Medical Hypotheses Journal Publishes Analysis Showing Chronic Diseases of Our Times Linked to Electrification Not LifeStyle

A new study by epidemiologist Sam Milham, MD, MPH shows that diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes and suicide are linked to electrification. Analyzing health demographic data going back decades, Dr. Milham shows that populations without electrification experienced less disease than in urban areas with electrification, and that rural death rates correlated with levels of electrical service for most causes examined.


The upside, he concludes, is that many of these diseases may be preventable, but the dowside is that we are increasing electromagnetic fields significantly today. Milham says, “The explosive recent increase in radio-frequency radiation and high frequency transients sources, from cell phones and towers, terrestrial antennas, WiFi and Wi-Max telecommunication systems, broadband internet over power lines, and personal electronic equipment may be leading to a new 21st Century epidemic much like the 20th Century electromagnetic field epidemic”.
