Why are officials arresting mothers and even taking their neighbors to jail for resisting the installation of smart meters on their homes and videotaping the intrusion onto private property? There is a big different between a RF (radio frequency) exposure which an individual chooses to accept, and one that is forced upon them when they can do nothing about it.
Two Naperville, Illinois mothers were arrested recently, after they tried to block utility workers from installing new “smart meters”. Their arrests were the culmination of a two-year battle against “smart meter” installation in Naperville. Officers were forced to cut open a lock on the homeowner’s back gate to allow crews to access her meter. She refused to open the gate herself. When the homeowner stood in front of her old meter to block the crews, she was arrested for interfering with a police officer. Her neighbor was arrested for shooting video of what the police officers were doing outside of her neighbor’s house.
Several hundred Naperville residents had previously opposed the wireless “smart meters” citing concerns about possible health problems that might be caused by the meters’ wireless signal which is always on. The biggest danger from RF meters may be from the signals they give off while reporting their data to the central utility office. Pulsing microwave radiation is the most dangerous electromagnetic radiation to the human brain and body.
Dangerous Side-Effects Experienced
There are many potentially dangerous side-effects associated with smart meters. People are experiencing dental problems, from aching teeth to a constant tingling sensation. Some experience aches in their legs which only get worse at night. Others are finding that they don’t experience restful sleep at night. Thousands of people have reported ringing in the ears, insomnia, headaches, dizziness, nausea, heart irregularities, memory loss, immune system disorders, high white blood cell counts, chronic fatigue and anxiety after a smart meter was installed on their houses or businesses.
In May of 2011, the World Health Organization officially recognized that wireless radiation such as that emitted by smart meters is a possible carcinogen. People who suffer from Electromagnetic Sensitivity (ES) also seem to be especially vulnerable to the effects of a smart meter. A study by the Association for Comprehensive NeuroTherapy reports that there may be a correlation between fetal (pre-natal) or neo-natal (new-born) exposures to radiofrequency radiation and the increase in the incidents of autism.
Another phenomenon reported by smart meter users was the absence of pollinators in customer’s yards. Residents report the absence of bees, butterflies, hummingbirds and other small insects since the meters were installed. Some studies are reporting that RF radiation may be a contributing factor to Colony Collapse Disorder experienced in beehives.
Other Developing Problems
There is a second transmitter in a smart meter, called a “Zigbee”. This is a transmitter that the utility companies are not even talking about now. There are plans for this transmitter to control up to 15 other “smart appliances” in your home. These appliances could be anything with a motor on it including your furnace, refrigerator, dishwasher and even your computer. If someone else is able to control our appliances in the name of “environmetalism” and “saving the earth”, then who is to say that they won’t control them in an abusive way sometime in the future?
Studies have shown that this RF signal could be extremely dangerous when used in addition to all the other wireless devices available today. Such wireless devices may include cell phones, Wi-Fi routers, baby monitors, cordless phones as well as at least 30 other devices that emit a pulse radiation. In addition, many smart meters are close to beds, kitchens, playrooms and other similar locations. These wireless systems are never off and the exposure is increased with proximity and the duration of time exposed to the radiation.
There are 52 communities in British Columbia that have asked that a moratorium be placed on the installation of smart meters in the province pending further study. Currently, there is an increasing involuntary exposure of pulsed microwave radiation to many millions of human beings. Pulsed microwave frequencies are perhaps even more harmful than the continuous wave type. Yet, this is not considered in the FCC guidelines that allowed for “smart meter” installation. Not enough is known yet about the long-term health consequences of chronic RF exposure.
The only real benefit of the smart meters is economic in nature benefitting the utility companies. If they install smart meters, then they can then fire those people who are currently employed to read the meters. As a result, this is an employment killing proposal which will just worsen our current unemployment problems.
UPDATE: (6/7/2013) “Smart grid technology” is coming to your town – whether you like it or not. But, many health experts are questioning the sanity of such efforts.
UPDATE: (6/24/2013) Shocking News – Talk about authorities snooping into every thing you do in your home. Now they have devised a way to know if you are taking their poison! Now your doctor will really be able to make sure that your children (or you yourself) are receiving and ingesting their medications!
I wish you the best of “believing” in all of your future endeavors,
