LIVING near high-voltage power cables does not increase the risk of cancer, researchers from the Netherlands have concluded. Their study, reported in the International Journal of Epidemiology, looked at two communities living on the outskirts of Maastricht, where several high-voltage power cables cross the area. It found no difference in cancer mortality rates between those who had lived within a 100m radius of power lines for five years and those who lived farther away.
