Scientists and Doctors Warn of Potential Serious Health Impacts of Fifth Generation 5G Wireless Technology

We the undersigned, more than 180 scientists and doctors from 36 countries, recommend a moratorium on the roll-out of the fifth generation, 5G, for telecommunication until potential hazards for human health and the environment have been fully investigated by scientists independent from industry. 5G will substantially increase exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF) on top of the 2G, 3G, 4G, Wi-Fi, etc. for telecommunications already in place. RF-EMF has been proven to be harmful for humans and the environment.

5G leads to massive increase of mandatory exposure to wireless radiation

5G technology is effective only over short distance. It is poorly transmitted through solid material. Many new antennas will be required and full-scale implementation will result in antennas every 10 to 12 houses in urban areas, thus massively increasing mandatory exposure.

With ”the ever more extensive use of wireless technologies,” nobody can avoid to be exposed. Because on top of the increased number of 5G-transmitters (even within housing, shops and in hospitals) according to estimates, ”10 to 20 billion connections” (to refrigerators, washing machines, surveillance cameras, self-driving cars and buses, etc.) will be parts of the Internet of Things. All these together can cause a substantial increase in the total, long term RF-EMF exposure to all EU citizens.

Harmful effects of RF-EMF exposure are already proven

Over 230 scientists from more than 40 countries have expressed their “serious concerns” regarding the ubiquitous and increasing exposure to EMF generated by electric and wireless devices already before the additional 5G roll-out. They refer to the fact that ”numerous recent scientific publications have shown that EMF affects living organisms at levels well below most international and national guidelines”. Effects include increased cancer risk, cellular stress, increase in harmful free radicals, genetic damages, structural and functional changes of the reproductive system, learning and memory deficits, neurological disorders, and negative impacts on general well-being in humans. Damage goes well beyond the human race, as there is growing evidence of harmful effects to both plants and animals.

After the scientists’ appeal was written in 2015 additional research has convincingly confirmed serious health risks from RF-EMF fields from wireless technology. The world’s largest study (25 million US dollar) National Toxicology Program (NTP), shows statistically significant increase in the incidence of brain and heart cancer in animals exposed to EMF below the ICNIRP (International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection) guidelines followed by most countries. These results support results in human epidemiological studies on RF radiation and brain tumour risk. A large number of peer-reviewed scientific reports demonstrate harm to human health from EMFs.

Governments, Authorities Ignore 60+ Years of Dangers of Wi-Fi

Mon., Mar. 28, 2016

http://www.odwyerpr.com/story/public/6595/2016-03-28/governments-authorities-ignore-60-years-dangers-wi-fi.html

By Jack O’Dwyer

Retired Canadian Army captain Jerry Flynn, who spent 22 years in its “Electronic Warfare” unit, is beseeching Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Canadian Medical Assn. president Dr. Chris Simpson to stop “suppressing the truth” about the dangers of Wi-Fi, Cellphones, computers, cell towers and other forms of radiation.

The Canadian government is “blind to the decades-old corruption that is ongoing within the Minister of Health’s radiation protection bureau,” he said. “Tragically, for all persons living in Canada, our provincial governments have shown themselves to be willfully silent to those of us who have made many attempts to alert them over the years.”

Smart Meter Frequencies, Known to Disrupt Human Nervous System

It has long been known that Smart meters communicate by means of microwave frequencies. Recent progress in understanding the phenomenon reveals the important role of not only the high frequency ranges, but also in the range of additional frequencies which are transmitted in the lower 2 to 50 kilohertz range. “Numerous studies have shown repeatedly that those very same frequencies disrupt the human nervous system. Indeed, “nerve block” is the phrase used in the studies to describe what occurs.”

