Biological effects of electromagnetic fields on the human body, animals and plants have been a subject of scientific interest and public concern for their risk on the living organisms such as blood leukemia and others. The high voltage transmission and distribution lines, which pass beside some houses, factories and schools are source of electromagnetic fields. This paper presents the field calculations around and near of high voltage transmission lines 220 kV and 500kV. To calculate the induced current, the power density, the electric field and the magnetic field of grounded and ungrounded human body cylindrical model are used. MATLAB program package is used for mathematical calculation of the distribution of the EMF in human body under high voltage power transmission lines.
