Of course, and one must suppose that Doll and his cluey colleagues have
noticed this obvious fact. What's more, living a few blocks away from power
lines *also* corresponds with bigger cities, more pollution, utility
companies nearby, etc., but not with [marginally] elevated disease
incidence. The detail I found striking is that the incidence apparently
only rises *downwind* of the lines, suggesting airborne contaminants.
General airborne industrial crap? Again, if that were so you'd expect to
find it across the whole neighborhood, neh?
