Local Citizens Group Joins Two EHS Lawsuits

smart metersSedona AZ (May 6, 2014)Sedona Smart Meter Awareness, a local residents’ group that has informed the Sedona community about effects of recently installed smart meters on health, privacy and safety, joined two legal cases on the issue of electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS) in two amicus briefs being prepared by New York attorney and activist against wireless radiation, Dafna Tachover.

Although the thermal effects of electromagnetic fields on the body are established, self-described sufferers of EHS report responding to non-ionizing electromagnetic fields at intensities well below limits permitted by international radiation safety standards.

Currently there are two cases in the United States submitted by Arthur Firstenberg, founder of the independent group Cellular Phone Task Force and author of Microwaving Our Planet: The Environmental Impact of the Wireless Revolution. Firstenberg has been working for decades to help people with EHS in the U.S. and worldwide.

The lower court ruled EHS is not a real condition but a psychological problem. The brief submitted will support the appeal of that decision. The second action is against the City of Santa Fe and AT&T on whether the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Constitution are preempted by the Telecommunications Act which states that health concerns should be ignored in a decision to erect an antenna.

EHS is characterized by a variety of symptoms including redness, tingling, and burning skin sensations, fatigue, tiredness, concentration difficulties, dizziness, nausea, heart palpitation, sleep and digestive disturbances.

Sedona area residents experiencing symptoms after Smart Meter installation may report them online using Sedona Smart Meter Awareness’ health survey at www.sedonasmartmeterawareness.com.

  4. On June 2nd, 2014, Dafna Tachover submitted an Amicus Brief to the Appellate Court of New Mexico. The Brief was submitted on behalf of 94 organizations from 22 (!) countries (including SEDONA SMART METER AWARENESS) on the issue of EHS in the case of Arthur Firstenberg – Firstenberg v. Monribot, in his claim against his neighbor for nuisance.

    We are very proud that so many organizations joined the brief and hope that we all do our best to ensure that the rights of people who became electro-sensitive from wireless technology would not continue and be crashed, at least not without a fight. GOOD LUCK!
