How Safe Are Smart Meters For Your Health?
WHAT IS A SMART METER?
A smart meter is the next generation of a gas and electricity meter.
They are being installed in homes across Great Britain at no extra cost, to replace the traditional meters including prepay key meters, which most of us currently have tucked away under the stairs, or outside our homes.
Theoretically, smart meters measure how much gas and electricity you’re using, as well as what it’s costing you, and display this on a handy in-home display. The smart meter, also called an Advanced Meter Installation (AMI), is a two-way device used by utility companies to measure energy usage in your home.
HOW DO THEY WORK?
The advantage of a smart meter is you can wave goodbye to estimated billing. The smart meter shows a digital meter reading and uses a secure smart data network (managed by the DCC) to automatically and wirelessly send the readings to your energy supplier at least once a month, so you will receive accurate, not estimated bills.
Smart meters also come with an in-home display screen that shows you exactly how much energy you’re using in pounds and pence, in near real-time.
WHAT THE UTILITY COMPANIES SAY.
If you ask your utility company if a smart meter impacts your health, you’ll likely be told there is no health risk. They will be biased and will hopefully convince the unaware consumer that there are no dangers. However medical evidence has proven there are dangers.
WHAT THE EXPERTS SAY.
According to the BioInitiative Working Group, more than 6,000 studies show the correlation of electromagnetic energy with harmful effects, chronic conditions, and disease.
There is also evidence that electropollution triggers an immune system response. That’s because the body thinks the electrical fields are foreign invaders similar to bacteria and viruses.

Dr. Myers has been quoted as saying: “I’ve seen with thousands of patients in my functional medicine clinic, that chronic inflammation leads to fatigue, cognitive problems, brain fog, irritability, anxiety, and memory loss. It is the root cause of autoimmune disease. Chronic electrical exposure triggers symptoms that mirror those experienced in dozens of autoimmune diseases”.
According to David O. Carpenter, MD, radiofrequency exposure at elevated levels for a long period increases the risk of cancer, damages the nervous system, and causes sensitivity. It also has adverse health effects on the reproductive system and other organ systems. In addition, it elevates the levels of peroxynitrite (a toxin made by your body), which is linked with over 60 chronic diseases.
According to the World Health Organization, tissue heating is the principal mechanism of interaction between radiofrequency energy and the human body. Sam Milham, MD has spent nearly thirty years researching the impact of electric and magnetic fields (EMFs). He links dirty electricity to cancer, heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and suicide. He also connects it with neurological disorders such as multiple sclerosis and Lou Gehrig’s disease.
RF radiation was classified in 2011 by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), as “possibly carcinogenic (cancer-causing) to humans.” Furthermore, no data shows RF radiation is safe. No one has conducted health studies on humans living in homes with smart meters. The World Health Organization is planning a formal assessment of the health effects of RF exposure, however, this report is not yet available.
“People with smart meters in their homes have reported a sudden increase in dizziness, ear pain, memory problems, heart palpitations, anxiety, and sleep problems”.
Whether you owe money to a creditor or a utility company they will not stop until you contact them. They have been known to text and phone multiple times in a day for you to react. It is always best to communicate with them so that they can arrange something with you. My interaction was with Utility Companies and they insisted on meter readings, before Covid, and even During Covid they would come and read my meter but now they are singing a different tune. Because of the height of where my meter is located, it is impossible to read, yet I do not want a smart meter because of the health implications.
Whenever I communicate I always forward articles I have written, this gives me more authority on what I am talking about.

NOTES FROM THE EDITOR.
I had a text message come through on my phone from ‘British Gas despite me telling them that I do not permit them to communicate with me this way and only by email. So they have given my number out without my permission to third-party engineers, which is a breach of GDPR for starters.
This has gone on deaf ears. Needless to say, they have booked me in for a smart meter even though I have told them I do not want one.
Now both my daughter and I have autoimmune disorders (cerebellar atrophy and multiple sclerosis), so if any utility company insists on the installation of these meters I think I have enough evidence, that should either my daughter or I relapse, we would be able to take legal action against the energy providers.
I was told in a conversation I had with ‘British Gas that I use more gas than the average household. They even asked me to add a backlink for them on this site on the useful links page, yet they never offered to pay for it. (It is disgraceful that they can money grab, but won’t compensate for the traffic I send them). The link is useful for my readers and I am not doing British Gas any favors and will be looking for compensation.
I am not arguing if I use more gas or not, although I have a brand new boiler and I have to have my home heated because of black mold that grows on our walls.
I have to safeguard both my daughters and my health because we have black mold.
Our landlord is aware of the situation and has simply said to wash it down with bleach and soapy water. This does not eradicate the problem and the health of my daughter and my own is paramount and I will fight to the end anyone that tries to reduce our quality of life.
They will be made accountable, this includes:
- Emotional Distress
- Autoimmune Relapses
Preventing mold through heating. It makes sense that people want to save on heating costs but one of the best mold prevention techniques is keeping your heating on. If you seriously want to avoid mold in your home then avoid rooms cooling completely.
Remember the Governments and the Large Corporations work hand in hand. If you read on the government’s website that smart meters are safe, they will never tell the truth.
Why is our cost of living increased?
I will tell you why it has to do with deficit spending and the debt ceiling. The Government has overspent and in the case of the UK, they owe money to the EU. The Brexit Divorce Bill in July 2021, was estimated at £40.8bn but Downing Street insisted the figure was between £35bn and £39bn. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/51110096 We now have a crisis on our hands. The Government needs to find the money to pay the EU. Goods and services are now subject to tariffs, increasing the cost of raw materials into Britain and finished products out.
Therefore who is paying for this if not the British Public?
If people’s mental health is affected due to price hikes and people are forced to endure corporate bullying and intimidation to install smart meters which leads to illness then the corporations need to be made accountable. If people are struggling to pay their finances before the price hikes how are they supposed to pay after bills are increased exponentially?
“Pushing vulnerable people into a corner can easily send them over the edge”.
Furthermore, if corporations interfere in with people’s quality of life and make them ill they should pay damages. Black mold could lead to death. https://www.ehagroup.com/mold-iaq-services/toxic-mold/ So if I am to not use my gas and the black mold makes us ill then ‘British Gas’ should be made to pay for damages.
