Mail on the attack

The Daily Mail ran a piece yesterday on the 'dangers posed by living close to windfarms.' They cite a new American study which argues that the infrasonic to ultrasonic noise and vibrations emitted by wind turbines can cause an array of symptoms including tinnitus, vertigo and sleep deprivation. In fairness to the Mail they do (half way into the piece) describe the sample size of the study - 38 people, and indicate that the majority of scientists believe that there is no danger posed by wind turbines.

Im sure we will see more of this study referenced in the future.
