Detail For Show: Dr. Campbell McLaren, Power Lines and Childhood Leukemia


Show Description:

Dr. Campbell McLaren, a seasoned emergency room physician with Littleton Regional Hospital in Littleton, NH, addresses the relationship between electrical power lines and an increased incidence of childhood leukemia near power lines. The piece showcases a June 14, 2011 question-and-answer session held in the library of The Profile School in Bethlehem, NH. A PSNH power line runs along the school playing field border. Dr. McLaren gives a brief overview of the issues, measures the Electro Magnetic Field(EMF) inside the room and in the field, then opens the floor to questions by concerned citizens.

The discussion quickly moves to issues surrounding PSNH's current proposed widening of the Right Of Way(ROW), and the possible synergistic effect of Alternating Current(AC) lines running in tandem with Direct Current(DC) lines.

"Prudent Avoidance" is showcased as a way of keeping children safe from EMF excess at school and home. Hydro Quebec's Northern Pass(NP) project is slammed, and the show ends with a strong "No NP" sentiment.
