There has been controversy over power line radiation and its effect on human health for at least 40 years. This is not because evidence is lacking.
Living by power lines has been known to increase the risk of leukemia and other cancers since 1979, when convincing evidence was first published by Werthimer and Leeper .
Since then, dozens of published papers have found links between living near power line electromagnetic radiation and a range of health woes including brain cancer and leukemia (especially affecting children), breast cancer, birth defects and reproductive problems, decreased libido, fatigue, depression, blood diseases, hormonal imbalances, heart disease, sleeping disorders and many others.
Richard Box of Bristol University in Bristol, England put several hundred fluorescent light tubes in the ground (not connected to any power source) under some high tension wires in a field east of Bath, England. In the daylight, it looks like nothing is happening, but when it gets dark, it is clear that all of the tubes are glowing as a result of the “waste emission or EMF’s” coming from the overhead wires.
“This is the best evidence seen of what this kind of energy might be doing to those who live under or even near such sources of electricity!”