This video presents close up first hand measurement of the different frequencies in play on actual smat meters in operation:

Brazilian Courts order lower electromagnetic pollution

21 July 2014 

by Elza Boiteux, Environmental News Network 

Judge recognized “the great possibility of the EM field of low frequency to be carcinogenic agent in human beings”

Brazilian Courts_EMF

The Brazilian Judiciary determined to reduce the level of electromagnetic pollution generated by power lines to standard adopted by Swiss law (1.0 microtesla).

Two associations of residents in São Paulo — the largest city of Brazil — proposed the action. The plaintiff has pleaded to not be exposed to electromagnetic fields incompatible with the human health.

The electromagnetic fields generated by power lines that cross these areas is 10 times greater than the level determined by the court. The judgment of Continue reading

The Insane Cancer Machines That Used to Live in Shoe Stores Everywhere

Eric Limer avt-large resize

“It’s positively terrifying to look back at it knowing what we know now. It makes you think twice about carrying that phone so close to your baby-makin’ parts. But hey, we’ve all gotta die sometime. Let’s just hope we can still reproduce before we do.”

Have you heard about these newfangled X-ray machines? We should put ’em in everything! We should literally use them to X-ray people’s feet to fit them for shoes. It sounds like a retro-parody cartoon, but it’s not. It’s what actually happened in the 1940s.

Smallish wooden podiums housing radioactive material for casual-foot X-rays, shoe-fitting fluoroscopes stared showing up in shoe stores around the 1920s. At first the X-ray wielding boxes were seen largely as gimmicks, but eventually they came to be respected as valuable shoe-fitting tools, instead of feared as the leaky cancer boxes they actually were. Into the 1950s the retrospectively horrifying nature of the things was mostly being brushed off, even in scientific studies:

“The shoe-fitting fluoroscope is not an instrument with obviously hazardous potentialities. It has long been used and no direct clinical evidence of harm has yet been established.” Continue reading

Alaska Supreme Court Upholds Award for RF Radiation Injury Below Thermal Exposure Level

Written by LBA in AM/Medium WaveRF Safety Compliance  

The Alaska Supreme Court (Court) upheld the decision of the Alaska Workers’ Compensation Board (Board) awarding an AT&T equipment installer 100% disability as a result of his workplace electromagnetic field exposure to radiofrequency (RF) radiation at levels slightly above the FCC RF limit. The award was based on the psychological and cognitive effects of RF radiation and over-exposure. This decision is significant because the FCC RF limit is designed to keep people from being heated and ignores evidence of other adverse biological effects at much lower levels.

The RF radiation exposure level in question was well below the FCC’s recognized level of “thermal” harm. The FCC contends that there are no scientifically established harmful health effects below the thermal threshold. The Board decision agrees with the medical experts who found adverse health effects from this RF radiation exposure which occurred above the FCC safety limit but below the thermal threshold. This decision could have a very significant financial impact on the wireless industry Continue reading

Mobile Radiation Experiment by High School Girls — Experiment with cress in 9th grade class awakens international attention

cress w text h

cress w text s

Researchers from England, Holland and Sweden have shown great interest for the biology experiment made by the five girls. Photo: By the girls from 9.b By Mathias Bohn

Take 400 cress seeds and distribute them in 12 trays. Then you place 6 trays in 2 rooms with the same temperature. You give the trays the same amount of water and sunlight over 12 days and remember that the 6 trays in one room is also exposed to mobile radiation.

This is the recipe for a biology experiment så genious, that it has created international sensation among recognised biologists and radiation experts. Behind the experiment are five girls from 9.b in Hjallerup school in northern Jutland in Denmark, and it all started with these girls noticing that they had problems with focus and concentration in the school:

– We all felt that we had experienced concentration problems in the school if we had been sleeping with the mobile phone next to our heads and sometimes it was difficult to sleep, explains Lea Nielsen, who is one of the ‘sprouting’ researchers.

