WindVOiCe, a Self-Reporting Survey: Adverse Health Effects, Industrial Wind Turbines, and the Need for Vigilance Monitoring, Bulletin of Science Technology & Society 2011 31: 334, DOI: 10.1177/0270467611412551,


WindVOiCe is a community based, self reporting health survey that collected data about the adverse health effects being reported by families living near industrial wind turbines.

The WindVOiCe health survey follows the principles of Health Canada’s Canada Vigilance, which encourages all consumers in Canada to self report suspected adverse health effects from consumer and prescription products. Consumers do not have to prove the effect, only suspect it. Under Canada Vigilance, the pharmaceutical industry is obligated by law to submit any reported adverse health effects it receives to Health Canada.
