Smart Meters use wireless radio frequencies to transmit electrical, gas and water usage information direct to the utility companies. These meters are designed to transmit pulsed microwave radiation frequently (sometimes every few seconds). Smart meters are already rolled out in many other countries, where there have been reports of health problems, price hikes, overcharging and some incidents of smart meters going on fire.
Existing Analogue Meters are safer for you and your family.
Acute health problems reported where smart meters are installed include heart palpitations, chest pain, inability to concentrate, feeling faint, headaches, dizziness, irritability, nausea, sleep difficulties, and tinnitus and auditory problems. Health complaints . Many people have had no choice but to leave their homes as a result of illness from smart meter radiation.
Smart Meters can also cause Dirty Electricity.
Accumulative long-term exposure to microwave radiation can lead to depression, chronic illnesses, Alzheimer’s, neurological illnesses and cancers. Children, the elderly and those with already compromised health are most at risk of developing acute or long-term illnesses from exposure to smart meters.
Smart Meters have also been known to interfere with heart pacemakers and other implanted medical devices.
Even Smart Meter industry leaders have admitted privately that they are aware of health effects and other problems associated with them “There really are people who feel pain, etc., related to EMF,..” See this.
Trees, plants, animals and birds can all be affected by smart meter radiation See here.
Smart Meters are not environmentally friendly. Consider the huge environmental cost to produce millions of new meters and to dispose of analogue meters, as well as installing a new smart grid – an unnecessary expense as existing analogue meters work perfectly well.
Smart meters will be on all the time, collecting information and sending out pulsed radiation. Extra electricity will be required to power the communications masts needed for the Smart Grid, and computer Data Centres to collect and store all this information are huge consumers of energy.
Do not believe the spin about Smart Meters helping to combat climate change. Smart Meters are not environmentally friendly and are not carbon neutral.
