The doctors, researchers and health practitioners worldwide who get it

courage1An impressive number of health practitioners, researchers and acousticians around the world are now voicing their concern about the impact of wind turbines on people’s health.

The list has been published by the Waubra Foundation, the European Platform Against Windfarms (EPAW) and the North American Platform Against Windfarms (NA-PAW).

The latter two organisations represent more than 600 associations of wind farm victims from 27 countries.

These health professionals should be honored, assert the three NGOs.

It takes courage to uphold the rights of victims against the powerful coalitions behind the wind industry.

And when future generations look back on this extraordinary saga, these people will be remembered for their perseverance,  insight and resolution, often in the face of sustained personal attack.

    Although wind turbines have negative impacts on people’s health
    nothing about it is ever reported in the medias for the lay people,
    perhaps the result of the powerful Wind Energy lobbies.
    Medical studies must be made accessible to all.

  2. Chapman should go and have a meeting with these professional people above, and learn the truth about the trouble the wind turbines are having on peoples health.
