Can you hear this nowwww?
Professor Alec Salt Ph.D., (Washington University in St Louis) presented his ground-breaking work on the Infrasound and the inner ear at the
where the only Main Stream Media present was Goldhawk Fights Back . He and the hundreds of concerned citizens who attended the conference organized by www.windvigilence.com were not joined by a single official from either the Provincial or Federal level of government, though experts in the many related fields essential to an understanding of the complex issue of how Industrial Wind Turbines (IWT) have an adverse effect on health and wellbeing were assembled from around the globe.
In his presentation “Your ears hear but they don’t tell your brain”, based his on his research in the Department of Otolaryngology Washington University School of Medicine, Dr.Salt concluded that
“Physiologic pathway exists for infrasound to affect the brain
at levels that are not heard. The idea that infrasound effects can be dismissed because they are inaudible is INCORRECT.”
and showed a fascinating micro-video of the actual response of ear canal hair cells to the stimulus of inaudible infrasound.
Since that time Goldhawk has provided a limited media voice for those who are trying to inform the public, Dr. Salt has continued to advance Science, and wind developers have continued to claim there are no adverse health effects from IWT.
Now Dr. Salt has again provided evidence at an international conference of specialists in New York:
from research at the Cochlear Fluids Research Laboratory to prove
Where his statements have included:
1) The ear’s responses to infrasound can be enormous – over 4 times larger than to sounds you can hear presented at even the loudest levels.
2) The ear’s response to low frequency noise at 45 dBA is larger than to wide band noise presented at even the loudest levels.
3) The ear is getting “overstimulated” by low frequency noises at low dBA levels and by infrasound.
4) There are at least 4 scientifically-supported mechanisms by which low frequency sounds that you can’t hear can indeed affect you.
5) And we have more on the way! I have never been more convinced that long-term exposure to low frequency noise is really dangerous.
Should the public not hear about this?
Should your Federal and Provincial Government be allowed to cover their ears?
Should we not demand a moratorium on further wind development until this science and other advances be used to inform the Health Canada Study on Adverse Health Effects of Turbines?
