Angela Olstad almost quit being a fourth grade teacher and principal. Although she loved her job at the Mindoro school, she couldn’t handle being sick so often. The whole right side of her body went numb. She had terrible headaches, vision problems and felt completely exhausted at the end of a work day. She had never been able to teach for an entire week without calling in sick. This had gone on more than two years. She was about to quit when a cause had been found for her illness – electrical pollution. Electrical filters soon were placed throughout the school and now she says she feels better than ever.
