Assistant Professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School and director of Interdepartmental Neuroscience Center at the Massachusetts General Hospital, Bakhos A. Tannous, confirmed that the exposure to electromagnetic fields can cause serious diseases, including cancer, especially to children.

It also increases stress levels, and affects the sleep cycle, the immunity system, the DNA and several body functions, Tannous told MTV.

The neuroscientist pointed out that hundreds of epidemiology studies carried out by Harvard, in collaboration with other universities, proved that living near high-voltage power lines increases the risk of developing cancer, especially in children, such as leukemia or brain cancer.
