    windmill noise cancer

    Was just wondering what steps everyone takes to prevent getting the cancer when they are near electric windmills. I understand that the noise is a terrible cancer risk. Probably on par with inhaling the fumes from a coal power plant. Or going to Chernobyl. At least that's what some people say. The smartest people undoubtedly.

    I've even heard that there's a golf course in scotland where virtually everyone is catching the cancer because of windmills.

    Help?

    Oh it is Trump you are making fun of. That’s what I get for not watching news.

    Well, to be fair, Trump did preface it with “they say...”. Yada yada noise yada yada cancer. Technically it is “they “who claim windmill noise causes cancer according to our president.

    Cancelled a trip to Holland. It's not worth dying for.

    As for golf courses, I avoid the windmill when miniature golfing and only do the other 8 holes. Against it's just not worthy dying for.
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    As a person of Dutch descent, I must say that this is no laughing matter.

    My take is that it's something Trump has promoted after hearing it from Rush. He also claimed they kill so many birds that you don't want to walk under them. Far as I can tell both are basically false and another ploy to promote fossil fuels. There have been plenty of articles in the news lately to fact check things.

    We're more likely to get cancer from noise from windbags.
