Letter to BC Hydro requesting removal of wireless smart meters
On December 18th 2011 we had 8 smartmeters installed just under the room I have been using to do my biodynamic craniosacral therapy sessions in. It is really disappointing to have these imposed on us especially after we specifically requested that they at least cable them. As my readers know I have issues with electro hypersensitivity which has slowly been improving with the GAPS diet and eating heaps of probiotics, having 8 extra wireless devices installed just under my room is not really a helpful situation at all.
These devices interfere with cellular communication is very unhelpful, both to my health and in practicing my work, which is resonating on very specific levels with my clients. The other day when I was down in the room with the smartmeters taking the above photo my heart was beating wildly and I immediately had diarreah that night, which was chronic all night until I ate yogurt in the morning. I could go on and on here, but I better not. I am posting the following letter we wrote to BC Hydro and we’ll post their response as soon as we get it:
Dear BC Hydro,
We would like to formally request that you remove all the wireless smart meters from our residence. In the time since the new meters were installed two months ago, our health has steadily deteriorated. I have been experiencing flu-like symptoms for over a month now, whereas I didn’t have a cold or flu for two years prior to this. I have also been having difficulty sleeping and concentrating. My wife has experienced increased migraines, dizziness and fatigue.
Many scientists and public officials from around the world have already expressed valid concerns as to the long term safety of wireless smart meters for humans. Recently the American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) adopted a resolution calling for a halt to wireless smart meters.
Since the issue with these new meters is the type of wireless signal it emits, I suggest that you create a cabled connection with whatever terminal receives information from the meters instead. Other power companies have been able to send new demographic information from smart meters securely over power lines, so the wireless component of the meter is unnecessary.
It’s irresponsible of BC Hydro to use people as guinea pigs for new, untested and potentially dangerous technology. This is especially flagrant in light of the fact that we already requested in writing that you NOT install the wireless smart meters well in advance of the target installation date.
Please feel free to use any part of this letter when writing to BC Hydro for yourselves. Also I’d love to see other folks letters to BC Hydro so please link your letters or add them into the comments below.
