The Real Cause Of Modern Disease
Epidemiologist Dr. Samuel Milham has published an important book, "Dirty
Electricity: Electrification and the Diseases of Civilization." It is a call to
action for the public health field, implicating electromagnetic fields in a
wide range of health problems.
Dirty electricity (high frequency voltage transients on electrical wiring) is a
potential universal carcinogen. For over a hundred years, it has been assumed
that the higher incidence of diseases in urban areas was related to lifestyle.
But according to Electromagnetic Health: "Analyzing death records from
electrified rural areas and non-electrified rural areas in the early part of
the 1900s, Dr. Milham has shown higher incidence of 'diseases of civilization,'
such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes and suicide, were in fact strongly
correlated with electrification."
As commented by Dr.Joseph Mercola 8/10 (mercola.com), In Dirty Electricity: Electrification and the Diseases of Civilization, Sam Milham, MD points out that the major diseases plaguing modern man - heart
disease, cancer, diabetes, etc. - may be triggered by a prevalent, yet nearly
entirely overlooked, cause: dirty electricity. You generally cannot feel or
touch electromagnetic fields (EMFs) and electricity in your environment, but
it's becoming increasingly clear that your cells are indeed impacted.
Dr. Magda Havas writes: "Dirty Electricity" can … be used to describe electric power that has become corrupted by our use of
modern appliances. Items such as CFL bulbs, cell phone transmission antennas,
power supplies for portable computers, cell phone chargers, dimmer switches,
variable speed fans and many other electronic devices that require a
transformer to convert the voltage will "dirty" the electricity that enters
your home. This form of dirty electro-magnetic fields (EMF) is invisible to the
eye, but has a biological effect on the human body and has been associated with
a wide variety of illnesses."
The Rise of Disease Beginning in the 20th Century?
After analyzing health demographic data going back to the early part of the 20th
century, Dr. Milham showed that populations without electrification experienced
less disease than in urban areas with electrification, and that rural death
rates correlated with levels of electrical service for most causes examined.
Conditions linked to electrification included cardiovascular disease, cancer,
diabetes and suicide.
Milham says, "The explosive recent increase in radio-frequency radiation and
high frequency transients sources, from cell phones and towers, terrestrial
antennas, Wi-Fi and Wi-Max telecommunication systems, broadband internet over
power lines, and personal electronic equipment may be leading to a new 21st
Century epidemic much like the 20th Century electromagnetic field epidemic."
Milham's research suggests that patients with Lou Gehrig's disease (ALS) may
develop it through exposure to electromagnetic fields applied to or induced in
the body, such as from conventional medical electromagnetic stimulation, used
by many athletes. He also suggests that most cancer in firefighters is due not
to exposure to inhaled carcinogens, but to their exposure to EMFs and
radiofrequency radiation (RFR) from mobile two-way radio communications devices
and firehouse and fire vehicle radio transmitters.
Milham has even linked an increased incidence of cancer among teachers at one
California school with high frequency voltage transients in the school
environment. According to a study published in the American Journal of
Industrial Medicine, the attributable risk of cancer associated with electrical
exposures at the school was 64 percent, and a single year of employment at the
school increased a teacher's cancer risk by 21 percent. It is interesting to
note, too, that Dr. Milham's work has shown that the Old-Order Amish, who don't
use electricity, have lower rates of diabetes, heart disease, suicide and
cancer than would be expected. They also have uncommonly low levels of
neurodegenerative disease and not one case of ADHD on record.
Camilla Rees of ElectromagneticHealth.org says: "Dr. Milham's work suggests
society may have overlooked one of the most important underlying root causes of
illness. The health sector's focus on lifestyle, chemical pollutants, genetics
and the like, may have missed the role of every day electromagnetic fields from
electrification. It is now clear we must assess all sources of electromagnetic
radiation in our midst, not just wireless communication technologies, but also
electric and magnetic fields, and high frequency transients on electrical
wiring, known as "dirty electricity."
How Dirty Electricity Is Affecting Your Health
It's important to remember that you are an electrical being; the human body is
composed of conductive and semi-conductive materials, and cells in your body
can react to EMFs as a harmful invader, just like they do to other
environmental toxins. Your body is a complex communication device where cells,
tissues, and organs "talk" to each other to perform basic functions. At each of
these levels, the communication includes finely tuned bio-electrical
transmitters and receivers, which are tuned like tuning into a radio station.
What happens when you expose a radio antenna to a significant amount of external
noise? You get static from the noise -- and that is what is happening to your
body in today's "electrosmog" environment. Two of the more well-known
biological impacts from electrosmog are the interruption of the brain wave
pattern leading to behavior issues and the interference to your body's entire
communication system (cytoskeleton) leading to abnormal neurological function,
such as dementia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and fibromyalgia.
