One of the more common misunderstandings about Radio Frequency (RF or Microwave) radiation from ‘smart’ meters, cell phones, cell towers, etc. is the difference between the frequency and power density of this radiation.
Frequency refers to the number of oscillations per second (eg. 60 Hz (or hertz) is 60 “up and down” motions or “oscillations” per second”). Power density refers to the intensity (or the level) of the radiation at a specific location. Frequency is often used to identify a particular RF source (example: microwave ovens and wi-fi both transmit at about 2.45 GHz (gigahertz) or 2450 MHz (megahertz)). Different frequencies have varying impacts on plants, animals and humans, as well as non-living matter.
People often (wrongly) assume that official U.S. government guidelines for RF (power density) exposure levels reflect the best known science, rather than levels convenient for the telecommunications and utilities industries.
Ron Powell is a retired U.S. Government career scientist (Ph.D. in Applied Physics from Harvard University). He worked for the Executive Office of the President, the National Science Foundation, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology. He currently interacts with other scientists, with physicians, and with aware individuals worldwide about the impact of radiofrequency radiation on human health. Dr. Powell has previously analyzed the risks to health, cybersecurity, and privacy from various types of smart meter.
These new charts produced by Dr. Powell shed light on both frequency and power density, to help the public understand what we are being exposed to, and how to avoid the worst of the impacts. We appreciate Dr. Powell’s independent approach and informed science, helping those of us without a Ph.D. understand the risks of wireless radiation exposure and make decisions about what levels of EMF to tolerate for the safety of our families.
For the convenience of individuals using the Cornet ED88T Plus meter, Dr. Powell shows, on the Table of RF Power Density and Electric Field, the levels reflected by the LED indicators on this meter when purchased from StopSmartMeters.org.
