Anti-smart meter resolve stiffens

The Board of the American Academy of Environmental Medicine has opposed the installation of smart meters.

Editor:

On Jan. 19, the Board of the American Academy of Environmental Medicine stated “(We) oppose the installation of smart meters in homes and schools based on a scientific assessment of the current medical literature. Chronic exposure to wireless frequency radiation is a preventable environmental hazard that is sufficiently well-documented to warrant immediate preventable public health action”  This is the first major North American medical group to take this strong stance. It probably won’t be the last.

While B.C. Hydro continues to install these meters in our communities, many of us have drawn a line in the sand and continue to resist having them installed on our homes. This new medical opinion only stiffens our resolve.

Any of your readers not wanting to be a lab rat for BC Hydro should not permit the installation of a smart meter on their home.
