The Fond du lac County Board of Health is asking the state to fund a comprehensive study to determine if wind turbines can have an adverse impact on human health. At their meeting this week the board voted unanimously in favor of a resolution asking the state to do the study after several residents in the town of Marshfield complained that wind turbines have negatively affected their health. "There's not convincing evidence yet that makes it an absolute yes and so further study needs to happen," County Executive Al Buechel said. "Its not only the wind turbines in Wisconsin where the people are demonstrating these kinds of problems, its around the country."
Buechel says the full county board will take up the resolution
at a future meeting.
