1. People all over the world are reporting adverse health effects caused by wind turbines.
2. The adverse health effects which they report are serious.
3. There are no evidence-based guidelines for safe setbacks of wind turbines from homes.
4. Research is required. Our preliminary work suggests a minimum of 2 kilometres (2000 metres, 6,652 feet). The average setback from people who are reporting these adverse health effects is 880 metres (2,887 feet).
Dr Robert McMurtry, Order of Canada, records his concerns about Industrial Find out about the effect of Wind Turbines on human health and community well-being, in this powerful video called “No Safe Place.” Dr McMurtry has devoted thousands of hours to learn about Victims of Wind across Ontario, and to share that knowledge with you. What is a safe “setback”? McMurtry says, “We don’t know.” Why is Ontario rushing to place even more turbines across the landscape when it is clear that people are becoming ill and even being forced from their homes? Internationally, thousands are reporting the effects, tinnitus, sleep disorders, stress, depression, vertigo, migraines, to name a few.
