Re: EMF sensitivity could be real.

"Absolutely agree with this What I dsagree with is that anecdotal evidence with no proposed mechanism to back it up, or experimental evidence on how to reproduce it is not a theory. It's hearsay."

I agree. But, to play devils advocate for a moment, considering the many, many smart meters installed, and the tiny, tiny numbers of people claiming a deleterious effect from them, reproducibility under controlled conditions would be a nightmare. It could be something as weird as a reflected EMF wave interacting with the original in a specific place in the house. There are so many variables and so few data points that it'll be nigh on impossible to prove anything other than there doesn't seem to be any effect when testing for it.
