A bit more detail from page 4 of the report: KEY REPORT FINDINGS Wireless smart meters, when installed and properly maintained, result in much smaller levels of radio frequency (RF) exposure than many existing common household electronic devices, particularly cell phones and microwave ovens. The current FCC standard provides an adequate factor of safety against known thermally induced health impacts of existing common household electronic devices and smart meters. To date, scientific studies have not identified or confirmed negative health effects from potential non-thermal impacts of RF emissions such as those produced by existing common household electronic devices and smart meters. Not enough is currently known about potential non-thermal impacts of radio frequency emissions to identify or recommend additional standards for such impacts BTW the table on the next page is interesting - showing that the RF exposure from a cell phone (because it is held so close to the body) presents on something like 25 times the exposure of smart meters.
