Appliances Introducing Stealth EMF Into Our Homes

Posted on May 27, 2011 by onthelevelblog

This morning we received an open letter from Cindy Sage, Principal of Sage Associates, an environmental consulting firm based in Santa Barbara.  What she reports below is very disturbing- that appliances are already being fitted with transmitters to connect to the ‘smart’ grid via the ‘home area network.’

The problem here is that these decisions- to install smart meters, to have your washing machine chatting behind your back with your utility through the “Home Area Network” (HAN)- have all been made behind closed doors- at exclusive resorts and conferenceswhere utilities, regulators and appliance manufacturers hatch ambitious schemes without any consultation with the people whose lives will be affected by these technologies. We can catch a glimpse of the arrogant mindset behind this truly stupid program from reading through PG&E’s internal presentations on the SmartMeter program.

Moral of the story- beware when you buy any new appliances- they may come with a nasty electromagnetic surprise inside.  Always ask before buying, and let them know youdon’t want wireless!  Corporations should be even warier.  As the hazards of wireless technology become well known throughout society- hopefully this will hit these companies in their bottom line- about the only thing they appear to pay any attention to.   Boycott the HAN!  Refuse Smart Meters!  -SSM!

From Cindy Sage:

Dear Friends,

This is a personal story.  We just purchased a new Bosch washer and dryer – for delivery next week.  Sam Milham happened to call this morning and said the following:

“I’ve just tested a home with an oven and dishwasher that had continuously radiating RF from internal power transmitters”.  He could verify the RF signal was continuous, and only stopped when he threw the circuit breakers for those appliances (turned off the electricity to them).  He could say with certainty the RF signal came from the appliances, because the signal was strongest at the appliance and attenuated with distance.

We have been told that these power transmitters will – in the future – be placed on appliances to monitor and report their energy usage to a wireless smart meter. Further, they should only be giving off RF pulses (the signal) very infrequently.  According to Richard Tell, an electrical engineer formerly with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) — in a 2008 report on Smart Grids for Hydro One Networks, Inc./Toronto — antennas on appliances may transmit at a density of .18watts, each at ballpark 4.5 seconds per hour.  Well, these appliance power transmitters are, in at least some cases, transmitting CONTINUOUSLY.  This puts them into a category more like wireless routers and WI-FI.  No one is going to tolerate 12-15 such power transmitters inside their homes that radiate full time.  These are appliances you come into close contact with while you cook and move around your kitchen.  Multiple, continuously transmitting RF sources are absolutely unacceptable to people with EHS and some ADA people with medical implants.

Bosch customer service confirmed that both the washer and dryer we have on order contain power transmitters. They cannot be ‘deactivated’.  We cancelled our order this morning.

“Hey utility, you wouldn’t BELIEVE what my owner ate last night!”

  1. You don’t want to wait around till the leak will get worse or until finally the
    whole ceiling is broken. Stopping anything at that speed will require some massive
    set of brakes. Make sure that every bid for your
    Greensboro roof repair spells out in detail what is, and what is not, included in the proposal.

  2. I would recommend cleaning it by hand – not running
    it in the dishwasher because you need to protect its coating.
    The statement is so true that it is even a
    semi-famous movie line. Or sometimes I want to make
    a cake specifically for someone, and I want that cake to reflect
    them and their life. You may need to add a little more along
    the way but this is the starting point. To the pan,
    around the chicken parts tuck in some sliced carrots and sprinkle with some diced onion.

  3. A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I think that you need to publish more about this subject matter, it may not be
    a taboo matter but usually people don’t talk about such topics.
    To the next! Best wishes!!

  4. You are sso interesting! I don’t suppose I have read a singke
    thimg like this before. So good to find someone with
    genuine thoughts on this topic. Seriously.. many thanks for starting this
    up. This website is something that is required on the internet, someone with a little originality!

  5. But with the mode of communication getting electronically motivated many new students have started opting
    for online medium. Once the moisture is absorbed and you feel
    the squishy, squeaky putty in your hand, your silly putty is complete.
    This instrument is basically used in the fields of molecular biology, chemistry and biochemistry.
    Those that test positive for the presence of drugs at this point undergo the same
    screen once again. Many reasons for the formation of orange peel, such as
    spraying, spraying distance control with poor or bad paint and solvents, spray and other conditions can cause bad orange peel.
    As most medical laboratory equipment suppliers offer recertified devices using new
    appliances, research facilities surely have the convenience
    to buy the right apparatus according to their budget.
    Most labs are stocked with all the glassware, fume hoods, etc.
    Endorphins also work to keep you feeling secure in your relationship and happy with your partner.
