Wind Power Is Bad for Your Health

by William Yeatman on August 18, 2008

According to Dr. Nina Pierpont of Malone, N.Y., living within two miles of a wind turbine causes serious health problems, including headaches; difficulty sleeping; tinnitus, or ringing in the ears; learning and mood disorders; panic attacks; irritability; disruption of equilibrium, concentration and memory; and childhood behavior problems. Dr. Pierpont has coined the phrase "wind turbine syndrome" to describe these effects, which are caused by the low-frequency noise and vibration generated by wind machines.
