The epidemics of obesity and diabetes most apparent in recent years had their origins with Thomas Edison’s development of distributed electricity in New York City in 1882. His original direct current (DC) generators suffered serious commutator brush arcing which is a major source of high-frequency voltage transients (dirty electricity). From the onset of the electrical grid, electrified populations have been exposed to dirty electricity. Diesel generator sets are a major source of dirty electricity today and are used almost universally to electrify small islands and places unreachable by the conventional electric grid. This accounts for the fact that diabetes prevalence, fasting plasma glucose and obesity are highest on small islands and other places electrified by generator sets and lowest in places with low levels of electrification like sub-Saharan Africa and east and Southeast Asia.

Obesity epidemic caused by EMF exposures in the home according
to startling new research Thursday, July 11, 2013 by: Lloyd Burrell
*Tags: obesity epidemic , dirty energy , electropollution *
(NaturalNews) Two-thirds of the U.S. population is overweight, and
about one-quarter to one-third of adults are obese. Fact. Poor diet and
a lack of exercise are at fault, the experts say. But what if the cause
of this epidemic was something even more insidious? What if that which
is considered the lifeblood of our modern day lives, electricity or
more precisely dirty electricity, was really to blame? The answer to
these questions is an unequivocal yes. At least according to Samuel
Milham, MD, MPH, author of an alarming new study on the link between
obesity and exposure to dirty electricity (a form of electromagnetic
field pollution). According to Dr. Milham's study just published in
*Electromagnetic Biology and Medicine*, EMFs (in the form of dirty
electricity), are contributing not only to obesity, but to a myriad of
other health concerns which plague Americans in today's disease-ridden
society. Dr. Milham found evidence of the link between dirty
electricity exposures and obesity and diabetes through analyzing
worldwide health metric data. He noticed that many small islands known
for having the highest BMIs (marker for obesity), worldwide in addition
to the highest incidence of diabetes did not draw their energy supply
from an electrical grid. An alternative source of energy was commonly
used, a diesel generator set, known to be a major source of dirty
electricity. What is dirty electricity?Dirty electricity, defined as
electrical pollution contaminating the electrical grid, stems from the
use of many commonplace items found in or around the home but also from
the poor design of our electrical distribution system. As Dr. Milham
says ''the high obesity levels in the US is not surprising, because the
U.S. uses the earth as the major conduit for neutral return currents.''
Studies show the human body suffers adverse affects at a cellular level
from this constant exposure to dirty electricity. Combine this with the
fact that there are actually more overweight and obese people living in
the United States than people who are living within a healthy weight
range and Dr. Milham's conclusions start to make sense. Electricity and
the diseases of civilizationIn his book *Dirty Electricity:
Electrification and the Diseases of Civilization*, Dr. Milham reveals
that as electricity spread throughout the United States in the 20th
century, so did other diseases of civilization including: • ADHD •
Suicide • Cancer • Obesity • Asthma • Diabetes • Cardiovascular disease
Affected populationsIs it a coincidence that locations utilizing less
electricity have the lowest levels of these exact same diseases?
Unlikely. When comparing the levels of exposure to dirty electricity
between the Amish and non-Amish populations the findings cannot be
ignored. The Amish people are well-known for their lack of dependency
on electrical power. The upshot is a population with half the rate of
diabetes and cancer and virtually no obesity or ADHD. Other recent
findings stemming from a reduction of or less exposure to dirty
electricity found: • The number of children requiring albuterol (asthma
inhalers) decreased from 37 to only three in one U.S. schoolhouse. • A
lower risk of cancer for California middle-school teachers. How to
reduce exposureUtility companies should be made to face up to their
responsibilities. Supplying consumers with a highly polluted
electricity supply which puts populations at considerable risk of harm
is not acceptable. Householders need to act to protect their home and
work environment as much as possible. By eliminating certain devices in
the home which contribute to this problem, and introducing capacitive
filters, many home and work environments can be effectively cleaned up.
