The American Academy of Environmental Medicine Calls for Immediate Caution Regarding Smart Meter Installation

Wichita, KS - The American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) recently released its position paper on electromagnetic field (EMF) and radiofrequency (RF) health effects calling for immediate caution regarding smart meter installations. Citing several peer-reviewed scientific studies, the AAEM concludes that “significant harmful biological effects occur from non-thermal RF exposure” showing causality. The AAEM also expresses concern regarding significant, but poorly understood quantum field effects of EMF and RF fields on human health.

“More independent research is needed to assess the safety of ‘Smart Meter’ technology,” said Dr. Amy Dean, board certified internist and President-Elect of the AAEM. “Patients are reporting to physicians the development of symptoms and adverse health effects after ‘Smart Meters’ are installed on their homes. Immediate action is necessary to protect the public’s health.”

 

Dr. William J. Rea, past president of AAEM says, “Technological advances must be assessed for harmful effects in order to protect society from the ravages of end-stage disease like cancer, heart disease, brain dysfunction, respiratory distress, and fibromyalgia. EMF and wireless technology are the latest innovations to challenge the physician whose goal is to help patients and prevent disease.” Rea, a thoracic and cardiovascular surgeon and environmental physician adds, “A more thorough review of technological options to achieve society’s worthwhile communications objectives must be conducted to protect human health.”

 

The AAEM calls for:

 

•   Immediate caution regarding “Smart Meter” installation due to potentially harmful RF exposure
•   Accommodation for health considerations regarding EMF and RF exposure, including exposure to wireless “Smart Meter” technology
•   Independent studies to further understand health effects from EMF and RF exposure

•   Use of safer technology, including for “Smart Meters”, such as hard-wiring, fiber optics or other non-harmful methods of data transmission
•   Independent studies to further understand the health effects from EMF and RF exposures
•   Recognition that electromagnetic hypersensitivity is a growing problem worldwide
•   Consideration and independent research regarding the quantum effects of EMF and RF on human health
•   Understanding and control of this electrical environmental bombardment for the protection of society.
