Release Body: (DEPERE, WI)—With just a few months before
President-elect Barack Obama takes over the White House, one expert
is questioning whether his plan for infrastructure reform is complete.
ago, Obama called for the creation of a National Infrastructure
Reinvestment Bank to help rebuild America’s roads and bridges.
Russ Allen, author of the new book Electrocution of America:
Is Your Utility Company Out to Kill You?, says the plan
ought to include provisions for dealing with a little-known but
serious form of electrical pollution called “stray current.”
“The way that utility companies in this country have
built their distribution systems allows stray current to run through
American homes and infrastructure on its way back to substations,”
says Allen. “That stray current has killed people as
well as livestock, and could be taxing the healthcare system by
More and more lawsuits across the nation are being won by plaintiffs
who are suing utility companies over this dangerous issue.
Mr. Allen says that Obama’s plan should include legislation
that mandates utility companies return stray current to their
substations on a third wire, just as the builders of homes are
required to install outlets with a third wire. “If stray
current isn’t stopped, Americans will continue to suffer
its effects,” says Mr. Allen.
Some states, including Wisconsin, Michigan and New York, have
already tried to pass legislation requiring that utility companies
monitor stray current but many of those attempts have fallen short.
The attempted legislation followed studies that confirmed the
dangers of stray current.
Electrocution of America is Mr. Allen’s attempt to combat
stray voltage and the utilities that allow it. In his book, he
points out that stray current, or stray voltage as it is sometimes
called, can have devastating effects on people, including:
• An increase in the blood sugar levels of diabetics
• An increase in the severity of the symptoms associated
with multiple sclerosis
• An increase in the incidents of ADD in children
• An increase in the numbers of fibromyalgia sufferers
There is even evidence of a reduction in the milk production of
