Smart Meters

Q. What are "smart meters"?
A. "Smart meters" are radio devices that receive and transmit signals to and from the utility companies. These meters work in a grid system, transmitting signals from one meter to another like a daisy chain, and then, finally, to the utility company. Smart meters use microwave digital technology — the same kind of technology that is used for wi-fi and cell phones. At this point smart meters are mainly being used to measure the use of electricity and gas.

      One of the concerns about smart meters is the EMF microwave radiation they emit. Given that smart meters are installed on every home and business that uses electricity and/or gas, and that smart meters operate 24/7, smart meters are creating an environment of continuous radiation. And not only are you affected by your own house meter, but also by the meters on the houses around you.

      The utility companies tell us that smart meters operate only a minute or so a day. This is misleading because the information that smart meters send to the company is sent in a strong but very short pulse. You could fit thousands of these pulses into a minute. Smart meters emit these pulses all through the day, and these strong pulses are proving to be very damaging to your health.

      There are many scientific studies dealing with the health concerns of smart meter radiation. The links to some of these are listed below.

Q. What if I live in an apartment complex?
A. In terms of smart meters, one may well be affected by the smart meters that serve the other apartments. Fortunately, in most cases, these meters can be shielded so that the radiation is at a controlled, safe level. The following account offered by one of my clients can serve as an example.  

      In this awards-winning 2013 documentary, filmmaker Josh del Sol travels far and wide to see why people all over the world are getting sick from smart meters. The film presents an amazingly in-depth look at the negative health effects of smart meters in particular, and wi-fi in general. Along the way, Josh discovers the true function of smart meters and the inherent dangers of the smart meter grid. This information is presented in the first 31 minutes of the film. If you are interested only in the health effects of smart meters, skip the first 31 minutes.

     There are two free full-length postings of the film on YouTube. However, this one is missing the first four minutes, which contain information that is quite important. This one is complete, but is being shown in an auditorium in which there is background noise going on.

      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 an open letter published in the Montreal daily Le Devoir on May 24, 2012. This letter claimed wireless smart meters pose no risk to public health. More than fifty international experts contributed to the rebuttal.
