High voltage wires, headache, depression

Several recent studies have suggested that high voltage lines may be associated with various health problems. A study from Britain shows a relationship between overhead high voltage lines and headaches and depressive episodes. A seven-year study carried out by the New York State Power Line Project suggested that power lines may adversely affect adult learning, and several researchers are investigating a possible connection between power line exposure and cancer.
