    Next, all contracts need to be cancelled and these turbines need to be turned off forever, to prevent even more cumulative and irreversible harm from LFN and infrasound radiation.
    When an expert on LFN and infrasound, whose findings confirm neurological and cardio vascular harm, says she would not live within 20 km from wind turbines, it leaves people who have been forced against their will to have LFN and infrasound invading their bodies in their own homes- in their beds– feeling frightened.
