Smart Meters health concerns are highlighting the need for
EMF protection. Severe symptoms of electro-sensitivity are
reported by many for the first time, once smart meters are
installed near their living space. EarthCalm readers, in the
following article EMF Safety Network provides a thorough
overview of the issues involved.

Smart Meters are one part of the new “Smart Grid” system.
They are designed to allow the utility company and the
consumer to track and control their energy usage.
The Utility Reform Network, State Senator Dean Florez, the
City and County of San Francisco, Santa Cruz and Marin
County Board of Supervisors, Sonoma County Supervisor Efren
Carrillo, the cities of Sebastopol, Berkeley, Cotati,
Fairfax, Santa Cruz, Piedmont, Scotts Valley, Capitola,
Sausalito, Bolinas, Camp Meeker and The EMF Safety Network
are calling for a moratorium on Smart Meters.
mart Meters are radio transmitters, sending radiofrequency
microwave radiation (RF) signals from both electric and gas
meters. The electric meter has two transmitters. One RF
signal is sent directly into your home (or business), and
the other to a neighborhood data collector, which could be
located on a lamppost, telephone pole, building or a home.
Homes will also be used as repeaters for neighborhood RF
Smart Grid proponents are expecting consumers to install a
Home Area Network, which includes an RF interior display
unit and either retrofit or purchase new RF “smart”
appliances to learn how to manage and reduce their
electricity usage. Installing these interior devices will
allow the Utility company to further control the electric
grid, by turning off certain appliances during peak use
time, if needed.
PG&E has been unable to give us a consistent, believable,
straight answer about how often the meters transmit RF, or
what the instantaneous peak power of the RF signal is at
certain distances. They do not know what the RF exposure
levels will be for a home with multiple meters installed.
They claim the meters transmit RF six times a day, or they
say once an hour. Other RF experts have measured RF
transmissions every 45 seconds. Why is PG&E hiding the
numbers? Do they know what they are doing?
here are no RF warning signs and at this time you cannot opt
out. Vulnerable groups include the EMF Sensitive, people
with medical implants, children, pregnant women, seniors and
the immune compromised.
ealth impacts include sleep disturbance, headaches, nausea,
anxiety, heart palpitations, tinnitus and ear pain,
concentration and memory problems, dizziness, speech (loss
of words), immune, nervous and hormonal system impacts,
behavior problems in children, DNA strand breaks, and long
term risk of cancers.

Smart Meters don’t run backwards, and are therefore
incompatible with solar panel installations. PG&E has
reported over 43,000 Smart Meter problems of one kind or
another Over three thousand complaints have been received by
the CPUC for safety, RF impacts, EMF’s, opting out,
moratorium, requests to remove, and for other numerous
reasons. (that doesn’t include billing complaints)
