Household 50 Hz/60 Hz Electricity Endangers People



Although this paper is applicable to most countries of the world, its focus here is on Canada and this country’s standard utility, mains or power line alternating current (A/C) frequency of 60 Hz – on which all wireless radio products and other electronics are dependent. The purpose of this paper is to raise people’s awareness that there is irrefutable scientific evidence showing that 60 Hz causes illness and premature deaths in humans because it disrupts and damages Mother Nature’s own brainwave frequencies found in every person’s central nervous system (i.e., their brain and spinal cord) which allows people to function as healthy, living, thinking bio-electrical beings.

1n 1891, Westinghouse engineers, not Nicola Tesla, selected 60 Hz as the frequency for A/C power distribution. Tesla quit working for Westinghouse, in part, because of his disagreement with them over the company’s decision to use 60 Hz.

In the late 1890s, the Second Industrial Revolution, also known as the Technological Revolution, of which electric motors were the heart, was in full swing across Canada and demand for A/C electricity was high in all regions of the country. Consequently, from a purely business perspective, it became imperative for early investors in this nascent industry to transport A/C electricity as cost-effectively as possible across the nation, which proved to be at a frequency of 60 Hz at 110 Volts A/C. This was strictly an engineering and economics decision, one based on man’s engineering knowledge at that time, when Industry, governments and health officials all knew nothing of human brainwaves and could not know that this revolutionary new and universally welcome technology brought with it invisible, silent, odorless and tasteless health hazards, especially to those who were most exposed to it.
Health and Welfare Canada was established in 1944, becoming Health Canada in 1993. They and all provincial and territorial governments have consistently failed to protect the safety and health of Canadians from the hazards of non-ionizing radiation, specifically, the harmful health effects of non-thermal electro-magnetic field (EMF) radiation that is emitted by anything in which alternating current is flowing. These hazards were discovered by the Soviet Union and its Eastern European allies, but were – and still are – ignored/denied by Western governments. Evidence of this can be seen in Health Canada’s globally-reviled Safety Code 6 (which shamefully has been adopted by all 13 jurisdictions in Canada), which does not even mention power line frequency (60 Hz) EMF radiation, even though Health Canada continues to endorse magnetic fields of up to 2,000 mG (milliGauss) for the Public and 10,000 mG for Workers! By comparison, non-industry scientists say that magnetic fields in homes, schools, etc. should not exceed even one (1) mG. Such is the influence of the electric power generation industry.


In democratic countries, one presumes that governments ensure that all technologies, especially those that emit radiation and are used continuously by, on and/or around, the public, are first independently tested and proven to be safe – by qualified experts having no ties to industry – before they are allowed to be used in society. In matters concerning non-thermal EMF radiation, Canadian federal and provincial governments have consistently failed to do this! The most glaring example of this was Canada’s electric power generation industry’s unilateral decision to adopt the North American standard frequency of 60 Hz electricity as the frequency to be used to provide A/C electricity to people across Canada. Epidemiological studies have shown that those who lived in New York or most other cities in the country at the turn of the century, had a life expectancy in the low-50s; whereas, If you were Amish and didn’t use electricity or if you lived in rural Mississippi or rural New York State, your longevity was in the 70s.”

Humans and All Living Things are Bioelectrical Beings
Nature has provided each person and all living things with an exquisitely delicate, extremely minute electrical system, as is evidenced below:

  • Doctors send patients to have an EEG (electroencephalogram) so that the doctor can see how well the patient’s brain is working on the different brainwave frequencies;

  • Doctors send patients to have an ECG or EKG (electrocardiogram) so that the doctor can see the electrical activity of the patient’s heart.

  • In 1975, the first detection of a weak, external magnetic field produced by activity of the human brain was reported by Dr. David Cohen (Massachusetts Institute of Technology).

  • The average human heart (at rest) beats anywhere from 60-100 times per minute, meaning that it has a frequency of about 1-1.67 Hz.

A Human’s Central Nervous System
A human’s CNS consists of the brain and spinal cord, eyes, ears, sensory organs of taste, smell, sensory receptors in skin, joints, muscles and other parts of the body. Diseases of the CNS include: Alzheimer’s disease, Bell’s palsy, Cancers, Cerebral palsy, Epilepsy, Motor neurone disease (MND), Multiple sclerosis, Neurofibromatosis; Parkinson’s disease, Sciatica, Shingles. (Readers are also encouraged to re-familiarize themselves with a human’s Immune System.)

