Published in: Practitioner 1988; 232 (1447): 435-436
Aim of study (acc. to author)
A study was conducted in UK to investigate the association between power lines
and recurrent headache
were delivered personally to 120 houses in the· study area and to 120 houses in the control area and three days later the questionnaires
