Do wind turbines cause cancer? Yes or no? President Trump made the remark at a fundraiser for the National Republican Congressional Committee. President Trump attacked wind power as an energy source. "If you have a windmill anywhere near your house, congratulations, your house just went down 75 percent in value," President Trump told his fellow Republicans April 2. "And they say the noise causes cancer." When asked for evidence that wind turbine noise causes cancer from the White House there was no response to date.
The health impact of wind turbines has been a topic of much discussion. The Australian parliament formed a Select Committee on Wind Turbines. The group was sympathetic to personal reports of discomfort, and the list of ailments it heard was long: "tinnitus, raised blood pressure, heart palpitations, tachycardia, stress, anxiety, vertigo, dizziness," and more.
There were zero instances of cancer. In the 2015 final report, the committee said more evidence was needed to establish a link to any illness.
Wind turbines are a green source of energy and are gaining popularity around the world. Obviously, they do not produce any emissions which would make them seem to be a healthy source of energy, but the president does not seem to agree. What do you think? Do wind turbines cause cancer? Yes or no? We want to know your opinion on this hotly contested topic.
