Children living close to high voltage overhead power lines at birth could be at an increased risk of leukaemia Children living close to high voltage overhead power lines at birth could be at an increased threat of leukaemia, finds a large study in this week’s BMJ. However the authors emphasise that these results may be due to chance and further research is required to discover out whether there really is a link. About one child in 2000 develops leukaemia prior to the age of 15 years problems due to infertility .
