Brodeur, a New Yorker writer, documents several cases showing that exposure to electromagnetic fields from electric power lines causes brain cancer, leukemia, tumors, and lymphoma, among other diseases. Unfortunately, many children are affected since power lines are often located near schools. Brodeur reveals how government officials were slow to take action after an Environmental Protection Agency report implicated magnetic fields as the probable cause of illness in an epidemiological study. Utility companies challenged its conclusion by insisting that further research be done to prove the connection. Brodeur convinces readers that industry and government are trying to downplay the situation. His book's only flaw is the lack of a bibliography for those wanting to pursue the subject further.
