"We're talking about an absolute extra risk of miscarriage

power industry has
always argued that even if there was an increased risk of
leukaemias, they are still very rare, and so it wasn't a public
matter. This is a much bigger can of worms." Henshaw
believes that EMFs
are responsible for skin cancers, lung cancers, depression

the NRPB should
follow the examples of Switzerland and Sweden in reducing
safe exposure levels. The doubling of childhood leukaemias
was seen at
levels of 0.4 millionths of a Tesla (0.4 microTesla). The
safe limit is
set at 4,000 times that, at 1600 microTesla. Four years ago,
dropped the maximum to just 1 microTesla. To drop the limits
dramatically, Henshaw comments, "would be as irrelevant
as reducing the
speed limit on the motorway from 1,000mph to 500mph".
He also believes
that houses should no longer be built near power lines or

it is vital to be sure that the role played by EMFs is genuine.
The NRPB has appointed Sir Richard Doll, the epidemiologist

NRPB believes that there is "(no) substantial evidence
of increased risk