The school did not have equipment to test the effect of mobile radiation on themselves, but that was probably good as the girls had to Continue reading

Wireless Industry’s Patented System to Reduce Acknowledged Cancer Risk from Wireless Local Networks,—Application Filed in 2003

A major telecom company patented a system to reduce electrosmog from
wireless local networks to reduce cancer risks associated with non-thermal
exposures to microwave radiation. The industry has known the risks for many
years but has failed to act. This patent application acknowledged the cancer
risk from exposure to wireless radiation eight years before the WHO*s
International Agency for Research on Cancer declared that radiofrequency energy,
including cell phone and Wi-Fi radiation, is a possible carcinogen  to
humans, like DDT and lead.

Now as a matter of public record, this patent application demonstrates that the Wireless Industry acknowledged, and has known for many years the potential health risks and carcinogenic influence, from use of its technology, for at least the past 10 years. Yet the Industry continues to fight efforts to educate the public about these risks and blocks effective regulation of wireless radiation in the U.S. and in other countries.

PRLog (Press Release) – Mar. 11, 2013 – Swisscom AG, a major telecommunications
provider in Switzerland, filed U.S. and international patent applications for an
innovative system to reduce electrosmog  from wireless local networks
(i.e., Wi-Fi) in 2003.

This patent application acknowledged the cancer risk from Continue reading

Recognizing EHS as Environmentally Caused Impairment: DR. OLLE JOHANSSON’S LETTER ON ELECTROHYPERSENSITIVITY (EHS)

25 NOVEMBER 2012

Dr. Olle Johansson’s Letter on Electrohypersensitivity (EHS)

Dr. Olle Johansson
Recently, André Fauteux, Editor of the Canadian magazine, “Maison du 21e siècle” asked Dr. Olle Johansson to send him the Swedish Government document confirming that electrosensitivity is a recognized functional impairment.  Here is Dr. Johansson’s reply.
“In essence,” he writes, “no official bodies or governments are needed to recognize any functional impairment. The presence or lack of EHS studies are not a prerequisite for any functional impairments, on the contrary. Impairments are viewed from the point of the environment.
No human being is in itself impaired, there are instead shortcomings in the environment that cause the impairment. Thus, it is the environment that should be “treated”!

Physician group adds weight to warnings of Wi-Fi in schools

By Kristy Kirkup, Parliamentary Bureau
Friday, October 5, 2012 6:12:25 EDT PM

OTTAWA – Schools should not install wireless Internet systems because the technology is linked to learning disabilities, headaches and immune system deficiencies, according to an international association of physicians.

The American Academy of Environmental Medicine, which is holding a conference on the brain and nervous system this week in Florida, says safer alternatives should be used instead of Wi-Fi.

“Adverse health effects from wireless radio frequency fields, such as learning disabilities, altered immune responses, and headaches, clearly exist and are well documented in the scientific literature,” the academy said in a statement on its website. “Safer technology, such as use of hard-wiring, is strongly recommended in schools.”

The American Academy of Pediatrics has also called for a review of government safety limits for electromagnetic radiation because of the growing number of wireless devices that are part of children’s lives.

In 2011, the World Health Organization classified radiation emitted by wireless devices, including cellphones and wireless Internet, as possibly carcinogenic. Despite this classification, Health Canada still says Wi-Fi is safe.

Dr. Jennifer Armstrong, an Ottawa-based doctor who works an environmental health clinic, says it is important to practise precaution, especially with kids. She is the former president of AAEM.

“They’re more vulnerable. Their skulls are smaller, their brains are still developing. We don’t want to start treating any permanent damage in these kids,” Armstrong said. “If they’re going to have trouble learning while at school or if they’re developing immune system problems … we don’t need to contribute more to it with something we can prevent.”

Tory MP Terence Young has called for a review of Safety Code 6, the framework for industry guidelines on radiation exposure in Canada.

“My constituents believe that Safety Code 6 is outdated, and there are a number of studies that have come out in the last year that they haven’t taken into consideration,” Young said in an interview with QMI Agency.

Former CDN Navy Captain & Engineer: Are smart meters microwave weapons?

