Cause of wind turbine syndrome goes missing

A new study from South Australia's EPA finds the contribution of wind turbines to infrasound at nearby houses is insignificant, contrary to what anti-wind farm groups would have you believe.

The South Australian EPA has just released a report finding that infrasound – very low frequency sound (between 1 to 20 hertz) – is not noticeably greater in households nearby to wind farms than other locations. It is claimed by some groups and individuals opposed to wind farms, such as the Waubra Foundation, that wind turbines cause a wide array of illnesses to people in nearby residences due to the infrasound they apparently emit.
