“There is no justification for the statement that Smart Meters are safe” ~ Dr David Carpenter

In the following clip, physician and former Director at the New York State Department of Health Dr David O. Carpenter shines a light on a major problem associated with Smart Meters – their impact on our health.

The question to ask… is what is the evidence that smart meters are safe and have no adverse health effects?  The answer to that questions is: there is no such evidence. In fact, while no-one has actually done human health studies in relation to people living in homes with Smart Meters, we have evidence from a whole variety of other sources of radio-frequency exposure that demonstrates convincingly and consistently that exposure to radio-frequency radiation at elevated levels for long periods of time increases the risk of cancer, increases the damage to the nervous system, causes electro-sensitivity, has adverse reproductive effects, and a variety of other effects on different organ systems. There is no justification from the State Department that Smart Meters have no adverse health effects.

In stark contrast to Dr Carpenter’s comments, Public Health England (what was the Health Protection Agency) is taking the risks much less seriously and adopting a “suck it and see approach” to our grave health concerns:

HPA will be carrying out research to assess exposures from the devices as the technology is rolled out.

What this supposedly means is that we can all look forward to reading about PHE’s findings on Smart Meter emissions once these meters have been installed in guinea pig people’s homes across the UK.

So fingers crossed everyone – let’s hope for the best!

  1. Elevated levels?

    Guilty until proven innocent?

  2. absolute poppy cock. do you use a mobile phone at all? if the answer to that is yes then you subject yourself to far higher levels of radiation at a much closer distance. smart meters just use the mobile network to connect over gsm or cellular network. the fact the meter is at the other side of your house and most likely behind a wall means that the radiation you receive from your smart meter will be a minute fraction of the radiation you receive from carrying a mobile around with or even just travelling on public transport where others carry a phone. there has been tons and tons of research on mobile phones and the health implication which is largely negligible. so please stop this scaremongering or present the evidence of such health risks .
