Popular Science News | Wind Turbine Syndrome

Popular Science News – Wind Turbine Syndrome is a term being used to describe a group of people living near a particular wind turbine who have been convinced by activists that they are ill because of the turbine. Research has shown that these illnesses only occur in specific countries such as the UK, but not Germany, and only around specific turbines. The only factor that seems to make sense is that those with illnesses have been convinced they are turbine related because of anti-wind turbine protesters.

Strangely the symptoms, including premature greying and weight gain, took many years to be reported. The sick people seemed to have had no problems for 10 years and then suddenly the symptoms gradually started to appear. When it was pointed out that these symptoms were also associated with ageing, they were unconvinced.
