Headaches, sleepless nights, high blood pressure – Waubra wind farm  

Credit:  14/06/2012 | reporter: Irene Scott | abc.net.au/triplej/hack ~~

More than 60 wind farms have sprung up across Australia in the last decade.

Giant white propellers scattered across hilltops around the country.

But some people that live close to these farms are saying they’re ruining their lives.

Headaches, sleepless nights, high blood pressure.

They say the wind farms are making them sick.

But medical experts say their symptoms are psychosomatic.

We headed to the tiny town of Waubra, about two hours northwest of Melbourne to find a town divided by the farms.

Half of the residents have turbines and the added financial benefit.

The other half say the turbines are making their rural hamlet unlivable.