At a cellular level, your cell membrane receptors (the brain of the cell)
recognize electromagnetic fields at very low levels of exposure producing a
stress response similar to that produced by exposure to heavy metals or toxic
chemicals. This can cause the cell membrane to go from an "active" or permeable
state where it allows nutrients in and toxins out, to an "inactive" state where
the cell membrane is impermeable.
During a normal day, your cells will change states thousands of time, but when
under constant environmental stress, the membranes can be locked in the
inactive state. This is often referred to as "oxidative stress" as nutrients
are able to enter into the cell, while toxins (free radicals) are not allowed
We are not really sure what the "trigger" is that causes health problems from
EMFs and other forms of electricity, but we know that the electrosmog is
definitely a contributing factor. For health, your body must be able to
communicate within itself, that is, to be in harmony with the natural rhythm of
the earth and all life.
Technology Can Seriously Damage Your Health
Did you know that technology can seriously damage your health? Tragically most
people still don't get it. The World Health Organisation (W.H.O.) states very
clearly that there are serious health risks from current exposure levels to
electronic fields coming from wi-fi, laptops, mobile phones and ipads. Exposure
to them increases the risk of cancer, brain tumours, autism, diabetes, chronic
fatigue, hay fever and depression.
They state that we are being kept in the dark about these effects due to the
fact that "present sources of funding bias the interpretation of findings
towards rejection of evidence of possible health risks" Is it more than just a
coincidence that the health of billions of people are being affected since the
introduction of technology in the 1980's.
A staggering 220 million people now suffer from diabetes. This is set to rise to
400 million by the year 2030. Do you think that it can't happen to you or your
children? Think again. Autism is more common than childhood cancer, diabetes
and AIDS combined. Approximately 70 million people worldwide are affected by
autism. This number has increased 6,000% in the past 20 years. Why have we
suddenly become intolerant to food? Is it just the chemicals we put in our food
that have caused it? THINK AGAIN.
Over 270 million people in the world now suffer from food allergies.
Approximately 3 million of them are children under the age of 18. That is a
400% increase worldwide in 20 years. 1 in 4 European children under the age of
10 suffers from an allergy. Potentially fatal peanut allergies now affect one
in 70 children. An estimated 300 million people worldwide suffer from Asthma,
with 250,000 deaths attributed to the disease. That is a 300% increase in
asthma in the last 20 years.
About 10 million people in the U.S. alone suffer from ADHD (Attention Deficit
Hypersensitivity Disorder). Worldwide there was a 400% increase in ADHD in the
last 20 years. 2.5m people now suffer from Multiple Sclerosis ONE IN FIVE
people in the world suffers from hay fever which is expected to triple between
now and 2030.
Planning to have children, - you had better hurry up. The average man has lost
53% of sperm production over the last 50 years. At the present rate of decline
it will take 70 years before the sperm count goes to zero. 31% of pregnancies
now end in miscarriage. This number increased between 2005 and 2009 by 15%. In
the same period 25% more women received treatment for infertility. 80% of the
world's population suffer from sleeping disorders. In the U.S. 40 million
people suffer from some type of sleeping disorder.
Could It Just Be A Coincidence That:
• Mobile Phone Sales Rose From 50 Million In 1995 To 5 Billion By 2010
• There Were 1 Billion Pc's In Use Around The World In 2008
• This Number Will Double By 2013 To 2 Billion
• By 2012 There Are Expected To Be 14 Billion Devices Connected To The Internet
• 6.1 Trillion Text Messages Were Said To Be Sent In 2010
Do you want to know who benefits from all of our bad health - drug companies!
One of the world's largest drug companies, Pfizer, saw profits rise from $10.02
Billion dollars in 1995 to $67.8 billion dollars in 2010. Worldwide sales of
drugs in 2012 were a staggering $830 billion dollars. Global Pharmaceutical
sales are expected to reach $1.1 Trillion dollars by 2014
Technology can damage your health and only one group of people benefit. IT IS
NOT YOU. Anybody could be one of the next two billion sufferers, your sister,
brother, mother, father, grandparent, grandchild, friend or colleague. OR EVEN
YOU. Read more about this at Blinded by Science www.blindedbyscience.co.uk You
will be shocked and amazed to discover you have been told only half the truth
about science and how it affects your health.
Matthew Silverstone is the author of Blinded by science,
www.blindedbyscience.co.uk a book that will completely change your attitude to
your health. Blinded by Science offers a theory which when applied to factors
like water, plants, the Sun and the Moon all seems to make perfect sense. As
simple as it sounds, it is the theory that everything vibrates. The book
explains that everything vibrates from the nucleus of an atom to the molecules
of our blood, our brain, sound, plants, animals, all the way into outer space.
Once this basic principle is understood, everything suddenly becomes clear.
Once you apply this theory to the world around you, you will be astounded by
what you learn. Find out more at www.blindedbyscience.co.uk
