Protect Our Children From Wireless Smart Meters

Smart Meters face radiation and fire hazard issues while failing to properly monitor electrical usage.

Smart Meters face radiation and fire hazard issues while failing to properly monitor electrical usage

Sedona AZ (May 20, 2013)The following is a Letter to the SedonaEye.com editor from Dr. Cheryl Harter, M.D. in the Village of Oak Creek, Sedona, Arizona:

I am a medical doctor and have studied the health effects of electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs) for several years. I have learned that children are the most vulnerable to detrimental effects of EMFs. The younger the child, the more vulnerable. Their brains are still growing and developing, so errors induced in the DNA of brain cells have far greater consequences than in brains already formed. Because of the thinner skull bones and greater water content of their brains, the same dose penetrates deeper into a child’s brain than into an adult brain.

Children are most vulnerable to EMFs at night when sleeping, the most important time for the brain to rest, de-stress, and grow. I believe the exponential growth in children with ADD, ADHD, and autism spectrum is at least in part due to the concurrent exponential growth in environmental EMFs.

In 1984 autism was 1 in 10,000. The Center for Disease Control recently reported 1 in 50. Dr Klinghardt of Seattle, who has successfully treated many autistic children, said the most important therapy is the elimination of EMFs from the child’s bedroom at night. He warns that smart meters must be removed because there is no way to turn them off at night. 

The Santa Cruz Public Health Dept. found that smart meters emit spiked pulsations 9,600 to 190,000 times each 24 hours, day and night, 24/7. This study also found that, “depending on the proximity to the meter, smart meters expose persons in the home to full body radiation exposures 50-450 times greater radiation the cell phones.”

We must protect our children from wireless smart meter neighborhood networks until they are proven safe by independent research paid for by the public, not by companies that stand to benefit from their installation.

    If the mayor and council would stop preening and demeaning maybe this would get on their agenda? Not holding my breath. Seen enough of this batch to know they are deep in others pockets

  2. Lin Ennis says:

    The responsibility of government is to protect citizens in ways they cannot do for themselves. I cannot personally stop speeders. I cannot pave my street. While I can opt out of having a smart meter on my own house, I cannot prevent having them 50 feet away on each side of me.

    The City of Sedona needs to step up and take leadership on this. Quit pussy-footing around, considering, watching to see what other cities do. Information on the deleterious effects of EMF radiation is clear and enormous. And you know it will be a whole lot easier to keep them out of town than to boot them out once they are here. Imagine: “Visit Sedona – a low EMF city.”

    “The cost of a thing is the amount of life we exchange for it.” Henry David Thoreau – So now it will be our utility companies competing with the phone companies (and every other vendor who has our personal information), for how much money they can rake in by selling our personal information. Oh, and also they can be IPOs and trade their stocks. OMG!
