Do you have headaches, ringing in the ears, or sleep problems since utility smart meters were deployed? You are not alone!
Smart meters emit radiation- which is making people sick!
The utilities downplay the risk by comparing smart meters to cell phones, wi-fi and other devices. These devices can also cause health problems! The WHO classifies wireless radiation as a 2B carcinogen, based on studies linking cell phone radiation to brain tumors!Learn how to Protect yourself and your loved ones and sign up to stay informed!

Here’s what people are saying:
8/13/2013 Hello, I live in an upstairs apartment, in Turlock, CA. I have been feeling sick since they installed 16 smart meters on a panel 6 feet away from my building. I have developed respiratory problems and insomnia and anxiety and pressure in my head. They have checked me for physical problems and Dr. says there is nothing wrong with me and they keep prescribing me anxiety meds to help me sleep at night that are messing with my heart and my head.
In a desperate attempt to figure out what is wrong with me, I came across a website that revealed a possibility that I may be exposed to the smart meter radiation. My husband has also developed asthma, coughing, bloody nose headaches.
Since then I have left my home and have been getting sicker because I cannot find anyone that believes me. Can you please help me find out how to even test for the exposure in my body?
If I stay away from the meters are my symptoms reversible mainly the insomnia and the anxiety. I have never experienced such a thing before. I am exhausted and I cannot find a doctor to help me. Most doctors are oblivious to what I am suggesting.
8/2013 I’ve been doing my own research for 8 months now, and have definitely concluded that Smart Meters are causing this horrible humming noise in my home. It is ruining my life and is violating my rights as a human being. I noticed it in the rental house I was living in for 7 months. I went to my parent’s house to see if I heard it there and sure enough I did. I finally moved to the country in Sonoma County and it’s horrible here too. Each place has Smart Meters. It’s not like a normal sound from a refrigerator, etc. It’s a low frequency humming sound that actually hurts my ears. I can’t get to sleep and have had to run a fan or some noise to try to drown it out. But, since it vibrates in my ear, that is hard to do. I’ve gone online and millions are complaining of this humming noise. This is INSANE! If you do the research, you will find out how harmful these meters are. What are they going to do to our children, who are sleeping in the rooms where they are connected? PGE lied to us, sneaked into our homes to put these in, have not done proper testing, and are causing health problems to millions. Some counties in CA have banned them and I really hope it continues. I will have to ask my landlord if he is willing to opt out, and I will pay whatever to get peace again. This is torture. And yes, there are electrosensitive people out there for the person who said there aren’t. Ignorance! Cell phones even hurt my ears. They have even linked heavy cell phone usage to brain tumors. Wake up everyone! It’s time to stand up to this bullshit.
2013 We had a Smart Meter installed on our home. I got sick and two weeks ago had a mini-stroke. We took the meter off our home after sending Central Hudson (our utility company) several sets of documents – detailing my illness and then my hospitalization – and they did nothing and did not even respond to our requests. After my stroke, we ordered an analog meter online and replaced their radiating meter. We video taped it and sent their meter back to them with a letter, along with all the other correspondence we had sent (return receipt and notarized).
The following Monday the electric company came to our home, with no notice nor explanation, and physically, right in front of me, cut our electric lines with a huge pair of clippers! — New York
5/2013 My family recently moved into a new home which has 4 smart meters, we had wifi also initially. I began feeling ill: symptoms included a sensation of electricity coursing through my body, headaches, my blood pressure soared, the sensation of my brain feeling like it was being squeezed, and a sensation of burning on my skin and eyes. I could not find relief anywhere in my home. The symptoms of my three sons are less than my own and more vague: headache, “feeling sick upon waking”, feeling a jolt type feeling sometimes.
I have purchased an RF meter but, even after much reading, still don’t understand the subject very well. I do know that my meter indicated that there are strong fields all over my home and very strong pulse points in four corners of my home from the smart meters. There is literally no place in my house that does not show high RF levels. I can’t escape from this feeling anywhere in my home and I even experience it where ever wifi is being used and even just near people using cell phones and near cell towers.
The effects that I feel from this exposure take a long to to subside even when I go to my father in laws where the meter shows no high levels of RF. I feel much, much better there but still have burning sensations on a much lower level. I have only been away from my home for about 12 hours now and can feel the symptoms greatly reduced.
