Default Electromagetic Fields

I'm looking to buy a house and have found a couple that have power lines in the vicinity. Besides the fact that they are an eye sore, I heard something about how they can cause cell damage and ultimately cancer.

After some googling I found these saying it's no big deal:

http://www.quackwatch.org/01Quackery...opics/emf.html

And these which say it might give your kids Leukemia

http://www.lessemf.com/emf-news.html

Should I throw those houses off the list, or chill out?

Thanks.

If I had the choice I would avoid them.

I vote avoid. Also try to distance yourself from cell phone towers if possible.

Never in the history of humankind have we been exposed to as much radiation of so many types at the levels of intensity that we are now.

Think of the $$ involved in the cellular phone and wireless industries. Industry and normal people would almost rather live in denial than accept the possibility that these could be harmful.
