HIGHLIGHT TITLE ABOVE TO SEE CANDIDATES'
A word from SSMA . . .
In choosing the candidates
who will best SERVE and REPRESENT our interests, it is important to look for the
candidate whose mind is open and not made up, as well as being creatively
We can always inform and educate someone on the latest
developments and scientific studies on the subject of microwave radiation and
wireless technology if they are not familiar with them.
It's easy for
candidate to claim that nothing more can be done. But in reality, the
"solution(s)" has/have not been brought forth yet and there are
plenty of alternatives or even new technologies not yet explored.
those who think they know it all and not open to other point of view beside
their own, those are the candidates who will not make good leaders for our
community. For those who acknowledge not knowing everything but open to
taking the "Precautionary Principles" and agreed to first do no harm,
they will learn as more new information comes out each day.
Clearly, from the responses we received more information needs to
be shared with these candidates. We received no response from one mayoral and
three council candidates and one council candidate wrote that he thought the
matter was taken care of and requires no further input.

SMART METER HELL IN SEDONA
after smart meters were installed in the six properties surrounding Marianne
Hartsong's property, she began to experience strange phenomenon. Her bees
swarmed and then suddenly died, her chicken's egg laying pattern changed, and she
still can't get her hands coordinated to return to playing her viola, despite
the anti-microwave device she had installed in her home to minimize the
She spoke with
APS about removing the meters and the representative was not at all helpful.
Hear it from
her own lips and learn what we all may be facing in time.
It's not too late to have any smart meters that were installed, replaced with your non-transmitting non-analog meter.

HIGHLIGHT TITLE ABOVE TO READ DOCUMENT
On May 30, Sedona Smart Meter Awareness (SSMA) received a copy of
Dr. Olle Johansson’s comments submitted to the Arizona Department of Health
Services (ADHS), about the scope of ADHS’ study being done to determine health effects from radio
frequency radiation emitted by APS smart meters. SSMA is a local group
informing the community about health, safety and privacy effects of smart
Dr. Johansson, Associate Professor, Experimental and Dermatology
Unit head, Department of Neuroscience at Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden
is a world recognized authority in EMF radiation and health effects.
He commented in response to ADHS’ study parameters focusing on
“human toxicology” and “limited to examining the transmission signals to see if
they conform to federally approved guidelines.” ADHS notes that if the
transmissions “exceed/deviate from allowable federal standards,” it will then
research the literature, consult with its “CDC partners to see if there is any
cause and effect relationship documented that would be detrimental to human
health.” According to SSMA, FCC guidelines are not related to health effects.
Dr. Johansson observes the “consequences of chronic exposure to
pulsed microwave exposure from smart meters is often denied…Exposure to
electromagnetic fields not only may induce acute thermal effects to living
organisms, but also non-thermal effects, the latter often after longer
exposures. This has been demonstrated in a very large number of studies and
includes cellular DNA-damage, disruptions and alternations of cellular
functions like increases in intracellular stimulatory pathways and calcium
handling, disruption of tissue structures like the blood-brain barrier, impact
on vessel and immune functions, and loss of fertility. . . practically all
animals and plants may be at stake.”
He urges that “the “precautionary principle” should be in effect before
the introduction of new technology to the public. This was not done with smart
meters. Full comments ABOVE

ELECTROMAGNETIC & MICROWAVE RADIATION HEALTH SURVEY FOR THE GREATER SEDONA AREA
We use SurveyMoz as our Online Survey Softwareprovider
purpose of the questionnaires are to determine any changes in your
health status during the period that smart meters are being installed.
While the results will be published, your identity will remain
ask you to identify yourself only with initials and your Zip Code only
so we can compare your first, second and final questionnaire responses.
If you are at a business location, please feel free to send
questionnaires for all employees willing to participate.
your contact information will enable us to anonymously plot your
location on a Sedona map to see if there are clusters around cell phone
antennas and towers, high intensity electromagnetic antennas, or to
identify other areas of concern including clusters of electromagnetic
These health questionnaires each contain 10 questions. You are invited
to complete these questionnaires three times; once prior to APS smart
meter installation, and again now as smart meters are being installed
and finally after installation is complete.
