  • I've heard (but it may be rumors so you may want to research it some) that living too close to those for too long can cause health problems such as cancer...then again they say everything causes cancer now ;o)

    I personally wouldn't because I use a cell phone as sole phone service and signal would be non existent.

  • High Voltage lines have been proven to promote the possibility of cancer. I would avoid them if possible.

  • The use of cell phones period have been proven to promote the possibility of cancer. Yet that stops noone. I'm sure people have been living near high voltage towers for years and are fine. I'd be more concerned about buying a house on a busy street where my kids might get hit by a car! But of course you should go with your instinct and do what you think would be best for your kids!
