A Michigan utility has constructed a high-voltage transmission line in the front yard of the home of a family near West Branch, Michigan. The family and the entire Ogemaw County Board of Commissioners are objecting to placement of a transmission line and substation next to the family's home. EMF Power Line Case Study. 0 Comments The area is in close proximity to high voltage overhead power lines. The survey and report were done by Stuart Bagley, MS, CIH, CSP of EMF Testing USA. The results indicated that there were only a few instances of exceeding of other states’ guidelines (The State of Illinois does not have guidelines.   4. Earth the power lines. When power cables are earthed, the EMF will be blocked. Electric fields from underground power lines will be firstly absorbed by the earth that is above the cable. Hence, the EMF that will escape from earth will be minimal and likely harmless by the time it travels into homes, cars or offices. Notably, burying power lines is very costly.

His study linked power lines to leukaemia. Henshaw says they also cause skin cancer, lung cancer, depression and increased incidents of suicide. In other research carried out at Oxford University, it was discovered that children who had lived within m of high voltage lines at birth had a 70% higher risk of leukaemia than those meters or more away. What distance from power lines is considered safe in the Chicago area? Recent studies indicate health problems where the distance is in the to yard range. – according to a study published in the British Medical Journal, babies who live near high-voltage power lines are almost twice as likely as others to develop leukemia during childhood And yet despite this evidence people are still being subjected to EMFs from power lines which are installed too close to . STUDY OF ELECTRIC AND MAGNETIC FIELD STRENGTHS General The post-construction EMF levels for the CVE kV interconnection transmission lines were calculated using PLS-CADD, Version 9 Software Program. The softwareis developed by Power Line, Inc., Madison, Wisconsin, and is capable of performing overhead transmission line EMF calculations.

Governments and industry say that overhead power lines, substations, smart meters, cell phones, cordless phones, cell phone towers, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth devices, baby monitors, etc., are SAFE! But non-industry scientists, globally, say that the non-thermal EMF radiation from these technologies is a major CAUSE of today’s cancers and disease.

Sohrabi MR et al. (): Living near overhead high voltage transmission power lines as a risk factor for childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia: a case-control study. Rahman HIA et al. (): A case-control study on the association between environmental factors and the occurrence of acute leukemia among children in Klang Valley, Malaysia. Studies have examined associations of these cancers with living near power lines, with magnetic fields in the home, and with exposure of parents to high levels of magnetic fields in the workplace. No consistent evidence for an association between any source of non-ionizing EMF and cancer .
