Industrial wind turbine literature review to be published  

Credit:  The Meaford Independent | Friday, 23 May 2014 | www.themeafordindependent.ca ~~

A comprehensive report based on a literature review examining the health effects of Industrial Wind Turbines will be published in the online journal Cureus.

The report, Literature Review 2013: Association Between Wind Turbine Noise and Human Distress was co-authored by Grey Bruce Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Hazel Lynn and Epidemiological Researcher, Dr. Ian Arra, now with the Northern Ontario School of Medicine. The report was presented to the Board of Health for the Grey Bruce Health Unit on February 22, 2013.

Cureus is a peer-reviewed journal based in San Francisco with an international editorial board. No date has been announced for publication. Cureus supports publishing of medical science in a straightforward and transparent process. Authors retain copyright to their material. Cureus can be viewed at: www.cureus.com.

>Additionally, Dr. Arra will present findings from the review at the Canadian Public Health Association Continuing Professional Development Symposium, Monday, May 26, at Public Health 2014, CPHA’s annual conference. His presentation is accredited for continuing professional development. Details of the symposium can be found at: www.nsscm.ca/en/events/upcoming-phpc.

Some content of the review has been updated; however, the study results stay the same. The report demonstrates “The presence of reasonable evidence that an association exists between wind turbines and distress in humans. The existence of a dose-response relationship (between distance from wind turbines and distress) and the consistency of association across studies found in the scientific literature argue for the credibility of this association. Future research in this area is warranted as whether causal relationship exists or not.
