Poor response to Huron County wind turbine health study  

Credit:  By Bob Montgomery | Blackburn News | November 12, 2018 | blackburnnews.com ~~

The Huron County Health Unit’s study of any relationship between wind turbines and health complaints won’t be as detailed as they had hoped.

The County’s Acting Medical Officer of Health says of the five thousand people who live close enough to a turbine in Huron County to be eligible for the study, slightly over 100 registered for the study.

Doctor Maarten Bokhout says that means they won’t be able to do the rigorous study that would have provided a reasonable answer to the question of whether there are health problem related to turbines.

“One of the things we could do in a situation like that is to make an assumption, but the assumption is that the people who were clearly not interested had no problems, so that’s some of the things you can do with data. I don’t think we’ll bother trying to do that because that’s open to criticism.”

Dr. Bokhout suggests that with the limited number of responses, they may be able to determine if people tend to complain more, the closer they live to the turbines.
