Comments; Reports have been coming out for years of the damage being done to biological systems from EMF.  Unfortunately, in many cases, the “fox is in charge of the hen house” with regulation and research ostensibly being done by those who stand to benefit and profit the most from the technology.  We need honest, reliable, impartial information released as widely as possible so we can make intelligent choices as a society.  Smart meters are another form of low frequency radiation that could be replaced with data transmission modulated back up the very wires that feed electricity to the meter with much less danger to biological systems within the current areas affected by the smart meter EMF fields.

We know that there is a massive literature, providing a high level of scientific certainty, for each

of eight pathophysiological effects caused by non-thermal microwave frequency EMF exposures.

This is shown in from 12 to 35 reviews on each specific effect, with each review listed in Chapter

1, providing a substantial body of evidence on the existence of each effect. Such EMFs:


  1. Attack our nervous systems including our brains leading to widespread

neurological/neuropsychiatric effects and possibly many other effects.  This nervous

system attack is of great concern.

  1. Attack our endocrine (that is hormonal) systems. In this context, the main things that

make us functionally different from single celled creatures are our nervous system and

our endocrine systems – even a simple planaria worm needs both of these.  Thus the

consequences of the disruption of these two regulatory systems is immense, such that it is

a travesty to ignore these findings.

  1. Produce oxidative stress and free radical damage, which have central roles in essentially

all chronic diseases.

  1. Attack the DNA of our cells, producing single strand and double strand breaks in cellular

DNA and oxidized bases in our cellular DNA.  These in turn produce cancer and also

mutations in germ line cells which produce mutations in future generations.

  1. Produce elevated levels of apoptosis (programmed cell death), events especially

important in causing both neurodegenerative diseases and infertility.

  1. Lower male and female fertility, lower sex hormones, lower libido and increased levels

of spontaneous abortion and, as already stated, attack the DNA in sperm cells.

  1. Produce excessive intracellular calcium [Ca2+]i and excessive calcium signaling.
  2. Attack the cells of our bodies to cause cancer. Such attacks are thought to act via 15

different mechanisms during cancer causation.


There is also a substantial literature showing that EMFs also cause other effects including life

threatening cardiac effects (Chapter 3).  In addition substantial evidence suggests EMF causation

of very early onset dementias, including Alzheimer’s, digital and other types of dementias

(Chapter 3); and there is evidence that EMF exposures in utero and shortly after birth can cause

ADHD and autism (Chapter 5).


Each of these effects is produced via the main mechanism of action of microwave/lower

frequency EMFs, activation of voltage-gated calcium channels (VGCCs) (Chapter 2).  Each of

them is produced via what are called downstream effects of VGCC activation.  It follows from

this that we have a good understanding not only that these effects occur, but also how they can

occur.  The extraordinary sensitivity of the VGCC voltage sensor to the forces of the EMFs tells

us that the current safety guidelines allow us to be exposed to EMF levels that are something like
