Energy and Climate Change CommitteeWritten evidence submitted by Anne Gill (SMR36)

I am very concerned about the introduction of smart meters as I suffer from low immunity due to ME/CFS and I am *very* sensitive to EMF emissions eg from wifi. Whenever I am near EMFs I get frequent headaches and feel much more fatigued and literally cannot think straight. It also affects my sleep. So I am very worried that people like will experience an even further deterioration in our health. Please don’t push these meters onto people—give consumers a choice, thanks!

Here is some evidence suggesting a link between EMFs and various health problems:

Smart Meters Linked to Cancer.

Utilities & Health Departments based previous safety claims on World Health Organization (WHO).

But June 1 2011, WHO says Wireless Smart Meter radiation is linked to CANCER (possible human carcinogen—same as Lead, DDT, etc), and that means it also damages bodies & brains (including children’s) in many ways, other than cancer.
