To ask the Scottish Government whether it is aware of the work of Dr Nuno Castelo Branco and his finding that prolonged vibroacoustic exposure could lead to a thickening adaptation of the heart valves, pericardium and lungs.


Answered by Maureen Watt (03/03/2016):

The Scottish Government is aware there are researchers who have defined the condition vibroacoustic disease and undertaken research on this issue. In line with our approach to other public health issues, we receive evidence-based advice from Health Protection Scotland, our national health protection experts, and also from Public Health England. They provide the Scottish Government with expert assessment of the scientific literature available on this topic, and keep it under review.
