Smart Meter allergy: Also known as Asinity Sympatico Syndrome. [ASS]


 Smart Meter allergy: Also known as Asinity  Sympatico Syndrome. [ASS]
I heard a woman complaining on radio 3AW yesterday complaining about her ‘Electro – Hypersensitivity’ to Smart Meters. Also known as Asinity  Sympatico Syndrome. [ASS]
It is understood by those who ‘know’ that it is a manifestation of the plethora of conservative governments trying change voting patters.
These nefarious Smart Meters are simply a conspiracy to try to make Labor voters ‘smart.’ The poor woman was simply showing the standard leftist reaction to being on the wrong side of the Bell Curve.
She should be patient till she stops getting stupider; when the Bio – Electric effect kicks in before the next election.
Pathetically there is a government department studying this problem under the guidance of Project leader: A/Prof. Rodney Croft
Sad really: people should be allowed to vote for Labor if they want. The Human Rights Commission is investigating.

Smart meters are not dangerous
There are a lot of myths about how smart meters work and their effects on wellbeing and property. It’s important to know that there is no evidence that smart meters pose any danger to your property or health. Smart meters have been installed in homes and businesses around the world with no ill-effects experienced by occupants.
Myth: Smart meters emit high levels of microwave radiation.
Smart meters do not emit microwave radiation. They communicate using radio frequency, which is the same spectrum used by television and radio stations. Smart meters use extremely low, infrequent signals and will not emit any more radio frequency than what is already present in most households.  Radiofrequency levels from smart meters are lower than those produced by common household appliances like microwave ovens, mobile phones and baby monitors. The meters use a wireless signal to transmit around four times a day for 10 seconds at a time. This signal is only active for an average of one minute a day.
Myth: The health effects of radio frequency have not been researched properly
As part of the smart meter rollout in Victoria, the State Government commissioned independent testing to ensure smart meters do not pose health risks to the community.  Results showed that meter exposure levels inside dwellings ranged from 0.000001 to 0.0113 per cent of the General Public Limit specified by ARPANSA Radiation Protection Standards.[i]  
In a study on radio frequency energy and mobile phones, the World Health Organisation found no increased health risk due to radio frequency.[ii] Unlike mobile phones, smart meters do not operate at close range and emit significantly less radio frequency. Also, smart meters are on for mere seconds each day and are in ‘sleep’ mode most of the time.
Myth: Energy companies will use smart meters to turn off appliances in my house without my permission.
Smart meters are not set up to operate appliances inside your home or business. No-one can use a smart meter to remotely switch off an appliance inside your home.
Myth: Smart meter malfunctions cause fires
There is no evidence that smart meter malfunctions cause fires. In fact, in Victoria, where smart meters have been installed in almost every property over the past three years, installers uncovered thousands of electrical faults and hazards in existing meters that were able to be fixed before they caused fires. There has not been a fire that can be attributed to a smart meter in Victoria – they are extremely safe. The meters must meet the highest safety standards and may only be installed by a specially accredited master electrician who has undertaken specific training.
Myth: Information sent from my smart meter will alert people to when I am out of my home, leaving me vulnerable to burglary
The information sent by your smart meter is on a protected frequency, making extremely difficult for anyone to access it to find out when you are out of your home.
