On November 6 2014 Health Canada posted on their website “Wind Turbine Noise and Health Study: Summary of Results”.
We have been contacted by individuals from around the world who have expressed concern over content and the quality of this Health Canada web posting
“Wind Turbine Noise and Health Study: Summary of Results” states:
“WTN annoyance was found to be statistically related to several self-reporting health effects including, but not limited to, blood pressure, migraines, tinnitus, dizziness, scores on the PSQI, and perceived stress” as well as related to “measured hair cortisol, systolic and diastolic blood pressure.”
These findings are additional evidence which support the health effects “conclusively demonstrated from exposure to wind turbine noise” identified by Health Canada and disclosed by the Honourable Rona Ambrose in a June 30, 2009 letter.
In the upcoming weeks and months, it is our intention to release a series of commentaries and disclose information on the “Wind Turbine Noise and Health Study: Summary of Results” and the Health Canada Wind Turbine Noise and Health Study.
In the meantime we have compiled the following relevant information to help inform those interested in Health Canada’s Wind Turbine Noise and Health Study.
