In this project we examined the current research existing on the effect of EM radiation and human illnesses. It was found by our investigation that the upper bound on radiations is 833 mG and there is an associated but contentious risk between this level and certain types of cancer. In our study we explored the level of EM radiation that is ambient in Orange County and San Diego and verified its conformity with the regulated standards.
In this study, we reviewed technical literature relevant to the issue of magnetic fields from power transmission lines and their effects on human health. In particular, we explored the oft-repeated claim that these magnetic fields cause leukemia in children. We found that the evidence for a link between cancer and magnetic fields is contentious and sometimes contradictory at low levels as emitted from power lines.
In addition, we took our own independent measurements. Within the scope of our measurements we found the fields to be within their published measurements and within international professional standards.
Finally, we began to look into the feasibility of utilizing these magnetic fields for the benefit of consumers based on the fundamental equations of electromagnetic theory. It is the recommendation of this report to explore these theories to achieve practical and affordable methods for harvesting energy for public consumption.
