Power lines
PUBLISHED IN: HEALTH PHYS 118(5):533–542; 2020 Abstract—Sources of low-frequency fields are widely found in modern society. All wires or devices carrying or using electricity generate extremely low frequency (ELF) electric fields (EFs) and magnetic fields (MFs), but they decline rapidly with distance to the source. High magnetic flux densities are usually found in the vicinity...

PLoS One. 2019 Oct 10;14(10):e0223614. doi: 10.1371/journal.pone.0223614. eCollection 2019 Abstract Honey bees, Apis mellifera, are a globally significant pollinator species and are currently in decline, with losses attributed to an array of interacting environmental stressors. Extremely low frequency electromagnetic fields (ELF EMFs) are a lesser-known abiotic environmental factor that are emitted from a variety of anthropogenic...

An article in the Wall Street Journal (Aug. 15, 2018) points to a recent study in the Journal of Real Estate Research: 1. Vacant lots adjacent to high-voltage transmission lines sell for 45% less than equivalent lots not located near transmission lines. 2. Non-adjacent lots still located within 1,000 feet of transmission lines sell at...

Exposure to extremely low frequency electromagnetic fields alters the behaviour, physiology and stress protein levels of desert locusts http://www.nature.com/articles/srep36413?WT.feed_name=subjects_neuroscience It would also be pertinent to now consider how these high levels of EMF might impact on other insects that provide valuable ecosystems services such as key pollinators (honey bees) whose cognitive abilities are crucial in...
