    Jane is always telling:rolleyes: asking me to unplug the hook up lead when we're at home as it's making her migraines worse:( The lead runs from back garden shed down the side alley then into the van, I have heard people don't like to live near or under Pylons due to the electrical currents but a single hook up lead shortly not, maybe i'm wrong and could it be true ?

    Best go live in the woods......
    Your house will have at least 1/4 mile of unshielded electrical cables of one type or another running through, under and around it.
    I don't think one more cable will make any difference.

    Sorry to hear that it affects Jane . I read a blog on here about a funster who converted his own van as it seriously affected him . I think his was micro waves or something. I can't find his blog or remember his name. But he was travelling with his girlfriend to get away from hotspots in Europe. So I'm sure electricity can affect people too.
    Hopes she feels better soon.

    I agree about the pylon theory as there are zillions of volts flying through the air but a 230 volt shielded cable won't leak nowt.

    I think Jane just wants you to tidy the lead away. What about putting one of those plugs in the front of the house and just plugging the motorhome into that?

    If he was welsh i think his problem was working with mobile phones for years and even wi/fi effected him. Sounds horrible to live with but he did not half make a good job with a luton van self build.

    Booz. Look behind the fridge mate as they tend to hide a vodka bottol there. Might be to late for her now but worth a check.

    Cornwall, parts of Devon & some parts of Wales seem to have the some of the highest Radon readings in the U.K. for some reason.

    I remember the guy who was driving off to escape mobile phone signals. I didn't comment at the time because it wouldn't have helped but put simply, it was all imaginary. High voltage power lines are a bit different and I wouldn't like to live under one, if only because of the noise especially when it's damp, but again I'm not aware of any trials or surveys which have shown any link.

    It's from the underlying rock but the threat is from a radioactive gas which emits charged particles. The risk is well understood. Very different from electromagnetic radiation.
