Childhood Leukemia Near HV Power LInes

“Childhood Leukemia Close to High-Voltage Power LInes —The Geocap Study, 2002-2007,” British Journal of Cancer, posted online April 4, 2013, by a team led by Jacqueline Clavel of INSERM in Paris.

This new French study supports "the hypothesis that living <50 m from a 225 or 400 kV high-voltage overhead power line may be associated with an increased incidence of childhood acute leukemia."
