TORONTO (AP) Opponents of wind farms are hailing Health Canada's decision to study the possible connection Adidas Primeknit Ultra Boost
Federal Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq announced Tuesday that Ottawa will conduct the study, which "is in response to questions from residents living near wind farms about possible health effects of low frequency noise generated by wind turbines."
"People have to go in their basements to sleep or they have to take a pup tent and sleep in the yard. But they can only go on doing that for so long," she said, noting that up to 40 families in Ontario have left their rural homes as a result of turbines erected nearby.
"These are ordinary, hard working people. They would not make up these stories in a million years. They're trying to protect their land, their homes, their children, the legacy that they've built Adidas Neo 10k and received from their families."
The $1.8 million study will initially focus on residents in 2,000 dwellings near eight to 12 wind turbine installations. There are about 140 such land based wind farms in Canada, most of them in Ontario and Quebec.
"I hope it will be independent and at an arm's length" from the government, said Lange, whose opposition to wind farms began with a fight to stop a proposed installation of the energy producing towers in Lake Ontario, offshore from her east Toronto neighborhood.

Health Canada said researchers will be conducting face to face interviews with residents, as well as taking physical measurements such as blood pressure and heart rate, and assessing noise levels both inside and outside some of the homes.
The study is being conducted by a team of more than 25 experts in acoustics, health assessment and medicine, including four international advisers.
Sherri Lange, CEO of North American Platform Against Wind Power said she is encouraged to see the federal government undertaking a study on the safety of wind turbines.
"Currently, there is insufficient evidence to conclude whether or not there is a relationship between exposure to the noise from wind turbines and adverse human health effects, although community annoyance and other concerns have been reported to Health Canada and in the scientific literature," said Health Canada.
Earlier this year concern about health the health effects of wind turbines proposed for Vermont near the Canadian border helped lead to the cancellation of proposal to build two turbines in Derby Line, across from Stanstead, Quebec.
"Health Canada's new study will contribute to the scientific literature and our knowledge base, and we appreciate the opportunity for stakeholders to review the draft methodology and study design and we look forward to undertaking such a review and providing our feedback," president Robert Hornung said in a statement.
The Canadian Wind Energy Association, representing organizations and individuals involved in the development and application of wind energy products and services, said scientific evidence "clearly demonstrates" that energy capturing turbines do not have an impact on human health.
Lange contends that exposure to low Adidas Los Angeles Shoes Pink
frequency noise and vibrations in particular, inaudible infrasound from wind turbines can lead to sleep disorders, headaches, depression, anxiety and even blood pressure changes.
Canadian wind opponents welcome noise study
between noise generated by the towering turbines and adverse health effects reported by people living close to them.
Some residents will be fitted with devices to monitor sleep disturbances for seven consecutive nights, and hair samples will be taken to measure levels of the stress hormone cortisol over the previous 90 days, said a Health Canada scientist involved in the study.
conducting the study will listen to the stories of people, many of them farmers, who say they are suffering ill health linked to wind energy towers.
