Health Effects of Wind Turbines on Nearby Residents
Summary of my scientific opinions It is my learned opinion that there is ample scientific evidence that wind turbines sited near residences cause serious health problems for some people living in those residences. However, we do not have enough of the systematic population-based research that is needed to estimate the portion of the population that is vulnerable to the effects, the effects of exposure variables (e.g., how risk varies depending on how far away from a residence the turbines are), . . .

Properly Interpreting the Epidemiologic Evidence about the Health Effects of Industrial Wind Turbines on Nearby Residents
Abstract There is overwhelming evidence that wind turbines cause serious health problems in nearby residents, usually stress-disorder type diseases, at a nontrivial rate. The bulk of the evidence takes the form of thousands of adverse event reports. There is also a small amount of systematically-gathered data. The adverse event reports provide compelling evidence of the seriousness of the problems and of causation in this case because of their volume, the ease of observing exposure and outcome incidence, and case-crossover data. . . .

Analysis of the Epidemiology and Related Evidence on the Health Effects of Wind Turbines on Local Residents
A summary of the main conclusions of my expert opinion, based on my knowledge of epidemiology and scientific methods, and my reading of the available studies and reports, is as follows: There is ample scientific evidence to conclude that wind turbines cause serious health problems for some people living nearby. Some of the most compelling evidence in support of this has been somewhat overlooked in previous analyses, including that the existing evidence fits what is known as the case-crossover study . . .