Human Brainwave Frequencies

Since the mid-1920s scientists have known that the human brain comprises billions of cells called neurons which communicate with each other via the following electrical brainwaves:

  • DELTA (0.1 to 3.5 Hz);

  • THETA (4-8 Hz);

  • ALPHA (8-12 Hz);

  • BETA (above 12 Hz) … “For example: Our brain uses 13Hz (high alpha or low beta) for “active” intelligence. Often we find individuals who exhibit learning disabilities and attention problems having a deficiency of 13Hz activity in certain brain regions that affects the ability to easily perform sequencing tasks and math calculations.”

  • GAMMA (above 30 Hz)
    “Previous studies have suggested that Alzheimer’s patients have impairments of their gamma-frequency oscillations, which range from 25 to 80 Hz and are believed to contribute to brain functions such as attention, perception and memory.”
    Gamma brain waves are a frequency pattern of normal brain activity that measures between 25 and 100 Hz, with around 40 Hz being typical in humans.

Disease Epidemics (Partial List) Caused By or Linked to 60 Hz Electricity
Any responsible, competent government would be greatly concerned and take timely action to find out the cause of any disease epidemic, especially those that strain health care budgets in all jurisdictions in Canada. But not Health Canada! As an absolute minimum, a responsible government would have invoked the Precautionary Principle in 2002 on hearing that IARC (International Agency for Research on Cancer) had classified EMF radiation a Class 2B or “Possible” carcinogen. Again, Health Canada did nothing! Nor did any Canadian province. Instead of putting the onus on Industry to prove that 60 Hz is safe to people, Health Canada puts the onus on the public to prove conclusively that 60 Hz is NOT safe! Here are some frightening, incontrovertible facts, all of which point to the corruption in Canada’s federal and provincial governments and the electric power generation industry:

  • Cancers – Children and adolescents (ages 0 to 19)

  • In 2019, cancer is a major public health problem worldwide

  • In 2019, cancer is No. 2 cause of death in the United States.

  • In 2019, cancer is the leading cause of death by disease (leukemia, brain and ‘central nervous system,’ (See CNS, Pg. 2) tumors, and lymphomas in the U.S.

  • Cancer rates in young children are increasing worldwide.

  • In 2019, in the USA and countries around the world, over 11,000 children under 14 will be diagnosed with cancer of which more than 1,000 will die!

  • Heart Disease and Cancer – Adults, male & female

    Heart disease and cancer are the No.1 killers in USA (both of which are highly susceptible to man-made frequency radiation – especially frequencies on which the data/information is pulsed at or near the pulse repetition frequency (PRF) of human brainwave frequencies.

  • Alzheimer’s and Other Dementias – Adults in countries around the world

  • A recent 2019 study showed that it might be the No. 3 cause of death in the U.S.A.

  • Alzheimer’s and other dementias were responsible for 1 in 3 deaths of seniors in the U.S.

  • Two-thirds of American Alzheimer’s patients are women.

  • One in 10 people age 65 and older has Alzheimer’s dementia!

  • Alzheimer’s is projected to cripple America’s healthcare system

  • Alzheimer’s is the only leading cause of death that is still on the rise.

  • Between 2000 and 2016, deaths attributed to Alzheimer’s increased 139%!

  • Even in 2011, a “staggering 14.9% of Canada’s population” over 65 suffered from neurodegenerative disorders.

  • Even in 2011, these diseases cost Canadians $33 billion, which is expected to rise to $293 billion by 2040.

  • In 2018, Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias were the No.1 cause of death for women in England and Wales.

  • In 2018, Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias were the No. 2 cause of death for men in England and Wales;

  • For men aged 80 and over, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease is the No. 1 cause of death!

  • In 2018, 1 in 8 people died from dementia and of Alzheimer’s disease.

  • In Finland In 2010, 1 in 5 deaths of 80-year olds and older was caused by Alzheimer’s and related dementias.

  • In Finland in 2010, 69% of the deaths were women.

  • In Australia, in 2018, dementia was the 2nd leading cause of death!

  • In 2016, Dementia became No. 1 cause of deaths of Australian women!

