Hello, The city added a new electric transformation station near my house and has recently closed down a kindergarten adjacent to it due to 'radiation safety' reasons. My house is two doors down and my mother is concerned that radiation from the station might be hazardous to her health. She asked me, as a physics undergrad student, what I think about it. Personally I've been around come strong oscillating magnetic fields at the lab, and I don't see much reason to fear them. Especially the ~50Hz ones which produce wavelengths so huge that they would have to be of enormous amplitude to be felt by the human body. Besides, there is a metal fence and a few enforced concrete walls between our house and the source of the radiation that would probably absorb most of the radiation. Still, I'm no expert (yet) and I'd like to know if anyone has any idea which EM radiation that could emanate from a transformation station is harmful and how to avoid it.
