Noise Kills

Noise Pollution is killing your healthy life time.

It’s one of the leading causes of hearing loss and other serious health issues. The environmental noise from planes, trains and vehicles, as well as other city sources could cause health problems such as stress, poor concentration, productivity losses in the workplace, and communication difficulties and fatigue from lack of sleep. In 2015, the World Health Organization warned that 1.1 billion young people are at risk of hearing loss because of personal audio devices, such as smartphones, and damaging levels of sound at entertainment venues like electronic dance music festivals, where noise levels can top 120 decibels for hours.
