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

The Ecologist, a British environmental magazine, looks again at some of the inconvenient truths about so-called smart meters. Writer Lynne Wycherley points out that we will only achieve a biosustainable green grid if we factor in precautionary EMF science into our awareness and energy use.  In this comprehensive article packed with links to supporting material, disruption to the human heartbeat, interference with medical implants, insomnia and increased adverse outcomes such as cancer all receive a mention.

Extract from the Ecologist: “Smart meter radiation and health – why are we neglecting non-toxic alternatives?”

Lynne Wycherley, 6th June 2017

With growing evidence of harm to physical and mental health caused by continuous pulsed em 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 struck me most was the common time-line: normal people, strange new symptoms, who only later discovered that a smart meter had been installed at the time or just before their symptoms initiated.”

It is striking that the American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) called for a moratorium on smart meters (2012) and continues to veto them today.

Based on their literature reviews and clinical experience, they advised no smart meters should be located in or next to the homes of those with cardiac or neurological conditions, including Parkinson’s or dementia; or electrosensitivity; or cancer.

Their board wrote to California’s Public Utilities Commission: “guidelines for RF exposure used to justify installation of ‘smart meters’ are based only on thermal effects and are obsolete” – guidelines now under heavy fire from the 224-scientist appeal to the UN (see Part 1).

The AAEM continues: “Wireless RF radiation … effects accumulate over time which is an important consideration given the chronic nature of exposure to ‘smart meters’. The current medical literature raises credible questions about genetic and cellular effects, hormonal effects … blood / brain barrier damage, and increased risks of certain types of cancers from RF and ELF levels similar to those emitted by ‘smart meters’. Children are placed at particular risk.”

Footage has been published of smart meter transmissions disrupting the human heartbeat. Blind electrocardiogram field tests (16 May 2017), verified by Dr Gilberto Leon MD, an American GP, reveal smart meter heartbeat disruption in an apparently healthy adult male.

Repeated disruption was found at 1m from a smart meter in blind tests on a healthy adult male. Dr Leon warned this effect “silently makes our hearts work too hard“, a chronic stress.  He had to halt a later blind test (1.5m) on a woman due to the meter’s apparent, rapid impact. If such risks are confirmed by double-blind studies (if funded), or found at greater distances, should smart-meters be re-sited or withdrawn?

Electro-siege … RF-sensitive medical implants

Pacemakers, insulin pumps, deep-brain stimulators, cochlear implants, internal defibrillators (ICDs), spinal stimulators and other RF-sensitive implants are in growing use worldwide. Many of us have loved ones with such implants, and may face personal use in later life.

Geophysics professor Gary Olhoeft has a Parkinson’s deep-brain-stimulator that can be affected unpredictably around wireless technologies, even shutting off. He has given talks on the EMF cacophony we are creating – and its breathtaking short-sightedness.

During one such talk, everyone present indicated that their own medical implants had been disturbed by EMFs in the environment. On the lack of research into such interactions, he says “you have to ask: why is so little known about something that has the potential to injure or kill so many … ?”

Internationally, there has been no post-rollout monitoring of possible smart-meter / medical implant interactions, despite the meters’ 24:7 piercing microwave pulses, mixed modalities, and situations – such tiny shop units (UK) – which create sustained close exposure. Despite the new EU law on occupational EMFs.

Bio-Effects presentation delivered to the Electromagnetic Energy Reference Group

Steve Weller (BSc and MORSAA), SSMA’s representative on the Electromagnetic Energy Reference Group (EMERG), continues in his relentless quest to inform Australian authorities of radiofrequency biological effect findings and issues.

Steve delivered a condensed version of his presentation on bio-effects at the bi-annual meeting of EMERG, held in Melbourne on 25 May 2017.  EMERG was established by the Australian Government to provide the CEO of the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA) with advice and input concerning public health issues related to the use of the radiofrequency spectrum for communications.  Members of EMERG include government, industry and community representatives.

Steve’s latest presentation covers bio-effect findings dating from prior to the 1970s through to the present day.  The potential role of radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation in the growing prevalence of chronic disease in modern society is examined.

Extremely interesting analysis garnered from a database of peer-reviewed scientific studies compiled by the Oceania Radiofrequency Science Advisory Association (ORSAA) is included.  ORSAA, of which Steve is also a member, is a group of Australian academics and researchers; their goal is to provide an independent perspective on the science relating to electromagnetic radiation and human exposure.

The presentation compares ORSAA findings with that of ARPANSA’s Technical Report No. 164 (TR-164), entitled Review of Radiofrequency Health Effects Research – Scientific Literature 2000-2012.  TR-164 was used by ARPANSA as justification that Australia’s 2002 radiofrequency standard continues to provide adequate protection.  Analysis of studies in ORSAA’s database seriously undermines and questions this conclusion.

The presentation also examines how funding source and country of origin appears to affect outcomes as well as how the lack of precaution and failure to adequately communicate and manage risk can have potentially serious consequences.

Why die for Wi-Fi? My child did…

June 11 is the anniversary of the death of Jenny Fry, a 15 year old girl whose death is attributed to the sufferings she experienced living with Wi-Fi.

Jenny’s mother, Debra, writes:

“She [Jenny]  was utterly exhausted; instead of receiving sympathy and understanding, she was battling the school for giving her detentions and refusing to acknowledge her difficulty around wifi, which had a profound effect on her ability to concentrate, write, explain things, and function in school…

Her death was totally preventable, if I had been listened to earlier.

Her symptoms: headaches, fatigue, joint pains, sleep problems, skin irritation, rash, anaemia, menstrual cycle disruption, heart flutters, difficulty concentrating, temperature control, urine urgency, overwhelming sense of needing to leave some classrooms at school.

She had a really bad nose bleed at home while she was doing home work on her wifi laptop; she came downstairs saying ‘please help me, I cannot stop my nose bleeding and I have not knocked it.’ As a nurse, even I had a job to stop it.

We were both so concerned that I looked up nosebleed/wifi online, and was totally shocked at what I found; the more I researched, the more evidence I found from doctors and scientists saying that wifi was not safe for children, just as mobile phones were not.

I was in the back garden on a sunny day, trying to find a school without wifi and continuing my research into the health effects, using a wifi laptop, when I realised – wow this technology is amazing; it’s coming through brick walls, just like xrays.

This was the moment I realised how dangerous this stuff could be. But at the time I thought that I was trying to save her from future cancer, future fertility problems, as well as the list of symptoms above.

We immediately switched off the wifi at home and fitted ethernet cables, which helped Jenny to sleep, and helped some of her symptoms to go or improve. However, at school, some would return, or be triggered and exacerbated by their Rukus Zoneflex 7982 wifi.

I miss Jenny every day, and will spend the rest of my life trying to get justice for her, and campaigning to raise awareness of the health hazards from wifi/microwave radiation exposure, which should never have been put anywhere near our children.

I hope to help her to achieve her dreams of helping humanity, by telling her tragic – but totally preventable – story.

So please join the fight to protect our remaining precious children from wifi – before it’s too late. Prevention is better than cure.

How? Reduce the tsunami of wifi invading their lives. Switch off wifi in schools, homes and hospitals, and provide wired ethernet access to the internet.”
