Canadian Strokes
Below is another very interesting story about health deterioration in young adult Canadians.  Please note that young persons who are more likely to be exposed to wireless radiation from cell phones and Wi Fi, have greatly increased health problems with stroke and blood pressure, while older person who are less likely to be exposed to wireless radiation are showing big improvements in hospitalization rates for strokes.

Alarming rise in strokes among younger people

Wednesday, February 9, 2011   CBC News

Young and middle-aged Americans are experiencing a sharp rise in hospitalization for strokes, says a new study echoing Canadian research that this age group is at greater risk for heart disease than they were in the past.

The U.S. numbers, reported Wednesday at an American Stroke Association conference in California, come from the first large U.S. -wide study of stroke hospitalizations broken down by age. Government researchers compared figures in 1994 and 1995 with those in 2006 and 2007.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention number show the sharpest increase - 51 per cent - was among men under the age of 35. Strokes rose among women in this age group, too, but not as fast -17 per cent.

The Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation's 2010 annual report describes a similar problem in this country. It showed that between 1994 and 2005, rates of high blood pressure among Canadians in general skyrocketed by 77 per cent, while diabetes rose by 45 per cent and obesity by 18 per cent.

It also said that more than 250,000 Canadians in their 20s and 30s had high blood pressure, making them the newest at-risk group.

High blood pressure, diabetes and obesity increase a person's likelihood of suffering a stroke.

The problem was worst among those aged 35 to 49. The prevalence of high blood pressure in that age group increased 127 per cent, diabetes by 64 per cent and obesity by 20 per cent.

The Heart and Stroke Foundation blamed unhealthy eating habits and lack of exercise for the problem.

Meanwhile, the CDC study showed the trend went the opposite way in older people. Hospitalization from strokes dropped by 25 per cent among men 65 and older and by 28 per cent among women in this age group.

Doctors think better prevention and treatment of conditions such as high blood pressure in older people may be contributing to the decline.

Epidemiological evidence for a health risk from mobile phone base stations.

Human populations are increasingly exposed to microwave/radiofrequency (RF) emissions from wireless communication technology, including mobile phones and their base stations. By searching PubMed, we identified a total of 10 epidemiological studies that assessed for putative health effects of mobile phone base stations. Seven of these studies explored the association between base station proximity and neurobehavioral effects and three investigated cancer. We found that eight of the 10 studies reported increased prevalence of adverse neurobehavioral symptoms or cancer in populations living at distances < 500 meters from base stations. None of the studies reported exposure above accepted international guidelines, suggesting that current guidelines may be inadequate in protecting the health of human populations. We believe that comprehensive epidemiological studies of long-term mobile phone base station exposure are urgently required to more definitively understand its health impact.
