Pennsylvania Smart Meter Awareness (PASMA) just issued a second Press Release, in as many days, regarding astounding information from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Agency on Research for Cancer (IARC) regarding the radiofrequency radiation that AMI Smart Meters (SMs) emit. Guess what? Those Radioelectromagnetic Fields (RFs) coming off SMs are classified as “possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B).” Holy cow! Who knew? Did you?
Anyone who’s recently received a new electric or water meter better check to see if it’s an AMI digital SM because, if it is, you are getting RF Group/class 2B possible carcinogens being transmitted into your homes minute-by-minute! Utility customers, who are in-the-know about the WHO/IARC information and have refused SMs, are being threatened with power cutoffs, even though their electric bills are paid in full.
The Pennsylvania state legislature IS at fault for this grave error in judgment in passing former HB2200 into PA Act 129 of 2008 since members did not take into consideration that they were mandating constituents be subject to something in the same carcinogenic classification as mercury, lead and benzene!
With that being said, Pennsylvania state legislators need to pass corrective legislation immediately—as other states should too—to allow for legal opt-outs, and better still, for total dismantling of Smart Meters on any utility company meters. Go back to RF-free analog meters!
With the current rate of cancer in the USA escalating daily, Pennsylvania citizens should not have to live in fear of contracting, nor have 24/7/365 exposure to a class 2 carcinogen from their electric/water meters and through their house wiring. Below is the Press Release PASMA sent out regarding RFs as Group 2B carcinogens.
Consumers, customers, parents, Pennsylvania state legislators, PA Public Utility Commission, PECO, and other utility companies: please check out these references regarding EMFs/RFs and microwaves:

Lastly, the American Academy of Environmental Medicine published its “Recommendations Regarding Electromagnetic and Radiofrequency Exposure” wherein they state:
The AAEM recommends that physicians consider patients’ total electromagnetic exposure in their diagnosis and treatment, as well as recognition that electromagnetic and radiofrequency field exposure may be an underlying cause of a patient’s disease process.
AAEM goes on to list health problems associated with RF/electromagnetic/microwave frequencies. Pennsylvania Board of Health, please take note, too.

IARC CLASSIFIES RFs POSSIBLY CARCINOGENIC TO HUMANS
The World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), in a press release, classified Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Fields (RFs) as possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B).
That classification was based upon increased risk for glioma, a malignant type of brain cancer associated with wireless (cell) phone use, and RFs which also are emitted from AMI (Advanced Metering Infrastructure) Smart Meters, which PECO, an Exelon company, and other utilities in Pennsylvania currently are replacing vintage analog meters with.
The above designation was determined by a Working Group of 31 scientists from 14 countries at the IARC meeting in Lyon, France, in May 2011 that had assembled to assess the potential carcinogenic hazards from RF fields, including those from wireless communications, which includes Smart Meters.
The Chairman of the Working Group, Dr. Jonathan Samet (University of Southern California, USA) stated, “The evidence, while still accumulating, is strong enough to support a conclusion and the 2B classification. The conclusion means that there could be some risk, and therefore we need to keep a close watch for a link between cell phones and cancer risk.” Add AMI Smart Meter technology.
Any agent may be classified in 2B category solely on the basis of strong evidence from mechanistic and other relevant data, according to IARC. Mercury, lead, and benzene are W.H.O. class 2Bs also!
Why did then-Governor Ed Rendell sign into law Act 129 of 2008, an apparently illegal bill the Pennsylvania State Legislature passed that mandates Pennsylvanians should be subjected to cancer-causing radiofrequency technology? It seems either utility company lobbyists were effective in Harrisburg and/or Pennsylvania legislators did not exercise due diligence; defaulted on doing responsible homework regarding AMI Smart Meters technology; and—more importantly—did not engage the Precautionary Principle to safeguard the health of Pennsylvania citizens.
PASMA is calling on both chambers of the current 2015 Pennsylvania legislative session to immediately correct Act 129 by providing and enacting Opt-Out legislation for those who do not want, fear, or have medical reasons. Citizens should NOT have AMI Smart Meters FORCED on to them and their properties. Utility companies are harassing and threatening owners with cut off service if they do not give permission to replace RF-free analog meters with RF-emitting AMI Smart Meters.
The EM-Radiation Research Trust advises W.H.O./ IARC to move RFs from class 2B to class 1!
