeled as a “sick building” by the school district, with multiple staff members suffering from chronic illnesses and a high number of students with asthma. A power quality expert was invited to the school, who found elevated levels of high-frequency radiation (dirty electricity) and installed Graham Stetzer (GS) filters to remove the problem. Within days, the staff and students noticed marked improvements in their health, with fewer cases of fatigue, allergies, headaches, and absenteeism. The school was no longer classified as a “sick building” and a lawsuit initiated by the teachers’ union was dropped.
Another study conducted by Dr. Havas at a Toronto private school for students with learning disabilities found that the school had high levels of dirty electricity, although it did not have high magnetic fields. Dirty electricity has been shown to be associated with an increased risk of childhood leukemia, and schools are advised not to be built near high voltage transmission lines to minimize student exposure.
Impact on Human Health: Dirty electricity has been linked to a wide range of health problems, including fatigue, migraine headaches, asthma, allergies, and electrical hypersensitivity. Children seem to be particularly sensitive to this type of pollution, and many of the behavioral traits that disappear when dirty electricity is removed are associated with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). In addition, dirty electricity has been implicated in the development of childhood leukemia.
Impact on the Learning Environment: A healthy learning environment is essential for students to thrive, and the presence of dirty electricity can significantly compromise this environment. The negative impact of dirty electricity on human health, such as fatigue and headaches, can affect students’ ability to concentrate and retain information. It can also increase frustration and irritability, leading to a disruptive classroom environment.
Dirty electricity is an invisible pollutant that is present in many schools and can have a significant impact on human health and the learning environment. Monitoring and mitigating electromagnetic pollution in schools is essential to improve the school environment and reduce ill health and learning difficulties. It is important that schools take steps to reduce their exposure to dirty electricity, including installing GS filters, reconfiguring computer stations, and reducing the use of electronic devices that generate this type of pollution. By addressing this issue, schools can create a healthier and more conducive learning environment for students and teachers.
Dirty electricity and radio frequency radiation are forms of electromagnetic pollution that may negatively impact the health of students and staff in schools. Studies suggest that young children are most sensitive to dirty electricity, which is generated by modern electronics and can cause issues like ADD and ADHD. The presence of dirty electricity in schools, where there is a concentration of electronic devices and fluorescent lights, can also contribute to sick building syndrome.
On the other hand, radio frequency radiation is caused by wireless technology, such as cellphones and wireless computers. Though exposure to this technology is relatively recent, available studies suggest it may cause a range of health and biological effects, including cancer, radio wave sickness, and impaired learning.
To ensure the health and well-being of students and staff, it is recommended to monitor schools for both forms of electromagnetic pollution and take steps to mitigate exposure where necessary. This can improve the school environment and reduce illnesses and learning difficulties.
Conclusion: I must warn everyone about the dangers of dirty electricity and excessive EMF exposure. Our homes and buildings were originally designed to use 60 Hertz AC electricity, which worked well for older electronics. But with the advent of new technology, modern electronics are no longer compatible with this electrical system. This has led to the creation of “High-Frequency Voltage Transients”, which cause inconsistent spikes and surges of electricity that emit harmful EMF radiation.
This “dirty electricity” is created when developers manipulate the 60 Hertz AC electrical system to meet the needs of their devices. This can be done by converting the AC into DC or higher voltage AC, or by drawing power in short bursts. These manipulations result in dirty electricity that spreads through the wiring in our homes and even into our neighbor’s homes.
Common electronic devices such as cell phone chargers, energy-efficient light bulbs, computers, TVs, and dimmer switches often need more or different electricity than the standard electrical system provides. These devices use transformers and rectifiers to change the voltage and convert AC to DC, which causes the voltage to round off and switch from AC to DC, resulting in harmonics of dirty electricity.
Dirty electricity travels in both directions from the wall plug where the device is plugged in, to the breaker box, and to other outlets and devices in the home. It can even spread outside the home and into neighboring buildings.
Products that regularly produce dirty electricity include dimmer switches, computers, and compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs).
The dangers of dirty electricity have been well documented in numerous studies. Over 200 international scientists, published the Bioinitiative report in 2012, which alerted the public and organizations like the United Nations and World Health Organization to the dangers of EMFs. The report cites over 1000 studies showing low-level exposure to this radio frequency radiation is linked to fatigue, headaches, mood swings, heart arrhythmia, and asthma, among other health problems. We must act now to protect ourselves and our families from the harmful effects of dirty electricity.
I cannot stress the importance of reducing exposure to dirty electricity and microwave networks in our homes and communities enough. Beyond just impacting our health, it also affects the environment in negative ways. But there is hope, and we can all play a role in reducing our exposure.
Here are several ways to help lower the amount of dirty electricity in your living space:
- Unplug electronics when not in use. Just because they’re not in use doesn’t mean they aren’t emitting harmful EMF radiation.
- Use power strips. Consolidating multiple devices onto one power strip reduces the overall amount of dirty electricity released into your home.
- Invest in clean technology. Look for electronics that are designed to reduce their emission of dirty electricity, such as smart plugs or low-emission devices.
- Install filters. Installing filters in your home’s electrical system can significantly lower the amount of dirty electricity and EMF radiation emitted.
- Ditch dimmer switches and CFLs. These products are notorious for emitting high levels of dirty electricity.
By implementing these simple steps, we can protect ourselves and our families from the dangers of dirty electricity. Let’s work together to create safer and healthier environments for all.
I would like to emphasize the importance of educating others about the dangers of unnecessary EMF exposure from within our walls. Spread the word to your friends, family, and community about the impact of dirty electricity and unnatural made-mad EMFs on health and the environment, and encourage them to take steps to reduce their exposure. Together, we can create a safer and healthier environment for all.
Sources of radio waves include outdoor antennas and cellphones, indoor cordless phones and computers, and vehicles equipped with CB radios and mobile radar units. Symptoms of radio wave sickness may include headaches, heart palpitations, respiratory issues, skin rashes, eye pain, and more. These symptoms are similar to those associated with electrical hypersensitivity (EHS), which is estimated to affect between 3% and 35% of the population.
