Do wind turbines harm human health? No, says the Ontario Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Arlene King, in a report released today.

Claims of adverse health effects have been taken very seriously, as the Ministry of the Environment evaluates numerous applications for renewable energy approvals under the Green Energy Act. The  Medical Officer of Health’s report is an important part of this response, and contains an extensive review of published literature on claims of adverse health effects due to wind energy. Not only do such claims lack credible evidence, they also lack “biological plausibility”, according to the MOH.

In addition, the MOE has endowed a research chair at the University of Waterloo. Waterloo was selected by the Ontario Council of Universities as the best University to host research on the health impacts of renewable energy.
