So, is ‘wind turbine syndrome’ just a psychosis, a figment of the imagination, or a real health crisis? According to numerous studies, the inaudible sound emitted from industrial wind factories contains pulsations that cause severe health impacts in animals and many people.
Professor Mariana Alves-Pereira, an expert in the effects of infrasound on humans. Mariana holds a B.Sc. in Physics from the State University of New York at Stony Brook, an M.Sc. in Biomedical Engineering from Drexel University in Philadelphia, and a Ph.D. in Environmental Sciences from the New University of Lisbon in Portugal. She is currently an Associate Professor affiliated with Lusófona University in Lisbon, where she taught Biophysics and Biomaterials in health science programs, as well as Physics and Hygiene in workplace safety and health programs until 2016. Today, Mariana is co-founder and senior researcher at IARO -International Acoustics Research Organization, headquartered in New Zealand.
Prof. Mariana has been researching the biological response to infrasound and low-frequency noise since 1988, has received three scientific awards, and has authored and co-authored over 50 scientific publications. So, we are very fortunate to have her on the show today. Listen in to discover what wind turbine companies would rather you didn’t know!
