Protective shielding to go up near high-voltage power lines (w. comments)
Vietnam Created: 24 Apr 2006
Some 2,099 households in central Vietnam are to be protected from dangerous electromagnetic fields emanating from a high-voltage power line with shielding technology, said Power Company No 2.
The shields are to be set up to protect homes in line with Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) practice by end of March through central Vietnam, beginning in Gia Lai province and running north to Quang Binh province.
Leukemia, lymphoma and cancer of the nervous system are diseases that can be caused in children exposed to the powerful electromagnetic waves without protection.
The shield system is considered the most effective measure to combat the waves and effectively protect anyone that spends excessive periods of time near high-voltage power lines.

Hi All
It is good to see an 'advanced' country like Vietnam willing to admit that there is a serious health problem with electro magnetic fields and actually doing something to help its citizens. Lets hope that 'backward' countries like Canada, USA and Britain can learn from this advancement in knowledge!
