Health among teenagers is especially worrying / BROADBAND OVER POWERLINES / Electrical current from electro magnetic radiation

Canadians are living longer but not healthier – health among teenagers is especially worrying

From CBC article about the report:
Sixty-seven per cent of teenagers reported excellent health in 2005, down from 80 per cent in 1998, the report said. A growing number of teenagers reported difficulty with everyday functions including memory, thinking and mental wellbeing.

If you've ever wondered How Canadians are REALLY doing, you're in the right place. A newly released report shows that: even in good economic times the lion's share of benefits go to the wealthy while the poor stay poor and the shrinking middle class muddles through; Canadians are living longer but not healthier – health among teenagers is especially worrying; but crime is down and social relationships in our communities are stronger. The report also shows that cuts or lack of improvements to government programs like welfare, Employment Insurance and publicly funded medical services are hurting Canadians.

Hi All
The story below gives you a good idea of what our bodies are being subjected to from various sources of electro magnetic radiation.  To be able to capture this amount of energy from such a long distance, indicates the amount of dangerous radiation that is being poured into the environment.

Ambient electromagnetic radiation–emitted from Wi-Fi transmitters, cell-phone antennas, TV masts, and other sources–could be converted into enough electrical current to keep a battery topped up, says Markku Rouvala, a researcher ... Earlier this year, Joshua Smith at Intel and Alanson Sample at the University of Washington, in Seattle, developed a temperature-and-humidity sensor that draws its power from the signal emitted by a 1.0-megawatt TV antenna 4.1 kilometers away. ...
