Not true. In 2014, a Royal Society of Canada report concluded that the limits set by Health Canada were appropriate, given the state of scientific knowledge to date. Furthermore, since 2015, the Canadian guidelines have been stricter than the recommendations of the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection and those of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission. Also keep in mind that the level of radiofrequency emissions from meters is 55,000 times lower than the Canadian standard.
Although next-generation meters emit RF energy intermittently many times a day, for a few milliseconds each time, the total is less than 90 seconds a day.
