Smart meter radiation and health – why are we neglecting non-toxic alternatives?

With growing evidence of harm to physical and mental health caused by continuous pulsed electro-magnetic radiation from ‘smart’ electricity meters, Lynne Wycherley asks: have we underestimated risks to heart function and the nervous system? And of interference with embedded medical devices, such as cardiac pacemakers?

It’s time to switch to over-wire or fibre communications to bring the ‘smart green grid’ of the future to electrosmog-free reality.

    What a fantastic article. I am pleased that this article mentioned effects to the nervous system. I suffer a terrible pain in my spine from mobile phones which is entirely from passive exposure to other peoples mobiles because I do not even own a mobile. The article mentions the case of Gareth Shane who suffered ”sudden deterioration in his multiple sclerosis when a smart-meter was installed on his home”. This reminds me of an article I saw on the Mast Victims News website about a former Nokia Technology Chief who says mobile phones aggravate his MS. There is also an article on the Mast Victims News webpage about how the spinal cord acts as a natural antenna for EMF. Imagine what all this wireless exposure does to the developing spine of a child or foetus.
    One of the problems we face in raising awareness about wireless health effect is that although I think people do suspect that mobile phones do cause brain cancer, they think that as long as they don’t hold the phone up to their head they are going to be O.K.. They need to understand that there are many health effects from wireless exposure and the amount of passive exposure they are getting now is enormous. Articles like this one are great for broadening people’s understanding of the wide range of health effects.

    Definition of SMART METER? Some digital meters don’t have a communications module yet still are sometimes called SMART. This is worrying in the way that our opt out letters are worded, especially for those that already have digital meters.
