My health under fire from electro waves

I suffer from the side- effects of electromagnetic waves (EMW).

I moved into a house which needed restoration in 2018.

I was so fed-up receiving the “abusive” letters that Enedis sent regarding a Linky meter/installation that I agreed to have one installed.

Now my doctor is concerned about the effect it is having on my health, yet Enedis have ignored this in letters I have sent to them.

The installation of 5G telephone masts, combined with Linky and other forms of electrical machines/equipment being installed/approved by the French government is appalling.

Your article in your August edition on 5G masts mentioned that the Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health and Safety will continue to study the effects from exposure to the masts but I won’t be holding my breath for anything to be done about it.

I wish to put on record my grave concern about the Linky meter. My meter is directly beneath my bedroom.

I’m a 75-year-old widow living on a mountain in an isolated and unpolluted spot of beautiful France and will oppose this menace as long as I’m strong enough to do so.

Surely I should have a say in what is put in my own house.

Diane Wilmarsh, Bourgogne-Franche-Comté
