Without first alerting us, our family had our analog utility meter switched out for a Smart Meter. We did some research on what this would mean for us and were pretty concerned by what we found.
I think you might be, too.
Problems with Smart Meters:
Smart meters communicate constantly 24/7 through electromagnetic, or radiofrequency (RF) waves, that flow all around us.
These RF waves move through space at the speed of light.
The smart meter is a two-way device on your home that communicates measured energy usage to your utility. No one has to come to read your meter because the meter pulses data about your usage to the electric company. It does this as often as every 15 minutes, in fact.
What is Dirty Electricity and How it is Related to Smart Meters?
Most of our home’s electronics are powered by direct current (DC) at about 12 volts. Yet, modern electrical circuits use alternating current (AC) at 120 or 240 volts. Electronic devices have to convert the AC power to DC power. This conversion creates “dirty electricity” in the form of erratic electromagnetic interference (EMI) which is a type of radio frequency (RF).
This dirty electricity travels through your home’s electrical system and radiates into your home through outlets, power strips, and electronics, polluting your surroundings with “electropollution.”
Smart meters contribute significantly to the levels of dirty electricity in a home.
With a smart meter, the repeated spikes and surges of higher frequencies of electricity run throughout every circuit of a home. Electropollution travels through the air, contaminating every room in your house. (source)
The good news is that we can often mitigate damage. I will get to that in a minute.
VERY REAL HEALTH CONCERNS:
The World Health Organization classifies wireless radio frequency (RF) emitted from devices as a class 2B carcinogen, same as DDT and lead, based on studies linking cell phone radiation to brain tumors.
Brain tumors are the leading cause of cancer-related death among children ages 0-14 years (source)
Military studies here show pulsed radiation can cause serious health problems, including tinnitus, memory loss and seizures.
Thousands of studies link biological effects to RF radiation exposure, including increased cancer risk, damage to the nervous system, adverse reproductive effects, DNA damage, and more.
RF radiation causes chronic inflammation leading to fatigue, cognitive problems, irritability, anxiety, and memory loss. (source)

As of January 14, 2021, 255 EMF scientists published in peer-reviewed journals from 44 nations signed the International Scientists’ Appeal.
Their warnings state that 4G/5G antenna densification is escalating health risks. They call it a global crisis and included:
- cell phones
- Wi-Fi, ‘smart’ meters, and 4G/5G grid technology
- digital baby monitors
Again, the World Health Organization (WHO) classifies wireless radiation as a carcinogen, based on studies linking cell phone radiation to brain tumors, with children 1-14 suffering the most. (source)
Vulnerable People Include Those with:
- EMF sensitivities
- medical implants
- compromised immune systems
- pregnant women
- the environment
If you have a pacemaker, PG&E warns you to stay 6 inches away from a Smart Meter. (source)
What Can I Do about Electropollution?
To eliminate much of the “dirty electricity” in your home, the easiest step is to unplug items you aren’t actively using. Simply turning items off isn’t always enough as many small appliances continue to draw power from the grid even when they’re not on. You can learn more in this article.
Detox Heavy Metals to Decrease Smart Meter Damage
We understand that heavy metals in the body such as from implants, vaccine adjuvants, MRIs, or amalgam teeth fillings act as an antenna that attracts EMFs to the body. Here are a few ways you can detoxify your body of heavy metals to help reduce your hypersensitivity to EMF radiation:
If you cannot opt out of having a smart meter, ensure that no one spend much time within 10 feet (3 meters) radius from it.
The beams are omnidirectional and go in all directions! Do not plan to live life (a bed, couch) behind the wall of where the meter is located.
Putting a Smart Meter Guard made of a conductive metal mesh screen over it will be helpful. It will block 90% to 95% of the RF radiation.
Or, make your own—watch this 3 minute video:
Parts used: Heavy duty aluminum kitchen foil, tape, aluminum window screening, 5 to 7 inch hose clamp.
You should have RF screening behind the fuse board on the wall that the fuse board is mounted upon to shield the RF exiting the back of the utility meter. It does not stop the RF, it simply lowers it some. I advise using an RF meter to check their shielding.
A few layers of heavy duty kitchen foil or aluminum window screening is generally sufficient on the wall behind the fuse board. (source)
You can use RF blocking paint inside your home.
States/Places Where You Can Opt-Out of Your Smart Meter:
If you want to opt-out, first ask for an analog meter, otherwise you may end up with an older first generation smart meter which has many of the same downsides.
Opposition has led at least seven states to enact policies to allow customers to opt-out of having a smart meter installed on their home, while New Hampshire requires customer consent for smart meter installation and Pennsylvania law prohibits opt-outs. At least another 22 states have allowed electric utilities to implement opt-out programs through proceedings with public utility commissions.
Opting out will cost you something every month, but health-, security-, and possibly dollar-wise, it will SAVE you!
