Study on Health Effects of Wind Turbines

Health Effects of Wind Turbines to be Studied

Health Canada will be conducting a study responding to questions about the health effects of low frequency noise for people living near wind farms.

According to a Health Canada press release, the study is planned to focus on “an initially targeted sample size of 2,000 dwellings selected from 8-12 wind turbine installation facilities in Canada.”

They plan to:

  • Take blood pressure from participants among other measurements,
  • Conduct interviews and
  • Measure noise levels both inside and outside of the homes.

Results of the study are expected to be published in 2014.
