In brief: A Shocking Reality

At the present time there is no known medical side effects of exposure to electromagnetic fields.
They are around us all the time. There is a similar debate about cell phone use and the possible association with brain tumors - something not proven. Your greatest risk is direct contact with the high voltage line in an accidental situation. Fire and electrocution are your greatest risks.
