In brief: A Shocking Result

I assume you don't mean direct exposure, so i will address high powered electromagnetic field exposures.
These types of exposure (by high tension power lines) could possibly pose a health risk, but there is little research to support this. In fact, low dose chronic exposures from cell phones have been under scrutiny lately by the fcc. We just don't know if such exposures contribute to illness.
