What if smart meters DO cause health issues? What then?

Once again the above topic is only one of many conditions that the general public are oblivious to as only a few will question the imposition of smart grid. It is for this reason that when health problems arise people don’t question the catalyst involved but rather head for the doctor who prescribes also without the environment and lifestyle of the patient.

It took a while to figure out that cigarettes aren’t good for us. Or that bacon and eggs might not be the wisest choice for breakfast on a regular basis. And earlier this year the Journal of the American Medical Association reported that using our trusty cell phones can trigger brain activity. What they didn’t say is whether or not we should be worried about it. Yet, anyway.

It makes me wonder if in another 10 or 20 years we’ll have some persuasive scientific evidence that suggests RF emissions from the smart meters we’re deploying around the world are in fact a health risk. What happens then? And is there something we should be doing differently now? In California, PG&E proposed an opt out plan for its customers who don’t want smart meters. But is that really the answer? By Jesse Berst

“Smart” appliances that talk to the grid are coming your way soon

Hence the Roombaization of the dumb dishwasher. If you turn on your oven to cook a meal when electricity rates are high, your stove will literally tell your refrigerator to delay defrosting or adjust its temperature until dinner is served. Likewise, the washing machine will send a signal wirelessly or through the home’s power lines to the dishwasher to switch on after the clothes are cleaned.

“When consumers buy a new fridge they’ll make a phone call or go online and register their new appliance with the grid,” says Tendril’s Tuck. “If they do that, the appliance will start to receive pricing information and download algorithms to modify its behavior.”

If you sign up for your utility’s demand-response program, the utility’s computers will adjust the energy consumption of your appliances and those in thousands of other homes — without affecting your lifestyle, Tendril and GE take pains to stress — to ensure peak demand is met.

We must choose our conveniences and question their impact on the energy field of the body. Our emotional wellbeing might also be impacted by the EMF / RF emissions around us. When it comes to convenience via technology some components of it might come with a price that we might not be so willing to pay if we were better informed. Compromising the immune system is generally where it begins and with the stressful survival lifestyle common in our society this becomes a double whammy.

So is the answer continued enhancement of one’s immune support or is it simply about opting out when you can?

I would love to hear your feedback.
