"Report: Smart Meters Are Bad for Your Health"

Does the radio frequency electromagnetic radiation emitted by utility company 'smart meters' cause health problems in some individuals? The answers may not be as clear as utilities often claim.

"Let’s start out by noting that the field of 'environmental medicine/clinical ecology' has its critics, and that it’s not recognized as a medical specialty by the American Board of Medical Specialties.

That said, the battle over the safety of smart meters ratcheted up a notch last week, after the American Academy of Environmental Medicine released a report titled “Electromagnetic and Radiofrequency Fields Effect on Human Health” — calling for “an immediate caution on Smart Meter installation due to potentially harmful RF (radiofrequency) exposure” and “accommodation for health considerations regarding EMF (electromagnetic field) and RF exposure, including exposure to wireless Smart Meter technology.”"
