Thames Water seem to be ignoring requests for non-installation of Smart meters and doing it behind homeowners backs - issuing fines of hundreds of pounds where access is successfully refused - what they are doing is illegal and immoral!

I opted out of smart meters at an upfront cost of $69.00 and a $10.00 extra charge per month. I had no choice. I have EHS. I had an anaphylaxis attack when I was beside someone using a cell phone!recaptcha

My elderly mother had a smart meter installed not knowing about any concerns for health or fire risks... now she wants it removed, alas she can't get it removed and replaced with the old style 'dumb' meter.... where is the freedom of choice in that???

My reactions started one day after my smart meter was installed January of last year. I could not sleep, my fatigue level was astronomical. I could not organize the simplest tasks. Now, a year later, I have rashes that will not respond to treatment. Microwave radiation from smart meters inflames the body and the skin.

How dare you and the media encourage people to have smart meters installed - by not making the general public aware of the health hazards of all pulsating radiation devices on the ability of cells to detox effectively - the rise in cancer is almost purely down to increasing effects of radiation in peoples lives - thats bad enough when its from mobile phone masts and mobile phones and wifi all which have similar health effects - but to encourage people to have smart meters on the pretext of making them aware of the power they are using kidding them they could save money - is a total lie - its a form of electronic surveillance easily hacked by those with the knowledge to do so - the only saving is to the utilities and energy companies who will not need meter readers any more - these meters will gradually cook and destroy peoples cells - stopping detoxification in the normal way and increasing chronic disease - what will you do for profit ? putting the killing machines in peoples homes -Our electronic environment has brought us lots of comfort and convenience - computers - increased our knowledge - though theyve been damaging through increase in radiation - especially if working at one all day - look at increase in breast cancer - but mobile phone masts on schools and hospitals etc - doesn't that just show how government doesnt care any longer -gives into big business all the time - now smart meters - one for each utility - all of them radiating devices gradually making the inhabitants sicker and sicker - and there is loads of evidence - where meters have been fitted and people are begging to have them taken out -you have got to be more honest about the downside of these meters -but then there are no upsides - people with their minds only working through the limiting perspective of their phones and their tablets -generally under - educated on the ill effects of pulsating and ionizing radiations will only know what the mass media wants them to know - seems like big business is organising a population demise

All anyone needs to do is check their blood before and after three minutes of exposure to a smart meter.

I do not want smart meters in my house or neighbourhood.There is a mass of scientific data today concerning the dangers of wireless radition we do not need more microwave or EMF devices in our homes.Smart meters are an intrusive government data surveillance tool they are a further infringement on our civil liberties.
They must be opposed,I do not wish to be exposed to more unnecessary WiFi radiation.

Totally un-needed radiation, creates job loss for meter readers, several instances where they have caught fire, can be mis-used to spy on people, these are just a few to make you think. Thanks for your time!
