Are Smart Meters Smart? NO.

There's Nothing Smart about smart MetersReports are starting to flood in across the US and Canada about the health effects of so called “smart meters”.

Many people have taken measurements of the EMF levels and found that the radiation from the meters are penetrating through house walls, exposing residents to dangerous electromagnetic pollution. The biggest concern is when the meter is on the same wall as a bedroom or room where you spend a lot of time. Even more worrisome are townhouses and apartments that may have multiple meters mounted just outside their living areas.

Each meter transmits radiation at different strengths and different times periods. The amount of radiation is affected by distance, physical barriers between meter and collection point, number of meters using meter as a stepping stones as they pass information along to the collection point.

Smart meters have been measured and found to emit strong radiation, pulsing on and off almost continuously. Harmful effects may include, headaches, sleeping difficulties, heart problems, fatigue, etc. Long term health issues may be serious including cancer, immune system disorders, neurological problems and other serious illness. There is a huge amount of scientific research supporting this fact, including warnings by the World Health Organization.

We’ve had a number of calls from people who started experiencing serious dizziness and headaches after having meters installed. Several of those so affected hadn’t even realized the meters had been installed until they started investigating possible causes of their problems.

We are happy to report that by putting a Room Shield in the room nearest the meter and/or wearing a Shield themselves, the symptoms have been alleviated.

      Thank you, Estela, it’s always nice to get feedback on how we’re doing. Hopefully you won’t ever have an issue with smart meters in your area.

        “DO NOT REPLACE METER. We refuse the smart meter due to htaelh and privacy issues.” Also inside are several sheets explaining what makes smart meters so dangerous, and numbers and websites that will help people either avoid getting a smart meter, or what to do if they already have one. We handed out around 40, and probably already have that many more people around here refusing a meter (I think and hope I’m seriously underestimating that number, since we’ve had a letter to the editor and an article based on a previous visit to another local city).Keep up the good work, everyone. We are, slowly but surely, going to save as many people as possible from the smart meter debacle. They’re so bad that I think, eventually, every single one of them is going to have to be removed. And we’re going to speed up that process considerably!Posted onbyAccording to the incident report from the Santa Rosa Fire Department on April 7, firefighters found the electrical room at the Santa Rosa Mall “charged with smoke” and “upon investigation found 3 PG&E meters that had blown off the electrical panel causing damage to the interior wiring of the electrical panel. A fire was still smoldering..”The cause of the fire is listed as equipment failure and arcing coming from the switchgear area, and transformer vault.According to a, Santa Rosa Battalion Chief Jack Piccinini described the scene as a “meltdown”.EMF Safety Network has been informed that the electrical room was filled with Smart Meters, which have been reported to explode and catch fire in other areas, including Bakersfield, El Cerrito, Berkeley, Oregon, Virginia, Texas, Canada and New Zealand. Inspectors in Maine and Australia found thousands of homes were at risk for electrical hazards from Smart Meter installations.PG&E has admitted Smart Meters have interfered with GFCI and AFCI’s, which are electrical devices designed to protect against fires and shocks.“Smart Meters are dangerous and PG&E and the CPUC should act now to stop the installation” states Sandi Maurer, EMF Safety Network.More info:

          Thank you for helping to get the word out as well. Unfortunately many people don’t know they can refuse to have the meters installed, or that they can insist that they be removed. The more people like you raising awareness the better.

    Did you know you can refuse to have a Smart Meter installed??
    This link has steps you can take if you have had one installed already and how to REFUSE TO HAVE IT INSTALLED.
    Here’s another well-researched article on the subject, and it seems that rules vary from state to state, county to county, even city to city.

    Try banding together with your neighbors to fight installation.

    I’ve talked to a number of previously healthy people who got very sick shortly after meters were installed. Headaches, dizziness, muscle pain….It could be a coincidence, except that as soon as they put a Shield on they were back to normal.

    One woman had sent in her photo prior to ordering and our consultant said a Level 1 Shield would be fine for her. She sent a new photo about a month after getting the smart meters installed and she needed a Level 3 Shield.

    If you don’t think these meters are safe, you are correct!

    Hi there,
    It seems as though we both have a passion for the same thing.
    Your blog, “Are Smart Meters Smart? NO. | BioElectric Shield” and mine are
    very similar. Have you ever thought of authoring a guest write-up for a similar blog?
    It is sure to help gain exposure to your website (my
    site receives a lot of targeted traffic). If you happen to be interested, e-mail me.

    1. AnnaMariah Post author

      If you have another blog that’s about stress relief, we’d be happy to talk to you. The link you gave me goes to a page about tech toys…which is one of the things we are warning people about. So that wouldn’t be an appropriate guest blog.

    Hmm, it appears like your site didn’t update my first comment (it was extremely long) so I’ll just summarize what I
    had written and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I am also an aspiring writer but I am still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips for beginner blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate

      Sorry for delay have been extremely busy with holidays. Word press blogs are extremely to set up and start using. The main thing is just to write about what you know and keep it conversational. It doesn’t have to be scholarly, just act like you are talking to someone. Here’s a blog on blogging by a friend of mine.

      Happy Holidays and Happy blogging

    Would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m planning to start
    my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely
    P.S. Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    1. AnnaMariah Post author

      Our blog is WordPress, but it’s inside the Joomla Platform so that may account for the change in design from what’s most usual. Good luck with your blog.
