What is the evidence for potential health impacts from wind power
Wind power is a major renewable energy source without most of the environmental pollution associated with the fossil fuel industries. It therefore has great potential to protect and improve health
Fomenting Sickness: Nocebo Priming of Residents about Expected Wind Turbine Health Harms
A case study of the apparent impact of an anti-wind farm public meeting on the generation of negative news media and the subsequent expression of concerns about anticipated health and noise impacts to a planning authority approval hearing in Victoria, Australia is presented.
The Development and Tendency of Current Off-Shore Wind Power Plant All over the World
Based on the analysis of the new and accumulated offshore wind power installed capacity and wind farm and distribution in 2010-2019, this paper focuses on the prediction and comprehensive analysis of


Systematic Review 2013: Association Between Wind Turbines and Human Distress
In this review, the presence of reasonable evidence is demonstrated that an association exists between wind turbines and distress in humans and the consistency of association across studies found in the scientific literature argues for the credibility of this association.
The Pattern of Complaints about Australian Wind Farms Does Not Match the Establishment and Distribution of Turbines: Support for the Psychogenic, ‘Communicated Disease’ Hypothesis
Background and Objectives With often florid allegations about health problems arising from wind turbine exposure now widespread, nocebo effects potentially confound any future investigation of
Evaluating the impact of wind turbine noise on health-related quality of life.
It is suggested that wind farm noise can negatively impact facets of HRQOL, with residents living within 2 km of a turbine installation reporting lower overall quality of life, physical quality oflife, and environmentalquality of life.
Response to noise from modern wind farms in The Netherlands.
A dose-response relationship between calculated A-weighted sound pressure levels and reported perception and annoyance was found and it is demonstrated that people who benefit economically from wind turbines have a significantly decreased risk of annoyance, despite exposure to similar sound levels.
Effects of industrial wind turbine noise on sleep and health.
Significant dose-response relationships between PSQI, ESS, SF36 Mental Component Score, and log-distance to the nearest IWT were identified and the adverse event reports of sleep disturbance and ill health by those living close to IWTs are supported.
Wind Turbine Syndrome: A Report on a Natural Experiment
August 9, 2008 This report documents a consistent, often debilitating complex of symptoms experienced by adults and children while living near large (1.5-3 MW) industrial wind turbines, examines
Living in the Vicinity of Wind Turbines — A Grounded Theory Study
Little is known of wind turbines' impact on people living in their vicinity. The aim of this study was to gain a deeper understanding of how people perceive and are affected by wind turbines in their
Infrasound Emission from Wind Turbines
A critical survey of all known published measurement results of infrasound from wind turbines has been made. The survey indicates that wind turbines of contemporary design with an upwind rotor
How common are symptoms? Evidence from a New Zealand national telephone survey
Symptom reporting was significantly positively associated with medical visits in the previous year and current medication taking and women reported a significantly greater number of symptoms.
