Before–after field study of effects of wind turbine noise on polysomnographic sleep parameters
Introduction: ‘Sleep, a natural behavioral state and a vital part of every individual’s life, involves distinct characteristics and many vital physiological changes in the body’s organs that are fundamental for physical and mental health. The physiological processes involve protein biosynthesis, excretion of specific hormones, and memory consolidation, all of which prepare the individual for the next wake period.

Wind Turbine Noise, Sleep Quality, and Symptoms of Inner Ear Problems
INTRODUCTION Wind turbines are a form of renewable energy, which generate electricity from wind energy, a practice dating back over 100 years. The production of electricity from the movement of wind turbine motor blades creates both mechanical and aerodynamic noise. This type of environmental noise is a growing public health concern, especially for residents living close to wind turbines. A body of evidence now exists to suggest that wind turbine noise can impair health and contribute to annoyance and sleep . . . Complete article »
