Some people living in the environs of industrial wind turbines (IWTs) report experiencing adverse health effects (AHE/IWT). Reported effects include annoyance, sleep disturbance, stress-related health impacts and reduced quality of life. In some cases, families have effectively abandoned their homes, been billeted by wind energy developers or have negotiated financial agreements with developers.
McMurtry and Krogh presented Diagnostic criteria for adverse health effects in the environs of wind turbines to assist medical practitioners presented with patients reporting AHE/IWTs. Noise and Health published the views of McCunney et al. that presented critical commentary on these AHE/IWT diagnostic criteria as well as its predecessor, which were presented by McMurtry.
In this response, McMurtry and Krogh presented a critical analysis of the commentary contained in the presentation of McCunney et al.
