From over 34 years of practice I have seen numerous patients who had symptoms which were usually dismissed or referred inappropriately to Psychiatry which were ultimately traced to electromagnetic and wireless sensitivities. My wife and I both became extremely sensitive to such technology after living under power lines for 5 years before selling the property.
Our home was recently switched to the wireless smart meters without our being told and we are both now experiencing symptoms of sleeplessness and ringing ears and head pains. I contacted SDG&E and was told there was no provision to remove the device and return to the analogue meter. Even when I offered to provide a CAT 5 internet cable to the utility I was again told there was no provission and that there was a mandate in place for the installation of the smart meters and there were no provisions for anyone sensitive or disabled from electronic sensitivities.
I find this a grave error to not allow those who have such sensitivities to be denied the right to remove or opt out of the mandated installation. There is a current document prepared by the University of Washington which I find to be an excellent compilation of data on this subject by an organization which is unbiased and has zero profit motive. Please look at this reference while making decisions which effect those under your care to protect. Environ.Rev. 18: 369-395 (2010) doi:10.1139/A10-018 Published by NRC by B.
