A recent peer review of the medical literature on the subject has recently been completed. Dr. McCunney provided a Webinar on the peer-review findings and answered questions on this issue. Additionally, Lawrence Mott, chairman of Renewable Energy Vermont, addressed how this issue can be effectively addressed at public meetings and with public officials.