September 26th, 2012 By webadmin Posted in HealthThe bigger picture

The following is a compilation of two updates from Jerry Flynn, a former Captain in the Communications Electronics Engineering Branch of the Royal Canadian Navy. Jerry studied virtually every aspect of wireless radio communications, including radio theory, antenna theory (both transmitting and receiving antennas), the ionosphere and radio propagation, solar storms and solar flares, the electromagnetic frequency spectrum – specializing in the radio frequency spectrum, electromagnetic radiation, cryptography, communications security, radar systems, and satellite systems.

“No informed person can question that microwave weapons exist or that the long term, low intensity EMR emitted by pulsed microwave devices are injurious to not just humans but to all life forms.”
– Captain Jerry Flynn (Ret.)

I am new to this whole Intervener role and am unfamiliar and not particularly comfortable with the cumbersome administrative process. One thing I do know is that this whole smart meter, meshed-grid and electromagnetic radiation (EMR) subject is of such great – even historical – importance to us all, that the public MUST be given every opportunity to see, hear and understand exactly what is going on.

DNA-Destroying Chip Being Embedded Into Mobile Phones

Posted on May 9, 2012

According to Dr. Boian Alexandrov at the Center for Nonlinear Studies at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico, terahertz (THz) waves destroy human DNA. The waves literally unzip the helix strand. Now a team of technologists at UT Dallas are planning to take chips broadcasting THz waves and embed them into mobile phones for use as an imaging system for consumers, law enforcement and medical personnel… a potentially deadly technology that could eventually kill or sicken millions of people

The controversial THz scanner technology used by the TSA at many of the nation’s airports is being adapted for cell phone use. Studies of terahertz radiation have caused experts to raise alarms over Continue reading

Renowned Researcher, Former Head of New York State Health Department Research Warns of RF Meter Health Hazard

Power Companies claim: “There is no reason to be concerned about RF meters. There are no adverse health effects. Those who are concerned about health effects have nothing to worry about.

Dr David Carpenter: “That is absolutely false. The question to ask them is, what is the evidence that RF meters are safe, and have no negative health effects? The answer to this question is, there is no such evidence. “

Maine’s Smart Meter Safety Coalition (www.smartmetersafety.com) recently caught up with Dr. David Carpenter, a Harvard Medical School-trained physician who headed up the New York State Dept. of Public Health for 18 years before becoming Dean of the School of Public Health at the University of Albany, where he currently directs the Institute for Health and the Environment.

Urgent Need for Biologically based EMF Public Exposure Standards

Anyone who reads these cannot be left with the illusion (or delusion) that this form of energy is without adverse biological and health consequences at levels well below existing guidelines.  Children are particularly vulnerable.   It is irresponsible of governments to maintain the status quo in light of thousands of studies that have been published and statements by these experts.

Here are the resolutions/appeals/reports in reverse chronological order: Continue reading

‘Electro-Sensitive’ or ‘Electromagnetically Aware’?

Josh del Sol from Vancouver  is the Producer of the forthcoming documentary feature film Take Back Your Power about the Smart Grid deployment and growing global resistance to it.  He mentioned that he believes there is beginning to be a shift in how people view the relationship between EMF electrosmog pollution and what’s been called “electro-sensitivity,” both of which are being significantly increased by the so called “smart” grid- a bloated, dangerous and invasive beast being paid for by our taxes and utility bills.

We are literally being microwaved- and then billed for it. 

Perhaps a better term for the ability to feel the waves- Josh suggests- is‘electromagnetically aware.’

The effects of wireless technology- even on doctors- can no longer be reasonably denied by industry.  The question is- Continue reading

Power Companies Warned of EMF Dangers 18 years ago

Posted on June 25, 2012 by onthelevelblog

18 years ago, in a veiled warning sent out with Pacific Gas and Electric utility bills, PG&E warns “studies have reported a weak association between estimates of residential magnetic field exposure and certain types of childhood cancer.”

