Authors note: The electric company claims that it is a myth that what they're attaching to every single home and business causes people to get sick. They claim that these meters are harmless. There are many scientists and a growing number of the general public who know from experience that their claim of harmless couldn't be farther from the truth. Please forward this blog entry to others. It may very well help them find the answer to their mystery illness or save them from becoming sick. We all have a right to be informed.
In January of this year everyone in my home started having random health issues. While most of our symptoms were different, they seemed to get worse in February. By the first week of March, it was getting ridiculous. I saw a post for Sedona’s Smart Meter Awareness campaign on Facebook and I wondered - what kind of meter did we have and where was it located? Turns out, APS (our electric company) replaced our analog meter with a digital meter without our knowledge or our consent. The meter’s location - one foot from where I work and sleep. I did some research and realized that every single one of our symptoms was on a list of possible symptoms caused by automated meters. We called APS and demanded they replace the digital meter with a non-transmitting analog meter - which they did the next day. That very day, everyone’s symptoms started to dissipate. Coincidence? I think not.
While some of my symptoms (such as a burning pain in my head) did go away, I began to feel the full effect of the harm this digital meter and the dirty electricity it created had caused. “Dirty electricity is a spiky, pulsed, highly variable electrical current that rides through all the circuitry of a building. It has devastating health effects." (1) I spent 9 days in bed. My muscles and nerves were constantly burning or tingling. I felt like I was in a state of toxic shock. I still have a hard time concentrating. I mainly work from my computer and now I can only use it short periods of time. These symptoms were caused by a digital meter which is a step down from a smart meter. If we were all ill from a digital meter, I shudder to think what a smart meter would do to our health.
These “smart” meters are being implemented across the U.S. and in other countries. My question is - why? The World Health Organization has classified them as a Class B carcinogen. There are hundreds of thousands of people who have become sick due to these meters. The job of the electric company is to provide us with electricity – not impair our health. Plus, smart meters are replacing jobs – a lot of jobs. The so-called benefits of these smart meters are heavily outweighed by the detriment they actually cause.
Here is a list of symptoms associated with automated (digital/smart) meters:
* Sleep problems (insomnia, difficulty falling asleep, night waking, nightmares)
* Stress, agitation, anxiety, irritability * Headaches, sharp pain or pressure in the head
* Ringing in the ears, ear pain, high pitched ringing * High blood pressure
* Concentration, memory or learning problems * Fatigue, muscle or physical weakness
* Disorientation, dizziness, or balance problems * Changes in menstrual cycle
* Eye problems, including eye pain, pressure in the eyes * Urinary problems
* Arthritis, body pain, sharp, stabbing pains * Skin rashes, facial flushing
* Cardiac symptoms, heart palpitations, heart arrhythmias, chest pain * Seizures
* Leg cramps, or neuropathy * Sinus problems, nose bleeds
* Nausea, flu-like symptoms * Respiratory problems, cough, asthma
* Endocrine disorders, thyroid problems, diabetes
* Hyperactivity or changes in children’s behavior * Recurrence of cancer (2)
The best website I’ve found so far is emfanalysis. They give you information in a straightforward, organized manner along with a ton of references and resources. There, you will find information about EHS - electro-hypersensitivity - which is trending to be a side effect of automated meter exposure. With EHS, you are super sensitive to cell phones, lap tops, cell towers and wifi. In regards to EHS: “Approximately 3% - 5% of people are moderately affected, with another 20-25% of people being slightly affected. Less than 1% of the population is severely affected, but the numbers are rapidly increasing with the exponential rise in EMF pollution in our homes and communities. Even if you do not feel the effects of EMF pollution, your biology is still being damaged by this invisible pollution. Thus, all humans are electro-sensitive to a degree.” (3) Those with EHS and those of us who are recognizing the harm caused by automated meters are like smoke alarms telling you there’s a fire. Or, if you will, we are the canary in the coal mine.
If you care about your health, if you care about the health of your family, your children, your pets – do some research. If this doesn’t sway you, you may also want to check with your insurance company as these are not always covered in case of fire. “Libber heads the group, Maryland Smart Meter Awareness, and is a former attorney for the Environmental Protection Agency. He warns the fires and overheating should be cause for concern. "You've got safety issues. They've been linked to over 900 fires nationwide," he claims.” (4)
For those of you in Arizona – the ACC has blocked APS from charging any opt-out fees until the Health Department has determined that smart meters are safe. They will be installing smart meters in Sedona by the end of March. You still have time to opt-out. Call APS and demand to opt-out, or if they’ve already replaced your meter, demand they reinstall a non-transmitting analog meter. If you have experienced any symptoms from a digital or smart meter, it is imperative that you contact the ACC. I’d be happy to provide you with the details.
