Research body says further wind farm studies needed

The National Health and Medical Research Council says it still needs more research into the health impacts of wind farms.

The council has released its wind farm health information paper after comparing seven studies from around the world.

It hasn’t found any strong evidence to suggest wind turbines negatively affect people’s health, and it’s prompted calls for government to ease restrictions on building wind farms.

But council chief executive Warwick Anderson says out of the 2,000 studies it looked at, only 11 of them were considered high quality enough to be included, with only one from Australia.

“I think it’s a call for higher quality research to be done in this area.

“This information paper is really on what scientific evidence there is out there. We may have missed things.

“So we want the community to make sure if there’s any good evidence out there, please let us know in this consultation period.”
