A coalition of 190 scientists from 39 countries submitted a petition to the United Nations and the World Health Organization (WHO) requesting they adopt “more protective exposure guidelines for electromagnetic fields (EMF) and wireless technology. Given the long list of extremely detrimental effects of EMF on biological fields, such a request seems timid and limp. These devices damage the DNA in our cells, in all living cells. What are revised guidelines supposed to do about that? This doesn’t seem to be a guidelines type of problem.
Partial transcript of Dr. Blank’s presentation to the UN:
“I’m here with disturbing news about our favorite gadgets: cell phones, tablets, wi-fi, etc. Putting it bluntly, they are damaging the living cells in our bodies and killing many of us prematurely.
I’m Dr. Martin Blank, from the Department of Physiology and Cellular Biophysics at Columbia University.
It is distressing for me, and more than 160 colleagues, who today are petitioning the United Nations requesting that they address this problem.
We are scientists and engineers, and I am here to tell you – we have created something that is harming us, and it is getting out of control!
Before Edison’s lightbulb, there was very little electromagnetic radiation in our environment. The levels today are very many times higher than natural background levels and are growing rapidly because of all the new devices that emit this radiation.
An example that a lot of us have in our pockets right now is the cell phone. One study shows that as cell phone usage has spread widely, the incidence of fatal brain cancer in younger people has more than tripled.
We are putting cellular antennas on residential buildings, and on top of hospitals, where people are trying to get well.
Wireless utility meters, and cell towers, are blanketing our neighborhoods with radiation.
It’s particularly frightening that radiation from our telecommunication and powerline technology is damaging the DNA in our cells. It is clear to many biologists that this can account for the rising cancer rates.

tinnitus, insomnia, heart palpitations, hormonal disorders, blood sugar spikes and a host of other problems including cancer are being linked to smart meters. Our children, the elderly, and the chronically ill are the most susceptible groups.
Smart Meter Effects on Blood
Here is visual proof of the damage caused by smart meter technology. A dark field microscope was used to photograph living blood cells.
Human test subjects were placed one foot away from a smart meter and exposed for two minutes each. Test subject #3 had to be pulled away after only 45 seconds. She began to suffer a powerful headache and could not continue. As you can see, her blood cells were the most misshapen of the three test subjects after the exposure.
This will be a short paragraph-there aren’t any cost savings. The electric companies fail to mention that the meters are always on, drawing power and communicating with various devices in the home as well as with one another in the neighborhood. Most people report a doubling or more of their electric bills. These things are electricity pigs.
Smart Meter Fires and Explosions
Here is something else that we are not warned of, spontaneous combustion. Hundreds of smart meters in Stockton California exploded simultaneously when a truck struck a utility pole causing a power surge.
“The catastrophic failure of these PG&E “smart” meters — which are not approved by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) — not only damaged meter bases and other homeowner property, but left those 5,800 customers without power”. Power sockets inside the homes were fried! Residents lost TVs, computers, refrigerators, DVD players-all fried.
Smart Meter Lawsuits
There are lawsuits pending in many state courts over a wide variety of issues including
- wrongful death by fire
- privacy violations
- constitutional violations and security risks
- property rights
- health damage including cancer
- violation of Americans with Disabilities Act
- misrepresentation of radiation levels
Many of the suits are being won by the plaintiffs with the exception of lawsuits focused on over charging. A mass tort suit has been filed in California against electric companies So. Cal Edison., Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E), smart meter installer companies Corix and Wellington, and smart meter manufacturers Itron and Landis-Gyr. The law firm handling the tort has already won a case alleging wrongful death due to a smart meter fire.
A Project Manager/Engineer in Hawaii won a lawsuit against his employer after they fired him after he had warned them that the meters were not safe. And a class action suit has been brought against British Columbia Hydro and Power Authority in Canada for failure to provide customers with freedom of choice and violation of basic civil rights by using coercive tactics in order to implement their rigid smart meter installation program; a program that is intrusive and possibly life threatening.
“The “smart” meter deployments in your area are actually part of a corporate-government collusion to deploy a mass in-homedata-capturing (read surveillance) and control grid — the “internet of things”.
Here are three main takeaway points:
- As new appliances are being designed to collect detailed activity and report in real-time through the “smart” meter, it’s estimated that the combined data they collect on all of us will be worth more than the entire electricity industry.
- Industry wants to pocket trillions in this shift to an information economy, with you as the resource being packaged and sold — without your consent, of course.
- With industry selling the wireless convenience and glorious modernization of it all, these deployments are being pushed through under the guise of climate action. Go Green!
If this sounds like a stretch, examine the evidence for yourself.
The “smart” meter agenda, once fully spawned, would facilitate an unprecedented transfer of money, control, information and security from people to the corporate-government complex (CGC).
The reason why there has been so much industry and government propaganda around the”smart” meter issue is because the scope of this pillaging is, again, unprecedented. This is also why those attempting to change to a sane course of action from within the CGC have not yet been successful.
But as awareness spreads, scandals increase (like this one in California), and people take inspired action, I see that the “smart” meter agenda will fail and the pseudo-powers behind it will fall.”
Just Say No
The utility companies typically announce the roll out of their smart meters with small post cards or with announcements tucked in their bills. It is far easier to refuse or “opt out” before they take away your analog meter. Once they remove it they will tell you that they can’t give back your original meter because analog meters are not being manufactured anymore. Determined people have found analog meters for sale online and endured the extra expense of repurchasing a meter plus the cost of an electrician to install. Do not accept one of their “opt out” meters because these are only slightly less damaging.
Help to spread awareness of these devices and the damage that they cause to people, animals, and property. Forward this article or any other article you deem worthy to as many people as you can. File in small claims court when appropriate, join class action lawsuits in your state. This destructive technology must be stopped.
