Ridiculous. There is a very severe difference between holding a radio transmitter right next to your brain pan (cell phone), and having one (smart meter) sitting in your basement/garage at many yards removal. The “1/r^2” law applies.
This is about the DUMBEST article I’ve ever seen!
Folks this is pure BS!
First off, smart meters only transmit after they’ve received a request for informaiton.
Second the time of transmission is measured in milliseconds; an eye blink is about 50 milliseconds and this is transmission is less than half that.
Third, walk outside on a nice sonny day... Congradulations, you’ve just been exposed to 1,000 times more radiation than this thing!
What a bunch of effing trolls...
Our local fire department isn’t so much interested in the smart meters as they are the digital meters due to a high rate of fires starting at the meters.
Smart Meters and the author of the story ain’t so smart. Probably drives around in a Smart Car too.
My Smart Meters are watching me.
Wear copper wrist bands.
Smart Meters are Big Brother in waiting.
I odn’t object to Smart Meters because of health effects. This strikes me as fear-mongering of the most silly sort. But I have to say, I don’t like smart meters because I don’t like having that much information automatically transmitted about my activities.
The issue is not cancer. The issue is privacy.
If you look at all the ways information is being collected about you every day. Web searches, credit cards, scanned emails, intercepted phone calls, cell phone GPS, gun permits, shopping patterns, social networking, tax records... It is possible to reconstruct your entire life from records that are being spun off every day without your knowledge or consent. Now smart meters are broadcasting when you are home and when you are away.
That is about as rational as the idea that a ten watt cell transponder on a tower 150 feet over your head is gonna cause a brain tumor.
But if this is what it takes to stop an Eeeeeeevil government from taking control of all the on/off switches in my house, let’s shout it from the rooftops!!!
I only have one warning in regard to smart meters... I live in a mid-century house and it took the power company 5 tries to install one that worked. It also meant a week with only partial power. The new meters are very sensitive and most of the installers they send out are barely technicians. If they use any force to click them into place the connection tabs may bend and later arc the power. Finally they sent a crew that knew how to install a meter properly. And no, the power company will not refund me the cost of having an electrician come out initially to diagnose the issue and determine it wasn’t an inside problem.
“...smart meters and cell towers produce microwaves that go out in all directions and immerse the body in RFR which increases the risk of overexposure to sensitive organs such as the eyes and testicles.”
Perfect! Load up the big city liberal bastions, and sterilize em!
Ah - this old tripe.
I thought the article would address the dangers of giving the power company the ability to control your power consumption for those that must have electricity (to keep medicines cool, for example).
