A soon to be released study of the health effects of living near wind turbines challenges the popular image of the graceful, benign windmill gently coaxing free megawatts from the passing zephyrs.
Dr. Nina Pierpont, a New York pediatrician, has studied subjects who
live near windmills in the U.S., the U.K., Italy, Ireland and Canada
for the last five years. She concludes that some, but not all, of the
near-windmill dwellers show signs of a newly-identified health risk
which she calls Wind Turbine Syndrome, or WTS.
