Many years ago before the discovery of solid state devices now found in all electronic equipment, the
electricity that powers our homes, buildings, and factories was like a meadow in the country, gently
varying, quiet, harmonious and clean. Today our electricity is no longer harmonious, quiet, gently varying
and clean. It is filled with abrupt changes in character described as dirty electricity or dirty power. This
dirt is much like noisy static you might hear on a radio playing wonderful classical music. The underlying
music is there and it could be beautiful and relaxing, but all that static is too irritating, and you change the
station or turn off the radio.
Unfortunately, with dirty electricity turning it off is not
possible. Dirty electricity is everywhere in our
environment. You are generating this dirt in your very own
house, as are your neighbors and the office down the block
and the factory in the industrial part of town.
The dirt is produced by the workings of all of our electronic
equipment like, computers, TVs, radios, microwaves, light
dimmers, digital clocks and cell phone chargers.
The dirt follows the electrical lines around your house and out of your house following the wires that supply
electricity to your house. The neighbor’s dirt and the office’s dirt, and the factory’s dirt follows the same
paths and ends up in every house, office and factory.
We have assumed, until recently, that this form of energy is not biologically active. However, recent
research tells us that this dirty electricity is biologically active. When filters to reduce the dirty electricity
were installed in homes and schools, symptoms such as chronic fatigue, depression, headaches, body aches
and pains, ringing in the ears, dizziness, diabetes, impaired sleep, memory loss, and confusion were
Based on this early research it is estimated that as much as 50% of the population may be hypersensitive to
dirty electricity; children may be more sensitive than adults and dirty electricity in schools may be
interfering with education and possibly contributing to disruptive behavior associated with attention deficit
disorder (ADD); dirty electricity may elevate plasma glucose levels among diabetics, and exacerbate
symptoms for those with multiple sclerosis and tinnitus.
Work in this area is in the early stages, however, measurements of dirty electricity using a special meter
sensitive to the dirt show the following:
|Meter Reading (GS units)
|Less than 20
|20 to 30
Special filters can be installed in certain electrical outlets to clean up the dirty electricity in each home or office.
Reduce Blood Sugar Levels in Diabetics, Multiple Sclerosis Symptoms, and Headaches
Graham/Stetzer filters significantly reduce radio frequency electrical noise on indoor wiring
generated by computers, energy efficient lighting, dimmer switches, and entertainment units
within the home or workplace and transported into buildings by power lines from neighbouring
property. The resultant improvements in power quality in homes and in schools are associated
with fewer and less severe headaches, more energy, lower blood sugar levels for diabetics, and
improved balance for those with multiple sclerosis.

Historical evidence that residential
electrification caused the emergence of the childhood leukemia peak
A peak in childhood leukemia, ages two through four, emerged de novo in the 1920s in the United
Kingdom and slightly later in the United States (US). Electrification in US farm and rural areas lagged behind urban
areas until 1956. In recent years, childhood leukemia has been associated with residential electromagnetic fields.
Dirty Electricity and Electrical Hypersensitivity:
Five Case Studies
Deteriorating power quality is becoming increasingly common in developed countries. Poor
power quality, also known as dirty electricity, refers to a combination of harmonics and
transients generated primarily by electronic devices and by non-linear loads. We have
assumed, until recently, that this form of energy is not biologically active. However, when
Graham/Stetzer™ filters were installed in homes and schools, symptoms associated with
electrical hypersensitivity were
