Doctors discuss wireless radiation and children’s health

The leading US experts on wireless radiation and human health impacts participate in a live press conference prior to their panel at the Pediatric Academic Societies Annual Meeting in Baltimore. Featuring Dr. Devra Davis, Dr. Hugh Taylor, Dr. Martha Herbert and Dr. Catherine Steiner-Adair.

Please note that cordless phones and cell phones, wi-fi and microwave ovens are among some of the highest sources of the wireless radiation in many homes.

A traditional landline with a cord and a safe hardwired internet connection is a good way to start to protect your children’s health.  (Here and here are links to help you.)  Also:  Avoid using a microwave because a lot of microwave radiation can leak out of these ovens.



Smart meters are not compulsory in NZ

Roll outs of wireless so-called “smart” meters are ongoing in many areas of NZ, including, currently, the Hokianga region. (Some companies may describe smart meters as “advanced” meters in their letters to customers or simply state that the company plans to install the next generation meter or upgrade or a replace the existing meter.)

If you live in an area where smart meters are being installed you may  receive a letter stating that your meter will be upgraded or replaced, however sometimes letters get lost in the mail and do not arrive prior to a planned installation.

Please note that while some electricity company representatives tell customers that smart meters are “compulsory” or are a “government requirement” or use other words to this effect, this is not true.  The legal situation regarding electricity meters is explained at this link.
