The purpose of VOW© is to establish a network of victims suffering adverse health effects due to wind turbine complexes to provide mutual support for victims.
Some residents living in the vicinity of a wind farm are suffering from adverse health affects and disturbed living conditions. People from across Ontario who welcomed wind turbines into their community are now coming forward with questions and concerns and may not know where to turn.
If you, or anyone you know is having difficulty,
please call toll free 1-888-700-5655
or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sometimes it’s important to have someone to talk to who understands.
Your call will be kept totally confidential.
From Dr. Pierpont’s Testimony before the New York State Legislature Energy Committee:
The symptoms start when local turbines go into operation and resolve when the turbines are off or when the person is out of the area. The symptoms include:
1) Sleep problems: noise or physical sensations of pulsation or pressure make it hard to go to sleep and cause frequent awakening.
2) Headaches which are increased in frequency or severity.
3) Dizziness, unsteadiness, and nausea.
4) Exhaustion, anxiety, anger, irritability, and depression.
5) Problems with concentration and learning.
6) Tinnitus (ringing in the ears).
Not everyone near turbines has these symptoms. This does not mean people are making them up; it means there are differences among people in susceptibility. These differences are known as risk factors. Defining risk factors and the proportion of people who get symptoms is the role of epidemiologic studies. These studies are under way. Chronic sleep disturbance is the most common symptom. Exhaustion, mood problems, and problems with concentration and learning are natural outcomes of poor sleep. See Dr. Pierpont’s credentials here
