Health concerns
• So-called 'smart' devices/appliances fairly continuously emit toxic radio frequency (RF) radiation (EMR)
• Thousands of scientific studies show that RF EMR has adverse biological effects
• Impacts mood, fatigue, sleep disorders, concentration, cardiovascular, and cancer
• Public Health England (PHE) have essentially abdicated their responsibility in this area
• The World Health Organisation (WHO) and various other bodies are starting to acknowledge risk

Other issues to consider
• Appliance use data will be used to price in such a way as to control our behaviour
• The ‘smart home’ and ‘internet of things’ (IoT) pose data profiling, privacy, and security issues
• Smart networks have been hacked many times, with consumer data available on black market
