Krogh, C. Risk of Harm & Wind Energy Facilities, Physicians as Health Advocates

A commentary by Carmen Krogh, BScPharm, January 2013

Rural physicians are frequently the first medical practitioners consulted by those reporting adverse health effects associated with the start up of wind turbine facilities near their homes.

Many family physicians have been responsive to their patients’ reports and started investigations to determine a diagnosis and initiate mitigation and remedial actions.

Based on the author’s research and commentary received from some of those reporting adverse health effects to their physicians, indications are that some family physicians appear to be uncertain about the correlation of adverse health effects and industrial wind energy facilities.

The paper discusses Symptoms, Observations, Physicians as Health Advocates and gives a Shapshot of Evidence.
