If you’ve been suffering from health symptoms since you had a smart meter attached to your home and others are telling you it’s just your imagination—take heart: there is clear evidence stating that smart meter dangers are real.
Evidence of Smart Meter Dangers
The conclusions of independent research are that safety standards of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) are woefully insufficient for guarding people against smart meter radiation levels—and that some installations of smart meters don’t even comply with those inadequate standards.
To begin with, FCC standards, set back in 1996, were based on studies with models of healthy 6’2”, 220 lbs men exposed for short periods of time to wireless radiation.
This, of course, is not even relevant in today’s world, in which women, children and people in poor health are continuously exposed to the radiation from many different sources.
But perhaps most importantly, the FCC only tested for thermal damage—and the health risks independent researchers are finding today are from non-thermal radiation. Also, other sources of radiation (such as Wi-Fi, cell phones, and other wireless devices, all present in today’s homes) were not present in the testing sessions with radiation.
For all these reasons, the report strongly cautions that smart meters are not safe.

American Academy of Environmental Medicine Calls Installation of Smart Meters Irresponsible
Calling for immediate caution regarding smart meter radiation health risks, a letter published by the American Academy of Environmental Medicine cites a number of peer-reviewed, double-blind, placebo-controlled research in humans, and concludes that…
“…significant harmful biological effects occur from non-thermal RF exposure, showing causality.”
It further states that the installation is irresponsible and calls not only for a moratorium on installation, but also immediate relief to those requesting it, including the return of analog meters.
Wireless Radiation Correlated with Diseases
An article in the scientific journal Pathophysiology in 2007 by C. Sage and D. Carpenter outlines in detail the reasons for concern about wireless radiation. They cite studies linking non-thermal radiation to:
- Brain tumors
- Breast Cancer
- Alzheimer’s and ALS
- DNA damage
- Breakage of blood-brain barrier
- Altered immune function
They conclude that:
“The rapidly expanding development of new wireless technologies and the long latency for the development of such serious diseases as brain cancers means that failure to take immediate action to reduce risks may result in an epidemic of potentially fatal diseases in the future.”
Early Smart Meter Health Symptoms
Common symptoms after the installation of a smart meter are:
- concentration & memory problems
- dizziness, tinnitus
- heart palpitations
- sleep disruptions
- depression, anxiety
- behavioral problems in children
Certain groups of people are especially vulnerable to smart meter radiation dangers: children (who absorb radiation at a greater rate than adults), people with electromagnetic sensitivity, people wearing pacemakers, and chronically or acutely ill people whose immune systems are compromised.
Protection against Smart Meters Dangers
There are no warnings about health dangers that come with the installation of a smart meter. In some areas, it’s now possible to opt out—usually for a monthly fee. But you may not wish to pay this fee. Or you may be faced with living near a whole bank of smart meters on your building or next door, so opting out won’t do you much good.
What makes sense is to simply get EMF protection. Check out EarthCalm’s solution for protecting yourself against smart meter dangers.
