PG&E reports it is about halfway through its rollout of wireless Smart Meters to monitor utility use. But critics of the meters are calling for a moratorium on the devices, for multiple reasons, including health concerns.
Sandi Maurer, founder of the EMF Safety Network, explains that the possible health problems resultant from exposure to wireless transmission derive from their effects on the sophisticated bio-electric processes within the human body.
These electrical considerations are heightened, Maurer notes, for individuals with medical devices, such as pacemakers, implanted in their bodies.
For people who are experiencing health problems after a new meter has been installed at their home, Maurer says there is recourse available.
The biggest number of complaints about the new Smart Meters have not been about health issues, however, but about billing problems.
In the article, Are Smart Meters Smart? the EMF Safety Network offers an extensive critique of the new metering technology.
