Caption: Electricity pylon. Power lines from an electricity pylon passing over a house. Power lines carry high voltage electricity from power stations. They generate low frequency electromagnetic fields, which some scientists believe are linked with increased incidences of the cancer leukaemia in children living nearby. One theory is that the field interacts with chemicals called free radicals within human cells. Another theory is that the field attracts radon, a naturally- occurring radioactive gas.
