Alliance for Natural Health : article on smart meters

The Alliance for Natural Health has featured an excellent article dated 12 April 2017 titled “Smart meters: the choice is yours … at a price”, see here.

The article covers:

  • Electric, Gas and Water smart meters;
  • The EU foundation to Smart Meters which started with the 2006 EU directive on energy end-use efficiency and energy services;
  • The right of refusal in the UK; and
  • The main risks of smart meters, namely health, security and privacy.


N.B: There is one error in the article, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified Radio Frequency Electro Magnetic Fields as a possible cancer-causing agent (Group 2B) in May 2011. Having said that there are scientists who consider there is now sufficient data for the classification to be upgraded to a probable cancer-causing agent (Group 2A), see here and here.
