Assessment of Radiofrequency Microwave Radiation Emissions from Smart Meters
This Report has been prepared to document radiofrequency radiation (RF) levels associated with wireless smart meters in various scenarios depicting common ways in which they are installed and operated. Watch also this Cindy Sage Interview (7 min) on the dangers of cell antennas, cell phones and power lines under current FCC standards.
How Smart Meters May Cause Autism and Cancer
There is increasing evidence that wireless transmissions have biological effects, some of which are harmful, at levels that may be orders of magnitude below present safety guidelines. These guidelines were drawn up on the assumption that the radiation could only damage living tissues if it generated significant heat. It has since been shown that radiation at much lower levels has direct electrical effects. These are mainly on electrically charged cell membranes, where the low frequency pulses from the modulated microwaves make them vibrate and leak. This can give rise to many "modern illnesses" ranging from electromagnetic hypersensitivity to cancer and disorders of the immune system. The most dramatic increase in the incidence of autism due to damage to the developing brains of the fetus and young children. Modulated microwaves, such as those from cell phones, portable phones, WiFi, baby monitors and wireless smart meters are sources of potentially damaging radiation. The strength of the radiation appears to be less important than the duration and pattern of the exposure, with intermittent and repeated exposure being the most damaging. The strong regular transmissions from wireless smart meters are particularly harmful and more likely to lead to DNA damage, cancer and autism. CLIP
Electromagnetic intolerance elucidated (January 17, 2012)
(...) WHO will be forced to revise its decision in the coming months. It is a societal denial that does not take account of current knowledge which is constantly evolving. [read Microwave News's coverage of conflicts of interest at WHO]. The oncologist argues the causal link between exposure to magnetic fields and leukemia is no longer in doubt. When we increase the dose, it increases the rate of leukemia. Dozens of laboratory toxicological studies have demonstrated this most clearly, in vitro as well as in animals. For her part, Ontario researcher Magda Havas of Trent University said EHS studies with negative results have major biases. The researchers assumed that reactions to EMFs are immediate, while there is often a delay between exposure and response. People are not switches that can be turned on and off. These studies incorrectly insinuate that if you can not feel anything, it can't harm you. We know very well that we can't detect the taste of arsenic, lead, DDT nor asbestos, but they are all toxic.

Smart Meters: Correcting the Gross Misinformation (July 11, 2012)
The potential dangers of electromagnetic fields and their effect on the environment (6 May 2011)
A very comprehensive report worth reading. Its mains conclusion: After analysing the scientific studies available to date, and also following the hearings for expert opinions organised in the context of the Committee on the Environment, Agriculture and Local and Regional Affairs, there is sufficient evidence of potentially harmful effects of electromagnetic fields on fauna, flora and human health to react and to guard against potentially serious environmental and health hazards. (...) According to the EEA, there are sufficient signs or levels of scientific evidence of harmful biological effects to invoke the application of the precautionary principle and of effective, urgent preventive measures. It has led to the adoption last May 27, 2011, by the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, of the Resolution 1815

