Negative effects of turbines on health  

Credit:  LETTER: Negative effects of turbines on health | Blackmore Vale Magazine | April 07, 2014 | www.blackmorevale.co.uk/ ~~

I strongly contest Dr Erik Blakeley‘s comments in your recent article calling wind turbine noise as a placebo effect. As a medical practitioner in the energy field of over 32 years I disagree.

I have amassed over the last few years negative health evidence from across the globe wherever wind turbines are erected, many locals even supported their erection initially only to find their health began to deteriorate afterwards.

Apart from Canadian, American, Danish and Australian information I have articles from specialists in “sleep disorder“ from the BMJ (British Medical Association) referring to ‘wind turbine syndrome‘ . It is the ULF (Ultra Low Frequency)or ELF vibrations that cause the most harm and cannot be heard. Can Dr Blakeley deny the MoD developed and used these frequencies for “acoustic warfare“ and in Russia ULF was developed by Vladimir–Gavreau for use in the Cold War of the 1950s onward only to be banned because it was so devastating on the human organism!

We must remember each person is an individual, some more sensitive than others and this has to be respected. The global evidence that amasses are that the main symptoms are insomnia, elevated blood pressure, depression, irritability and even suicide, never mind the effects on epileptics and hyperactive children. As our whole world is comprised of energy, we live in a time of Einstein and Quantam Physics not Newton, so as to accuse locals as “fools to their symptoms“ is not only utterly insulting to their intelligence but also ignores their individual health susceptibility.
