April 12, 2012
Wichita, KS” The American Academy of Environmental Medicine today released its position paper on electromagnetic field (EMF) and radiofrequency (RF) health effects calling for immediate caution regarding smart meter installations. Citing several peer”reviewed scientific studies, the AAEM concludes that “significant harmful biological effects occur from non”thermal RF exposure” showing causality. The AAEM also expresses concern regarding significant, but poorly understood quantum field effects of EMF and RF fields on human health.
“More independent research is needed to assess the safety of “Smart Meter” technology,” said Dr. Amy Dean, board certified internist and President”Elect of the AAEM. “Patients are reporting to physicians the development of symptoms and adverse health effects after “Smart Meters” are installed on their homes. Immediate action is necessary to protect the public”s health.”