(...) Undertaken robustly, the development of bio-friendly 'smart' technology and robust grids can provide the opening for real progressive change and a truly dynamic revolution where both eco- sustainability and bio-sustainability 'kick start' the future.
Is your cell phone killing you? (July 5, 2011)
A 4 minute review of a documentary from New Zealand. The effects of our ever increasing electromagnetic-filled environment. "Is Your Cell Phone Killing You? is an unflinching look at the issue of health effects from cell phones and other EMF radiation sources we are all exposed to. Shot in New Zealand, the film is relevant to every community in the world, for we all share the same biology and similar legal and political systems when it comes to how the industry propagated this harmful technology onto an unknowing public. Refreshingly free of industry bias, even though it asks the question, the film leaves no doubt at the end that “Yes indeed, your cell phone may be killing you!” For anyone who uses a cell phone or lives in an area where there are cell towers, antennas or power lines and has ever doubted the relationship between EM radiation and health effects, this film is a must see!!!" - Elizabeth Barris, Director, American Association For Cell Phone Safety & Documentary Filmmaker. More details through http://isyourcellphonekillingyou.com/
Disconnect is a documentary that exposes the truth behind the negative health effects of cell phones. Globally, 5 billion people own mobile devices but few know the potential harm they are causing. Through extensive research and interviews with the worlds leading doctors, scientists, politicians, activists, and victims; Disconnect traces the rise of a rogue industry and unveils the corrosive relationships which have corrupted public health. Severe adverse health effects have been associated with long-term microwave radiation exposure from cell phones. Many doctors and scientists believe brain tumors, infertility, and breast cancer are correlated with cumulative cell phone use.
Full Signal - Documentary (Trailer)
As our obsession with mobile technology has grown, an army of antenna have cropped up: behind houses, hidden in church bell towers, even disguised as trees. This crafted documentary cracks open the debate surrounding the global health risk they pose.
"When I'm near a mobile phone, the burning goes through my entire body", "I have had cancer twice." Voices of anger emanate from a hyper-communicative concrete jungle. A city that rings with a million mobile phone calls, and which pulses with the invisible radioactive signals, which could be making you seriously ill. Whilst the industry will always be quick to dismiss the costs of the multi-billion dollar Telecom machine, leading scientists say more studies must be done: "This is the world's largest biological experiment ever". How can we explain the shocking rise in brain tumours, lou gehrig's disease, and Parkinsons, since the onset of GSM technology in 1997? Medical writer, Blake Levitt refers to thirteen studies which have shown that low level radiation exposure leads to "breaks in your DNA". Yet Doctor Slevin suggests just why findings are still inconclusive: "You should know who wrote the health standards, which is the Motorolas, and Nokias of the world". For those suffering from electro-hypersensitivity, the problem is patently clear. CLIP

Humanity at Risk by daily electromagnetic fields - Urgent need for a precautionary approach
Interphone Study Design Flaws (8 min 26 sec)
Lloyd Morgan, B.Sc., lead author of the landmark report, "Cellphones and Brain Tumors: 15 Reasons for Concern", discusses the flaws in the Interphone study that render it unreliable as a gauge of risk of brain tumors from cell phones. The 11 design flaws grossly understimate the risk, and even still, the Interphone study, just pubished in the International Journal of Epidemiology, still shows statistically significant increased risk of brain tumors after 10 years of cellphone use. This is ominous because toxicants often take decades to show tumor risks, and we are seeing it at just 10 years. Cell phone usage rates in the Interphone study were just a fraction of cell phone usage rates today among adults and children alike. Finally, without explanation, results were not pubished for acoustic neuromas and salivary gland tumors which are the tumors closest to the ear against which one places the cell phone.

Opinion of the International EMF Alliance (IEMFA) on the need for Independent and Credible Environmental Assessment
The IEMFA - aims and scope -- The IEMFA is a young and growing umbrella organisation affiliating over 50 non governmental grassroots organisations from over 20 countries in five continents, advocating for a precautionary approach to electromagnetic pollution, relevant public information on prevention and risk, an adequate support to patients with electro-hypersensitivity syndrome (EHS), and an increased funding of independent research on EMF health effects. The IEMFA is supported by a growing body of independent scientific and medical experts on living processes, with a multilevel, multidisciplinary health focus.
The IEMFA aims to disseminate coherent information and advice to national and international health authorities and policy-makers on the rapidly growing evidence of actual and potential effects on health and wellbeing by non-ionizing electromagnetic fields (EMF). The IEMFA also addresses other stakeholders and individuals with an interest in the subject.
The IEMFA urges governments, health authorities and citizens to take precautionary measures, and proposes a new set of standards. The new guidelines for human exposure to EMF as presented in THE SELETUN RESOLUTION were published in Review of Environmental Health by a consortium of independent international scientists. These significantly lower recommendations compared to today's situation are based on the latest body of evidence in biological sciences and on the potential public-health and environmental implications of the unprecedented global exposures to EMF.
The IEMFA's rational public health vision challenges the present ICNIRP health protection guidelines, which are outdated and inadequate according to today's scientific and empirical evidence, but still supported by the World Health Organisation. We argue that the quasi-monopoly of the ICNIRP 'no risk interpretation' on EMF is arbitrary and unsound, and suggest that corporate and military interest groups play a determinant role to maintain the situation. The IEMFA concludes that the situation in the EMF field is a relevant example of the obvious and urgent need for independent, pluralist and multidisciplinary expertise in environmental risk assessment and regulation.

