The impact of electromagnetic field exposure on health is still controversial. Scientific evidence are very few. This study has the objective to add information about that issue. This study has been done at kecamatan Tulangan and Wonoayu Sidoarjo district in a community who live under 500 KV (Extra High Tension) transmission lines. The number of sample were 229 persons and taken by simple random sampling from a group of population between 15-49 years old. Electric and magnetic fields are measured using ELF (Extremely Low Frequency) survey meter, and health disorders were asked using questionnaries. The result of this study showed that for electric field exposure there are trends of ; increasing headache among the group of age 25-34 years and >=35 years old (p=0,00274; p=0,00122) and also among male and female (p= 0,01962; p = 0,00160). Whereas magnetic field exposure gave the same impact for headache among groups age (p = 0,00305; p=0,00381) and female (p=0,00015). The increase of vertigo disorder happened among age group between 25-34 years old (p=0,01251) and only among females (p=0,04297) for electrical field exposure, whereas for magnetic field exposure p=0,01173 and p=0,0164. The increase in heart beat disorder only happened among the age group between 15-24 years old for magnetic field exposure. The conclusion of this study is that the increase of electromagnetic field exposure, so increases the prevalence of health disorders e.q headache, vertigo and heart beat.
