Windfarm infrasound brings migraine and depression

Complaints from two villages near onshore wind farms have sparked an urgent enquiry by the British Wind Association and the UK Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra). Even villagers supportive of renewable energy are reporting increased levels of headaches, migraines, palpitations, dizziness, insomnia and depression. It seems that only audible noise levels were considered when selecting sites. Medical experts suspect that 'infrasound' (inaudible low level vibrations transmitted through both the air and earth) is the problem. Meanwhile, some villagers are moving out and house prices are dropping.

Denmark, which began building wind turbines in the 1970s, stopped building onshore wind farms because of the infrasound problem.
