Prominent Public Health Physician Warns of Wireless Smart Meter Dangers, Stresses Need for Keeping Analog Meters
The Commonwealth Club will host a half-day program on “The Health Effects of Electromagnetic Fields” with leading international experts Thursday, November 18, 2010. It’s the largest-yet public forum in the U.S. on the hazards of wireless radiation, specifically including that of smart meters.
The President’s Cancer Panel last year called non-ionizing radiation (the type emitted by smart meters) a possible cause of cancer, urging more research, and in the meantime, urging people to limit their wireless exposure. This point and more in an op-ed piece that ran October 16 in the Portland Press Herald.
