For the tinfoil undies brigade
Let’s start out by noting that the field of “environmental medicine/clinical ecology” has its critics, and that it’s not recognized as a medical specialty by the American Board of Medical Specialties.
That said, the battle over the safety of smart meters ratcheted up a notch last week, after the American Academy of Environmental Medicine released a report titled “Electromagnetic and Radiofrequency Fields Effect on Human Health” — calling for “an immediate caution on Smart Meter installation due to potentially harmful RF (radiofrequency) exposure” and “accommodation for health considerations regarding EMF (electromagnetic field) and RF exposure, including exposure to wireless Smart Meter technology.”
“In the last five years with the advent of wireless devices, there has been a massive increase in radiofrequency (RF) exposure from wireless devices as well as reports of hypersensitivity and diseases related to electromagnetic field and RF exposure,” the report says. “Multiple studies correlate RF exposure with diseases such as cancer, neurological disease, reproductive disorders, immune dysfunction, and electromagnetic hypersensitivity.”
