1/21/14 Worcester City Council Massachusetts and Worcester residents presented 'smart' meter and infrastructure concerns to the Worcester City Council at the 1/21/14 meeting. Consumer activists informed the City Council, Mayor and Manager that radiofrequencies have been classified as a Class 2B possible human carcinogen by the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer, including those emitted by smart meters, while the DPU and utilities continue to refer to outdated health data. A Worcester resident already disabled by Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity spoke, and presented data about the health challenge, which has been overlooked by smart metering plans. Residents requested an investigation into the outreach budget expenditures, action on outstanding Council orders concerning adverse health impacts, the formation of a citizen's advisory committee, and training for area health care providers in the recognition and treatment of microwave illness. Privacy and security issues were also discussed.
