On April 23, representatives from Stop Smart Meters UK ( http://stopsmartmeters.org.uk/
) spoke to British MP’s about the clear and present risks which ‘smart’ meters would impose upon British families.
Dr Liz Evans spoke of health effects, saying there are hundreds of studies showing “evidence of harm could be acute”, including possible “chronic effects from long term exposure such as cancer, infertility, dementia, genetic damage, immune system dysfunction and damage to foetuses”.
IT systems engineer Mike Mitcham added newly uncovered information about the dangers of hacking vulnerabilities and privacy violations caused by the new meters installations.
On May 10, the UK Government announced that the ‘smart’ meter installations throughout the country will be delayed by more than a year.