The BioInitiative Report - Biological Standards for Wireless (38 min)
Cindy Sage, environmental consultant, talks about The BioInitiative Report: A Rationale for a Biologically-based Public Exposure Standard for Electromagnetic Fields (ELF and RF), which she editied with a team of international scientists. They document serious scientific concerns about current limits regulating how much EMF is allowable from power lines, cell phones, and many other sources of EMF exposure in daily life. The report concludes the existing standards for public safety are inadequate to protect public health. Find out more at http://www.bioinitiative.org

Health Canada Admits Studies on Cell Phones Convincing Enough To Promote Limited Use (December 9, 2011)
Ignorance may or may not be bliss, but one thing is certain -- it is very profitable. At least that's what cell phone companies count on to increase their bottom line. Health Canada may not be the most reputable agency when it comes to protecting the health of Canadians, but a promising initiative from the regulating body is proposing to adopt a precautionary approach and guidelines for limited cellphone use. Canadians are encouraged to limit cellphone call length and to text message or use a hands-free device whenever possible (to increase the distance between the cellphone and the user's head). Those under 18 should be especially careful to limit all cellphone use. Children are still growing and are therefore much more sensitive to external agents such as radiation.
(...) Every year, hundreds of reputable experts and scientists are accumulating evidence which concur with an exponentially growing body of research which clearly validates the fact that wireless devices are indeed a public health risk and one not to be taken lightly.

Have you ever wondered where the electricity is coming from to power the smart meters? As you'll find in New Critical Problem with 'Smart' Meters: The Switching-Mode Power Supply, there is in each meter a power supply whose function is to 'step down' the 240v alternating current (AC) coming in from the utility pole power lines to the 2 to 10 volts of direct current (DC) required to run the meter's digital electronics which record the electricity usage data. The SMPS function emits sharp spikes of millisecond bursts constantly, 24/7. This function is on all smart meters used by all utilities and is on constantly, 24/7. Such spikes are known as 'dirty electricity' and can be conducted to a human body that is within the range of the radiating field. Apparently, this 'dirty electricity' generated by the e-meters' switching power supplies that is a major contributor to the symptoms being reported by growing numbers of people in association with the e-meters thus far installed.
Everything you ever want to know about dirty electricity
Voltage Transients and Health - Is There a Connection?
There is a man, Samuel Milham, who wrote a book entitled DIRTY ELECTRICITY: Electrification and the Diseases of Civilization that explains How Dirty Electricity Causes Diseases
For over a hundred years, it has been assumed that the higher incidence of diseases in urban areas was related to lifestyle. But according to Electromagnetic Health: "Analyzing death records from electrified rural areas and non-electrified rural areas in the early part of the 1900s, Milham has shown higher incidence of 'diseases of civilization,' such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes and suicide, were in fact strongly correlated with electrification."
People living in most cities and suburbs are literally bathed in a variety of electromagnetic fields, microwave radiation and dirty electricity 24/7. If we refuse to address the potential hazards of this way of life, we may end up with a currently inconceivable health catastrophe on a worldwide scale.
In an interview with Dr. Milham, he begins with a discussion of the very low incidence of many diseases among one sect of the Amish that uses no electricity whatsoever, and his finding that doctors there report no ADHD in children. Another very interesting learning from this interview is that EMF risk from cell towers is not only from the radiation (RF) being emitted (i.e. the microwave radiation), but from the dirty electricity the operation of the tower puts onto the electrical system in the neighborhood, suggesting anyone who lives near a tower might be well advised to check the level of Dirty Electricity with a Graham Stetzer meter.
