A car showroom salesman told me that 15 minutes in a SMART car and the driver is sitting in the equivalent of a microwave being gently fried.
I got the metaphor but thought he was being a bit heavy. I decided to investigate further.
We’ve all read that SMART Cars offer a multitude of benefits for users as well as the environment – there’s improved safety, reduced environmental impact, enhanced connectivity leading to improved traffic flow, their ability to communicate with other SMART Cars and with infrastructures such as traffic lights and road sensors.
These are designed to reduce travel times and improve the overall driving experience.
Yet there are some caveats we’re not told about; most car salesmen may not even know about them.
What isn’t mentioned is the increased exposure to harmful ElectroMagnetic Fields (EMF). Now I’m the first to admit that there are petrol/diesel cars manufactured today that creep into this high EMF bracket too, but here I’m writing about all SMART cars.
The powerful lithium-ion SMART Car batteries emit low-frequency radiation and substantial amounts of dirty electricity.
Harmful you wonder? Research has focused on biological effects such as possible carcinogenic, reproductive and neurological damage.
What worries me is that in SMART vehicles these batteries are positioned directly under the driver’s seat.
Radiofrequencies (in cars or otherwise) are damaging to all living cells and thus a public health threat. One study found that ‘smart devices’ can interfere with pacemakers. “Safety evaluation of smart scales, smart watches and smart rings with bioimpedance technology shows evidence of potential interference in cardiac implantable electronic devices.”
In addition many SMART Cars have been equipped with Bluetooth connections for cell phones, crash prevention radars, back up cameras, and even provide WiFi hot spots. All of these ‘features’ emit harmful radiation.
I don’t want to sound alarmist but on another level altogether SMART Cars are not immune to potential cyber threats. Hacking of these electronic devices could result in malicious access to personal information or even remote control of the vehicle.
If you’re going to drive a SMART Car do it SAFELY. If you’re buying one:
- Look for cars with fewer electronic features installed. It may appear old-fashioned, but more devices means more radiation.
- Turn off Bluetooth although in newer cars this may not be an option. They emit radio frequency radiation even when disabled unless you completely disconnect the devices from your car.
- Go for a simple music system. The larger the speakers, the more powerful the EMFs.
- GPS seems to be a necessity these days, but they emit alarming levels of radiation. If you’re reasonably familiar with a route, there’s no need to use your GPS as well.
- LCD screens can be a distraction to the driver; they too emit high levels of radiation.
- If possible avoid remote controlled door locking systems or fuel openers to minimize car radiation levels.

Get yourself a ScreenFloww®
They’re designed for TV’s, laptops, computers, tablets, smartphones (when at home). Place the Screenfloww® near any screen to create a field of natural frequencies. It can either be permanent of moved between your TV , your computers or your SMART Car as needed.
If you drive a SMART Car – place the Screenfloww® under the central dashboard screen, with another somewhere in the back if you’re travelling on longer road trips with family.
These are available on the Sana Shop site. Click on EMF Protection and drop down to ScreenFloww. There’s a worthwhile sale on right now.
Our current safety standards only protect us from thermal (burning effects) but not pre-thermal biological effects. Electromagnetic illness has become a pandemic you do NOT want to suffer from.
Those LITHIUM BATTERIES: Something to think about!!
I’m told it burns around 1000 litres of fuel in 12 hours, moves around 250 tons of dirt to remove materials needed to make ONE Tesla battery.
To make any battery, you need to process:
– 12 tons of lithium seal
– 15 tons of ore for cobalt
– 3 tons of ore for nickel,
– 12 ton ore for copper
And shifting 250 tonnes of crust.
For only – one – battery:
– 12 kg of Lithium
– 30 kgs of Nickel
– 22 kg Eating
– 15 kg of cobalt
– 100 kg of copper
– 200 kg aluminum, steel and plastic
And people believe in “zero emissions” when they drive their electric car.
I’m not 100% sure about those stats above but when I found out how bad for the environment lithium batteries are I couldn’t believe it. The government can and will bank on people’s ignorance every time. It’s beyond astonishing.

A Valuable Take On Electric Cars, From ‘Voice Of The Majority’:
“As an engineer, I love electric vehicle technology. However, I have been troubled by the fact that the electrical energy to keep the batteries charged has to come from the grid; and that means, more power generation and a huge increase in the distribution infrastructure. Whether generated from coal, gas, oil, wind or sun, installed generation capacity is limited.
“IF ELECTRIC CARS DO NOT USE GASOLINE, THEY WILL NOT BE PAYING A GASOLINE TAX ON EVERY GALLON SOLD FOR AUTOMOBILES; WHICH WAS ENACTED TO MAINTAIN OUR ROADS AND BRIDGES. THEY WILL USE THE ROADS, BUT WILL NOT PAY FOR THEIR MAINTENANCE!
“Ever since the advent of electric cars, all you’ve ever heard about is the mpg, in terms of gasoline, with nary a mention of the cost of electricity to run it.
“Electricity has to be one of the least efficient ways to power things. Somebody has finally put engineering and math to paper:
If you really intend to adopt electric vehicles, you will face certain realities. I.E., a home-charging system for a Tesla requires 75 amp service. The average house is equipped with 100 amp service.
On a small street (approximately 25 homes), the electrical infrastructure would be unable to carry more than three houses with a single Tesla each. For even half the homes to have electric vehicles, the system would be wildly over-loaded.
This – THIS! – is the elephant in the room with electric vehicles! Our residential infrastructure cannot bear the load. So, as our ‘genius’ elected officials promote this nonsense, not only are we being urged to buy these things, and replace our reliable & cheap generating systems with expensive new windmills and/or solar cells, we will also have to renovate our entire delivery system! This later ‘investment will not be revealed, until we’re so far down this deadend road, that it will be presented with an ‘OOPS…!’ and a shrug!
“If you want to argue with a green person over cars that are eco-friendly, just read the following. Note: If you ARE a green person, read it anyway. It’s enlightening:
“[Eric] test drove the Chevy Volt, at the invitation of General Motors, and he writes, ‘For four days in a row, the fully charged battery lasted only 25 miles, before the Volt switched to the reserve gasoline engine.’ He calculated the car got 30 mpg including the 25 miles it ran on the battery. The range including the 9-gallon gas tank and the 16 kwh battery is approximately 270 miles.
“It will take 4.5 hours to drive 270 miles at 60 mph. Then, add 10 hours to charge the battery and you have a total trip time of 14.5 hours. In a typical road trip, your average speed (including charging time) would be 20 mph!
“According to General Motors, the Volt battery holds 16 kwh of electricity. It takes a full 10 hours to charge a drained battery. The cost for the electricity to charge the Volt is never mentioned, so I looked up what I pay for electricity.
“I pay approximately (and varies with amount used and the seasons) $1.16 per kwh. 16 kwh x $1.16 per kwh = $18.56 to charge the battery. $18.56 per charge divided by 25 miles = $0.74 per mile to operate the Volt using the battery. Compare this to a similar size car with a gasoline engine that gets only 32 mpg. $3.19 per gallon divided by 32 Mpg = $0.10 per mile!
“The gasoline powered car costs about $25,000, while the Volt costs $46,000 plus. So, the [government] wants loyal [citizens] not to do the math. But, simply pay twice as much for a car, that costs more than seven times as much to run, and takes three times longer to drive across the country!”
And if after reading that you’re still thinking of buying a SMART car, watch this clip before making any decisions.
And then there’s the tonnes of earth and litres of diesel needed to produce a single SMART Car battery, …..but that’s another story.
