Smart Meter Action Kit


This "Smart Meter" Action Kit contains valuable information about so-called "Smart Meters."  Conveniently, this information is being withheld by hydro and power authorities in hopes that deployment will go ahead unchallenged, without sufficient research into the health, safety and security issues involved.

Smart Meters: Are They Smart For You? U.S. FLYER 2016

4th Edition Stop Smart Meters! Informative and comprehensive hand-out

Feb. 1st, 2016: StopSmartMeters.org has published the 2016 fourth edition (pdf) of our popular and educational smart meter awareness color brochures.  What is a "Smart" Meter?

It is a new, wireless replacement for the old analog electric, gas and water meters on homes and businesses. Unlike an analog (electro-mechanical) meter, a "smart" meter is a surveillance device that monitors your "energy consumption behavior." It emits biologically destructive "pulsed" microwave radiation every few seconds into your home and neighborhood and may cause cancer, damage your DNA, harm wildlife, catch fire, and disable computers and appliances. People all across the USA and the world are concerned over these health, privacy and safety issues.

Doctor's Information Package

Addressed to Medical Professionals. Useful to all. Updated October, 2015

The following package is for those who wish to approach their doctors with information regarding the possible health risks from non-thermal microwave radiation.  It contains links organized into specific health effect categories.  These links can be printed out according to personal areas of need or concern, and used to start a dialogue with doctors who may not as yet have associated certain health conditions with EMF or RF exposure.  

The introductory letter on pages 1 and 2 contains a link to the entire list, and may be useful to your doctor as a reference tool. 


"Dear Medical Professional:

"Your patient has asked us for support in providing you with information regarding the possible health risks from non-thermal microwave radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation, recently reclassified by the WHO/IARC as a Class 2B, possible human carcinogen.

"This WHO risk category also includes lead, DDT, chloroform, and dioxane, and is relevant to all wireless devices emitting radiofrequency electromagnetic fields, including cordless phones, cell phones, IPads, Wi-Fi routers, wireless games, baby monitors, and smart meters . . .

"Many doctors have already given medical advice to their patients by way of a medical letter or note on a prescription form stating that the patient should avoid, for medical reasons, living in a residence or residential complex at which a wireless meter is operating in order to maintain their health or avoid aggravating a medical condition. This medical advice stating the health condition and advising the patient that they should avoid ongoing exposure to wireless radiofrequency and smart meter emissions will allow your patient to participate in the Human Rights Action currently underway. We are hopeful that the individual's right to protect their health as advised by their medical doctor will be upheld by the Human Rights Tribunal, and this forced exposure within their own home to undesirable microwave radiofrequency emissions will be replaced with reasonable and respectful accommodation by BC Hydro . . . "

Information categories contained in this package: 

  1. Microwave Radiofrequency Electromagnetic Radiation - General 
  2. Smart Meters
  3. Interference with medical devices / Smart Meter Risk
  4. Children
  5. EHS/ES - Electrosensitivity
  6. Diabetes
  7. Heart
  8. Tinnitus / Microwave Hearing / Dental Effects
  9. Sleep and Insomnia
  10. Infertility / Sperm Damage
  11. Cell Towers - Applicable to constant low-level exposures
  12. Cell Phones
  13. Published Articles
  14. BEES - This section included due to potential impacts on human health from loss of bees and pollination
  15. Lawsuits, Scientific Statements and Letters
  16. Cancer
  17. Brain Function / Epilepsy / Alzheimer's / ALS

There's an important new book out that will likely be very useful for this and other related issues: your right to know; how to use the law to access government information; how to access what government hides; how to hold institutions accountable; how to request pertinent info from government using both informal and formal requests. This information is rightfully free because it is a public interest issue.   


"In their recently published book "Your Right to Know", journalists Jim Bronskill and David McKie have done yeomans' work explaining how Canadians can use freedom of information requests to get government secrets. But, at the federal level, it's work they shouldn't have needed to do -- pointing to another problem with Canada's broken access to information laws.  

"Introduced in 1980 by Pierre Trudeau's Liberals, the Access to Information Act gave Canadians a limited right to request government records. The bureaucracy's filing cabinets could now metaphorically be opened by anyone -- unless the records in them included 75 different kinds of information that would still be considered secret.  

"But, even with those limits, the Trudeau administration seemed to have little interest in telling voters about their newfound rights or how to exercise them.  

"Just before the act came into force, the Globe and Mail told readers the government would be "placing posters in post offices and public libraries" to advertise the new program. But "it plans nothing else in the way of public information," a deficiency noted by information commissioner Inger Hansen in her first annual report. . . .
