No. Only the magnetic field component is relevant to possible health
The magnetic fields associated with static EM sources exists only when
current is flowing. These magnetic fields are difficult to shield, and
easily penetrate buildings and people. The electrical fields associated
static EM sources exist whenever voltage is present, and regardless of
whether current is flowing. In contrast to magnetic fields, these
electrical fields have very little ability to penetrate skin or
buildings. Because static electric fields do not penetrate the body, it
is generally assumed that any biologic effect from routine exposure to
static fields must be due to the magnetic component of the field, or to
the electric fields and currents that these magnetic fields induce in
the body [1,54].
