Some researchers call the disease a 'nocebo effect,' meaning that people just begin to believe something completely harmless is making them terribly ill. Others seem to claim health issues are a result of the person's general dislike for wind turbines. However, most all researchers agree that the area needs to be studied more, as all research so far seems to be flawed.
However, this isn't stopping Australia from spending $2.5 million to find out for sure. Two grants have been awarded to provide money to study this 'disease.'
Flinder's University of Southern Australia is the first recipient of this grant. They are planning to study how wind turbine noise affects people's sleep and quality of life in general.
Researchers at the University of New South Wales received the second grant. They will be focusing their studies on broader social and environmental impacts of wind farms on people who live near them.
Both plan to proceed with studies in labs and directly at people's houses.
Australia also promises to continue to fund this project for the next five years. This project is following a previous Australian study on the "disease" which proved that there was "no direct evidence" that said wind farms led to changes in health.
While waiting for the evidence of this project, Australia continues to install wind power across the country. Australia had 75 wind farms that house around 2,000 turbines, as of 2014. It now amounts to 4% of their electricity sources.
So what do you all think? Does wind turbine syndrome exists? Do you think it's all just a bunch of malarkey? Or does this area need scientific research for the sake of the human race? Tell us below!