Scratching your head? Turns out the leaflets were sent out- and PG&E knew of the dangers of EMF’s- nearly two decades ago:

Smart Meters: Correcting the Gross Misinformation

 | 11 juillet 2012 |
Quebec-based magazine La Maison du 21e siecle asked physician David O. Carpenter, former founding dean of the University at Albany (NY)’s School of Public Health, to comment on a letter published in the Montreal daily Le Devoir last May 24. This letter claimed wireless smart meters pose no risk to public health. Some fourty international experts contributed to the following rebuttal. 
We, the undersigned are a group of scientists and health professionals who together have coauthored hundreds of peer-reviewed studies

on the health effects of electromagnetic fields (EMFs). We wish to Continue reading

Looming Health Crisis: Wireless Technology and the Toxification of America

By Prof. James F. Tracy
Global Research, July 8, 2012

As a multitude of hazardous wireless technologies are deployed in homes, schools and workplaces, government officials and industry representatives continue to insist on their safety despite growing evidence to the contrary. A major health crisis looms that is only hastened through the extensive deployment of “smart grid” technology.

In October 2009 at  Continue reading

Going Green? Are We Conserving Energy, or Engineering Disease?

 Remember, we are told if we are not heating up to a temperature that wireless industry proponents have deemed unsafe, the picture below has ‘no effects whatsoever’
 They would have us believe you can be exposed to this for life, by as many sources as possible, from fetus onward and nothing will happen to you ‘whatsoever’

This picture does not even show children in classrooms 20+ laptops, 20+ cell phones, Industrial Routers, 1200 hours/year. Each of these devices puts out 1 000 000 + pulses per day, all day (that go into your body). ALL of these devices run on at least 1 000 000 000 Hz +

YOU run at 8 Hz…You DO NOT WORK at 1 000 000 000 Hz,

NO ONE is compatible with these frequencies. NO brain is designed to be MICROWAVED FOR LIFE, or for even 10 seconds. WE are changing the electricity of ALL LIFEFORMS. Worse, we are paying for the “RIGHT” to do it. Worse still is none of it needs to be happening as ALL of these things can be wired AND ALL of this would stop.

WE ARE CREATING ELECTRICAL FAILURE IN HUMANS, and ALL other LIFEFORMS (BEES TOO!) ELECTRICAL FAILURE IS DISEASE.

This photo (BELOW)  is a representation of YOUR BRAIN AND BODY, the lightbulbs are taking the excess electricity “DIRTY POWER” and they are lit up, THIS IS WHAT  HAPPENS TO YOUR BRAIN and why CHILDREN near powerlines have a many fold risk for Leukemia and Brain Cancers. The “Smart Grid” requires the buildout of 10′s of 1000′s of km of HVTC (High Voltage Transmission Cables) Many, through dense population areas:

And we wonder why our hospitals are packed? This is not to say this is the only cause (Sugar, GMO foods, Toxins, Air Pollution etc.) But unless you move out to the middle of nowhere, it is the only thing you cannot avoid, especially when smart meters blow all your old appliances and ALL new appliances will be wi-fi enabled ‘smart’ appliances.

Letter to the Fairfield Ledger: Council not responsive on meter fees

From the Fairfield Ledger, Thursday, June 28, 2012, Page 4

To the editor:

I was disappointed at the Fairfield City Council meeting on Monday night, June 25.  At the Council meeting, about a dozen people pleaded to eliminate opt-out fees to replace Neptune radio-read water meters.  Neptune radio-read meters, which are often right inside people’s homes, emit pulses of RF radiation every 14 seconds 24 hours a day.

Many people were concerned about Continue reading

City Council Discusses Opt-out for Radio Read Water Meters

By Richard Wolfson, PhD, THE FAIRFIELD WEEKLY READER, June 14-20, 2012

Approximately 100 people crowded into Fairfield’s City Council meeting Monday night [June 12, 2012] to discuss the city’s proposed bill to opt-out of the Neptune radio-read (RF) water meters.

