Lloyds of London refuses cover for “Electromagnetic Fields”
Rcently I have received a number of articles about how insurance giant Lloyds of London has added to its insurance policies an exclusion relating to “electromagnetic fields”.
According to an article at the website of Citizens for Safe Technology:
“‘The Electromagnetic Fields Exclusion (Exclusion 32) is a General Insurance Exclusion and is applied across the market as standard. The purpose of the exclusion is to exclude cover for illnesses caused by continuous long-term non-ionising radiation exposure i.e. through mobile phone usage.”
(Interesting that telecommunications companies keep claiming that cell phones are safe when a major insurance company has now excluded coverage for health effects, isn’t it?)
Presumably if the insurance industry doesn’t want to cover illness related to cell phone use, I image that the industry would similarly will not want to cover injuries relating to smart meter exposure; after all the two technologies involve EMF exposure.
Are there any readers who are in the NZ insurance industry who may like to email me about this issue? (You can reach me through the Contact Form. Information will be held in confidence and will not be posted on the website unless permission is given for me to do this.)
