Deformed lambs in Australia
“The number of deformed lambs increased over the period of the wind farm operating near our property. The lambing rate in our merino stock decreased to a rate of 37 per cent from 85 per cent prior to the wind farms being established.”
Wind turbines hell to live near, residents tell Portland hearing
By EVERARD HIMMELREICH April 1, 2015, 4 a.m.
“LIFE near turbines is hell, according to a panel of south-west property owners who have battled against wind farms for the best part of a decade.
“Several wind farm opponents expressed their anguish and frustration with energy companies to the Select Committee on Turbines which was instigated by crossbench senators six months ago to examine the renewable energy source.
“The panel held its first hearing in Portland this week and senators met with farmers and other property owners concerned about the health impacts of living near wind turbines.
“Glenthompson residents Bill and Sandy Rogerson addressed the committee about their concerns regarding their personal health and the well-being of their livestock.
“ “There is a real need for all wind turbines to be shut down at night across Australia,” Mr Rogerson told the senate panel. “Within months of the wind turbines operating near our farm, we both experienced health problems.
“The number of deformed lambs increased over the period of the wind farm operating near our property. The lambing rate in our merino stock decreased to a rate of 37 per cent from 85 per cent prior to the wind farms being established.” ”

Peer-reviewed medical studies on infrasound, as published by the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health:
Infrasound may cause damage to the central nervous system through the Ca²⁺‑mediated apoptotic pathway in hippocampal neurons.
Infrasound can cause impairment of learning and memory.
Infrasound can cause avoidance reactions (fleeing) in salmons.
Infrasound can induce oxidative damage in rat cardiomyocytes by inactivating PPAR-γ.

Infrasound at 2 and 6 Hz stimulates bacteria proliferation, but inhibits at it 4, 8, and 10 Hz.
Evidence that glial cell-expressed TRPV4 is a potential key factor responsible for infrasound-induced neuronal impairment.
Epigallocatechin gallate can be used as a promising drug for the treatment of infrasound-induced central nervous system damage.
Infrasound promotes proliferation and inhibits apoptosis in bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells.

Not to forget the Russian review of scientific literature on the health effects of infrasound, where we find these interesting quotes, on page 4:
“I – Infrasound of > 185 dB, which is of fatal danger (the variable pressure of such levels can induce pulmonary alveolar rupture).”
“IV – Infrasound of < 120 dB, which is not health harmful if its exposure time is less than several minutes; reactions of the long-time exposure are the subject for future studies.”
