I would stay away from any high voltage wires or Telephone towers etc. when renting or purchasing. Anything related to RF emissions close by is a no-no for us. We have rejected many sites that are too close to wires. We have had too many friends negatively impacted by that type of interference and have done too much reading on the subject to have it as part of our surroundings. Down the road it could impact resales as more and more of the general population become more aware of the impact. FYI here is a link with some info and one of the questions is "What is a safe distance?".

You're Welcome. I appreciate the fact that you are aware enough to ask the question! As more people become aware of what is going on around us, then the more chance there is that perhaps it will make a difference in the policies that are enacted that affect us all. So often the short term gain is so short sighted.......but don't get me going on that! I am grateful that the internet is so accessible for us and that we can get the info so easily. Hopefully the next generation will continue to seek the solutions to the EMF challenge.

FYI I have included a link to a researcher's site that I have talked to since before he had an internet site. I wear and use his products for EMF personal protection and can vouch for their effectiveness.

I have heard that people wanted to avoid overhead wires but had not read anything like the link before.

It sounds like something that COULD be a way for that company posting it to make money.

Sceptical is not always bad you know.

Always keep an open mind.

I think this area is up for debate and harm coming from high voltage wires has yet to be proven.

and you can be assured that when we first heard about the possibility of problems with the proliferation of EMF interference we were VERY skeptical. However, over the past 30+ years we have worked both personally and professionally with many many people in this field and even now we are still learning more and more daily about the effects of all these assaults on our human makeup. We even talk about being "off" or "not feeling ourself" or feeling ungrounded. All those feelings just indicate that our own EMF is being thrown off for some reason because we are all electro-magnetic beings. I think I better get off my soap box. I keep forgetting that I am not at work and it's not my job to educate especially when I haven't been asked! I apologize if I have offended anyone.

And I sincerely apologize if I have offended you. I think that there are enough people who are certain that high voltage wires do harm that it could impact the value of property and It would be wise to avoid those areas. Fortunately almost all areas that I have seen in TV have underground wires although ground is a conductor for electricity too.

There is much lately written about cell phones and brain cancer but nothing proven as far as I have read. I do have to go on record that I see absolutely no value in the "magnetic" bracelets that some folks wear. I feel strongly if I had ten of them on, I would NOT get a yard more distance with my driver.

But you are right. Our brains are electrical. Who knows what could harm them.

I see that you feel strongly about this subject and I will make sure to read as much as I can on it. I respect you and your views very much.

I have to agree with you. I didn't find the information there anywhere near as helpful as what I found when I previously researching this. My house is over 1/10th of a mile (just under two football fields away) and what I gathered from the searching is that the RF disapates quite significantly to a fraction of it's original level that it left me feeling comfortable with it. Or at least I haven't glowed in the dark yet! The Villages Florida
