Is it safe to live right by a radio antenna tower?
 
 

"There are two theories on this. I will give you both and I suggest you do your own research - just consider this a bit of a guide for your research. Most experts say that living close to a radio transmission tower or hydro lines is safer then standing close to the microwave every morning when you make your breakfast (it's been said that a toaster will give off as many EMPs). However, some experts say that there is no definitive data about living close to radio towers or hydro wires and recommend caution as there is not enough research on prolonged exposure.  

 

As far as the health risks I am not qualified to give you an answer, however I will give you an answer as a REALTOR about future value. FACT: A lot of people are uncomfortable living near hydro wires and transmission towers. Because of this fact it will take longer to sell the property and it will likely sell for less money. Hope this helps."
