Infrasound and its impact on people

Author:  Voskoboinick, Volodymyr

«Wind energy installations … generate acoustic waves and vibrations in the infrasound range. Research results have shown that this infrasound radiation has a significant impact on the environment, worsens ecology and has negative consequences for the health of living beings and, in particular, people who live and work near industrial wind turbines. Effects such as emotional/psychological disorders and sleep disturbances/failures, headaches, fatigue, decreased concentration and impact on quality of life are caused by local residence of wind energy facilities.» Volodymyr . . .
