Waubra CEO Responds to Senate Inquiry Into Excessive Noise Bill re Symptoms
Sarah Laurie, the Foundation’s CEO, responds to a question by the Inquiry Chair about symptoms suffered by those whose health is adversely affected by the proximity of wind turbines
List of symptoms and medical problems
As requested by you, I have provided details of the range of symptoms and health problems which have been reported to me by residents living near industrial wind turbines, which the residents and in some instances their treating doctors have told me are new since the wind development commenced operating, and which correlate with exposure to the operating wind development. I have also provided details of those conditions which the residents or their treating doctors have told me worsen with such exposure to operating wind turbines – i.e. the health conditions or symptoms were pre-existing prior to the wind development commencing, but they consistently worsen with exposure and IMPROVE back to baseline when the resident is away from the turbines.