  • In 2018, Dementia is estimated to have cost Australia more than $15 billion!

  • AutismChildren aged 3 to 17, U.S.A.

  • Two independent studies published in “Pediatrics” and “JAMA Pediatrics” estimate that 1 in 40 children in the U.S.A. has ASD (autism spectrum disorder).

  • Autism rate rises 43 percent in New Jersey. Researchers said 1 in 35 4-year-olds now suffer from autism!

World-Class Scientists Speak Out Against 50 Hz/60 Hz

  • Robert O. Becker, one of the world’s leading authorities on energy and medicine, and two-time Nobel nominee, writes in his book “Cross Currents – The Perils of Electropollution”: “At this time, the scientific evidence is absolutely conclusive: 60 hertz magnetic fields cause human cancer cells to permanently increase their rate of growth by as much as 1,600 percent and to develop more malignant characteristics.”

  • Magnetic Fields From Power Lines are Hazardous to Human Health.

    2.9 Biophysical Summary (Page 12) states, in part: “… observationally confirmed mechanisms for external ELF (extremely low frequency, more commonly known as “Power Line Frequency” [50 Hz/60 Hz]) signals to be resonantly absorbed in human tissue, especially the brain and heart, and cause reduced melatonin. Melatonin is the most potent naturally produced antioxidant that helps to protect cells from genetic damage that leads to cancer, neurological, cardiac and reproductive damage, illness and death.” (Please view the whole report for more compelling evidence.)

  • Hazardous Effects of 60 Hz EMFs
    Scientists have listed some of the hazardous effects 60 Hz magnetic fields have on the human brain, behavior and health, pineal gland, etc.

  • Frequency of 400 Hz Might be Safer to Humans
    Robert O. Becker, M.D. said: “It seems possible that a different power frequency—say 400 hertz instead of 60—might prove much safer.” A major part of the safety changes would consist of energy-efficiency reforms that would benefit the economy in the long run. These new directions would have been taken years ago but for the opposition of power companies concerned with their short-term profits, and a government unwilling to challenge them.”

  • In 1998, the U.S. National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS)
    NIEHS classified ELF (power line frequency – 50 Hz/60 Hz) magnetic fields a Possible carcinogen to humans and recommended “passive” regulatory action … and encouraged power utilities to voluntarily reduce exposure to people.”

  • The Great Power-Line Cover-up – How the Utilities and the Government Are Trying to Hide the Cancer Hazards Posed by EMFs written by award-winning investigative journalist, Paul Brodeur, of the New Yorker

  • Currents of Death – Power Lines, Computer Terminals, and the Attempt to Cover Up Their Threat to Your Health 1989. Also written by Paul Brodeur.

  • World’s Largest Insurance Companies Refuse to Insure Against EMFs

Since 1999, Lloyd’s of London has refused to insure anything that emits EMF radiation and has since been joined by Swiss Re.

It boggles the mind that today, even though we all know – or know of – someone who has died or currently suffers from some form of cancer, Alzheimer’s, autism, Parkinson’s, etc. mainstream news media, governments, industry and cancer agencies virtually never mention power line 50 Hz/60 Hz EMF radiation as being even a ‘possible’ cause of these terrible, heart-wrenching diseases and premature deaths. Even though scientists have known of the dangers of power line frequency EMFs for decades and have repeatedly warned all world governments, most have done nothing. Tragically for mankind, this highlights the power and influence of the self-regulated and profit-focused electric power generation industry compared to governments, which can change every few years and whose members generally are technologically-ignorant and whose ministers can also change frequently. The victims, sadly, are Canada’s entire unsuspecting and defenseless population.

In conclusion, informed people globally know that governments are rapidly running out of time. It is both imperative for and urgent that democratically-elected governments finally exercise dominion over electric power producers and subordinate the latter to government agencies that are adequately staffed with competent professionals, knowledgeable about the hazardous health effects of non-thermal EMFs, whose job it is to interject if/when necessary to protect the safety and health of the public. Provincial governments must finally put the onus on industries that produce EMFs to first prove (using independent, qualified EMF experts having no ties to industry) that their technologies are SAFE to be used by on and/or around people, of all ages, of all sizes, of all levels of wellness, on a 24/7/365 basis, in perpetuity;

