EMFs (EMR) (electromagnetic fields, electromagnetic radiation)

Re: EMFs (EMR) (electromagnetic fields, electromagnetic radiation):
(1) What information would convince you that EMFs are not harmful, even in places of work around which there are many power lines, computers, transmitters, appliances, and other electrical devices? (2) Obviously you haven't been convinced that EMFs are safe, but what is the most convincing evidence you've heard that they may be safe and that even in the highest-EMF-level working conditions, they do not present dangers to health?

Where I left it off it had been proven beyond doubt to be associated with childhood leukemia. That study was designed to study exactly that and nothing but that and involved an epidemiological study of children living and sleeping close to high power lines just outside their homes. As to what would convince me EMFs are totally safe across the board - given that study: nothing. What would convince me that ordinary exposure is safe - a large scale well designed study of the incidence of illness in two otherwise identical populations, one exposed and the other not exposed at all. There would be a few problems in designing and carrying out such a study. Until that happens, I will assume EMFs present some hazards, even in low dose, and avoid them as best I can.
