Most products you buy have visible labels to warn of any dangers. But this is not the case with wireless devices, which can cause significant harm. Their warning labels are weak or non-existent, or simply assert that the device is safe.

All wireless devices – including wireless antennas (cell phone towers), smartphones, Wi-Fi modems, bluetooth devices, wireless security cameras, baby monitors, and Smart Meters – emit non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation (EMR) which creates an electromagnetic field (EMF) around the device.

For many years, engineers claimed that the only harm that wireless devices could cause was from the heating of human tissue (thermal effect) produced by an exposure to a high level of radio frequency (RF) radiation. The radiation itself, they believed, was harmless.

But scientists around the world, including those within our own National Institutes of Health, have now proven that exposure to wireless radiation causes biological harm at levels below thermal thresholds.

Hundreds of EMF scientists from 43 countries around the world have been warning about these biological harms. In 2015, they signed on to an appeal to the United Nations and the WHO which they continue to advocate and which states:

“Numerous recent scientific publications have shown that EMF affects living organisms at levels well below most international and national guidelines. Effects include increased cancer risk, cellular stress, increase in harmful free radicals, genetic damages, structural and functional changes of the reproductive system, learning and memory deficits, neurological disorders, and negative impacts on general well-being in humans.”

Children suffer the most from exposure to RF radiation because of their rapidly developing bodies, thinner skulls, and immature nervous systems. Research shows this exposure can cause headaches, persistent nosebleeds, fatigue, nausea, dizziness, sleep disruption, ADHD symptoms, weakened immune system and abnormal brain development in the short term.

The FCC, the FDA, and state government bureaucracies are charged with ensuring wireless devices are safe. But government regulators are not regulating these dangers.

A hearing took place on November 20 where Dominion Energy sought approval to raise the rates of any residential customer who refuses installation of a Smart Meter.
