Smart Meter Radiationis a major point of contention. The utility companies say Smart Meters are safe and emit little radiation. Many organizations dispute their findings and are warning the public about the possible dangers of Smart Meters. Here's some news and recommendations from the American Academy of Environmental Medicine.
The American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM), an “international association of physicians and other professionals interested in the clinical aspects of humans and their environment,” have released recommendations for patients with a broad array of illnesses and symptoms to avoid exposure to digital smart meters now being deployed internationally by governments and utilities.
The recommendation, which includes reference to 20 peer-reviewed studies showing biological harm from wireless technologies, indicates that patients with neurological, neurodegenerative diseases, genetic defects, cancer, and other conditions would benefit from avoiding pulsed RF radiation from smart meters. The recommendation says:
“Physicians of the American Academy of Environmental Medicine recognize that patients are being adversely impacted by electromagnetic frequency (EMF) and radiofrequency (RF) fields and are becoming more electromagnetically sensitive.
The AAEM recommends: that no Smart Meters be on these patients’ homes, (and) that Smart Meters be removed within a reasonable distance of patients’ homes…”
During meetings where the public is invited, utility companies parade expert testimony about the safety of their Smart Meters and how they will make the power grid more reliable. They cite numerous studies that show the meters are safe and emit minimal radiation. We just don't know how much Smart Meter Radiation is safe since the technology being used hasn't been put on every persons home until now. Join in the conversation and let the power companies know how you feel!
