·       Wireless smart meters in meshed-grid networks have never been tested and proven to be safe in an actual, real-life, densely populated residential community in any country of the world;

·       The chronic, low-level non-thermal or biological effects of wireless pulsed microwave radiation has never been proven – in independent, science-based studies - to be safe to humans and other life forms in any country in the world;

·       No scientist on Earth yet knows what - if any – level of chronic, low-level, non-thermal, pulsed microwave radiation is safe for humans and other life forms;

·       Electric utilities are not conducting base-line studies to first determine what ambient levels of EMR already exist in communities before they install meshed-grid networks – meaning they have no concern for how much EMR might already be burdening a community. Yet, independent, world-class scientists have said that ambient levels of EMR on Planet Earth have increased 100-200-million times in the past century, and more than 1,000,000 times in just the past decade, due to the ongoing widespread proliferation of wireless technology such as: Wi-Fi routers, cell phones, cell phone towers, smart phones, cordless phones, laptop and tablet computers, baby monitors, AM and FM radio, satellite TV and radio, GPS satellites, military and police radars, XBox, PlayStation and Nintendo Wii U video games, Wi-Fi zones (restaurants, towns, cities, buses, trains, airplanes), Wi-Max zones, TETRA radio, to name just a few.

·       In each community, whatever incalculable amount of EMR is produced from a meshed-grid network, that amount must then be added to the ambient level of toxic radiation already in the community from the plethora of other wireless devices, examples of which are mentioned above.

·       Inside every smart meter are two (2) radio transmitter, receiver and antenna circuits: one being the LAN (Local Area Network), which operates on 900 MHz and radiates for a distance of 3 Km; the other being the "ZigBee," which operates on 2.4 GHz - the same frequency on which microwave ovens operate! 

·       The ZigBee's sole function is to control what utilities call the “HAN” (Home Area Network) which they envisage will comprise up to 15-or-so 'smart' appliances per home.

·       Each 'Smart' appliance has its own pulsed microwave radio transmitter, receiver and antenna circuit that also operates on the microwave oven frequency of 2.4 GHz! (This means that inside each home will be 15-or-so transmitters, all of which will irradiating the occupants 24/7/365 – in perpetuity - with pulsed microwave radiation on the microwave oven frequency of 2.4GHz!) 

·       Electric utilities envisage meshed-grid networked communities ranging in size from 500 to 5,000 homes.

·       Using the above figures then, even in the smallest meshed-grid network community of just 500 homes, the residents will suddenly find themselves subjected to microwave radiation from:

v  500 LAN transmitters - all pulsing virtually non-stop 24/7/365 in perpetuity and radiating for 3 Km (i.e., every home’s LAN transmitter will radiate and be radiated by every other home’s LAN in the entire community)! 

v  500 Zigbee transmitters (one inside each Smart Meter) each radiating for a radius of 250 feet and emitting microwave pulses periodically throughout the day 24/7/365 in perpetuity - on the microwave oven frequency of 2.4 GHz!

v  7,500 (appliance) ZigBee-compatible transmitter, receiver and antenna circuits (i.e., 500 homes each with 15 smart appliances) - all emitting pulsed microwave radiation periodically throughout the day 24/7/365 in perpetuity - on the microwave oven frequency of 2.4 GHz!

v  Every meshed-grid network must have a Collector Meter, whose job it is to relay all traffic - in both directions - originated by the utility and, in this case, 500 homes. Collector's can have either three (3) or eight (8) microwave transmitter, receiver and antennae circuits depending on the utility’s choice of meters. Regardless of whichever meter is used, it will have a WWAN (Wireless Wide Area Network) transmitter, receiver and antenna circuit which operates a dual-band duplex radio circuit the frequencies of which are unique to the Collector and the utility to facilitate the relay – in both directions - of all communications between the utility and all home LANs.

