While the conventional medical establishment calls for the removal of “broken” or “defective” body parts, a watershed study on the long-term effects of tonsillectomy and adenoid removal calls into question the propriety of this surgery, performed on nearly half-a-million children in the United States each year

If you were a child born in the U.S. from the 1950s through the 1970s, odds are high that either you or someone you know has undergone a tonsillectomy or adenoidectomy. I was one of those children. When I was in kindergarden, I had my adenoids removed. I was already suffering from severe bronchial asthma, requiring emergency treatment at the hospital several times a year, and somtimes as often as three times a month. The adenoid surgery was performed ostensibly to ‘relieve’ sinus obstruction. But following the procedure, my symptoms worsened. By the time I was sixteen I needed another sinus obstruction surgery, this time for sinus polyps and a deviated septum.

Smart Meters causing tidal wave of mysterious illnesses that strike people in their own homes

An article here from healthnutnews.com  Kiwis, see this site for local information on health risks stopsmartmeters.org.nz   There is a page on the latter site providing testimonies of people whose symptoms stopped following removal of SMs. (Note here they are frequently called Advanced Meters). See our Smart Meter pages also.

The Article from Health Nut News:

In recent years there have been increasing reports that “smart meters” – the digitized electric meters that are designed to send usage figures to power companies wirelessly – are causing a range of health issues among a growing portion of the population where such devices are in use.

RELATED ARTICLE:

In fact, notes the EMF Safety Network, a growing number of people from around the world are beginning to report health problems they believe are related to an increased amount of wireless radiation from various devices, including smart meters.

“Utilities claim smart meters are safe, and compare them to cell phones. However, cell phones, cell towers, wi-fi and other wireless devices can also affect your health,” the organization states on its website. “Reducing your EMF exposure can benefit your overall health and wellness.”

The group also notes that the World Health Organization has classified radiation as a 2B carcinogen, and based that declaration on studies that have linked cell phone radiation to brain tumors.

Vast list of symptoms

As noted by Cancer.org, here is how the devices work:

“Smart meters talk to their central systems using RF transmissions, based on a cell phone, pager, satellite, radio, power line (PLC), Wi-Fi or Internet (TCP/IP) communication method. Internet and cell phone applications have become the preferred options because of their flexibility and ease of deployment.”

Cancer.org notes further that smart meters are typically installed outside homes and places of business to measure electricity, water and gas usage. How much RF energy people are exposed to depends on how far they are from the antenna that transmits the signal.

Steps you can take to avoid getting a smart meter

I have written a new post that outlines the steps that people can take to prevent unwanted smart meter installations; please share this widely:

www.stopsmartmeters.org.nz/latest-news/your-options-if-your-electricity-retailer-sends-you-a-notice-to-say-it-plans-to-install-a-smart-meter/

Another New Zealander who became ill after a smart meter installation has kindly shared her story; you may read it below:

http://www.stopsmartmeters.org.nz/latest-news/another-new-zealander-shares-her-experience-with-a-smart-meter/

This is some background to why people who are electrosensitive are involved in community efforts to educate others about smart meters’ effects.

http://www.stopsmartmeters.org.nz/latest-news/otago-daily-times-headline-my-advice-is-to-say-no-to-smart-meters/

An electricity company employee recently claimed that there were “no emissions” from smart meters.  This was my reply:

http://www.stopsmartmeters.org.nz/latest-news/otago-daily-times-reports-no-emissions-from-smart-meters-according-to-electricity-company-representative/

The same electricity company employee then insisted that smart meters have benefits for consumers.  You can read his assertions and my reply below:

http://www.stopsmartmeters.org.nz/government-and-electricity-industry-positions/electricity-company-employee-insists-smart-meters-have-benefits-for-consumers/

In a related post, I respond to a claim by the same electricity company employee that smart meters do not post risks to health, privacy or finances.

Are “smart” gas ideas a good idea?

I don’t think they are, personally. (A major NZ company in the smart meter industry seems to think they are a good thing however…and they are also being installed in Australia.)

