Smart meters are a growing concern to the population.
There are a number of organisations which have given strong cautions about all technology that emit radiation similar to that of smart meters.
These include the Council of Europe, the European Environmental Agency, UK Trade Union Congress, the International Commission for Electromagnetic safety and the Russian Commission for Electromagnetic Safety.
Another organisation which is concerned about smart meters is the American Academy of Environmental Medicine. It has recently called for an immediate moratorium on installing smart meters due to radiation health risks.
The World Health Organisation and the National Toxicology Program have also studied the effects of non-thermal radiation on human health. Their updated results on May 31, 2011 are that, among other things, radiation can significantly increase the risk of glioma – a deadly brain tumour. They have classified RF radio frequency as a possible carcinogen, the same as lead and DDT.
Furthermore, the Bioinitiative Report of 2007 – authored by 15 scientists, researchers and health policy professionals and one of the most informative reports written on the subject – clearly documents evidence that numerous health problems are created by exposure of RF, including DNA breakage and cancer.
The report is recognized by the European Parliament and the European Environment agency.
Public fear about wireless Smart meters are well founded. They are backed by various medical organisations such as the public health departments of Santa Cruz County California and the Salzburg State Austria.
These authorities are worried about the growing number of citizens who say they have developed electrohypersensitivity. The information here shows that installation of smart meters should stop as there is evidence to show that they are dangerous for the health.