It is equally imperative for the Government of Canada’s health agency and Canada’s entire healthcare industry to adopt the findings of non-industry scientists, such as: the European-based ICEMS (International Commission on Electromagnetic Safety), the BioInitiative 2017 Report, Physicians for Safe Technology, Scientists for Wired Technology, Canadians For Safe Technology (C4ST), Environmental Health Trust, etc. Also, the Government of Canada must immediately:

  • Invoke the Precautionary Principle on any existing technology that emits hazardous non-thermal EMF radiation;

  • Simultaneously seek counsel from internationally-respected, world-class EMF scientists (known to be free from industry influence) for their assistance / recommendations when faced with difficult and costly engineering, organizational or other decisions; and,

  • Apprehend and charge those responsible for this ever-increasing ‘Mother of all Crimes’ that embraces: 1) a crime against humanity, 2) a violation of every person’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms; and, 3) a violation of the Nuremburg Code.

Military BIO 
Captain (Retired) J.G. Flynn 
Serial No. 25614-G

I am a retired Canadian Armed Forces captain (commissioned from the ranks in what was then the Royal Canadian Navy) who spent 22 of my 26+ years in the ‘Forces’ in Electronic Warfare (EW) and Signals Intelligence (SIGINT), the former of which included two years in National Defense Headquarters (NDHQ) Ottawa, in the Directorate of Electronic Warfare (DEW). In EW I worked closely with U.S. and NATO armies and, of my own initiative, attended a major NATO army EW officers’ course in Anzio, Italy, and participated in a major NATO army EW field exercise in Germany. I accepted invitations to visit both the U.S. Pentagon and, subsequently, Fort Bragg, North Carolina (the US Army’s principal EW base). Earlier still, I conducted Radio Warfare/EW at sea aboard two Canadian warships. In SIGINT, I was the Executive Officer and Operations Officer for two years at one of Canada’s largest and most sensitive radio intelligence-gathering stations, where I employed some 200+ specially-trained radio operators who conducted both COMINT and ELINT under my direction. Throughout this period, I worked closely with the USA’s NSA and Britain’s GCHQ.

Although I finally retired in 2005, since 2008 I have spent most of my time researching, writing and speaking out publicly on all aspects of this unbelievably evil issue caused by the corrupt US military-industrial complex. History will record that this ongoing corruption now literally threatens all life on earth! Tragically, too few Americans heeded then U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower, in 1961, when he warned them to be on guard against the emergence of a corrupt US M-I-C!

On leaving the Forces, in my second career, which also lasted 26-years, I was extremely fortunate to have a client list that eventually included the Saudi Arabian government plus other large multinational corporations who collectively had major operations and/or projects in various countries on five continents. Consequently, I quickly embraced all things wireless: a Blackberry cell phone, Wi-Fi routers (in the office and at home); cordless phones (both locations), microwave ovens (both locations), laptop computer (wireless, of course), Bluetooth cell phone and heated seats in my vehicles, electric in-floor radiant heat in my homes, not to mention the silent and invisible EMF/EMR I was exposed to in my working and living environments.

In the fall of 2016, cancer very nearly took my life! Out-of-the-blue, I was suddenly stricken with a particularly virulent form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma – which, in hindsight, I attribute solely to my own indefensible stupidity and naiveté in presuming that Health Canada had tested and verified that all wireless electronic products on the market were ‘safe’ for the public to use! My weight quickly dropped from about 175 lbs to less than 130 lbs, and I required an oxygen machine to breathe day and night! In retrospect, were it not for an excellent medical team and for my beloved wife’s tireless attention and endless nursing, and for her stubborn determination not to let me go, I would not be here to fight this Mother of all Crimes!

  1. Truely Thank You for Your Contrubution to Mother Earth, the People and Our Next Generations . . . .
    I Reside in South Africa and as we Know tge PoWERED Business Associates at the Top, WORLD Wide i Would like to Challege this and Try Them and Their Companies for These Hideous Crimes . . . .

    Any Suggustions how i Can Go About This?
    a Mandate? A Government Study? Time is on Their Side, and All They Want is HIGH end Tech Advancement for their Bio and Nuclear Advancement in Weapons for Their GREEd and POWER Status for Space Avalation and Advance Motor Tech.

    I Do Know what im Up Against. Hoping ive Reached Out to Someone That Is an Idealist, who Still Conforms to the Well Being of this Planet
