There is so much concern in Australia that the country’s Senate is holding investigations.The Waubra Foundation is a national organisation formed to facilitate “properly reviewed, independent research into the health problems which have been identified by residents living near wind turbines and other industrial sites which may have common cause.”Dr Sarah Laurie told us: “It is important that people realise that there are many doctors internationally who are really concerned about this, as well as acousticians.“A well informed community can really make life difficult for the planners who make these decisions as well as the developers. “They need to understand there is sufficient information out in the public domain to put them on legal notice that there are  some serious health problems emerging with this technology, and that it has not been properly tested or studied.“There are NO studies showing that these turbines do not cause any impact on the nearby population including turbine hosts, and an increasing number of adverse health events being reported which show that they do have a negative impact.”We also recommend viewing our DVD which is downloadable and burnable from the following website: http://www.wind-watch.org/video-waubra.php.For more go to http://www.waubrafoundation.com.au. DONEGAL WIND FARM CONCERNS GO GLOBAL AS DOCTOR WARNS OF HEALTH CONCERNS was last modified: May 29th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:DONEGAL WIND FARM CONCERNS GO GLOBAL AS DOCTOR WARNS OF HEALTH CONCERNSlast_img
