Relation Between Suicide and the Electromagnetic Field of Overhead Power Lines

M Reichmanis et al. Physiol Chem Phys. .

Abstract

Laboratory studies have shown that electromagnetic fields similar to those from high-voltage transmission lines can produce biological effects. Surveys of the actual effects of such lines on exposed individuals usually have been hampered by complicating factors tending to blur the data. By means of a new approach, however, correlation has been established between the presence of transmission-line fields and the occurrence of suicides in part of the Midlands of England.
