Substation

Hello All

My husband and I found a townhouse which ticks all the boxes however there is a electricity pole with a big box on the top of it. Not sure if it is a substation or not?? How can i find out if it is dangerous to your health?

We are signing the papers on wednesday so not sure if we should stick with it.

Help??

Hi

Yes it is probably a small substation.

How far is it from your house?

2 things - if it is more than say 10 meters then it will have no effect.

If closer then it may raise the EMF radiation in the nearest room.

Generally there is no problem.

If you are still worried check for EMF conbsultants who can come and do a reading - the cost is around 250 bucks.

BTW You want the inside of your house to have a EMF millagause reading of less that 2!

In my personal opinion don't take the risk. My brother-in-law died of non-hodgkins lyphoma and I'm sure it's because he had one of those mini subs on a pole just outside his house and for years he slept in the front bedroom just a few metres away.

On Four Corners recently this topic was covered.

Interesting reading, I've also read that wireless internet is a problem, we removed wireless from our home
