Everyone knows how dangerous electricity is but not everyone knows that you can be in danger by not even touching it. One of the big talks in Farmersville, Tx right now is the danger of living near power lines. Farmersville is a remote area in North East Texas where the town has to get all their energy from larger surrounding cities. Once this energy is sent to the near by power lines it is stored and used by the locals. There have been several cases reported of disease such as childhood leukemia increasing in residents within a block of main power lines. This is a danger to residents that live in remote places and their families. We can only hope to figure out exactly what is causing this issue and figure out a solution. For now, people should be causious and know the danger of these power lines when buying houses and land.
