ARPANSA (Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency) commenced Australia’s first centralised EMR Health Complaints Register on 4 July 2003. The Register collects reports of health concerns related to possible EMR field exposures in the range of 0-300 GHz.
Out of a total of 91 reports received up until June 2013, 36 (40%) were received in the 2012 – 2013 reporting period alone. Moreover, 78% of the reports for the July 2012 – June 2013 period came from just one state – Victoria.
No prizes for guessing as to what appears to be behind this massive spike. The leading EMR source reported as causing health effects during this period was smart meters. Go to http://www.arpansa.gov.au/pubs/emr/analysis12-13.pdf to see the breakdown and the health effects that people are reporting.
What will the July 2013 – June 2014 reporting period reveal?
Click on https://stopsmartmetersau.files.wordpress.com/2011/10/arpansa-report-form.doc, print out the form, fill in and mail to ARPANSA if you want to add your own report to this year’s statistics. There is always the chance, if enough people take the time to report their symptoms, that research will, finally, be undertaken into the health effects resulting from the roll-out of smart meters.
