There is now no dispute: electromagnetic fields (EMFs) harm our health. WDDTY has assembled the latest evidence that electrical and magnetic fields may be behind cases of ongoing puzzling illnesses like Alzheimer's , amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and cancer. But the most shocking aspect of the EMF story is that it ever saw the light of day. The real story here is not that power lines are risky, but that the guardians of our health have so much interest invested in keeping that information from us.
When Bristol Professor Denis Henshaw began uncovering the first significant evidence of a link between power lines and childhood cancer, the UK's National Radiological Protection Board (NRPB) referred to such evidence as implausible and purely speculative.
