Professor Olle Johansson to speak as part of free online Alzheimers and Dementia Summit

Professor Olle Johansson (who is a neuroscientist and expert on electrohypersensitivity)  is talking at a FREE summit on Alzheimer’s and dementia that is coming up soon.

One of the unfortunate truths of our times is that exposure to non-ionising microwave radiation (the type of radiation produced by cell phones, cordless phones and smart meters) can harm the brain and potentially lead to neurodegenerative disease.

That’s the bad news.

The good news is that if you want to keep your brain in good working order there are lots of things you can do such as avoid the use of mobile and cordless phones and  say no to a smart meter.

Plus the FREE online summit also has information about treatments for dementia that you might not otherwise learn about.  (Yes, there are treatments for some types of dementia; unfortunately many doctors are not up to date with them.)

 

You can register for the summit at this link:

Smart meters are not compulsory in NZ

Please note that while some electricity company staff claim that smart meters are compulsory or some sort of government requirement it is NOT compulsory to have a smart meter in NZ.

Please note that it seems to be quite common for smart meters to be installed without prior notification, so if you still have an analogue meter and want to keep it, it would be prudent to take the above steps to prevent a smart meter installation NOW.

Resources to help you refuse a smart meter, including bilingual Te Reo/English options may be found at this LINK of www.stopsmartmeters.org.nz

Smart meter education campaign at Whangarei Farmers’ Market

Smart meter education campaign at Whangarei Farmers’ Market

Everyone who has ever been to Whangarei for more than a day or two knows that the place to be on Saturday morning is the amazing Whangarei Famers market where you can buy great fresh produce and other treats grown and farmed in Northland.

It’s the perfect place for a smart meter education campaign to reach lots of people.

Below you can see photos of the Whangarei activists’ new initiative:

The eye-catching signs (some of which had previously been on display in Betty Hooper’s garden) allowed people to engage with the message in their own time and became a focus of interest and discussion.

The photos of the smart meter education campaign at Whangarei Farmers’ Market were taken on February 27, 2016.

Waitaki Herald headline: “Smart meter grumble grows”

The smart meter issue was front page of the Waitaki Herald today with the headline “Smart Meter Grumble Grows”.

The story relates how a team of Oamaru residents who have been organising public meetings* in the town ahead of a planned roll out of smart meters by Meridian have called for a moratorium on smart meters.

Perhaps predictably, a spokesperson for an electricity company was qu0ted as saying that there was “no evidence” to support concern about adverse health effects from smart meters.

Lack of time prevents me from rebutting the spokeswoman’s claims fully;  however I would suggest anyone who wants information and smart meters and health begin by reading this link:  https://www.stopsmartmeters.org.nz/health-issues/

 

 

*A further public meeting is planned for August 17, please see this link for details:
