Wind Farms and health – are there issues?


Concerns are growing over the potential health impact of siting wind farms next to residential areas because of what is known as ‘vibroacoustic disease’. Some recent research has indicated that the low frequency vibration that these giant turbines emit can interfere with sleep and introduce a range of uncomfortable and in some cases debilitating symptoms such as nausea, depression and severe headaches.

Scientists continue to investigate this Wind Turbine Syndrome, and in the meantime there is a growing call for these installations to be kept at least 1.5 kilometres away from homes. [Via]

 These results irrefutably demonstrate that wind turbines in the proximity of residential areas produce acoustical environments that can lead to the development of VAD in nearby home-dwellers. In order to protect Public Health, ILFN-producing devices must not be placed in locations that will contaminate residential areas with this agent of disease.