Many residents expressed concern because of extensive reports worldwide of potential health damaging effects from radiation from pulsed RF meters. Fairfield meters emit pulses of radio frequency radiation every 14 seconds, 24 hours a day. Residents who want to opt out and get a different, non-RF meter will have to pay $100 plus $75/hr for installation, and an additional $10/month, even though the alternative meter costs only $91, compared to $240 for the Neptune wireless.

Numerous people said citizens should not have to pay extra to remove a potentially harmful device the city installedwithoutconsent.KathrynSeranduccomparedtheopt-outfeetoprotectionmoney. JohnRevolinski proposed dropping the $10/month fee, but was opposed by other council members.

Many were upset the city purchased these meters and installed them in homes without informing the public or researching their health effects. City officials were contending the meters were safe, without direct evidence. Also, city officials passed on misinformation about the meters, saying they only transmit once a month. Even years after meters were installed, the technology was not clearly understood by the city.

John Brown reported on meter problems across the country resulting in drastic overcharges, with no transparency for dispute. Also, through cost-benefit analysis, Attorney-Generals of Illinois and Connecticut demonstrated no cost benefit for consumers, rejecting industry bids to deploy RF meters.

Public defense lawyer Steve Druker said the Neptune website confirms there is no direct research proving these meters are safe. Mr. Druker, an expert on food safety, explained food additives need to be directly proven safe before approval. These meters would not be allowed if they were regulated like food.

Bob Rabinoff, PhD explained that because of safety concerns with RF meters, scientists would not even be allowed to test this device on animals. Yet the device is in 1500 Fairfield homes. Residents are in effect involuntary test subjects. Many can not afford these high opt-out fees even though they do not want the meters. The radiation is considered particularly harmful to pregnant woman, elderly, and babies.

In Vermont customers can choose non-RF meters for no charge, no opt-out fees. Likewise, Ashland, in Oregon, and California Counties Ojai, Santa Cruz, Marin, Lake, and Mendocino and 8 other counties have followed suit. On June 7, opt-out fees for Southern California Edison (SCE) customers were suspended on moratorium while CPUC determines whether the fees are legal.

Alliant Energy recently revised its plan to install electric smart meters in Iowa beginning in 2013, stating that they have no current plans to do so.

Fairfield City Council heard the comments and is researching a non-RF alternative, such as one in Sioux City that transmits water meter data via telephone, avoiding RF emissions entirely.

Paint it Green – Letter to the Editor, Fairfield Ledger

PAINT IT GREEN
To The Editor,
There will be a “final reading” of the proposed ‘radio-read water meter’ (“Smart Meter”) installations program, at the Monday, June 25, City Council Meeting, 7PM at City Hall.  While the extensive public concern expressed by almost 70 people present at the June 11th Council Meeting may have been a disappointment to our good Mayor, Administrator and Council Members, the issues raised are not likely to go away quietly.  Although the “FAIRFIELD GO GREEN” initiatives and the federal monies promised in exchange for implementing them are quite attractive, the cost to our health may not be worth the cash saved in this case.  It might be convenient to minimize objections to the new meters and to ridicule those who raise them, but the bottom line is that there is significant, science-based cause for health concerns – especially for young children and pregnant mothers.  This is an issue which the Council needs to take very seriously, and which will not just go away if we “Paint It Green”.

Radio-read water meters pose dangers – Letter to the editor, Fairfield Ledger

From the Fairfield Ledger, Thursday, June 7, 2012, page 4

To the editor: On the front page of your May 30 issue, you show a picture of me speaking with city councilman Daryn Hamilton about Fairfield’s radio-read water meters. You quote the city council asserting the meter causes no known dangers.

The city’s reference for claiming RF meters are safe is the report “Health Impacts of Radio Frequency from Smart Meters,” released in 2011 by the California Council on Science and Technology (CCST). This report has since been criticized by international science and medical experts.

