We indulge in the luxury and convenience of having electricity every time we come home at night and turn on the lights. As nice as electricity is, there is always another side of the story.
In order for us to access this electricity, every residential area must have a transformer. This converts the electricity supplied by the power plant (6000-30000 volts) into the household alternating current we are able to use (110 – 400 volts AC). These transformers consist of: high-voltage components, transformer and low-voltage distribution. This reduction inevitably produces strong magnetic fields. Depending on the number of households and consumers, a stronger or weaker radiation output will exist.
The hidden danger in your neighborhood
About every 30 houses in a residential area has a transformer amongst them. A transformer can be recognised by the warning stickers and words like:
High Voltage! Danger!
Go for a walk in your neighborhood and find out where these transformers are located.
In large apartment buildings with many units, there is often a separate transformer for the entire building. This is usually installed in the underground basement or garage.
Many people are unaware of the danger.
Why are magnetic fields so problematic? The risk of blood disorders increase.
Humans have iron in their blood, which responds to the magnetic fields!
It has been repeatedly documented that there is an increase in leukaemia cases where strong magnetic fields are present. For example: transformers, electric railway, tram lines and power lines. In Volarlberg we had 5 cases of leukaemia in young children a few years back. Four of these originated in Montafon where three high-voltage power lines run through the valley and the houses were always in between…
Statistics from the GEOVITAL Academy regarding leukaemia cases over the past 10 years have resulted in a noticeable proximity between the homes/bedrooms and transformers. In the Academy reference book (German) one of these such stories is described on page 120.
150 meter (500 feet) distance!
From both the medical and environmental medicine community, the recommendation since the 1980’s has been to not live within a distance of 150 metres (500ft) from transformer stations, electrical train/tram lines and power lines.
What to do if a transformer is too close to the house?
It is unwise to generalise and put a theoretical safe/unsafe distance on this issue. The best approach is to have a measurement of both magnetic field and electric fields done by a GEOVITAL Geobiologist. This way you can see how much nanoTesla (nT) or milliGauss (mG) and volts per meter (V/m) this transformer produces.
From these measurements one can then estimate how serious the problems, produced by this transformer, really are.
Counter measures or strategies only make sense at that time, because otherwise unnecessary money could be spent without knowing what it is actually trying to address.
