Conflict of Interest scandal: Sir Richard Adams has deep ties to Smart-Meter industries
United Kingdom Created: 21 Jan 2015
Following an investigation it was revealed that Sir Richard Adams has an undeclared conflict of interest. It is a big scandal to continue as usual when Mr. Adams is actively acting to turn this decision against the European population.
Regarding others who may have conflicts as well, it is expected from the EU members to demand having a process that is free from foreign interests.

On the other hand, the Council of Europe recognized electrohypersensitivity in May 2011, on the basis of Dr. Dominique Belpomme's work. Dr. Belpomme, president of Association for Research on Treatment Against Cancer, examined clinically more than 1,000 electrohypersensitivity (EHS) – self reported patients. He concluded that these are real sick persons who are in a pre-Alzheimer’s state. http://mieuxprevenir.blogspot.ch/2014/06/interview-with-dr-dominique-belpomme-by.html

Best wishes,
