Wind Turbine Syndrome

headache

There is now compelling evidence from Europe, the United States and Canada that repetitive noise, low-frequency noise from wind-turbines, tonal noise from the associated transformers, and the flicker effect from the turbine blades rotating in reflected and transmitted sunlight is implicated in such things as sleep deprivation, loss of concentration, cardiac problems, depression, chronic migraine headaches, and learning difficulties in children.

These are now well enough documented that they have been given names: Wind-Turbine Syndrome and Vibro-Acoustic Disease. Some wind-power developers, provincial politicians and green energy advocates are anxious to deny such problems, but evidence, both anecdotal and scientifically researched, is quickly accumulating to show that such problems are real. See the Wind Concerns Ontario site for background on the health problem.
