People Believe Wi-Fi Is Making Them Sick

Docs have to get on board with understanding EHS.  This is not necessarily true about the symptoms being in one’s head.  I can attest to the fact, as well as it documented and in public record that my sickness due to smart meters was an unknown at the time I filed formal complaints with the utilities and State regulatory agencies.  We did  not discover the meter on our home until 2 years after the initial complaints were filed.  So the idea of smart meters was not even in my consciousness.  It is very disturbing to hear this kind of ignorance coming from those who are supposed to be healers.  It is very dangerous and counter productive to the truth….Sandaura

BOSTON (CBS) – Wi-Fi is all around us, but most people never give it a second thought.

A number of people, however, believe all those invisible rays are making them sick.

In the Lawson home, the only phone is a landline. Even the teenagers don’t have cell phones. Annura Lawson said quite simply, “I want to live.” She is very concerned about potential side effects from Wi-Fi.

Lawson believes the emergence of health problems coincided with the installation of a wireless water meter. She felt better after it was removed.

Then, the school where she teaches went wireless and her symptoms returned.

An 8th grade English teacher, Lawson testified before her board of education about her Wi-Fi concerns.

“I’m the mother of six children,” Lawson told the board. “I want to see them grow up, and when I’m in the Wi-Fi classroom, I don’t feel good at all.”

Dr. Robert Nagourney, an oncologist, explained some patients suffer from a syndrome called Electromagnetic Hyper Sensitivity.

“There are two kinds of radiation that we speak about: one is ionizing, and other is non-ionizing. In ionizing radiation, clearly there’s a great risk of DNA damage, mutation, and cancer,” added Dr. Nagourney.

This danger has not been proven by non-ionizing radiation which is the type emitted by cell phones, smart meters, and Wi-Fi.

With the explosion of wireless devices, everyone’s exposure to non-ionizing radiation has increased dramatically.

“We are bathed in this type of radiation,” said Dr. Nagourney. “Does it cause medical illness? Great question, difficult to answer.”

David Carpenter, an environmental scientist, believes there is strong evidence this is a “real syndrome that causes real harm to real people.”

Carpenter estimates about 5% of the population is Wi-Fi sensitive. Many have no idea was is making them sick. “They walk around feeling ill, and they don’t know what to do about it.”

That’s what Suzanne Hoyt says happened to her, after she had Wi-Fi installed in her apartment. She felt pain in her jaws and her chest. “It was like the physical expansion of the heart.”

Dr. William Barr, a neuropsychologist, does not believe the evidence is there to support a link between Wi-Fi and illness. Patients “establish a belief that something has the potential to cause the symptom, and then when they come in contact with the cause, they develop those symptoms.”

Dr. Nagourney believes there could something to the problems patients say they are experiencing. “People have different sensitives. One person can get a bee sting and nothing happens. Another person goes into anaphylactic shock. Same bee sting, different reaction.”

In addition to heart palpitations, other common complaints include headaches and dizziness. It is important to keep in mind there are many conditions which cause these symptoms.

Power Line Communication turns electrical wires into radiating antennas

Power Line Communication turns

electrical wires into radiating antennas

Power line communication uses existing power lines and household wiring

for communication. An unintended consequence of these systems is that

they turn the power lines into antennas that radiate into homes from the

outside, and also from the wires within a home.

What is power line communication?

Power line communication (PLC) uses existing power lines and household

wiring for communication. It is used for a variety of functions, such as

computer networking, utility control systems and smart grid.

In some areas, PLC is used to provide internet services to households and

small businesses. This is often referred to as Broadband over Powerlines,

BPL or BB-PLC.

Some utilities use PLC to remotely read their electrical meters and are

experimenting with various smart grid functions to control appliances in the

household, sometimes also using PLC.

Power companies have used PLC for decades to control remote switching

stations and other equipment, by sending PLC signals over long distances

on their high-voltage transmission lines. The utilities refer to their use of

PLC as Power Line Carrier (also PLC).

PLC is called PLT (Power Line Telecommunication) in some countries.

Unintentional antennas

All types of PLC systems turn the electrical wires into unintentional

antennas. Since the PLC users continue to maintain that it is not true, this

document goes to great lengths to refute them.

