Radiation Expert Speaks To Wi-Fi Concerns

Aug 7, 2018

Smart meters are being installed in place of the old analog "wheel" meters in the region by Pacific Power.  But not without a fight, in some cases. 

There's a particularly sharp reaction to the meters and their wireless communication features, plus concerns about possible incendiary properties. 

We sought out a medical expert who knows something about Wi-Fi and whether it has carcinogenic properties.  Dr. Steven Seung is a radiation oncologist with Providence Cancer Institute in Portland. 

He visits to answer our questions about whether Wi-Fi--from meters or our own devices--should be a cause for concern.
