Protect Your Home, Family And Pets From Stray Electricity
Protect your home, family and pets from stray electricity
By: Arbor Books
“Throughout the US, courts have been flooded with cases about electrical pollution, which affects Americans on a daily basis—though most will never know until it is too late,” says Russ Allen, author of new book Electrocution of America: Is Your Utility Company Out to Kill You?
According to the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, stray currents affect people through:
• Copper floor and wall piping in showers
• Transformer connections by swimming pools
• Sidewalks carrying currents through the ground
• Lamp posts, manholes, gratings and junction boxes
• Office buildings, hospitals, barns and other structures
“Since electrical pollution is both colorless and odorless, it’s hard to completely protect your health and your home,” says Mr. Allen. “Your local utility supplier needs to fix their stray voltage problem in order to stop the flow of current through your home.”
Stray currents can poison your home. Even if you completely turn off the power, the electrical current still exists in water pipes, shower drains, copper floors and basement concrete.
Stray current also exists in public areas. Pedestrians should distance themselves from street and traffic lamps, and avoid metal grates and manholes when possible. According to infraShock.com, you should not lean metal objects, such as bicycles, against streetlights. They also advise dog walkers to choose non-metal leashes.
Stray electric currents can have harmful effects on animal health and productivity, and in recent years, American dairy farmers have attempted to claim compensation for damage it has caused to their yields and stock.
Mr. Allen discovered that stray currents were the cause of his dairy farm’s declining milk production, and the mysterious illnesses and deaths that plagued his cows.
“Too many farmers have lost what they’ve worked for because of a lack of action,” says Mr. Allen. “For some reason, the people in power just don’t want to rectify the ongoing problem of stray electricity.”
Russ Allen is one of the heirs to the Allen Dairy Farm outside of Green Bay, Wisconsin, and a leader in the movement against the electrical pollution of animals.
