DIRTY ELECTRICITY DIRTY
Dirty Electricity refers to powerful, erratic high frequency electrical energy traveling along wiring in buildings where only standard 50/60-Hertz AC electricity should be. Also called electromagnetic interference (EMI) or electrical “noise”, this electrical pollution can contain up to 2,500 times the energy of standard electricity and is a fast-growing source of electro-pollution in homes, schools, and businesses today.
Dirty Electricity is created by modern electronics, computers, appliances, energy-efficient lights, and other devices that run on electricity. Why? Because many of these devices no longer use standard AC electricity “as is.” Instead, they must change or “manipulate” electrical current in one way or another in order to operate.
For example, many electrical devices today must convert standard 50/60-Hertz AC electricity (alternating current) into other forms of electricity [such as low voltage direct current (DC) or higher frequency AC] in order to operate. And, many devices now draw power from wiring intermittently, in short bursts, rather continuously, by turning the flow of power to a device “on” and “off” repeatedly, sometimes thousands of times per second.
These processes interrupt the smooth flow of standard AC electricity, creating harmonics and erratic surges/spikes of electrical energy known as voltage transients.
Once created, this unusable “dirty electricity” spreads throughout a building and even to other buildings via wiring and power lines. As it travels, it may radiate potentially harmful electromagnetic fields (EMF) into environments where we live, learn, work, and more.
Dirty electricity can interfere with the proper functioning of appliances and electronic equipment, and more importantly, with natural electrical processes within the human body.
IMPACT OF DIRTY ELECTRICITY ON HEALTH AND WELL-BEING
When suffering from exposure to Dirty Electricity the symptoms are wide ranging and diverse.
- Physical and mental fatigue
- Deterioration of cognitive functions
- Muscle spasms
- Numbness and tingling
- Increased body temperature
