Smart Meters: Possibly Carcinogenic?

TVs, microwaves, smartphones to wifi routers and smart meters. Smart meters are gadgets capable of wirelessly exchanging data. Essentially, these devices communicate like us humans, however, different from human communication, smart devices emit EMF radiations to communicate. 2 types of radiation emit from smart devices specifically:


  1. Extremely Low Frequency radiation (ELF); a by-product of a power source.
  2. Radio Frequency radiation (RF), which comes from the wireless data transmission.

The health problems caused by these non-ionizing radiations arise from lasting harm to a cell and its DNA. This occurs when continuous exposure weakens the cell's protective outer layer, enabling too much calcium to enter the cell and cause chemical alterations. The strength of these emissions increases significantly as you get closer to the source of EMF. 

Should you be concerned about smart meters near your residence? Do smart meters raise concerns among other smart gadgets? Do they emit greater or minor EMF levels of radiation compared to other smaller devices, such as your mobile phone?

What are Smart Meters?

A smart meter stands as an electronic apparatus positioned outside your residence, intricately linked to your home's electrical grid. Its primary function involves quantifying and documenting various aspects of electricity usage, encompassing consumption levels, voltage, current intensity, and power factor analysis.

This device serves as a central hub where all the electrical circuits within your home converge. Its role extends to monitoring the flow of power coursing through these intricate circuits, and then disseminating this data wirelessly to both the homeowner and the utility provider.

The insights gleaned from tracking electrical consumption serve a dual purpose: empowering homeowners with insights to monitor their usage patterns, while concurrently providing indispensable billing data for the utility company's accurate invoicing. 

Smart Meters' Emission of Wireless EMF Radiation

Smart meters share technological similarities with various wireless devices like cell phones, satellites, and WiFi systems, utilizing Radio Frequency (RF) radiation for their operations. However, unlike continuous signaling in cellular gadgets, smart meters differ in their transmission frequency. These meters emit RF signals sporadically, typically utilizing transmission windows of about 1% or even less, distinguishing their communication patterns from those of conventional cell phones and wireless devices. Smart meters predominantly emit RF signals during maintenance intervals, transmitting data updates for up to an hour. Yet, even during this span, their emission duration doesn't rival the continuous signaling of a mobile phone that frequently occurs throughout the day. When assessing EMF exposure, time and distance are crucial. Smart meters are usually situated exteriorly, distanced from your home. This spatial variance aids in curbing potential exposure to EMF radiation. When examining these figures, American-style smart meters exhibit a power density ranging from 100 to 400 milliwatts per square meter (mW/m²) at a distance of 1 meter during transmission periods. Extend the distance to 3 meters, and the power density diminishes, registering between 10 to 40 milliwatts per square meter (mW/m²).

So, Should You Be Worried About Smart Meters' EMF Radiation?

While smart meters offer convenience, concerns linger about the (ELF) emissions they emit and their location. 

RF radiation is classified by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), as “possibly carcinogenic to humans.” This is based on the finding of a possible link in at least one study between cell phone use and a specific type of brain tumor. Because RF radiation is a possible carcinogen, and smart meters give off RF radiation, it is possible that smart meters could increase cancer risk. In specific apartment complexes, multiple smart meters clustered near individual units, measuring power consumption for the entire building, could significantly amplify exposure levels, raising potential health concerns. When assessing radiation exposure, your distance from the EMF source is a very crucial factor. Having a smart meter installed directly on the wall adjoining your living room or bedroom may elevate your exposure to it's EMF radiations. Especially during sleep, it's prudent to ensure your sleeping space remains free from such EMF radiation. 

People around the globe are becoming ill after exposure to the radio-frequency radiation emitted by Wireless Smart Meters. 2 surveys were conducted by Ronald M. Powell, who holds a Ph.D. in Applied Physics from Harvard University. During his Government career, he worked for the Executive Office of the President, the National Science Foundation, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology. The results of these surveys including others from the EMF Safety Network also show reports of new or worsening health symptoms including:

  • Insomnia, sleep disturbance, or sleep disruption
  • Headaches, head pain, or dull head
  • Tinnitus, ringing or buzzing/noises in ears
  • Lethargy, tiredness, fatigue, exhaustion, or weakness
  • Cognitive disturbance, inability to concentrate or think, disorientation, or memory loss
  • Abnormal sensations, including nerve pain, neuropathy, burning sensations, tremors...
  • Dizziness/loss of balance
  • Heart palpitations
  • Nausea
  • Onset of Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity Syndrome
  • Pain (in joints, bones, muscles, other and including arthritic changes)
  • Pressure/heat/weird feeling in or on head
  • Anxiety/agitation/irritability/restlessness
  • Problems with eyes or eyesight/blurred vision
  • Chest pain/pain in the heart
  • Rashes/skin irritation/skin discoloration/dry skin

The state of Vermont published an official report that delved into health worries associated with the integration of smart meters within the state. This comprehensive report encompassed an analysis of radiation measurements obtained specifically from smart meters installed in residential areas.

Individuals experiencing Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity Syndrome (EHS) could potentially face heightened reactions due to the introduction of new smart meters. These individuals are already more vulnerable to symptoms triggered by EMFs. Prolonged exposure in close proximity to these meters might exacerbate health issues for these individuals.

As mentioned earlier, smart meters use RF ( radio frequency ) EMFs to communicate with your energy provider. The trouble is, these RF-EMFs have demonstrated potentially harmful effects in clinical studies.

“…we conclude that exposure increased the number of animals with tumors in the heart. Tumors of the brain were also considered to be related to exposure; and increased numbers of male rats with tumors of the adrenal gland were also related to exposure.”

– National Toxicology Report, 2018

In essence, smart meters add even more E-smog (electronic smog) to your daily dose of EMF exposure.

How To Protect Yourself Against Smart Meter EMFs

Your phones, computers, wifi routers and 5G Towers near your residence operate on similar frequencies. That means you’re bombarded with E-Smog from multiple different sources on a daily basis. While these smart devices including smart meters offer convenience, the harmful risks that come with it are simply not worth it and that means it’s time to take action to defend yourself and your loved ones from the EMF menace.

One precaution is to sleep at a distance of preferably 10 feet or a minimum of 5 feet away from smart meters. Should the smart meter be located directly on the other side of your bedroom wall, requesting routine meter replacements could potentially reduce your exposure levels. However, this might entail an additional fee for the installation of an analog meter and ongoing monthly monitoring.

Moreover, an effective approach involves affixing a shielding material, such as aluminum or copper, directly onto the wall housing the wiring linked to the smart meter. This setup aims to prevent the radiation from permeating your immediate living area. Importantly, the chosen shielding material should possess the capability to block Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) radiation, not solely Radio Frequency (RF).
