Austrian Medical Association Guidelines


Here’s a link for the Austrian Medical Association Guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of EMF-related health problems and illnesses (EMF syndrome).  This is a good document for people to print out and take to their doctor:


Also, here’s a link to a quick guide to the major sources of electro-magnetic fields (EMF) in everyday life, as well as some suggestions about how to avoid unnecessary EMF:

    From British Columbia, Canada: We are using this package for people being made ill.

    We also have a legal case to the BC Human Rights Tribunal fighting for disabled people’s rights to safe accommodation:,2,1856

    Doctor’s Information Package
    Addressed to Medical Professionals. Useful to all. Updated August, 2012:,77,1849

    The following package is for those who wish to approach their doctors with information regarding the possible health risks from non-thermal microwave radiation. It contains links organized into specific health effect categories. These links can be printed out according to personal areas of need or concern, and used to start a dialogue with doctors who may not as yet have associated certain health conditions with EMF or RF exposure.

    The introductory letter on pages 1 and 2 contains a link to the entire list, and may be useful to your doctor as a reference tool.

    “Dear Medical Professional:

    “Your patient has asked us for support in providing you with information regarding the possible health risks from non-thermal microwave radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation, recently reclassified by the WHO/IARC as a Class 2B, possible human carcinogen.

    “This WHO risk category also includes lead, DDT, chloroform, and dioxane, and is relevant to all wireless devices emitting radiofrequency electromagnetic fields, including cordless phones, cell phones, IPads, Wi-Fi routers, wireless games, baby monitors, and smart meters . . .

    “Many doctors have already given medical advice to their patients by way of a medical letter or note on a prescription form stating that the patient should avoid, for medical reasons, living in a residence or residential complex at which a wireless meter is operating in order to maintain their health or avoid aggravating a medical condition. This medical advice stating the health condition and advising the patient that they should avoid ongoing exposure to wireless radiofrequency and smart meter emissions will allow your patient to participate in the Human Rights Action currently underway. We are hopeful that the individual’s right to protect their health as advised by their medical doctor will be upheld by the Human Rights Tribunal, and this forced exposure within their own home to undesirable microwave radiofrequency emissions will be replaced with reasonable and respectful accommodation by BC Hydro . . . ”

    Information categories contained in this package:

    Microwave Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Radiation – General
    Smart Meters
    Interference with medical devices (Smart Meters Risk)
    EHS/ES – Electrosensitivity
    Tinnitus / Microwave Hearing
    Sleep and Insomnia
    Infertility / Sperm Damage
    Cell Towers – Applicable to constant low-level exposures
    Cell Phones
    Published Articles
    BEES – This section included due to potential impacts on human health from loss of bees and pollination

    Closing down my DSE correspondence on electrical safety. For general interest.
    Thanks for your reply, I had been concerned that re-positioning of my house wiring in the fusebox during meter installation might cause small fissures in it’s insulation leading to electrical tracking to earth with consequent severe overheating of my unprotected mains. I understand you to say that the provider is not responsible for any changes to the condition of my house wiring, an opinion backed up by the statement in SpAusnet FAQs that “All smart meters, (but not the connecting wires), must be thoroughly tested after they are installed to ensure they meet all relevant safety standards and requirements.”)
    Since I am ultimately legally responsible for the safety of electrical wiring inside my property boundary, I will now arrange for the previously advised electrical inspection. The trade standard repair is to fit approved heatshrink tubing over any affected wire. And thanks for your advice on conditionally fitting a small battery-powered smoke detector in my fuse box,

    For general interest, here is the DSE reply to my email copied in my previous post, The next post is my closure to this correspondence,

    Thank you for your recent enquiry to the Department of Primary Industries – Customer Service Centre.

    The Department’s response is:- Energy Safe Victoria does not require a Certificate of Electrical Safety to be issued for a smart meter installation that only requires work on the metering equipment. Electricity meters are a part of the electricity network (along with the poles and wires) owned and maintained by the local electricity distribution business, which is required by law to meet stringent electrical safety standards as a condition of its license.

    Smart meter installations are covered by these electrical safety standards as, in most circumstances, the process of installing a smart meter involves simply replacing one meter with another and does not extend to work on the customer’s electrical wiring beyond the meter box.
    A Certificate of Electrical Safety would be required, however, if during the smart meter installation process, an issue were identified with a customer’s electrical wiring beyond the meter box. In these cases, as for all other electrical work involving a household’s wiring, the work would need to be undertaken by a registered electrical contractor and a Certificate of Electrical Safetywould need to be issued.
    This situation has applied to meter exchanges in Victoria for many years and has not impacted on insurance policies. The Department of Primary Industries is currently discussing this matter with the Insurance Council of Australia to remove any confusion by its members and the community.

    Only the meter belongs to the Electricity distributors. You may fit a smoke detector in/on your home so long as it does not interfere with the equipment of the distributors.

    Very Very interesting reading of both links. They will both go to my Doctor the next time I go. Thank you Stop Smart Meters Australia. Maybe you should send a copy to Premier Bailleau and Minister O’Brien. (enough said!!!!!)
