Health Considerations of Industrial Wind Turbines – Shapiro
Issues of sleep deprivation and cardiac risk
Presented by Dr. Stanley Shapiro, MD, F.A.C.C. April, 2013
• Any publicly sanctioned activity that resulted in causing sleep deprivation would be an unacceptable health risk to the effected population
• For industrial wind to succeed as a renewable energy source health considerations must be given the highest priority in siting decisions
• There is still much to learn; closing off further research is unconscionable.
