How to Protect Yourself from Smart Meter Radiation
Smart meters have become increasingly prevalent in homes across the world. Their advertised intent is to provide an accurate and concise measurement of home energy usage. However, concerns plague the minds of researchers and everyday individuals over the safety and health effects of these measurement systems. Are smart meters safe? According to the FCC, the World Health Organization, and the FDA, the broadcasting frequencies emitted by smart meters are safe and do not pose a significant concern to human health.
Of course, the WHO also notes that the same radio frequencies used by smart meters may be a potential carcinogen. In other words, the WHO recognizes smart meters as safe, yet recognizes the potential to cause cancer. Does anyone understand the logic behind these two contradictory statements?
How Do Smart Meters Work?
Smart meters work with two types of radio frequencies: 900MHz and 2.4 GHz. Unlike a cell phone, laptop, or wireless network, you can’t turn off a smart meter.
