"In the Department of Health,
we've been answering questions about the dangers by telling people to avoid
fields at the level of 3 mG. The utilities recently complained to the governor's
office about it and the governor has tried to make us stop saying this
when people call. But we feel strongly that we can't just pass the buck
the way they do. After all, we're responsible for the public health."
"In all my years of looking at
chemicals, I have never seen a set of
"Based on the data base we have
right now, I think the probability of hazards to human health from exposure
to EMFs is high. It has been pretty well accepted by most scientists now....
The issue is not whether there is biological effects or possible harm,
but at what level and what duration of exposure - that question we have
"We will proceed on the assumption
that there is a connection between exposure to lower frequency magnetic
fields and cancer, in particular, childhood cancer."
"From available epidemiological
and laboratory data, it appears both prudent and responsible to set limits
on permissable future [EMF] exposures."
"As the methods of assessing
exposure were refined, we found that the association between magnetic fields
and the risk of developing childhood leukemia became stronger, particularly
in children diagnosed at a younger age"
