Please see the letter copied below1 for just some of the reasons the roll out of Smart Meters should be stopped.

The advice from the UK Health Protection agency is seriously flawed as is the advice from INCIRP as they are heavily influenced by industry.

Governments are following the same path as was followed by the tobacco industry, although the telecommunications industry is far more powerful.

In addition Smart Meters do not reduce power consumption and they use power to transmit the signals.

As they are electronics and use wireless communications it will be possible for them to be hacked into and potential burglars will be able to find out who is on holiday or not at home. This information will also be available to employees of the utility companies, and their associates.

I hope that you will do something to halt the roll out. If you don’t then the health of many people will worsen and the levels of cancer in future years will increase.

One of my children is electrosensitive and we have had to remove her from the local authority school as she suffered from severe headaches only when exposed to the WiFi radiation being transmitted from the laptops and wireless routers. There are many studies showing the damage caused by this technology and even the WHO classified this technology as a class 2B carcinogen—and yet governments are increasing the exposure.

Some of the studies are listed here

No one be installing a ‘Smart’ Meter on any of my properties.
