There has been mounting medical and scientific evidence of the grave biological dangers to humans from so-called “Smart” Meters exposure that are being installed by the hundreds of thousands all over North America and Europe. Scientists have been documenting the EMF/RF exposure effects for decades.
Smart meters are a type of meter that can be used to measure your electric, gas or water usage.
The utility companies main argument for installing smart meters is that they save them money because they no longer have to employ people to go out and read your meter. The downside is your health is put at risk!
Daniel Hirsch, California radiation expert and UCSD instructor, criticizes the industry-influenced CCST report that incorrectly minimized smart meter risks, based on the widely distributed industry-generated Tell Associates report. CCST is a partner with US DOE (US Dept. of Energy), funder and promoter of smart meters. In the following analysis, Hirsch informs us that one smart meter can provide up to the full body radiation exposure of 160 cell phones; in an interview (video), Hirsch provides the average exposure, equivalent to the full body exposure from 100 cell phones. This completely debunks the Tell Associates report, which was paid for by Pacific Gas & Electric.
Some of the reported symptoms of exposure to smart meters EMF radiation include, but not limited to:
- Sleep problems
- Stress, agitation, anxiety, irritability
- Ringing in the ears
- Concentration and memory problems
- Fatigue, muscle and physical weakness
- Heart palpitations and chest pain
- Arthritis and other bodily pains
- Respiratory problems, sinus, asthma
- Endocrine disorders
The seriousness of Smart Meter electromagnetic radiation pollution increases because of “dirty electricity” Smart Meters send into homes through electrical wiring. Furthermore, those Smart Meter EMFs are constant 24/7/365 with no escaping from them, and no turning them off!
