Video: Brenda Hawk has a pacemaker for her heart and because her brain was injured in a car accident, she requires a breathing machine in order to sleep at night. She does not want the new radio-frequency emitting meter because of the health problems these devices have been said to cause. But American Electric Power AEP-Ohio, the local power company, has persisted in their push to swap out Hawk’s analog meter and replace it with the new one.

It's the radio frequencies that worry people such as Pauline Holeton, 61, of Shelby Township, who has spoken out against the high-tech meters. She and others are worried about privacy and health issues from the radio waves. [Editor Note: These effects have been well documented since the 1950s.]

 As a multitude of hazardous wireless technologies are deployed in homes, schools and workplaces, government officials and industry representatives continue to insist on their safety despite growing evidence to the contrary. A major health crisis looms that is only hastened through the extensive deployment of "smart grid" technology.

In America, utility companies have been hit with multi-million dollar class action lawsuits from people who have had the devices installed in their homes.

The move is a victory for campaign groups and backbench MPs, who raised concerns with ministers that the devices emit electromagnetic radiation 24 hours a day and cannot be turned off.

National Physicians Board Opposes Smart Meters Due to Health Threats

"The current medical literature raises credible questions about genetic and cellular effects, hormonal effects, male fertility, blood/brain barrier damage and increased risk of certain types of cancers from RF or ELF levels similar to those emitted from "smart meters". Children are placed at particular risk for altered brain development, and impaired learning and behavior... Existing safety limits for pulsed RF were termed "not protective of public health" by the Radiofrequency Interagency Working Group (a federal interagency working group including the FDA, FCC, OSHA, the EPA and others). Hence, we call for: • An immediate moratorium on "smart meter" installation until these serious public health issues are resolved. Continuing with their installation would be extremely irresponsible. • Modify the revised proposed decision to include hearings on health impact in the second proceedings, along with cost evaluation and community wide opt-out. • Provide immediate relief to those requesting it and restore the analog meters."

For a long-range cost-effective environmentally safe solution, we should push for metering over (via) landlines. Most structures already have copper landlines going into them, so a vast national infrastructure already exists. Plus, AT&T is petitioning the FCC to allow them to abandon their entire landline network anyway. 

Connecticut Attorney General: “The pilot results showed no beneficial impact on total energy usage,” Jepsen said. “And, the savings that were seen in the pilot were limited to certain types of customers and would be far outweighed by the cost of installing the new meter systems,” he said.
