No sci­en­tific ev­i­dence to back up claims

The Oban Times - - Letters - Jen­nifer Baker, Lis­more.

Sir, Re­gards the let­ter of Au­gust 20, Ms Met­calfe has mis­un­der­stood the point of my orig­i­nal let­ter.

I was not deny­ing the the­ory that wind­mills may cause neu­ro­log­i­cal dis­or­ders, epilepsy or sui­cide - per­haps they do.

I was high­light­ing the fact that nowhere in this ar­ti­cle was there any ro­bust sci­en­tific ev­i­dence to back up these alarm­ing as­ser­tions. Such ar­ti­cles should be as­sid­u­ous in de­mon­strat­ing rigour when pre­sent­ing sci­en­tific or med­i­cal ma­te­rial.
