Did you know that nagging headache you can’t get rid of could be caused by smart meter radiation?
Or the fact that you toss and turn at night could be due to the meter right outside your bedroom?
Thanks to certain studies, websites, and leaders in the industry, more and more people are aware that their smart meters emit electromagnetic radiation.
However, we’ve noticed that simply being aware of that fact doesn’t necessarily mean people understand the consequences...or how the effects of that radiation translate to real life.
So that’s what we want to talk about today.
How Smart Meter Radiation Affects the Body
We know that Earth has a frequency of its own called the Schumann resonance.
We also know that our own bodies operate within a field of natural frequencies, and that artificial EMFs generated by wifi tech and smart meters (to name a few) interfere with them.
But the how? The mechanism by which it interferes?
That’s been largely speculation until recently.
A 2013 study published in the Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine revealed at least one of the ways EMFs act, and that’s by activating the voltage-gated calcium channels (VGCC) within our cells.
Now that sounds super sciency and confusing, so let’s break it down:
These channels are located in the membranes of your cells. When “activated,” they discharge ions that lead to the release of nitric oxide into your mitochondria (the cell’s energy manufacturer).
These convert into dangerous free radicals, which can alter proteins and even DNA. When unleashed and in abundance, they lead to oxidative stress and eventually oxidative damage.
Hence the many symptoms associated with chronic smart meter exposure:
- Inability to manage stress
- Heart arrhythmias
- And more
This 2013 analysis cites 23 other studies that have proven the exact same action of EMFs, so it’s no longer just one theory in a sea of many.
Other research conducted on voltage-gated calcium channels reveal another problem:
Science tells us that VGCCs are responsible for ushering calcium into the cell. These channels are tightly regulated to prevent too much calcium from entering.
However, EMFs make them “open up,” allowing calcium to flood into the cell, which sets off a chain reaction of biological effects, even triggering cell death according to this 1994 study.