v  Given the above, it can be seen that even the smallest community of just 500 homes will have a total of 8,503 or 8,508 (depending on the choice of Collector meter employed) transmitter, receiver and antenna circuits, of which a staggering 8,001 will emit pulsed, low-level, non-thermal microwave radiation on the microwave oven frequency of 2.4 GHz!

v  Customers need to note that, unlike many of the other wireless devices in our environments today, smart meter transmitters cannot be turned off or unplugged by the customer – they’ll remain active, emitting toxic pulsed microwave radiation 24/7/365 in perpetuity!

v  Customers also need to note that smart meters offer not one single meaningful advantage for the average home owner – not one! On the contrary, the electric utility is about to invade the privacy of your home, to the extent they will now know heretofore personal and private details about the human activity going on in your home – such as: what electric/electronic devices are turned on, for how long they are on, and when they are turned off, what channel of TV you’re watching, etc. None of this is at all necessary and should not be acceptable in a democratic society.

v  Home owners also need to know that as people become better educated about the dangers of wireless technology, communities and homes having smart meters installed will see their property resale values drop precipitously!

v  Home owners should also note that insurance companies will not insure companies against health-related lawsuits attributed to the effects of chronic, low-level, non thermal effects of microwave / radio frequency radiation.

v  And lastly, jurisdictions all over the world continue to report inexplicable fires allegedly caused by newly-installed smart meters, yet not once has any electric utility, anywhere, admitted culpability or accepted financial responsibility for damages done to electric appliances that sustained electrical damages within the home, or to homes that literally burnt to the ground shortly after smart meters were installed.

·       Once a person understands the basics of how meshed-grid networks work and realizes the staggering amount of additional toxic radiation they’ll emit, they will then understand why electric utilities everywhere are going to such pains to try to keep them, the public, ignorant. But once we allow a Smart Meter to be attached to our homes, it will be too late! Because electric utilities are our only supplier of electricity, it will be virtually impossible for homeowners to have Smart Meters removed!

·       But there's more. In addition to the enormous, if not incalculable, amount of EMR that will result from the above, for a microwave radio-based system to function in a meshed-grid network (microwave emissions being line-of-sight), literally dozens to conceivably a hundred or more relays will be required: from house LAN - to house LAN - to house LAN - to house LAN ... and so on - on each and every transmission, in both directions - before any transmission can successfully reach its destination! Nowhere on any electric utility website is this enormous, inescapable amount of “additional or secondary” EMR mentioned.

·       And still more. It is doubtful that electric utilities understand - or care - about all the "dirty" electricity” that will piggy-back along with any meshed-grid network. All one has to do is Google: "Dirty Electricity" to understand what this means. This is a far more serious problem than most people – and probably electric utilities themselves - realize, but it is one that can have very serious consequences for all of us human-and-other-living “guinea pigs” who are compelled to live in meshed-grid networked communities.  

·       And finally, electric utilities make no mention of what are called Reflection "hot spots" which can and do occur in various rooms of most if not all homes caused by the EMR reflecting off surfaces such as stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, tiled floors, etc. This too scientists say is another significant concern for the public for it creates areas within a home which are even more dangerous than the others. This too adds significantly to the electro-pollution that will result in meshed-grid network communities.


In conclusion, unless governments make electric utilities stop this wireless madness, there can be little doubt that history will record those complicit governments as having committed the most inconceivably cruel, evil, criminal technological experiment on an innocent, ignorant, trusting and helpless public in human history. The shame of it is, there are perfectly safe, proven technologies available today that are far faster, far more secure and emit no radiation whatsoever, i.e., fiber optic and coaxial cable being but two examples.

Metal implants causing suffering?

As a small group of people who have received metal implants we have gathered mounting evidence that people with metal implants are more prone to suffering from Electromagnetic radiation as a result of antenna effects from the implants. We would like to hear from anyone suffering from the effects of electromagnetic radiation who has received a metal implant, particularly Metal hips. The information received will be treated in the strictest confidence and will be used to present evidence to the British Hip Society ( and possibly other patient groups if requested). 

Please note this dos not apply to those with metal dental fillings.
