Report to Michigan Oversight Committee of Michigan Legislature
December 2, 2014
I, Donald Hillman, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus, Animal Science, Michigan State University, have helped over 100 farmers with problems from stray voltage and together with co-authers have proven (peer reviewed, See Exhibit 1) that the Michigan Public Service Commission and the power companies measure only Vp (Voltage peak) current, not Vp-p (Voltage peak-peak). Therefore they miss half or more of the radiation (See Exhibit 2).
My first experience with Smart Meters was in April of 2012 when a farmer who had been involved in 2 Stray Voltage Court Cases, winning both, and who suffers from Thyroid Cancer came to my home and told me of his soon-to-be granddaughter who would be fine at her grandmother’s home in Haslett, MI, but became erratic when in her own playroom & bedroom in Ferndale, MI. He asked me if I thought it might be “Stray Voltage.” I was ill at the time, so I told him to take my measuring instruments and filters and find out! The little girl’s thyroid according to Beaumont Hospital had become inactive! This case was reported in my article, Effects of Extraneous Electricity on Dairy Cattle, Other Animals, and Humans – A Guide for Dairymen, Veterinarians, and Investigators of Stray Voltage (See Exhibit 3). It has been peer reviewed, and is In Print by SciTechnol in their Journal of Veterinary Science & Medical Diagnosis. Recently during an educational meeting on Smart Meters at the Hannah Community Center in East Lansing, Michigan, I measured 1208 G-S frequencies and demonstrated filtering with a G-S Filter as used in Exhibit 3.

Since my retirement from Michigan State University in 1982, I have been continually called to measure dirty electricity. It has been hard on my health, I have had 2 quad-ruple by-pass surgeries, diabetes, surgery on both eyes for pressure build-up, prostate cancer, a stroke, and cancer on the lower eyelids of both eyes. My stroke occurred while measuring radiation, October 23, 2012, from Smart Meters at 4 homes in Ann Arbor, MI.
I worked with Attorney General Michael Moody in MPSC Case # 11684 and his briefs and exceptions to Judge Nickerson were excellent. He reported the problem accurately, but the MPSC voted him down. Attorney General Bill Schuette has “argued that residential customers should be given a meaningful and fair opportunity to opt out of having a smart meter installed without being penalized by unwarranted and excessive charges.” (See Exhibit 4)
Finally, the American Academy of Environmental Medicine has been studying and treating the effects of the environment on health for over 50 years and have prepared a Human Health Position Paper Summary (See Exhibit 5). Please read it and take the required action to make our State more healthy by your prompt action!
