    WIND SOUND IS HEARTBEAT QUIET Acoustics group says wind turbine infrasound less than a heart-beat

    Emma Fitzpatrick, 16 September 2013 (Renew Economy)

    [T]he Association of Australian Acoustical Consultants (AAAC) stated that the current levels of infrasound emitted by wind turbines…are already in abundance in our natural environment from sources such as wind, waves and earthquakes. People also generate infrasound through breathing and heartbeats…Mechanical sources of infrasound originate from sources like aircrafts, traffic, and fossil fuel generation …. and wind turbines. Infrasound emissions from wind turbines have previously been thought to cause adverse health effects such as breathing problems, digestive issues, headaches and nausea…[T]he AAAC concluded that infrasound levels around wind farms are no higher than the levels around where people live, work and sleep…” click here for more
