Overview

When Thomas Edison began wiring New York City with a direct current electricity distribution system in the 1880s, he gave humankind the magic of electric light, heat, and power; in the process, though, he inadvertently opened a Pandora's Box of unimaginable illness and death.

Dirty Electricity tells the story of Dr. Samuel Milham, the scientist who first alerted the world about the frightening link between occupational exposure to electromagnetic fields and human disease. Milham takes readers through his early years and education, following the twisting path that led to his discovery that most of the twentieth century diseases of civilization, including cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and suicide, are caused by electromagnetic field exposure.

Dr. Milham warns that because of the recent proliferation of radio frequency radiation from cell phones and towers, terrestrial antennas, Wi-Fi and Wi-max systems, broadband internet over power lines, and personal electronic equipment, we may be facing a looming epidemic of morbidity and mortality. In Dirty Electricity, he reveals the steps we must take, personally and as a society, to coexist with this marvelous but dangerous technology.

"Dirty Electricity," the term applied to the dangerous and abnormal flow of electricity over the country's wiring systems that supplies electricity to all homes and businesses, is also the title of the superb biographical account and life's work of one of the nation's most unrecognized scientific treasure's- the highly esteemed epidemiologist, Sam Milham, MD, PhD. Sam Milham has written an extremely accessible and easy to read account of the real and pressing hazards of manmade electromagnetic radiation that are increasingly and adversely impacting the health of the population from the increasing surge of high-tech electronics products into the market. This short but powerful book is a must read for any person living within the United States, as well as outside it, to gain invaluable information that may very well help to save their health, and the health of their family. The book not only fills the slot of a master class for those already grounded in the subject, but also serves as an excellent primer for those looking to get an introduction into this field, which is going to be the most important environmental topic of the twenty-first century. One of Milam's seminal research studies highlighted in the book exposes the link between childhood onset leukemia and the exposure to electricity in homes- a childhood disease that began to be recognized around the 1930s and 1940s within the United States, only as more and more homes were being supplied with electricity. While showcased in the book is one of Milham's most recent research studies that looked at a cancer cluster among teachers working at a middle school in the California desert in the mid-2000s, which put the problem of "dirty electricity" squarely on the map, as a silent threat that has been around for years, but which has only escalated with the escalating influx of high tech electronic devices in the home and in business. The study also serves as a sobering warning that similar incidences are almost certainly being played out and being unreported across the rest of the country. From this and a wide range of other studies Milham and others have painstakingly uncovered over the past decades, has come the conclusion that many of the twentieth, and now twenty-first, centuries most prevalent diseases, such as cancers, heart disease and diabetes have been linked with increased chronic exposure to manmade electromagnetic radiation sources, and are subsequently, to a great extent, preventable. This highly recommended book will be certain to stand among those written by such past luminaries that have researched or written in this field, including those of the late Robert O. Becker, MD, and by the very much alive and esteemed environmental writer, Paul Brodeur. G. Friedman

The “Silent Spring” of EMF's. In 2009 at the age of 39 I had become so ill that I was on prescription medications to keep me awake so that I could keep working and prescription sleep medications to enable me to sleep. I was working in the commercial and utility solar photovoltaic industry at the time. I was leading a life that resembled that of a zombie, I was not dead and I was not fully alive either. Sam Milham's book came out a year later and was an enlightenment. I have just read the second edition 2012 release and it is a revelation! I reported the electromagnetic field (EMF) problems that I discovered were affecting my health to OSHA and other government agencies, and it is very concerning that they appear to be engaging in a cover-up of the human health electromagnetic radiation (EMR) problems that have been known for decades! "Most people have no idea that OSHA is a ghost and has been so for years" Devra Davis. You are responsible for your own safety and health, and reading this book will go a long way to preventing you from becoming sick. I have recovered much of my health after years of what I now know was easily preventable sickness. No prescription medications needed. Thank you Dr. Milham!
