What is Dirty Electricity?

Dirty electricity, or “electrical pollution” has been cited frequently as a major health issue facing our population. Electrical pollution is virtually everywhere in the modern world and is almost unavoidable in the urban environment.

Like carbon monoxide, electrical pollution is not something we can see, smell, taste, or touch. It is something only a few can sense, making it difficult for many to notice. Therefore, it is important to understand what causes electrical pollution and what to look for in your everyday environment.

Many complain about a variety of effects associated with dirty electricity such as; headaches, ringing in the ears, difficulty focusing, and numerous other symptoms. These symptoms are now being referred to as being related to electrohypersensitivity or EHS.

Dirty Electricity has four major sources for finding its way into your home, office or everyday environment:

  1. Utility-provided electricity from substations and transformers

  2. Appliances, lighting and other home or office electronics.

  3. Communications technologies such as radio, TV, Wi-Fi, cellular phones, and other wireless electronics.

  4. Wiring error such as shared neutrals, reversed circuits, or bonded neutrals.

Did you know that your home and office electrical circuits act as a giant copper antennae? Your home wiring circuits, hundreds of times larger than the radio antenna in your car, can detect and transmit radio waves, bringing dirty electricity to any and all of your appliances, electronics and members of your household.

Electricity does not simply go into an appliance and "disappear". Electrical energy flows through various electronic and electrical technologies and becomes heat, light, sound, motion, pressure, radiation or some combination thereof.
