David Michaud Summary

Executive Summary
Dr. Michaud is a researcher with Health Canada. He is the principal investigator for a Health Canada study into the effects of noise generated by wind turbines on human beings.

Dr. Michaud was called as a witness before the Environmental Review Tribunal by counsel for communities and individuals affected by wind farm development in rural areas of Ontario. The primary finding elicited from Dr. Michaud’s testimony is that no studies have been completed in Canada on the dose-response relationship between noise generated by wind turbines and certain health effects. In particular, Dr. Michaud referred to a “knowledge gap” in respect of low frequency noise and infrasound generated by wind turbines. Dr. Michaud cited studies in other jurisdictions which lead him to conclude that there is credible scientific support for an association between noise generated by wind turbines and certain negative health effects.

  2. “in other jurisdictions there is credible scientific support for an association between noise generated by wind turbines and certain negative health effects…” So why are the turbines still running in our jurisdiction??? This is absolutely sickening, inhumane, against our charter of rights.

  3. I think Dr. Michaud is right on the mark. Our findings in this area are sharply focused on infrasound and we’ve found an overwhelming amount of data and independent studies pointing to infrasound as the culprit of wind turbine health problems. We’ve measured abnormally high levels of infrasound in homes near Wind turbines (Norma Schmidt’s home in Port Elgin, ON). Our website (http://kevindooleyinc.com) has videos showing infrasound readings on a heart monitor. Very interesting to see what Health Canada says about its findings on Infrasound exposure specifically. I don’t expect that will be for several more months.