I am afraid I am being caused permanent damage and most importantly that my young sons may be receiving damage from this exposure. They are only 7,7 (twins), and 10 years old. I am turning to you all for help because I am certain that I will not receive much help from the authorities. My own family cannot understand what is happening to me and to, I fear, my children. I am not crazy or imagining my symptoms. I hold a MA in Social Work, have a BA in psychology, have been employed in a professional setting for many years prior to the birth of my children. – Anon, Indiana, U.S.
4/29/2013 I am a 31 year old Female and I reside in Plantation, FL. I would say I started to notice major health concerns since the FPL Smart meter was put beside our bedroom window and it did me in. It gradually kept giving me headaches. Also, I have permanent retainers from wearing braces, behind my bottom and top teeth. Anytime a wi-fi or cell signal passes me I get a metal taste in my mouth. My Smart Meter peak occurred when I was in a deep sleep around 6:00am and was awaken to massive pressure in my head. It felt like my brain was on fire and it wanted to explode all at the same time. I woke up frantically screaming . I was holding my head and I had my husband scared. I hurried out of the bedroom still holding my head.
We were up all morning trying to figure out what it was. I felt as if my brain had burned. I knew it was from the Smart Meter because I was feeling it a little more each day. I called to have the Smart meter removed. For the rest of the week I felt the left side of my head and face numb. I couldn’t speak properly or concentrate. Since then I have not been the same. I have a very difficult time concentrating. The newest thing that is occurring is that I feel my skin burning. I feel the top of my head burning as well.
Since the whole Smart meter incident we have removed our home wi-fi and we put our cell phones on airplane mode. What is killing me though is that our entire community not only has Smart Meters but our association just made a deal with AT&T and every house has U-verse. Each house has a wireless modem which transmits wi-fi and television. Even though we had our wi-fi turned off from the modem we also had the company run all the cable lines through the attic to the rooms for television. Our houses are so close together that our house gets both of our neighbors signals from each side.
2013/ I am the proud parent of six, of the six children we have four children who are under the age of six. In July of last year the LADWP placed on our home a RF meter, the RF meter was placed on the back of our home which is directly located about 25 to 30 feet away from the LADWP power pole that is located on our property. In July of last year our children started to exhibit health symptoms and health signs that alarmed myself and my husband. The children began to have fevers out of no where, essentially their bodies were boiling and their fevers would go from 101 to 104 and sometimes to 105. My husband is a Clinical Partner at Cedar Sinai Hospital in the ICU so he is versed in the area of taking care of patients in extreme health decline, but he was not prepared to handle the weekly and monthly bouts that our smaller children began to have. Our children also began to have problems with the inability to control their bodily fluids, our five year old began peeing and pooping herself, our four year began to display the same problems, soon many of the smaller children were all displaying these symptoms and concerns. The children became depressed, and essentially we began to realize that our children were not the children who we cared for prior to the RF meter being placed on our property. We were the only family in our area to have this new meter so we do not have a frame of reference in our community to measure the health side effects against. Please help us, we are good honest people who have suffered for the past few months trying to put the pieces of this puzzle together.
[Admin’s note: The mother wrote that after the Smart Meter was removed in January the children’s symptoms “diminished greatly, they no longer get high fevers, or suffer from loss of their bodily function.” Meanwhile LADWP has terminated their power.]
West Kelowna man claims Smart Meters are killing him “…an Okanagan man claims the meters may be interfering with an important medical device – his pacemaker. Jerry Smith, 70, of West Kelowna is partially paralyzed as a result of the 10 strokes he’s had since last August….”
I am an engineer. I have used technology my entire adult life – cell phones, smart phones, wi-fi, laptops, you name it. I really enjoyed all of this and had no issues or fears related to technology.
Then, when a bank of smart meters were put next to our apartment, both my wife and I starting experiencing headaches, insomnia, heart palpitations and tinnitus. Within a couple weeks, I could no longer use a cell phone without the same symptoms. Within a month I could feel the microwave radiation from cell towers. I have had to completely change my life because of this. Jeromy [Testimony Jeromy submitted to the CPUC]
“Is there a list of safe communities with no smart meters? Our whole family is being sickened by the smart meters around us and we need to find a place to live quickly.”
“We are just miserable here. We can’t sleep at night, are dizzy, have headaches, ear pain, and more. We also own our home so it is not easy to just pick up and get away from the smart meters.” CA. 2013
