Report: Smart meters are bad for your health

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.”

  1. First off, I note your other topics seem pretty smart, such as critics of so-called global warming. But you missed the mark on this one. Health risk is only one thing wrong with smart meters. Here is a case for other dumb things about them: http://www.consumersdigest.com/special-reports/why-smart-meters-might-be-a-dumb-idea/view-all
    But speaking of health, enough studies show biological harm and effects far below what the FCC (no medical expertise there, and do you really trust gov agencies to look out for you?) allowed levels. FCC only cares about microwave heating effects as tested on a large man for 6 minutes.
    Just because we’re not being cooked at high speed does not mean no effects or harm.
    Please educate yourself to understand better why there is enough evidence for precautions to be taken regarding chronic low level INVOLUNTARY exposures.
    Look up Zory Glaser compilation of studies made for the US military in the 1970s at Magda Havas website.
    Look up and read list called BioInitiative, a couple thousand more studies. Research Russian studies on people (which is why their standards are much lower than ours).
