While German activists are growing hysterical over fine particle emissions from today’s relatively cleaner diesel automobiles, the German Allgemeine Zeitung here reports that researchers have determined that low-frequency infrasound from wind turbines indeed do have a negative impact on the human heart. Infrasound from wind turbines can affect heart health, new findings show. Image: DrJanaOfficial – CC BY-SA 4.0 But no German court or regulatory agency seems at all concerned about it. Recently a working group specializing in cardiac, thoracic and vascular surgery of the Mainz-based University Medical Center provided for a surprise with their research results from studies looking at infrasound’s impact on heart muscle. Impacts human health Infrasound has a frequency under 20 Hz and thus is not audible to the human ear. However the low frequency sound is physically perceptible at high sound pressure and lead to health consequences, a German medical researcher said. Wind turbines convert 40 percent of the wind’s energy into power and 60 percent into infrasound, thus making them a real potential threat to human health. The problem with wind turbines is that the infrasound exposure is long-term and can travel great distances. Journalist Michael Bermeitinger interviewed Professor Christian-Friedrich Vahl, Department of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery (HTG) of the University Medical Center Mainz, on the subject....
