Public complaints about wind turbine noise and adverse health impacts justified ~
[Abstract] Significant proportions of IWT facility neighbors complain about turbine noise and sleep disturbances, among other adverse health complaints. We undertook an independent evaluation of several wind turbine projects located in Maine, Massachusetts, Vermont, New York, Illinois, Michigan, West Virginia, and Wisconsin to assess if common etiological factors exist. Adverse effects appear to relate to a basket of common factors that were overlooked or not included in preconstruction planning including noise predictions and assessments of likely community reactions. Correcting oversights . . . Complete article »

Nissenbaum, Michael
Industrial Wind Turbines, Human Variability, and Adverse Health Effects ~
Current generations of Industrial Wind Turbines (IWTs) have changed in many ways from those initially installed in Europe in the late 20th century. The generating power of modern IWTs is many times that of earlier generations. Current 1.5, 2.5, and 3MW turbines dwarf the 400 and 600KW turbines most Europeans and Americans encountered in the past. In addition to larger generators, current turbines have much longer blade lengths and are positioned much higher off the ground, often on ridgelines, to . . . Complete article »

Reply of Dr. Michael A. Nissenbaum to Senate Inquiry ~
Annoyance is a word that was used repeatedly in many of the earlier studies on adverse health effects related to industrial wind turbines, chiefly in the several and oft quoted papers by Eja Pedersen PhD et al, regarding populations in Scandinavia and the Netherlands. It became clear in the last several years that in Canada, the USA, the UK, and Australia, industry ‘white paper’ literature reviews, and/or some governmental reviews interpreted the word ‘annoyance’ in these studies to suggest a . . .

Effects of industrial wind turbine noise on sleep and health ~
Abstract Industrial wind turbines (IWTs) are a new source of noise in previously quiet rural environments. Environmental noise is a public health concern, of which sleep disruption is a major factor. To compare sleep and general health outcomes between participants living close to IWTs and those living further away from them, participants living between 375 and 1400 m (n = 38) and 3.3 and 6.6 km (n = 41) from IWTs were enrolled in a stratified cross-sectional study involving two . . .

Adverse health effects of industrial wind turbines: a preliminary report ~
INTRODUCTION Guidelines and regulations for the siting of industrial wind turbines (IWT) close to human habitation are generally predicated on the need to protect the sleep of the residents. The recommended setback distances and “safe” external noise levels make the assumptions that IWT noise can be regarded as similar to other forms of environmental noise (traffic, rail and aircraft) and is masked by ambient noise. There has been no in dependent verification that these assumptions are justified and that the . . . Complete article »

Nissenbaum, Michael
Wind Turbines, Health, Ridgelines, and Valleys ~
It is a medical fact that sleep disturbance and perceived stress result in ill effects, including and especially cardiovascular disease, but also chronic feelings of depression, anger, helplessness, and, in the aggregate, the banishment of happiness and reduced quality of life. Cardiovascular disease, as we all now, leads to reduced life expectancy. Try and get reasonably priced life insurance if you are hypertensive or have suffered a heart attack. If industrial wind turbines installed in close proximity to human habitation . . . Complete article »

Mars Hill Wind Turbine Project Health Effects — Preliminary Symptoms Survey Results ~
Presentation to Maine Medical Association, March 20, 2009 There are 28 389-ft-tall 1.5-MW GE turbines on Mars Hill in Aroostook County, Maine, with 20 homes within 3,400 feet (just over 1 kilometer) north and east of them, representing 35 adults and 16 children. Dr. Nissenbaum, a radiologist at Northern Maine Medical Center, interviewed 15 of the adults, from 9 homes 1,200-3,400 feet (average 2,500 ft) from the nearest turbine. The subjects comprised 7 women ranging in age from 41 to . . . Complete article »
