Wind Developer Forced To Change Claim of No Medical Evidence Of Adverse Health Effects
UK Advertising Standards Authority says windfarms can’t be advertised as producing no health effects
In 2012 Scottish Power Renewables claimed “There is no medical evidence to suggest that wind turbines affect health”. This claim appeared in the FAQ section of their web site promoting the Mynydd Mynyllod Windfarm in Wales. After a complaint to the ASA, and an investigation lasting more than nine months Scottish Power Renewables have assured the ASA that they will “make the basis for claims for health and wind farms clearer, avoiding definitive claims”.
