In October last year, the American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) put out a press release on the “smart meter” issue.  Stating in part that:

“The AAEM has received a case series submitted by Dr. Federica Lamech, MBBS, Self–Reporting of Symptom Development from Exposure to Wireless Smart Meters’ Radiofrequency Fields in Victoria. AAEM supports this research. Itis a welldocumented 92 case series that is scientifically valid. It clearly demonstrates adverse health effects in the human population from smart meter emissions.”

The press release notes that the symptoms reported (including fatigue, headaches and heart palpitations)  are known to be produced by exposure to electromagnetic radiation (EMR), and that the “vast majority” of the people who became ill had not previously been adversely effected by EMR until after the installation of the “smart meter”, “and that Dr. Lamech concludes thatsmart meters ‘may have unique characteristics that lower people’s threshold for symptom development’.”

The press release concluded that:

“Based on the findings of this case series, AAEM calls for:
“Further research regarding smart meter health effects
“Accommodation for health considerations regarding smart meters.
“Avoidance of smart meter EMF/RF emissions based on health
considerations, including the option to maintain analog meters.
“Amoratorium on smart meters and implementation of safer technology
“Physicians and health care providers to consider the role of EMF and RF in
the disease process, diagnosis and treatment of patients.”
