Microwave Radiation Should Be Regulated On A Precautionary Basis, Study Suggests

By Catherine J. Frompovich | The Activist Post

PubMed published the Abstract of a 2011 science paper titled “Long-term exposure to microwave radiation provokes cancer growth: evidences from radars and mobile communication systems” (Yakymenko I1, Sidorik E, Kyrylenko S, Chekhun V.),  which originally was published in Experimental Oncology, 2011 Jun;33(2):62-70.  It discusses the alarming epidemiological and experimental data on possible carcinogenic effects from long term exposures to low intensity microwave radiation.

The paper cites model studies in which rodents indicated a significant increase in carcinogenesis [cancer] after 17 to 24 months of microwave exposure.  Here’s a most significant statement taken directly from the Abstract:

It is now becoming increasingly evident that assessment of biological effects of non-ionizing radiation based on physical (thermal) approach used in recommendations of current regulatory bodies, including the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) Guidelines, requires urgent reevaluation.

Urgent reevaluation is needed and still ICNIRP refuses to acknowledge non-thermal radiation waves adverse health effects as of late 2016.  In testimony presented during my AMI Smart Meter refusal hearing before the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission’s Administrative Law Court in November 2016, PECO Energy Company “expert witnesses” testified they were citing ICNIRP as the expert they rely upon for EMF/RF/ELF radiation knowledge and industry information.  Yet, ICNIRP has been cited for conflicts of interest, which I introduced into the court record in the first Brief I filed with the court.

Furthermore, Yakymenko, et al. stated a clear and most important caveat, which utilities that retrofit AMI Smart Meters operating on microwaves and emitting all sorts of wavelengths and “dirty electricity”, aka sinusoidal waves that can radiate 6 to 8 feet away from the house wiring they travel on:

We also emphasize that the everyday exposure of both occupational and general public to MW [microwave] radiation should be regulated based on a precautionary principles which imply maximum restriction of excessive exposure.

Regarding excessive exposure(s), AMI Smart Meters provide 24/7/365 exposures that cannot be turned off like a microwave oven, cell phone or other electrical appliances.  The ZigBee radios in AMI SMs operate at gigahertz frequencies—similar to microwave ovens!

And yet, U.S. public utility commissions nationwide are not doing their due diligence in mandating consumer and environmental protections from utility companies and cell/mast/stingray towers that generate tremendous microwave exposures!  Why aren’t the PUCs doing their job to protect citizens?

Independent smart meter researcher Warren Woodward produced a video, “Nerve Disrupting Frequencies Radiating from ‘Smart’ Meters,” which documents in sound and visuals the RF wave forms coming off a Landis+Gyr Focus AXR smart meter.

I think everyone ought to watch the video below and then question what’s going on their homes, especially if their utility meters (electric, natural gas and water) have been retrofitted with AMI Smart Meters.  If you don’t know if you have an AMI Smart Meter, call your utility companies and ask them.  They have to tell you if they retrofitted one on to your home without your permission.

Here’s Warren’s exceptional and timely 16 minute video.
