Stop Smart Meters Australia has reported that an American scientist has called for new legislation to protect the public from EMR created by “smart meters”..
The site reports:
“As American FCC (Federal Communications Commission) guidelines for human exposure to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields are based on the same outdated premises as the Australian standard, this document could be used as a basis to write to Australian legislators. The FCC’s regulations, similar to Australian regulations, “protect only against gross overheating and do not protect from biological harm caused by low (‘non-thermal’) levels of microwaves”.
New Zealand’s national standard for radiofrequency radiation produced by “smart meters” and other devices such as cell phones (NS 2772.1:1999) is similarly designed to protect against thermal injury only, not other potential adverse effects such as DNA damage and cancer.

“Dr Conrad also discusses how the dangers associated with creating perpetually hackable wireless mesh networks which provide a tapping device on every home, can be used as a potential weapon of mass debilitation and contain a power cut-off switch to every home.” SOURCE: http://stopsmartmeters.com.au/2014/06/01/new-legislation-urgently-needed-for-safety-of-new-metering-systems/
