Child leukaemia link to power lines

WARNING!  EMF radiation from this PC depletes your bioenergy! Get protection for your safety!

Your body has an energy signalling system that's vital for its proper function. See Energy Systems.  You need to protect it!
Don't exposure yourself to EMFs without protection. You wouldn't expose yourself to the sun for hours - you'd get skin cancer soon enough.  EMF is invisible and every day EMF stress affects your body putting your health at risk; a wide range of symptoms result. Just read What Doctors warnEMF radiation depletes bioenergy, compromising your immune system! There is a cumulative effect. Take advantage of my website to find out more about these modern day hazards.
An amazing new protection that really works is now available with GIA Wellness. You can avoid adverse health risks and enjoy a New Generation of Wellness in an increasingly electropolluted world. Electropollution is a real environmental toxin.

Especially don't expose your child to EMFs. They have a lifetime more to bear this and the full extent of risks is not yet known!

Fears over child leukaemia link to power lines

The New Zealand Herald
NEWS       Friday June 03, 2005          By Jeremy Laurance 

Public concern about the safety of high voltage power lines will be heightened today by a UK study showing children living within 200 metres of the overhead electricity cables have a 70 per cent increased risk of developing leukaemia.

The study, involving almost 10,000 cases over 33 years, found the effect was small but statistically significant.
There was also an effect on children living between 200 and 600 metres from the power lines who had a 23 per cent increased risk of leukaemia.

Proximity to overhead lines may
 account for 5 of the 400-420 cases
of childhood leukaemia
in England and Wales each year.

Professor John Toy, the medical director of Cancer Research UK, said: "People who live or have lived near power lines need not panic about this research.

"The triggers that cause childhood leukaemia are most likely a random course of events over which a parent has no control," he added.

The researchers, led by Gerald Draper of the Childhood Cancer Research Group at the University of Oxford, were unable to offer any explanation for their findings, published in today's British Medical Journal.

They ruled out electro-magnetic fields produced by the power lines as a cause as they would be too small to have any effect at a distance of 200 to 600 metres.

About one child in 2000 develops leukaemia before the age of 15 and about 4% of the population in the UK live within 600 metres of power lines.

Overall, the researchers estimate that proximity to the overhead cables may account for five of the 400-420 cases of childhood leukaemia occurring in England and Wales each year.

Dr Draper said: "These results are very surprising.  Although previous studies have suggested some increase [in the risk of leukaemia] you have to be much nearer [within 60m].  No one would expect an effect at this distance.

"We don't think this is a direct effect of the magnetic field at 200 to 600 metres.  There might be some other indirect, remote mechanism that we don't understand and we can't measure.  Or the findings might be due to chance."

It was possible some characteristic of the populations who lived near the power lines, or of the area where they were situated, could account for the increase in leukaemia.  The disease is 10% more common in better-off families and varies by geographical area.

John Swanson, scientific adviser to National Grid Transco and a co-author of the study, said: "The findings strongly suggest something is happening but leave open what that something is.  I personally tend to the view that it is some characteristic of the populations that the power lines pass through."

Another hypothesis is that pollutants in the air around power lines could become electrically charged, making them more likely to lodge in the lungs.

Dr Swanson said the failure of the UK Childhood Cancer Study to find any effect of power lines could be because it was too small.

Both authors said that there were no grounds for taking any action such as moving house on the basis of their results.

Dr Draper said the study, begun in 1997, was incomplete because the researchers had not measured the size of the magnetic field generated by the power lines and compared it with that from other sources.

Dr Draper said that he and his fellow researchers had decided to publish early after an environmental group accused them of suppressing the findings and leaked some details of the research last year.

An editorial in the BMJ says magnetic fields generated by Britain's 4500 miles of power lines are very weak, amounting to 1 per cent of the Earth's magnetic field "which affects all of us all the time.  So it would be surprising if they caused leukaemia," it adds.


[TL -  Findings like this shouldn't surprise anyone given the increasing findings of a real biological effect on humans.  There is a lot of information about the adverse effects real people are experiencing from alternating current electric and magnetic fields.  Campbell Live, TV3 reported mid 2006 on 8 people who have died from cancer in one part of Auckland alone where they had been living under high voltage power lines.]


You have a sophisticated body electronics system that is vital to its function.  So don't allow yourself to be exposed to health risks invisibly imposed by EMF radiation from electric & magnetic fields and pulsed microwave transmission signals, which are at frequencies that disrupt your brain and cellular functions.  Cellphone and cordless phone use does carry well-established risks!  EMF stress occurs with all other electric and electronic devices, too.  There are adverse health effects - see What Doctors Warn.  Scientific studies have shown that EMF exposure has a cumulative effect, increasing over time.   Be sure to reduce the risks for your children who face a lifetime of exposure and those with poorer health conditions, they are especially at risk.  For an appreciation of this start at Child Risks.

Depletion of your body's bioenergy causes a lowered energetic capability, at a fundamental atomic level.  See Atoms & EMF.  Disturbance of it's inherent bioenergetic system results in disruptions to cellular functions and a compromised immune system.  Start at Energy Systems.  Quite simply, your body systems are no longer able to work in the way that they would if such destructive interference from EMR was not imposed on you.  To see how human energies are affected by common electronic devices see bioenergy test charts showing patterns typical of that experienced by everyone from Human Tests.

If you can't understand why the authorities are allowing you to be exposed to such risks, start at my Research page.  So-called "safety" regulations only consider thermal (tissue heating) effects, but frighteningly disregard low frequency biological effects. Strong vested interests resist change to this in spite of mounting evidence.  For your own health and safety, and sustainable wellness, you need to adopt the Precautionary Principle with some urgency to avoid the risks of the invisible hazard of EMR that do compromise your health.  You can now make use of the amazing new GIA Wellness protection available to reduce the effects of EMR, and have the chance to enjoy sustainable wellness.  See GIA Wellness Protection Products.
