AAEM Calls for Immediate Moratorium on Smart Meters on Health Concerns

“Dear Commissioners

“The Board of the American Academy of Environmental Medicine opposes the installation of wireless “smart meters” in homes and schools based on a scientific assessment of the current medical literature (references available on request). Chronic exposure to wireless radiofrequency radiation is a preventable environmental hazard that is sufficiently well documented to warrant immediate preventative public health action.

“As representatives of physician specialists in the field of environmental medicine, we have an obligation to urge precaution when sufficient scientific and medical evidence suggests health risks which can potentially affect large populations.  The literature raises serious concern regarding the levels of radio frequency (RF ‐ 3KHz – 300 GHz) or extremely low frequency (ELF – 300Hz) exposures produced by “smart meters” to warrant an immediate and complete moratorium on their use and deployment until further study can be performed.”

Thanks to Stop Smart Meters (Australia) for the story.

    Will happen in Rio de Janeiro an event which I think is relevant and a kind of sign to the world to see our fight against “ smart meters”.

    Rio +20 international conference

    see http://www.rio20.gov.br/about_the_rio_more_20

    The United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, Rio +20, will be held from 13 to 22 June 2012, in Rio de Janeiro. It is known as Rio +20 because it marks the twentieth anniversary of the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (Rio-92), and should help define the sustainable development agenda for the coming decades..
    Brazil’s petition to host Rio +20 was approved in the 6th Session of the General Assembly of the United Nations, in 2009.
    The objective of the conference is to renew political commitment to sustainable development, through the assessment of progress and gaps in the implementation of decisions made at the major summits held on the subject, and through the discussion of new and emerging issues. 
    The Conference will have two main themes:
    Green economy in the context of sustainable development and poverty eradication,
    And the institutional framework for sustainable development.
