Wind turbine sounds have no adverse effect on health – study
A report issued in December 2009 shows there is no evidence that audible or sub-audible sounds from wind turbines have direct adverse effect on human health.
The report is the result of a comprehensive review of current literature on the perceived relation between health effects and wind turbines. Established by the Canadian and the American Wind Energy Associations, the panel undertaking the review consisted of experts in the fields of audiology, acoustics, otolaryngology (ear, nose and throat), occupational/environmental medicine, and public health.
