This page will be rewritten in a few months.
In the meantime, please go to my webpage about a brand new smart meter survey: Smart Meter Health Effects Survey
SMART METER HEALTH EFFECTS SURVEY: If you feel your health has been affected by smart meters, we request your immediate help in studying these effects. Follow the link below for more information and to participate in our 15 minute confidential survey on this subject.
If you submit your survey by December 20, we will be able to use your data in the precedent-setting Maine, USA investigation into the safety of smart meters. Later submissions may be useful in other legal and regulatory proceedings. We welcome responses from all over the world. This survey is sponsored by the Maine Coalition to Stop Smart Meters and www.conradbiologic.com

and possibly New Mexico (but reported to be not completely EMF free):

This article: "EHS: Fact or Fiction" (they do not mention smart meters; it was published a year ago) is in some ways is a good article, but to make it appear "balanced" or to get it through peer review they hedge and distort in places, which can be misleading and changes the truth a bit. They could have done better by entitling it The Reality of EHS and following through more directly. I also take issue with the universality and accuracy of some of their theories of cause and cure.
