(Grey Bruce) –
The Wind Turbine Study completed by the Grey-Bruce Medical Officer of Health and Sudbury based researcher Doctor Ian Arra has been accepted for publication in an academic journal.
Cuerus — a peer-reviewed journal managed by academics from Stanford University, the University of Chicago, John Hopkins, the American Medical Association — has accepted the document following an external review.
In an email, Doctor Arra says only minor adjustments will be made to the paper.
MOH Doctor Hazel Lynn tells Bayshore Broadcasting News the study was fairly comprehensive, prompting its submission for the peer-review process.
And she says the Cuerus journal is a creditable international organization.
Dr. Lynn and Dr. Arra’s report found that there is a link between wind turbines and specific health concerns, such as headaches and sleeplessness.
The report — which analyzed other peer-reviewed studies — was presented last February to the Grey-Bruce Board of Health, and was then submitted to the Ontario Ministry of Health.
