Are you on the list of people who should not be near a Smart Meter?
I don't know . . . do you
ever have an upset stomach or headaches for no discernible reason? Ever have
anxiety? (Anxiety is now considered an epidemic!)
The other many symptoms include those relating to neurological impairment (including anything from dizziness to Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, ALS, and much more), pulmonary (including chest tightness), muscular (including spasms), gastrointestinal, pain, skin issues, sinuses, lungs (even shortness of breath), dental, sleep, ADHD, tremors, visual disruption, liver, genetic defects, fetal abnormalities, depression, cancer, and more. Pregnant women and the elderly are also indicated as those who should avoid EMF/RF exposure.
Chances are - you should be exempt from being anywhere near Smart Meters! And your electric company should remove your neighbors' meters to accommodate you. This report is adding more weight to the side of those fighting for their health.
What if you are in perfect health? Then, it's not advisable to ruin a perfectly good thing. Let's revisit some of the symptoms that Smart Meters have been known to cause:
The World Health Organization has recently classified the type of radiation emitted from smart meters (non-ionizingradiation) as a Class 2B carcinogen, on par with lead and DDT. [Symptoms]:
Sleep problems (insomnia,
difficulty falling asleep, night waking, nightmares)
Stress, agitation, anxiety, irritability
Headaches, sharp pain or pressure in the head
Ringing in the ears, ear pain, high pitched ringing
Concentration, memory or learning problems
Fatigue, muscle or physical weakness
Disorientation, dizziness, or balance problems
Eye problems, including pain and pressure
Cardiac symptoms, palpitations, arrhythmias, chest pain
Leg cramps, or neuropathy
Arthritis, body pain, sharp, stabbing pains
Nausea, flu-like symptoms
Sinus problems, nose bleeds
Respiratory problems, cough, asthma
Skin rashes, facial flushing
Endocrine disorders, thyroid problems, diabetes
High blood pressure
Changes in menstrual cycle
Hyperactivity or changes in children’s behavior
Recurrence of cancer
Consumers are reporting that smart meters are giving them non-stop headaches, insomnia, heart palpitations and body aches, and making them so sick they are going to have to sell their home and/or move. (http://www.scribd.com/doc/100166265/Smart-Meter-Info-Handout)
There are also studies on DNA damage caused by low frequency EMFs.
By now it should be official: no one should be subjected to dangerous Smart Meters. Especially if there were ever a shadow of a doubt.
But, if one doctors' group report doesn't finally sway electric companies, the PUCs, and local officials, then maybe some other recent events will:
What's more, electric companies like PG&E have been fully aware of the dangerous health effects of EMF for 20 years! Back then the phrase of the day was "childhood leukemia," legitimately traced to overexposure to EMF through power lines. So, PG&E issued a brochure actually warning people to keep their distance from electric appliances to minimize the chance of EMF-related cancer.
Do you think they warn their patrons today about the same appliances when it comes to RF exposure even after thousands of health complaints roll in? Here is their stance today. Pulling again from the anti-Smart Meter info handout above: "Keep this in mind… there has NEVER been any studies done by our federal or state governments to look at the health safety aspect of smart meter technology." You may notice PG&E's method of cherry-picking data and words, and using only one report quoting the FCC.
just one day before the AAEM report, PBS aired a pro-Smart Grid piece that was more
reminiscent of a shameless infomercial for both the Public Utilities Commission
and Agenda 21. It focuses on the benefit of centralizing as an essential
measure to restore power during storms so people aren't left to melt in the
heat like they were during recent Texas storms.
It is only at the very end that PBS NewHour cleverly downplays the opposition, supposedly to get airtime on July 20th:
Not everyone in Texas is sold, of course. A small group of people opposed to smart meters was scheduled to hold a march in Austin today to make that clear. Next week, we will report on some of the objections, including health risks and privacy considerations.
Actually, the march was a sizable gathering of people vying for a hearing regarding health concerns inresponse to a petition created by popular journalist and activist Devvy Kidd. Just as before, they have been repeatedly ignored and deferred over stupid technicalities. Smart Meters have been installed all over Texas by "silent force" with no one's consent. They are not being taken seriously, and it will be interesting to see if PBS treats activist arguments with respect on the 20th.
There really does appear to
be an unbending Technocracy at work, that disregards safety and choice, and yet forces more
payment from the grieving peasants.
When private corporations would stomp on their paying customers' wishes, even slowly killing them, one could surmise that the orders are from on high - at this time it would appear that consumer rights are the casualty of the sub-goals of Agenda 21 - initiated with bribe money to the federal government, partially forwarded to the State and PUCs, complete with irresistible payouts to the major utility corporations.
