‘Green’ Energy Guinea Pigs: Wind Industry’s American Victims Monitored for Infrasound Effects on Heart & Health

STT recently reported on the German government’s efforts to erase data that shows residents are exposed to levels of wind turbine infrasound dangerous to health.

Evidence proving the unnecessary harm done to wind farm neighbours by wind turbine noise mounts by the day: Germany’s Max Planck Institute has identified sub-audible infrasound as the cause of stress, sleep disruption and more (see our post here); and a Swedish group have shown that it’s the pulsing nature of low-frequency wind turbine noise  (‘amplitude modulation’) that is responsible for sleep problems in those forced to live with it (see our post here).

The obvious connection between exposure to low-frequency wind turbine noise and infrasound and health problems (such as sleep deprivation and cardiovascular disease), is something the wind industry has been attempting to cover up, since the very beginning.

Now, a study of unwilling human guinea pigs is about to kick off in Seneca County, Ohio.

I congratulate Seneca County for being selected to participate in one of the largest experiments to determine the effects of infrasound on human organ systems. With large numbers of massive wind turbines planned in this densely populated county, medical effects on internal organs can be analyzed.

The size of the proposed wind turbines ensures the generation of low-frequency infrasound. The proximity of wind turbines to schools guarantees that as children age, internal organ deterioration can be compared to child control groups from similar demographic locations lacking wind turbines.

After 10, 20 and 30 years, researchers can evaluate effects on human internal organs from infrasound. This is important, because western scientific research and medical literature has little written concerning short, or long-term infrasound effects on human organs such as lung, heart and kidney.

However, infrasound effects on internal organ tissue have been studied by numerous researchers in the former Soviet Union. They found that infrasound waves cause significant changes to heart tissue and other internal organs.

In the 1990s, European investigators studied internal organs in animal subjects and human workers exposed to infrasound. They found significant changes in lung tissue and heart pericardium. The authors also were concerned with potential damage to internal kidney structures.

In January 2018, German researchers presented results concerning infrasound effect on cardiac tissue contractility. They found cardiac tissue exposed to infrasound decreased tissue contractility by 25 percent.

Seneca County wind farm companies state that wind farm sound levels will only approach 55dbA.

That information is misleading concerning infrasound. The “A” designation is a filtration formula including only audible sound between 20Hz and 20,000Hz. Infrasound is defined as occurring between 0-20Hz and is not identified with the dbA formula.

With multitude turbines planned, decibel level determination may be problematic. Overlapping sound wave energies add together, similar to overlapping ripples on water from multiple stones dropped simultaneously. Some waves cancel out. Other waves enlarge.

Wind turbine numbers become directly proportional to infrasound wave energy multiplication. Also, infrasound waves are stable, traveling great distances.

For those interested in their own personal research on infrasound effects, information was obtained for this letter from the PubMed website (Key words: infrasound AND heart, or infrasound AND physiological effects) and the Wikipedia website. Soviet research, translated from Cyrillic, was obtained from the archives at The National Library of Medicine at the National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Maryland.

  2. We do not need more “study” on guinea pigs for more tens of years. The Nazis did this once, and that was obscene. We KNOW the impacts from ILFN, etc., and don’t need more study. Period.

  3. Refer to one of the slides in this video:

  4. It’s probably not possible to prevent the radiation, like the light frequency spectrum much of which is not visible so with the acoustic spectrum.

  5. Jackie Rovensky says:

    Too late once they are installed – there are many people currently exposed so the money could be better spent researching their health issues. As usual it taken it’s OK to do the research after the event rather than preventing it.

  6. The people of rural Ontario have been used as guinea pigs. Take a look at this highly reputable, Canadian Medical Association Journal where harm is documented.

    The last comment is an update on harm that is the result of cumulative impact on the heart.
    Why is this not an obvious human rights violation? Why is this cruelty continuing?

  7. Kristi Rosenquist says:

    But, I don’t think there is actually a medical study planned. I think the writer’s point is that this is an opportunity to do so because the unwilling humans will be getting experimented on anyway.

    • “I think the writer’s point is that this is an opportunity to do so because the unwilling humans will be getting experimented on anyway.”
      The people of rural Ontario did not consent to be the subjects of an experiment. There had been no scientific evidence to confirm that having their homes surrounded by arrays/clusters of turbines, in close proximity (under 20 km), would not cause harm.
      Only ‘under duress’, some people agreed to be studied because after reporting their harm and being totally frustrated with the nonfeasance, misfeasance and malfeasance from wind companies and the complicit Liberal government’s agents, they were finally offered a possible route to protection by a Health Unit.
      Being studied is not an “opportunity”, when one is being harmed while being studied. Where else in society would this unethical situation occur? The harm is cumulative and according to Dr. Mariana Alves-Pereira, it is irreversible. How is it possible that enduring cumulative and irreversible harm while being studied is an “opportunity”? The only situation I can think of where people would agree to this is if they were terminally ill.
      Who in their right mind would agree to do this otherwise? These turbines need to be turned off. This is an ethical crisis.

  8. At the other end of the scale my loft is kept free of rats by an high frequency unit very successfully.

  9. It is high time somebody attempted to produce an anti-noise device to counter wind turbine noise AND infrasound. The lower the frequency, the more easily infrasound should be neutered by active devices. I would be really interested to know if anyone has tried the current commercial offerings and received any relief.
