Artificial Planetary Magnetospheres
From the article;
"The finite magnetic field generated by a 6.4 MA superconducting ring would necessitate a 2.6 km safety zone adjacent to the cable to assure that the public exposure limit of 5 G is not exceeded. The routes for laying the cables should thus be chosen carefully to avoid cities and residential areas."

5 Gauss is a safety limit imposed because of pacemakers and so on.
