  1. Depressive symptoms and headaches in relation to proximity of residence to an alternating-current transmission line right-of-way.

    Article - En anglais

    Electric power transmission lines have become objects of public controversy.

    Hypotheses have linked neurobehavioral effects to the electric and magnetic fields that these lines produce.

    The authors conducted a telephone interview survey in November 1987 to assess the prevalence of depressive symptoms and headache in relation to proximity of residence to an alternating-current transmission line in the United States.

    Proximity to the line, defined as residing on a property abutting the right-of-way or being able to see the towers from one's house or yard, was positively associated with a measure of depressive symptoms.

    The association was not explained by demographic variables associated with depression or by attitudes about power lines or other environmental issues.
