The news of the negative and ill effects of the electromagnetic fields has been circulating for years. Several studies and researches have strengthened the claim proved that there are ill effects of the wind turbines and power lines on the health of the people. It is evident from the report published by World Health Organization in 2007 that extremely low-frequency electromagnetic fields cause health impacts and the causes children to be prone to leukemia (World Health Organization, 2007). The supporting theory to such assumption is the wind turbine syndrome, which is gauging the mental status of the people living around the wind farms or overhead power lines of high voltage (Schmidt and Klokker, 2014).
A case study on Jane Davis (a retired NHS manager) had revealed a darker side to the wind turbines health impact. The noise caused by the rotating blades of the wind turbines, which is 930m away led to the occurrence of pneumonia in her husband and chronic heart attacked suffered by her father-in-law. They lived in Spalding, Lincolnshire was the noise seemed to be unbearable for her family as they suffered from chest problems, constant headaches, atrial fibrillation, ear nuisance, heart attack, tinnitus and hearing loss.
Jane claims it to be no coincidence as none of her family had any pre-existing heart disease or ill under any circumstances (Pagano, 2009). The evidence could be huge though not concentrated in one region, but one cannot shove off the threat of health effects due to the close proximity of the families to wind turbines and power lines. Health is considered to be an asset of humans and even slightest of discomfort could not be overlooked and hence with the combination of the plethora of evidence, the notion that living near wind turbines and power lines are bad for the human health can be agreed upon (Wahlquist, 2015).
