I am most concerned that Smart Meters do not appear to have been tested and certified as being safe for human use.

The microwave pulses they generate appear, to me, massively to exceed the safe levels as determined by the EPA and as such they are not suitable for human use.

I urge that the use of the current crop of Smart Meters is outlawed until they are either proved safe or a new generation of meters is introduced that conforms to existing safe levels.

However, from past experience, I think we need to take all “safe” levels with a pinch of salt. I’d like to see meters with zero microwave output.
