There is a growing scientific data around the world on the health risks associated with living close to Industrial Wind Turbine facilities. Below are links to sites detailing these risks. Many of these sites reflect years of both medical research and anecdotal reporting.
Properly Interpreting the Epidemiological Evidence About the Health Effects of Industrial Wind Turbines on Nearby Residents—”Proponents of turbines have sought to deny these problems by making a collection of contradictory claims, including that the evidence does not “count,” the outcomes are not “real” diseases, the outcomes are the victims’ own fault, and that acoustical models cannot explain why there are health problems so the problems must not exist.”
Evaluating the Impact of Wind Turbine Noise on Health-related Quality of Life—”Statistically significant differences were noted in some health-related quality of life domain scores with residents living within 2 km (1 ¼ mile) of a turbine installation reporting lower overall quality of life, physical quality of life and environmental quality of life.”
Adverse Health Effects of Industrial Wind Turbines—increasing numbers of rural patients reporting adverse effect from exposure to industrial wind turbines.
Wind Turbine Noise–What Audiologists Should Know—Noise from modern wind turbines is not known to cause hearing loss, but the low-frequency noise and vibration
emitted by wind turbines may have adverse health effects on humans and may become an important community noise concern.
Too Close—”Stories from Those Who Live in the Shadows” introduces you to those families who are sentenced to living life with the noise, flicker and adverse health effects of the Fairhaven Wind project. This is a 44 minute video.
Dr. Michael A. Nissenbaum, a radiologist at the Northern Maine Medical Center, conducted interviews with fifteen people living near the wind energy facility in Mars Hill, Maine. His preliminary data suggests the residents are experiencing medical problems (sleep disturbances, headaches, dizziness, weight changes, possible increases in blood pressure, as well as increased prescription medication use) due to noise emissions from the turbines near their homes.