Read on to learn the steps that one Australian has taken to ensure his existing (non-“smart”) gas meter cannot be replaced without his permission.

3) Request for feedback 

Have you (or friends or family) had any peculiar experiences with a smart meter such as interference with electrical equipment?

Or recorded electricity use anomalies?

Or higher bills with no change in electricity use habits?

Or have you (or a friend) had a fire at your home or business that you think may have been caused by a smart meter?

If so, you can report such events to www.stopsmartmeters.org.nz via the Contact Form.  (Reports are kept confidential; information is posted on the site only if permission is given for this to be done.)

That’s all for this update.

Thank you to everyone who has emailed to share information and is helping with the campaign by sharing information on Facebook, organising public meetings and screenings of Take Back Your Power and many other initiatives.  Your efforts are very much appreciated – and they are making a positive difference.

Wishing you the best of health,

Smart Meters: they AREN’T compulsory … learn why they’re risky in more ways than one

Do you have one of these new meters on …  or worse … in your house? Near where you sleep or work?

The little known information about smart meters … that they carry health and fire risks, will often escalate your power costs (I know of a local instance where a customer’s bill rose from $400 pmth to $1,000 pmnth!) and compromise your privacy. You will have been told prior to their installation (should you have asked questions and many don’t because after all we expect our power companies have our best interests at heart don’t we?) that it was just a standard replacement of your old and less efficient meter. That it will save you money because it won’t require a meter reader.

Copy of Hamilton-Smart-Meter-1bWell, in brief here (and I’ll provide links for you to check this out for yourself) … they are causing fires, headaches, heart problems, sinus problems and potentially, cancer … they emit RF radiation that has been classed by the World Health Organization as a Class B Carcinogen. They operate like a cell phone, transmitting data from your meter to your power company at levels way higher and more frequently than they are telling us.

Corporations are about making money and their bottom line is profits. Hence, you need, in this era, to check out what they tell you. Get independent information from investigation and research done by those who have no other interests or agenda than our collective health. Profits have skewed the playing field and the information we receive from them is not always the whole truth. Read in particular the statement made by Dr David Carpenter, a Harvard Graduate and expert for 18+ years in the field of electromagnetic fields. Smart meters were never thoroughly researched before they were rolled out he says, and yet there is plenty of research that demonstrates the RF radiation they emit is damaging to health. Prolonged exposure to these frequencies increase the risk of cancer, affects reproduction and cause electrical sensitivity.

Follow the links from the Smart Meter page on my site

Be sure to watch Josh Del Sol’s ‘Take Back Your Power’ Doco … it is a prize winning doco and covers everything you need to know. It contains some shocking revelations, particularly about the cancer risk. A university hostel room situated right next to a cell phone mast is shown to have hosted many victims of cancer deaths, year after year. This fact is uncovered by the mother of one of its victims, her young son who died of brain cancer. A heart rending story.

Ok, this is not to scare monger. Nor is it to cause you to think you have to do without these technologies. It is a warning for you to take note and protect your loved ones, and to know there are ways and means of minimizing your exposure. These aspects are only in very fine print on the manufacturers’ info leaflets … they do not want to scare you into not buying. As I continually emphasize, you need to simply do the research, be forewarned and forearmed. Knowledge is power. Be aware also, it is easier to say no to installation beforehand (they are NOT compulsory … a call center person recently admitted this to a customer I know), than to get one removed. Often folks have had to change power companies to do this. Myself included. And what they do is remove the chip that controls remote transmission of data, not the whole meter. If notifying your power company in advance (advised) that you do not consent to a smart meter installation, be succint. Your non-consent is enough and you do not have to provide a hundred reasons why you don’t want one. Another tip: consider investing in your own emf measuring device to measure emissions for yourself. There is information on Lloyd Burrell’s site (and elsewhere) about that.

An excellent site for knowledge about how to protect yourself is Lloyd Burrell’s:   http://www.electricsense.com
