Independent researchers Carmen Krogh and Dr McMurtry  provide a detailed response in the December 2016 edition of  Noise & Health publication to Dr McCunney’s et al critical commentary of the peer reviewed and published paper- Diagnostic criteria for adverse health effects in the environs of wind turbines.

“The content of the article by McCunney et al. suggests that its authors may not have understood the procedure presented for diagnosing patients suffering from ‘annoyance’ and the ‘well-known stress effects of exposure to noise’. While this response does not address all the weaknesses contained in the analysis by McCunney et al., it is our hope it will help clarify understanding of this diagnostic tool. We invite readers to explore the work of McMurtry and Krogh, and as always we welcome constructive commentary.”
