I think you are referencing the first paper on the subject in which the authors went out and counted the number of powerlines and estimated their distance to a bunch of houses and then checked the health of the families and found a correlation (pardon the poor grammer).
The authors were serious but the study was not. I can't remember where it was published.

I remember that 40+/- years ago a study found that children living close
to electric high-power lines got higher incidence of leukemia, as
children living far away from power lines. Unfortunately, I didn't find
any article on this subject in Medline.
Do some of you remember these studies? Where these studies serious? I
would appreciate any reference or indication concerning this subject.
Have a nice day and kind regards