When electrical signals travel along a wire, that wire will radiate the signals

into the air. This can sometimes make electronic equipment malfunction,

2 PLC antenna effect

which is referred to as Electromagnetic Interference (EMI). The

engineering specialty that deals with these kinds of problems is called EMC

(Electromagnetic Compatibility). 1, 2,3

Cables intended for data communication such as coax, telephone wires and

twisted-pair are all designed to limit the antenna effect.

The electrical wires inside a house and along the street were not designed

this way, as they were never intended to carry communication signals. It is

even common for wires on poles to be separated from each other, which

enhances the antenna effect. The miles of electrical wires in a

neighborhood can act as a very large antenna.

We refer engineers and other technical people to the appendix for more

details.

Using household wires as antennas

In a few cases, the wires in a home are used as intentional antennas. The

most common use is by electricians who need to locate hidden wires. They

plug a small device into an outlet, which sends signals out onto the

household wires (usually in the lower kilohertz range). The electrician then

uses a small handheld wireless receiver to locate the wires.

Another use is PowerLine Positioning (PLP).4 This can be used to locate

people in a building, if they wear special tags which receive the signals

from the wiring in the walls.

Household wires are sometimes used to transmit the wireless signals of an

AM radio station serving a small area, such as student housing on a college

campus. These are called carrier current stations.5

PLC systems as transmitters

The early PLC systems used low frequencies, which were not a problem for

telecommunication. As faster PLC systems were introduced, they started

using higher frequencies that were getting close to those used for

telecommunication. Users of short wave radio (HAM radio), emergency

services and radio astronomy became concerned that the PLC signals would

spill up into the bands they were using, causing interference.

Radio amateurs started complaining about interferences with their radios.

The PLC industry responded by denying there were any problems at all.6

MEMPHIS-Family claims MLGW smart meter was on burned house

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) – Members of a Whitehaven family made it out alive when their home went up in flames over the weekend. Now, they suspect a controversial smart meter may have sparked the blaze.

“Nine people got out of the house,” said relative Sherry Mackey. “My cousin, her six kids, my aunt and my uncle,” she added. “It’s just by the grace of God,” she said.

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) – Members of a Whitehaven family made it out alive when their home went up in flames over the weekend. Now, they suspect a controversial smart meter may have sparked the blaze.”Nine people got out of the house,” said relative Sherry Mackey. “My cousin, her six kids, my aunt and my uncle,” she added. “It’s just by the grace of God,” she said.

The house first caught fire before a van in the carport exploded. The fire department determined the cause was electrical in nature, and the family wonders if an electrical meter played a role.

“They put a smart meter on the house,” said Mackey.

Smart meters are a more efficient way of tracking energy usage and are part of a $240 million MLGW modernization proposal. The devices
have sparked controversy, and some believe they can even start fires.  MLGW was adamant there was no smart meter at the house that caught fire.

“That’s a lie,” said Mackey. “My uncle works on the house all of the time and he and other family members saw the smart meter on
the house,” she added.

An MLGW spokesman said technicians seen in the area after the fire were there to secure services and make sure other customers were
not affected.  The family claims workers removed the meter from charred debris.

“I would hope that Memphis Light, Gas, and Water would take responsibility for it,” said Mackey.

MLGW currently uses three types of meters and believes the family may have confused a digital meter for a smart meter. Again, MLGW said there is no record of a smart meter being used at the house.

Electric ‘smart meter’ meant to spy on us

Posted: Tuesday, June 9, 2015 12:15 am

Yesterday, I caved to organizations bent on stealing my privacy and controlling me: I allowed a PECO technician to install the newest “smart meter” on our house. I have a sense of defeat hanging over me.

I allowed the change because PECO threatened me, in writing, that it would shut off our electrical power if I did not allow installation. Second, my husband is turning age 80 this year, and I cannot expect him to run and maintain a generator.

Numerous electric companies, with the legal approval of local and state governments, are taking our liberties away from us. The technological culprit is the “smart meter,” the devious product manufactured to spy on and control our lives.

The new Landis+Gyr meter will report to the utility company (read government agency) how much hot water we use, what time of day we do laundry, how cool we keep our house, how many refrigerators we have, how many hours we watch television and use computers. The data-keeping will apply to every electrical product in the house, as every new appliance is equipped with a chip that reports to the “smart meter,” which sends information to the electric company.

