Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity Update: Others Like Me

New utility meters, (sometimes called smart, digital, electronic, advanced, AMI, AMR, or AMR ERT meters), do not evoke immediate adverse symptoms in everyone, however, those who do feel adverse effects from electromagnetic fields report similar symptoms to what I had experienced after new utility meters were installed on our property.  

Many people who are adversely affected by the new utility meters had no idea one had been installed where they live.  And many did not even know what a so-called "smart" or wireless utility meter was.

New utility meters, unless they are 100% analog/100% mechanical, emit low level pulsed non-ionizing microwave radiation.  The American Cancer Society states that smart meters give off the same kinds of radio frequencies as cell phones and WiFi.  However, Daniel Hirsh, radiation expert, states that the radiation from one smart meter is more like that of 50 to 160 cell phones, when corrected for duty cycle, and whole body exposure.  

Live blood analysis shows damage to red blood cells within minutes after people are exposed to new utility meters.  Even those who feel nothing show damage to red blood cells.  So if you have a new utility meter and are not feeling any adverse symptoms, that does not mean that it is not affecting you.  It only means that you can not feel the affects.  

Even the American Cancer Society states that there are no long-term studies that prove that smart meters are safe for humans, while there are thousands of studies that prove adverse effects on humans.  Our dogs even started experiencing strange symptoms after new utility meters were installed here.  Their symptoms did lessened after protective measures were taken.

Many similarities exist among those of us who do feel adverse effects from the new utility meters.  And like my experience, after taking measures to reduce the electromagnetic fields (EMFs) in their environment, many have found their symptoms to lessen. 

How could this happen?  Isn't the FCC protecting us?  The short answer is, no.  The FCC is in service to the wireless industry and is not a health protection agency.  So when utility companies claim that their new meters are FCC approved, that means nothing about being safe for humans.

  • Headaches
  • Sharp pains
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle, physical weakness
  • Cardiac symptoms

In the following video a woman describes symptoms she and her daughter experienced within six months after moving into a new apartment that had a new utility meter.
  • Fatigue
  • Migraines
  • Electric shock
  • Skin cancer
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness
  • Ringing in ears
  • Joint pain
  • Organ inflammation

This woman describes her experience after smart meter installation.
  • Extreme nausea
  • Sleep problems
  • Shakiness
  • Surges of sharp pain
  • Heart palpitations
  • Waves of heat
  • Brain tremors

The following woman describes what she experienced after a new utility meter was installed.
  • Chronic (almost daily) migraines
  • Vertigo
  • Sleep disturbance
  • Vibration
  • Feeling like electricity coming through nervous system

This woman describes her immediate reaction to a smart meter installed on her home.
  • Severe insomnia
  • Swelling

The woman in this video describes her symptoms after a new utility meter was installed on her home.
  • Insomnia
  • Heart palpitations
  • Ears ringing

This woman describes how, not only were her bees and hens affected after smart meters were installed in her neighborhood, but she also started experiencing symptoms, even though she did not have a new meter on her home, only her neighbors did.
  • Sneezing attacks
  • Pressure in head
  • Torn and detached retina
  • Severe insomnia
  • Throbbing head
  • Humming, buzzing sound
  • Neuromuscular coordination problems

This man knew he was sensitive to electromagnetic fields since he was a child.  His story does not mention new utility meters, perhaps because he moved to a remote area in order to distance himself from electromagnetic fields, and new utility meters do not work in remote areas, as we are learning.  
  • Feeling ill
  • Fatigue
  • Eczema
  • Pain
  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Migraines

And this woman's story does not mention new utility meters either, though she discovered that she was sensitive to electromagnetic fields and has moved numerous times in order to avoid cell towers, antenna, WiFi, and other modern wireless technology.
  • Inability to speak
  • Inability to comprehend what others were saying to her
  • Inability to do simple mathematics
  • Inability to walk
  • Insomnia
  • Exhaustion
  • Feeling faint
  • Headaches

This video describes two women who have also fled civilization to escape modern wireless technology.
  • Pain from pressure on skull
  • Feeling like skull will explode
  • Skin burning
  • Memory loss
  • Pain in leg radiating up
  • Headaches
  • Muscle pains
"It would be unbelievable if external electromagnetic fields DIDN'T have an effect." ~ Prof. Andrew Marino, PhD - Neurology, Louisiana State University

There are more and more videos being made every day of testimonies from people around the world who have experienced or are experiencing severe adverse health effects from electromagnetic fields and the new "smart" utility meters.  

Some utility companies threaten to and have actually turned off utility service (electricity, natural gas, or water), if customers refuse a new wireless utility meter, even those who explain to the utility company that they suffer from electromagnetic hypersensitivity, as I did.  

And some utility companies are giving us a what they call a "choice," (though it's not a choice when the smart meters are forced upon us), to "opt-out" of the new utility meter program, but it is usually for a fee.

"Money to avoid harm is extortion."

The American Academy of Environmental Medicine has asked for "an immediate caution on smart meter installation due to potentially harmful RF (radiofrequency) exposure."  Don Maisch, PhD, from Australia, writes:
"We are now entering the era of 'The Internet of Things' (IoT) where all our appliances will be Wi-Fi enabled, endlessly communicating with each other and us through so-called smart devices.  This 'brave new world' dictates that human exposure to radiofrequency radiation must greatly increase in order to accommodate the technology.  This is a planned world being created by technocrats totally ignorant of the reality of our biology, an ignorance fostered by the existing thermal-effects-only standards/guidelines.  Now, more than ever, we need new, biologically relevant standards to meet the challenge of the future."
If you live in Michigan, please call you State Representative and ask them to support HB4916, Meter Choice, which will allow us to keep our 100% analog utility meters with a $5 per month charge only if we do not read our meter ourselves.  More information about that here.

If you don't live in Michigan, but are concerned about the new wireless utility meters, please speak out!  Talk to everyone you know, and some people you don't know, about your concerns and why you feel that way.  We can make a difference.
