Draper et al. found that the incidence of childhood leukaemia was slightly elevated for children living at distances of 200-600 m from high-voltage transmission lines. This elevation cannot be explained by EMF exposure and it is suggested that it may be due to population mixing in housing developments which followed the construction of the lines.
