From: Measuring electromagnetic fields (EMF) around wind turbines in Canada: is there a human health concern?

Figure 4

Comparing magnetic fields from wind turbines and 500 kV power lines with common household electrical devices. ‘Wind Turbine’ represents the maximum magnetic field (mG) measured at the base of wind turbines (n = 11) in the Kingsbridge 1 Wind Farm. ‘500 kV Line’ represents the maximum magnetic field measured beneath the 500 kV power line located within the study area. All other household electrical device data at six inch distance was taken from NIEHS [30]. The international regulatory standard published by ICNIRP [31] for EMF exposure protective of human health is provided for comparison.
