Wireless technology not proven safe
Editor: Smart meters are not safe.
Your columnist Tom Fletcher’s ridicule of Team Tinfoil (Opponents near end of road, The Times, Jan. 24) and Energy Minister Rich Coleman’s bland assurances can point to no responsible scientific evidence that wireless technology is safe.
If it was safe, why would insurance companies refuse to cover claims of damage to human health and the environment from microwave radiation and why do cellphone companies warn in the small print not to hold the device against your head?
People today are smart enough to know the difference between science and industry propaganda.
Just read the news release or a summary of the 2012 update of the BioInitiative Report (www.bioinitiative.org) and it’s plain to see that this group of independent scientists and public policy experts from several countries are telling us that there’s lots to be concerned about in our blind rush to install wireless computers in every school and smart meters on every building.
