Lecture poster.The effects of wind turbines will be the topic of discussion at an event featuring Carmen Krogh called “Harm from Wind Turbines: What Has Been Known for Decades” on Wednesday, May 7 at 3:30 p.m. in DC 1302.

The talk is being hosted by Professor Richard Mann in the Cheriton School of Computer Science, who has been researching, recording, and measuring wind turbine noise since 2013.

Krogh has been invited to present the latest findings on wind turbines and human health.

“The topic of adverse health effects associated with wind facilities is globally debated,” reads the talk’s abstract. “It is acknowledged that if placed too close to residents, industrial wind turbines can negatively affect the physical, mental and social well-being of some. There is published research on the effects of Low Frequency/Infrasound (LFI) on people and animals dating back several decades. This presentation will provide some of the available evidence drawn from peer reviewed literature, authoritative references, and other sources.”

Carmen Krogh is an independent, full-time volunteer who has researched health and other effects associated with industrial wind energy facilities who has been published in peer-reviewed scientific and medical journals and has presented papers at scientific noise conferences. She held senior positions at a major teaching hospital; as a drug information researcher; a professional association and the Health Protection Branch of Health Canada (PMRA). She is a former Director of Publications and Editor-in-chief of the Compendium of Pharmaceuticals and Specialties (CPS), the book used by physicians, nurses, and health professionals for prescribing information on prescription medication in Canada.

The event is free and open to the public.
