Are you feeling tired, suffer from sleepiness, depression, increased irritability, unexplained aches and pains, headaches, skin rashes, ringing in the ears, numbness, an irregular heart beat, increased blood pressure or a foggy brain? If so, you may be suffering from “Electrosensitivity”. Dr. Magda Havas, a renowned international expert on electromagnetic radiation (EMR), says “dirty electricity” is a growing worldwide health concern.
Today, few of us would want to discard our electronic devices. But before researching this and the next column, I never realized how modern electrical gizmos generated so much dirty electricity.
Dr. Havas says clean electricity originally powered our homes and workplace using a safe frequency of 60 Hertz (Hz). Today, transformers convert 60 Hz to low voltage power for electronic devices. This creates micro surges of dirty electricity that contain up to 2,500 times the energy of a conventional 60 Hz electrical system. In effect, we’ve created electrical pollution, a contamination that’s not good for us.
I discovered it’s easy to get fooled by dirty energy if you’re not an electrical engineer. For instance, our home has several dimmer devices. I naively believed this was a prudent move, but these devices, along with fluorescent lights, energy saving light bulbs, electrical entertainment centers and computers, generate dirty electricity. In fact, they generally emit more electromagnetic exposure than power lines.
