#SAYNOPE to Noise Pollution

NOISE GRAPHIC FINAL2d


daAsset 1@4x.pngMost of us are very used to the sounds we hear in everyday life. Loud music, the television, people talking on their phone, the traffic and even pets barking in the middle of the night. All of these have become a part of the urban culture and rarely disturb us. However, when the sound of the television keeps you from sleeping all night or the traffic starts to give you a headache, it stops becoming just noise and start turning into noise pollution. For many of us, the concept of pollution is limited to nature and resources. However, noise that tends to disrupt the natural rhythm of life makes for one solid pollutant.

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.
