Wireless warning | The Canberra Times

Dr Merrilyn Fitzpatrick’s letter on the new rule to increase use of smart meters is timely (Letters, November 29).

Of the various concerns she raises, the increasing penetration of wireless devices and saturation of the environment with electromagnetic fields is a significant public health concern.

The Oceania Radiofrequency Scientific Advisory Association has assembled a large database of scientific studies in this area, and these confirm the significant risks to public health, and the adverse biological effects of radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (see www.orsaa.org).

Of course, it is important to note that many of the so-called “no effect” findings come from industry-sponsored research studies.

Getting a smart meter refusal notice into your electricity retailer is important, particularly where utilities/retailers decide to replace functional analogue meters with smart meters under the guise of maintenance, which can occur with little or no notice.

    Thank you for a very interesting meeting last Sunday, and the showing of the Movie, ” Generation Zapped ” , rather scary for the future Generations. I had messaged you previously about my situation, I am renting a Unit in Mentone, and on the outside wall of the Main Bedroom is a Metre Box, with Four Smart Metres Inside. I have had to move out of the Main Bedroom, because I developed various Health problems, Tinnitus, Insomnia, High B/ P, and possibly more. I have contacted various people re my problem, even the Minister for Health, but they just Fob you off, and put you onto groups like, ARPANSA, I have registered my ailments with them, but that is all they do, is register them. Anyway I also contacted United Energy, the Power Supplier, who did contact me, to say that they would look into it!.. Well they did, and said that they had ” Re-Configured The Smart Metres To The Lowest Level ” . Do you have any knowledge about this?.. What all that means, will it be safe to move back into the Bedroom?.. I am just an ordinary Layman and have no knowledge about these things. Could you please advise.

    Thank you Me Allen Salter.

    Sorry if I’m ignorant – but I’m not quite clear on how to access a copy of the letter, assuming it’s publicly available given it being cited here. Are you able to point me in the right direction?