Dr. David Carpenter, former Dean of Public Health at the University at Albany described the report as “faulty” and “full of inaccuracies.” Elihu Richter MD, MPH, a distinguished medical epidemiologist from Israel said “It is now fairly certain that there will be widespread adverse public health impacts [from RF emitting meters].” Lukas Margaritis, Professor of Cell Biology and Electron Microscopy at the University of Athens stated the report’s conclusion, that RF meters are free of health hazards, “has absolutely no scientific validity.” Olle Johansson, PhD, Swedish Professor of Neuroscience at Karolinska Institute said: “Exposure of millions to billions of human beings to pulsed microwave radiation should immediately be prohibited.”

In Fairfield, RF emitting meters were installed in over 1000 homes without even informing residents that the meters emit radio frequency (RF) radiation. The meters transmit pulses of RF radiation every 14 seconds 24 hours a day. Recent published research shows that other devices emitting RF radiation at similar peak intensity and frequencies can cause arrhythmia, rapid changes in heart rate indicating potential for serious heart problems, impaired mental function, indicating interference with brain functioning, and reduced fertility.

Therefore, while there is no definitive research yet showing that these specific meters in Fairfield are unsafe, there is extensive research and statements from scientific and health experts questioning the safety of RF emittingmeters. Also,while this meter meets FCC standards, research shows that damage to health can occur at levels thousands of times below radiation levels the FCC considers harmful.

Fairfield residents with these meters are reporting the same symptoms that others with RF (smart) meters in other cities are reporting, including headaches, dizziness, ringing in the ears, nausea, insomnia, and other problems. These are established symptoms of RF exposure. In its April 2012 report, the American Academy of Environmental Medicine called for “an immediate caution on Smart Meter installation,” stating: “Multiple studies correlate RF exposure with diseases such as cancer, neurological disease, reproductive disorders, immune dysfunction, and electromagnetic hypersensitivity.”

In California, 13 local governments have banned smart meter installations, including Santa Cruz, whose public health department stated: “There are no relevant public safety standards for pulsed RF involving chronic exposure of the public… FCC guidelines are irrelevant…There is no scientific data to determine if there is any safe RF exposure level.”

Over 700 Fairfield residents have signed a petition calling for a safer alternative to these RF emitting meters. [See http://tinyurl.com/FairfieldSmartMeterPetition] I applaud the city in moving so quickly to create an opt-out program. However, many residents feel they should not have to pay fees for replacing a meter of questionable safety, especially when the city did not even inform them that the meter was exposing them to RF radiation 24 hours a day.

Dogs, owner shocked by Smart Meter

BY SARAH SIMPSON, CITIZEN JUNE 8, 2012 

Sahtlam resident Chris Davis lives on a five-acre parcel near the rural community’s fire hall.To give his two dogs Minnie and Katie room to roam but to also keep them contained, Davis installed an electric dog fence around the entirety of his property.

“My dogs wear a collar and then it gives them a little shock if they get too far past the fence,” Davis explained. “There’s never been an issue. Ever.”

That is, until BC Hydro contractor Corix installed a smart meter at his house.

“The smart meter gives my dogs electric shocks when they go near the meter,” Davis explained. “The collar starts bleeping and shocks them to the point where they yelp.”

Austrian Medical Association Objects to Smart Meter Rollout

The Austrian Chamber of Physicians is calling for a reconsideration or suspension of “the planned timetable of the mandatory introduction of ‘smart meters’” in Austria, “pending clarification and solution of open questions.”

“The Austrian Chamber of Physicians strictly rejects another, in this case actually state-mandated, expansion of the electrosmog exposure on the Austrian population.”

“The expected health consequences would be an increase in symptoms and diseases that fall into the category of so-called multi-system diseases. This illness is characterized by involving several organs or functional systems at the same time and in interaction.”
