Buying or Living Near Power Lines
If you are considering buying near high voltage power lines or currently live in a house near a power corridor and need to know whether it’s safe or not, you’re in the right place.
Despite under-informed naysayers, the fact is, high levels of Electric and Magnetic fields are generated by the power lines and studies are coming in to indicate long term proximity to power lines can cause cancer, childhood leukemia and other diseases.
EMF radiation is all around us
Electric and magnetic fields are generated wherever electricity is used – they are around us all the time in today’s world. Overhead power lines are one source but they are only one part of the picture. The wiring in your dream home may also be generating high levels of magnetic and electric radiation. The best solution is to have a professional test the home or condo with professional meters and interpret the results against the latest EMF research and guidelines.
What sort of overhead line is near me and how close is too close?
Overhead lines range from lower-voltage lines (“distribution lines”) on wood poles to higher-voltage lines (“transmission lines”) on lattice steel towers. Dangerous levels of magnetic and electric radiation could exist at distances of 200 m to 800 meters. If in doubt, have us come out and do a measurement. Then you will know for sure!
