ALERT: AAEM Releases Recommendations EMF and RF Exposures (7/12/12)

**NEW** The American Academy of Environmental Medicine released its recommendations regarding electromagnetic field (EMF) and radio frequency (RF) exposures.

These recommendations by AAEM, just released on 7/12/12, will take the world by storm. AAEM recommends that patients with a broad range of medical conditions avoid sources of EMF and RF radiation, especially smart meters on patients’ homes and on neighbors’ homes, nearby.

These AAEM recommendations may be useful for accommodation requests.

Print the recommendations below and take to your doctor, immediately! If you have one of these medical conditions, your physician may wish to issue a request for accommodation letter on your behalf, which you may send to the utility to request to have smart meters removed from your home and the homes of your neighbors, without fees. If the utility refuses, you may then consider filing a discrimination complaint with the federal gov’t or you may consider seeking a disability rights attorney to discuss filing a potential discrimination lawsuit.

Learn more at How to File an Accommodation Letter / Discrimination Complaint Associated with RF Radiation from Smart Meters. Disability law clinics are available for free consultations in some areas.

American Academy of Environmental Medicine Recommendations Regarding

Electromagnetic and Radiofrequency Exposure (7/12/12)

Physicians of the American Academy of Environmental Medicine recognize that patients are being adversely impacted by electromagnetic frequency (EMF) and radiofrequency (RF) fields and are becoming more electromagnetically sensitive.

The AAEM recommends that physicians consider patients’ total electromagnetic exposure in their diagnosis and treatment, as well as recognition that electromagnetic and radiofrequency field exposure may be an underlying cause of a patient’s disease process.

Based on double‐blinded, placebo controlled research in humans,1 medical conditions and disabilities that would more than likely benefit from avoiding electromagnetic and radiofrequency exposure include, but are not limited to:

• Neurological conditions such as paresthesias, somnolence, cephalgia, dizziness, unconsciousness, depression

• Musculoskeletal effects including pain, muscle tightness, spasm, fibrillation

• Heart disease and vascular effects including arrhythmia, tachycardia, flushing, edema

• Pulmonary conditions including chest tightness, dyspnea, decreased pulmonary function

• Gastrointestinal conditions including nausea, belching

• Ocular (burning)

• Oral (pressure in ears, tooth pain)

• Dermal (itching, burning, pain)

• Autonomic nervous system dysfunction (dysautonomia).

Based on numerous studies showing harmful biological effects from EMF and RF exposure, medical conditions and disabilities that would more than likely benefit from avoiding exposure include, but are not limited to:

• Neurodegenerative diseases (Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease, and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. 2‐6

• Neurological conditions (Headaches, depression, sleep disruption, fatigue,

dizziness, tremors, autonomic nervous system dysfunction, decreased memory,

attention deficit disorder, anxiety, visual disruption). 7‐10

• Fetal abnormalities and pregnancy. 11,12

• Genetic defects and cancer.2,3,13‐19

• Liver disease and genitourinary disease.12,20

Because Smart Meters produce Radiofrequency emissions, it is recommended that patients with the above conditions and disabilities be accommodated to protect their health. The AAEM recommends: that no Smart Meters be on these patients’ homes, that Smart Meters be removed within a reasonable distance of patients’ homes depending on the patients’ perception and/or symptoms, and that no collection meters be placed near patients’ homes depending on patients’ perception and/or symptoms.

    [...] In the course of reading thousands of news articles and communicating with informed, independent scientists, physicians, experts, and concerned citizens all over the world on smart meter issues, it must be said that elderly people are more susceptible to RF radiation. There is a “die-off” reported in some areas when smart meters are installed – more heart attacks and coronary problems, more strokes, and out of control blood pressure and heart rate. This is firmly documented in many peer-reviewed studies on RF radiation. Further the American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM)  has issued warnings about people with certain medical conditions (commonly found in the elderly) that must avoid RF radiation, in addition to many other groups, such as children.
