Smart Meters II - But What Does She Know?

HealthGROSSLY if not negligently outdated FCC regulations continue to be touted as valid safety standards from both the public and the private sectors.

Anybody ever wondered what CUMMULATIVE effect that all these environmental toxins are having on our health? We have set LEGAL limits for each toxin that is in the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat. What might the cumulative toll be of all these legal toxins? You see the toxicity levels are readily measurable in our blood. What are our politicians and these multibillion dollar government agencies doing to protect us?

Now let’s surround ourselves with low level radiation from TV’s, microwaves, cell phones, computers and now smart meters and coming very soon smart appliances. We will use safety guidelines established by the FCC that by any measure are outdated.

When you answer these questions you will realize that the EPA, FDA and FCC regulations are primarily about political illusion. How do we convince the public that we (your elected officials) are protecting you, when in reality what we are really protecting is a corporate cash flow that keeps us in office until we retire. America is surrounded by this illusion that BIG is the answer, when Big is actually the problem especially Big Money.

Big Business, it owns Big Media whose “news anchors” read heavily censored scripts designed to manage your perceptions. Big Government does the bidding of Big Business under the guise of protecting your health and security.

Smart meters and are just another example of the duping of America. Look around you, we are surrounded by deceit. Start checking the facts, apply some logic and common sense to a world that is being brought to you by Corporate America

RE: Wireless vs. Wired in Classrooms
DATE: February 8, 2013

I am a pediatric neurologist and neuroscientist on the faculty of Harvard Medical School and on staff at the Massachusetts General Hospital. I am Board Certified in Neurology with Special Competency in Child Neurology, and Subspecialty Certification in Neurodevelopmental Disorders.

I have an extensive history of research and clinical practice in neurodevelopmental disorders, particularly autism spectrum disorders. I have published papers in brain imaging research, in physiological abnormalities in autism spectrum disorders, and in environmental influences on ndurodevelopmental disorders such as autism and on brain development and function.

I recently accepted an invitation to review literature pertinent to a potential link between Autism Spectrum Disorders and Electromagnetic Frequencies (EMF) and Radiofrequency Radiation (RFR). I set out to write a paper of modest length, but found much more literature than I had anticipated to review. I ended up producing a 60 page single spaced paper with over 550 citations. It is available at http://www.bioinitiative.org/report/wp-content/uploads/pdfs/sec20_2012_Findings_in_Autism.pdf.

In fact, there are thousands of papers that have accumulated over decades – and are now accumulating at an accelerating pace, as our ability to measure impacts become more sensitive – that document adverse health and neurological impacts of EMF/RFR. Children are more vulnerable than adults, and children with chronic illnesses and/or neurodevelopmental disabilities are even more vulnerable. Elderly or chronically ill adults are more vulnerable than healthy adults.

Current technologies were designed and promulgated without taking account of biological impacts other than thermal impacts. We now know that there are a large array of impacts that have nothing to do with the heating of tissue. The claim from wifi proponents that the only concern is thermal impacts is now definitively outdated scientifically.

EMF/RFR from wifi and cell towers can exert a disorganizing effect on the ability to learn and remember, and can also be destabilizing to immune and metabolic function. This will make it harder for some children to learn, particularly those who are already having problems in the first place.

Powerful industrial entities have a vested interest in leading the public to believe that EMF/RFR, which we cannot see, taste or touch, is harmless, but this is not true. Please do the right and precautionary thing for our children

I urge you to step back from your intention to go wifi in the LAUSD, and instead opt for wired technologies, particularly for those subpopulations that are most sensitive. It will be easier for you to make a healthier decision now than to undo a misguided decision later.

Thank you.

    Smart Meter Shielding Tips
    Authored by: Vidda on Monday, February 11 2013 @ 11:51 PM GMT+4
    This dates back to Sept 2011:

    3. Install an RF shield
    The golden rule with shielding is to have an RF meter on hand and take readings before and after shielding to ensure its effectiveness.
    There are two ways you can shield; you can either use an absorbent shield or a reflector shield. The absorbent shield absorbs RF radiation and the reflector shield deflects the RF radiation away from your home. Whichever you choose, you will need to install it between your home and the meter.
    If the meter is on the outer wall, you can install the shield inside your home, directly behind the meter. But remember a reflector shield will reflect RF radiation both ways. So if you have devices like WiFi and cordless phones in your home which are situated near the reflector shield you could end up increasing your EMF exposure.
    The best solution is probably to use a reflector shield with shielding fabric directly behind the meter. And then an absorber shield, microwave absorber sheet for instance, on top of that. This way the RF radiation that comes from the meter is reflected out and EMF radiation from inside of your home is absorbed and not reflected back into your home.

    A tinfoil hat works well, too.

    Why yes SJD, it is the new Amerika that most of the Socialists on here voted for. You must know all about Agenda 21 by now.

    It's almost March 2013 and Vermont Yankee is still operating to provide Vermont with affordable and reliable power, despite Shumlinism.

    It's so affordable that no Vermont utility will buy it.
    BTW, GMP is owned indirectly by the Province of Quebec. Is that Socialism?
