    Please give me some advice on a lot my wife and 2 kids are thinking on building our home on in SC. It will be located next to a large power line right of way. Its near a lake so we have those big metal towers. I'd say the nearest tower from my house will be like 50 to 75 yards. I took a emf meter over to my future lot and got no H field reading where the home will be or around the yard. Of course when I walked up under the lines it started reading harmful. The device I measured it with measures electric field radiation and magnetic field emission. The electric field radiation part on the meter was going off and reading harmful. Is it? Please tell me the difference between electrical field radiation and magnetic field emission. I read e field will not harm you as there are e fields all around us all the time.
    I assume the electric field is going off cause we are near the lines is all.
    As Im sure you know you can read all kind of various opinions on Emfs on the internet. I am getting no reading so I assume Im good.
    We are so confused on this subject and dont want to harm ours or kids bodies over the years. We just need to set our minds at ease so we can enjoy this new house.
    thank you.

    Type into your search bar e.g. 'high tension power lines health issues' and follow the leads. Up to you which articles to believe.
    Technically, being at 50 or 60 Hz, both the E & H fields you will experience are near fields thus not radiation. Come under the umbrella term 'non-ionizing EMF's'. A UK study some time back concluded somewhat increased cancer risk (mostly childhood leukaemia) for those in near proximity was due to corona discharge from the lines attracting thus concentrating radioactive material present in the atmosphere. But it was also linked to residual effects of long banned atmospheric nuclear weapons tests, thus a receding problem:

    Are there glasses, or some kind of device that allows you to see all wavelengths of the EM spectrum?

    There are various devices. For example, radios detect radio waves.
