Abstract: Attributing any sort of cancer or other adverse health effects to electric power transmission lines and transormer substations ignores physical principles. It overlooks the great increase in consumption of electric power, and therefore in exposure to electromagnetic fields of all sorts, that has occurred in the United States over the past hundred years without a corresponding cancer epidemic. Fields induced in the body from power lines and appliances are amall compared to unavoidable fields present at all times. Fanciful concepts of resonance with the Earth's magnetic field make no sense physically, and the early reports that aroused public concern were ststistically weak.
