De geplande hoogspanningslijn tussen
Beverwijk, Zoetermeer en Wateringen zorgt voor commotie onder omwonenden. Mensen zijn bang
dat de nieuwe zogenoemde 380-kV-lijn schadelijk is voor de gezondheid. Ze hebben bezwaar
aangetekend tegen de hoogspanningslijn; vandaag is de eerste van drie zittingsdagen bij de
Raad van State.

Study finds possible link between
cancer and power lines
It is something that has been debated
for years; whether living next to high-voltage power lines can lead to cancer. Now an
Australian study returns what could be the best evidence yet that it can. Scientists from
the University of Tasmania looked at more than 850 patients with cancer. "They
discovered that people who lived within 300 metres of a powerline had a three-fold
increase in their risk," he said.
A documentary that explores the controversy
behind power lines and the intense debate in the last 40 years between homeowners,
environmentalists, journalists, scientists and power line companies. A growing body of
scientific evidence suggests that invisible electro magnetic fields (EMFs) created by
power lines are linked to cancers and other serious health problems. On the other hand,
there are reports of reviews that show no consistent, significant link between cancer and
power line fields. What are the facts?
A power line soon near you
500kV dual circuit power lines are coming
to a neighbourhood near you... 200' towers and 150' wide, they're sure to put a smile on
every kid's face! I suppose we could bury them like they do in dozens of other countries
around the world. But, no, that's just not right for Alberta. Our government knows what's
best for our kids so smile and say hello to your future.
Wonen bij hoogspanning verdubbelt
kans op Alzheimer
Hoogspanningskabels in de buurt van
woonhuizen kunnen volgens onderzoekers van deuniversiteit van Bern de kans op
Alzheimer vergroten. Dat heeft de universiteit vrijdag bekendgemaakt.
Childhood leukemia and magnetic
fields in Japan: a case-control study of childhood leukemia and residential
power-frequency magnetic fields in Japan.
Most of the leukemia cases in the
highest exposure category had MF levels far above 0.4 microT. Our results provided
additional evidence that high MF exposure was associated with a higher risk of childhood
leukemia, particularly of ALL.
Acute childhood leukemias and
exposure to magnetic fields generated by high voltage overhead power lines - a risk factor
More children in developing countries
like Iran live close to very high voltage lines, and they experience relatively more
harmful effects from the Magnetic Fields, in comparison with children in developed
countries. Residence near very high voltage overhead power lines, in distances < or =
500 meters, and Magnetic Fields >0.45 microT, should be considered a risk factor for
the pathogenesis of acute leukaemias in children.
Although a link between
childhood cancer and power lines has been suggested by previous studies, it has only been
associated with high exposure those living within about 60 m of an overhead power
to electric power transmission lines and risk of lymphoproliferative and
myeloproliferative disorders: a case-control study.
that this study has limitations, the results raise the possibility that prolonged
residence close to high-voltage power lines, especially early in life, may increase the
risk of the development of MPD and LPD later.
Residential and occupational
exposures to 50-Hz magnetic fields and breast cancer in women: a population-based study.
Women with the highest occupational
exposure had an odds ratio of 1.13 (95% CI: 0.91, 1.40) when compared with those unexposed
at work. The findings suggest an association between exposure to magnetic fields and
breast cancer in women.
