Smart meters cook us with thousands of microwave pulses every day, while collecting our private information for the utility company
If you have smart meters in your neighborhood – and there’s a good chance you do – you’re being cooked with thousands of microwave pulses every day. To add insult to injury, the devices are also collecting people’s private information and transmitting it to utility companies.
These digital meters can now be found in 65 million homes around America, and more and more of them are being installed on a constant basis. They communicate via non-ionizing radiation spikes and collect information several times per minute, emitting their signals at anywhere between 10,000 to 200,000 pulses per day.
This constant bombardment leaves the body without any time to recover from the onslaught. The radiation emitted from these meters is 100 times greater than that given off by cell phones, and unlike cell phones, they can’t be turned off by users.
What are these microwave signals doing to our bodies? Experts say they affect everything from our heart rate to our ability to concentrate and our sleep patterns. The shape of people’s blood cells physically changes in proximity to smart meters. Children, the elderly and pregnant women are particularly vulnerable to the dangers posed by smart meters.
As if that weren’t bad enough, The Medical Director of Switzerland’s Paracelsus Clinic, Dr. Thomas Rau, said that such electromagnet loads can cause migraines, Parkinson’s disease, insomnia, heart arrhythmias, attention deficit disorder, and cancer. The World Health Organization agreed, classifying non-ionizing radiation officially as a Class 2B carcinogen like lead.
It is also important to keep in mind that the long-term health impacts of using smart meters have not been researched thoroughly because the technology is relatively new. Therefore, the assurances of safety that utility companies like to give carry little weight.
