The problem of finding electric field effects on living bodies because of the increase in the operating voltage of overhead transmission lines has been the object of intense attention in recent years, A great amount of experimental data and theoretical studies exists on this matter, but the wide range of interest, methods, opinions, precautions and, of course, the inherent difficulty of the subject makes any well accepted synthesis almost impossible. The interdisciplinary nature of biology with electrical engineering is also a cause of the lack of a common language. Misinterpretation of results and cross criticisms between different points of view have been fostered in many cases more by personal convictions than by the acquisition of irrefutable progress in this field.
