Living Near Power Lines: Is it Dangerous?
If you’re living near power lines, it’s a good idea to educate yourself about the health risks associated with prolonged exposure to them. Doing your own independent research is important in this process because there are conflicting opinions in the science world about the safety of living by electrical lines. Looking at every angle available will help you to have the fullest view. One critical thing to keep in mind during this process is that one side of science only deems electromagnetic fields (EMFs) hazardous when there is the actual heating of tissue involved. The other side, that strongly advocates for caution on this issue, understands the complexities of the human body, and how receptive we all are to outside interference. This side of science has shown that we have reason to be concerned for our health if we live in close proximity to either high or low voltage powerlines.
