While this study links chemical pollution to extreme and debilitating
weight gain, one American expert wonders if electrical pollution
might be having the same effect on children in the USA.
Russ Allen, author of the new book Electrocution of America:
Is Your Utility Company Out to Kill You?, says, “Isn’t
it time to conduct non-utility-funded studies here in America
to see what kind of effects stray electricity is having on our
Stray high voltage is current that travels through the earth on
its way back to the substation. Up to eighty percent of this stray
voltage travels through our homes, offices, schools, farms, streets
and playgrounds. This means that children as well as adults, including
pregnant women, are highly exposed to electrical pollution in
every day life.
Stray voltage has been linked to shocks and even death in humans
In the Barcelona study, it was clearly shown that exposure to
a range of common chemicals while in a mother’s womb can
cause a baby to grow up fat. The researchers speculated that pollutants
may have made the mothers diabetic, which would increase the chances
of their children becoming obese.
Mr. Allen’s concern is that electrical pollution can produce
the same insidious results.
“Stray voltage might be having profoundly negative effects
on people’s bodies,” he says. “California
has taken steps to deal with this form of pollution, but only
recently. And they are the only state doing so. It’s time
the rest of the country’s politicians and public health
officials took this threat to our national health seriously.”
Russ Allen is a leader in the movement against electrical pollution.
He is also an advocate for increasing unbiased government and
academic studies of stray voltage’s harmful effects on humans
and animals. He won a multimillion-dollar lawsuit against Wisconsin
Public Service for the damage the utility company caused because
of the poor design of its electrical distribution system—a
design that is common across North America.
