Abstract

 Effects of Extraneous Electricity on Dairy Cattle, Other Animals, and Humans - A Guide for Dairymen, Veterinarians, and Investigators of Stray Voltage

This study resulted from requests by four farm families in Sanilac County, MI, who were having extraneous electricity problems which the power company could not find. Their animals and they themselves were having health problems. All four filed complaints with the Sanilac County Health Department. Simultaneously, and again not found by the power company, the author responded to families suffering from electromagnetic fields (EMF) emitted from Smart Meters and from Wi-Fi and iPads in schools and found dangerous levels of high-frequency electricity. Symptoms reported agreed with those from the literature review in an earlier study I coauthored. Symptoms included: drowsiness, malaise and headache, mood swings, eye problems, poor concentration, convulsions, fainting, vertigo and tinnitus, numbness and tingling, nausea and flatulence, noise sensitivity, and alteration in appetite. Heart problems, thyroid cancers, other cancers, and glaucoma were also being treated for some who were exposed. In the cases studied for this article, Graham-Stetzer Meters and Filters were used to help remedy the problems discovered. Milk production increased and a child’s health improved following insertion of G-S Filters. An earlier peer-reviewed study by this author with associates found animal behavior and milk production were affected by electrical shocks below adopted standards after investigating 12 dairy farms in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Minnesota. Data from 1705 cows and 939 data points revealed significant negative effects of milk/cow/day from event-recorder measurements for eight independent electrical variables. Public Utility Commissions, commissioned to make sure electricity distribution is safe, use 500-Ohm resistors in test circuits, underestimating effects of non-sinusoidal, high-frequency voltage/current common on power lines, and the equipment they use measures only peak voltage, not peak-to-peak. These studies prove that utilities need to update their equipment to discover and remove electro-magnetic fields.