When the electric company (read: government) is alerted to high levels of usage in a given area, the power will be rationed to our house for whatever reason those brilliant government officials decide.

You have no doubt heard of the deleterious effects of wireless devices (cellphones and computers) causing physical harm. Small wireless devices’ harm pales in comparison to what the “smart meters” will wreak upon the inhabitants of the house. The reason why there is so much radiation flowing is because the meter continuously reports usage to the electric company. Proponents will tell you that minute signals cause no harm. But when the signals are sent numerous times, the health risks increase drastically.

Utility companies, including PECO, justify the new technology on the basis of lowering the costs of operations to the consumer. However, a current request by PECO asks for approval to increase rates. Go figure.

CALIFORNIA-David Adams: Hazards of smart meters well documented

THE UNION

David Adams: Hazards of smart meters well documented

In The Union’s previous reporting on the proposal to ban electrical utility “smart meters” in Nevada City, major parts of the relevant information are missing.

The quoted PG&E spokeswoman’s attempt to pass the blame for the smart meters program off to the CPUC is disingenuous as best; both these parties were in long-term, probably illegal collusion to launch this program in California, as documented at http://www.healthfreedoms.org/smart-meter-scandal-in-california-emails-reveal-cpuc-may-have-known-and-concealed-health-risks-and-other-problems/.

One can’t rely on PG&E for accurate scientific information or on the California Council on Science and Technology or even the American Cancer Society — and certainly not the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), which has refused to regulate use of this low-frequency/Wi-Fi/microwave kind of radiation at all. Their loose standards only apply to heat effects from high-frequency radiation.

A thoughtful and well-informed reportage needs to keep in mind that the manufacture and sale of the various devices that use and emit this kind of radiation is a more-than-a-trillion-dollar-a-year business, and that the corporations involved have enormous wealth and power, including an unhealthy revolving-door-staff influence on the federal government organizations, like the FCC, which are supposed to regulate the safety of their products for the public good rather than corporate profit. The proposed exposure limits in the 2012 Bioinitiative Report (designed to protect against the negative biological effects found in 67 key scientific studies) are one million times lower than current FCC limits.

The fact is that there are many, many thousands (one estimate is more than 20,000) of peer-reviewed, published scientific studies going back to the 1970s that mostly demonstrate a wide range of neurological and physiological damage from prolonged exposure to the kind of low-frequency radiation generated by smart meters (especially the non-industry-funded studies). These include not only various cancers, but single- and double-strand breaks in cellular DNA, irreversible mitochondrial damage to DNA, other chromosomal aberrations and mutations (e.g., Down syndrome), lowering of male sperm count and motility, greater risk of miscarriages and fetal abnormalities, breakdown of the blood-brain barrier allowing potentially toxic chemicals and proteins to enter the brain, altered brainwave and metabolic activity, racing heart rate (tachycardia), damage to cellular membranes in the body (leading to cell deaths), and causing red blood cells to leak hemoglobin, which can lead to heart disease or kidney stones.

It would be a progressive step if the Nevada City Council would agree to recognize the difficult truth of Wi-Fi radiation damage by banning the imposition of so-called smart meters in our homes and businesses.

These slower-acting effects are in addition to the more typical symptoms of the “lesser” but more conscious symptoms that “electro-hypersensitive” (EHS) persons experience: fatigue, headaches/migraine, nose bleeds, difficulty concentrating, dizziness/nausea/vertigo, visual and auditory distortion, anxiety, depression, memory loss, attention deficit, skin rash, hyperactivity, night sweats, and insomnia. Children are more susceptible to all these effects than adults. If readers (and doubters) look at just one of the many websites about this problem, http://www.powerwatch.org.uk/, they will find much information as well as links to a few thousand of these scientific studies.

One final usually unmentioned aspect I could mention is the role of the U.S. military. Gong back to the 1970s there are more than 8,300 relevant scientific studies just by the military, which hopes to (and by some accounts already has) weaponize this spectrum of radiation. I could also mention a 2013 letter issued by the Board of the American Academy of Environmental Medicine that referred to an Australian scientific study of 92 case series that “clearly demonstrates adverse health effects in the human population from smart meter emissions.”

It would be a progressive step if the Nevada City Council would agree to recognize the difficult truth of Wi-Fi radiation damage by banning the imposition of so-called smart meters in our homes and businesses.
