SmartMeterDangers.org provides educational and scientific information to the public about health effects and other problems related to wireless smart meters.
BioInitiative Jan. 31, 2012 Report Issues New Warnings on Wireless and EMF Based on 1800 new EMF/RF studies in the past 5 years, a precautionary action level of 0.0003 uW/cm2 to 0.0006 uW/cm2 is suggested to protect sensitive populations, with a reduction from the BioInitiative 2007 recommendation of 0.1 uW/cm2 for cumulative outdoor pulsed RFR down to something three orders of magnitude lower (in the low nanowatt per square centimeter range) is justified in 2012 on a public health basis.
Smart Meters: Correcting the Gross Misinformation (a published position statement signed by 52 EMF/RF-radiation researchers)
From our CEP site *
Scientists and experts are saying wireless smart meters can endanger public health.
Smart meters are being installed by utility companies on all homes and businesses in the USA, Canada, Australia, and Europe.
"...the inauguration of smart meters with grudging and involuntary exposure of millions to billions of human beings to pulsed microwave radiation should immediately be prohibited..." Olle Johansson, PhD, Department of Neuroscience, Karolinska Institute (Sweden)
"...we are creating a potential time bomb. If smart meters are placed on every home, they will contribute significantly to our exposure and this is both unwise and unsafe." Magda Havas, PhD, Professor of Environmental & Resource Studies, Trent University (Canada)
"The SmartGrid concept could require every home to have a wireless electric and gas meter in place of their existing meters. If implemented, it will greatly increase the intensity of new wireless emissions in homes, schools and every other building that uses electricity and gas...
Scientists who study radiofrequency radiation from wireless technologies have issued a scientific statement warning that exposures may be harming the development of children at levels now commonly found in the environment."(Seletun Scientific Statement PRESS RELEASE)
"The Sage Report found many instances where wireless meters will violate FCC public safety limits in the manner they are installed and operated ... No positive assertion of safety can be made ... Currently, the data made available by the utilities that are installing smart meters is non-existent, piecemeal and without sufficient basis to verify." (Sage, Feb. 2011)
EON video w/ 39 moving speakers before the CA Public Utilities Commission on Feb. 24th, 2011, w/ most describing Smart Meter problems.
"New calculations suggest that continuous whole-body exposure to electro-magnetic radiation from so-called ‘smart’ meters – which operate around the clock – may be between 50 and 160 times worse [than] that from cell phones."(EON)
"...the cumulative whole body exposure from a Smart Meter at 3 feet appears to be approximately two orders of magnitude higher than that of a cell phone, rather than two orders of magnitude lower. " (Hirsch, 1/31/11)
JUST SAY NO TO SMART METERS!
