Widespread wireless installations including Smart Meters are creating safety risks for 20-25 million people, who have medical implants such as pacemakers, infusion pumps, metal rods and hearing aids. In some cases these interference risks are life threatening. Dr. Gary Olhoeft, professor of Geophysics in Colorado, has a medical implant, a deep brain stimulator for Parkinson’s disease. Olhoeft shares his research and knowledge about wireless interference with implants.
In part two Dr. Ohloeft describes a situation where as he passed through a retail store security system his stimulator was turned off. He shares, “I had to turn myself back on. I have about four seconds to do that before I start shaking so bad I can’t do it.”
Special thanks to EMR Policy for these important videos. EMR Policy writes, “Translating the complex science and drawing upon personal experience of such interference with his own implant, Olhoeft’s information poses important policy questions on protecting the disabled from interference. ”
Dr. Carpenter states,“We have evidence…that exposure to radiofrequency radiation…increases the risk of cancer, increases damage to the nervous system, causes electrosensitivity, has adverse reproductive effects and a variety of other effects on different organ systems. There is no justification for the statement that Smart Meters have no adverse health effects. “
Dr. Carpenter further advises, “An informed person should demand that they be allowed to keep their analog meter”
(For those of you already Smart Metered, demand to have the analog meter restored, call your your utility and your state public utility commission)
BIG THANKS to Dr. Carpenter and to Maine’s Smart Meter Safety Coalition who “recently caught up with Dr. David Carpenter, a Harvard Medical School-trained physician who headed up the New York State Dept. of Public Health for 18 years before becoming Dean of the School of Public Health at the University of Albany, where he currently directs the Institute for Health and the Environment” (www.smartmetersafety.com)
