There is a deafening silence that comes along with the deafening noises all around us.
The medical establishment is not making any noise or sounding the alarm about this problem.
This incredible article will point out a constant problem that occurs in our daily lives.
Ample scientific evidence is conclusive to find that loud noises can be very harmful to all aspects of human health. If we live in a big, city or not, noise pollution can be anywhere in the modern world.
The ill effects of loud noise on the human body is shown to increase from the amount of sound levels we are exposed to.
A noisy workplace or other noisy environment can cause serious health problems like hearing impairments, ischemic heart disease, sleep disturbances, hypertension or simply annoyance which causes stress and mental problems, which in turn further effect the overall health.

In a single day, people living in an urban area can experience massive levels of detrimental sounds.
It can come from countless places like shopping malls, recreational centers, walking down the street, or even a person’s own home.
The busy world around us, doesn’t give us a chance to have any control to halt these irritating noises.
We are constantly bombarded with traffic noise, sirens, and loud music wherever we may go. Many places that were once quiet and peaceful are now centers of constant unhealthy decibel levels.
This noise is known to implement diseases like tinnitus, vasoconstriction, as well as negative effects on the cardiovascular system and circulation.
Elevated sounds can even be a gateway to one’s past.
For example former or current military personnel might have jolting flashes of negative memories, when they hear things like firecrackers, loud tire explosions, or other crashing sounds, that may bring them back to the battlefield.
Also constant exposure to noise can cause significant hearing loss, amongst a country’s population.
Scientists have discovered that people from this generation, are more likely to lose their hearing capacity when they grow old, which is three times greater than their grandparents before them.
Studies also show that noise exposure over 70 dB(A), is associated with major diseases and other medical complications.
To get by in this noisy world, we have to adapt ourselves to try to find an easy way out of this problem. But no easy way exists.
We can start by knowing our limits. Be nice to your ears and they will be nice to you.
A couple of DJs gave us a hint about the proper sound levels they can withstand. They told us they can support about 8 hours of sounds at 90 decibels, 4 hours at 95 decibels and only two hours for 100 decibels.
They also told us to keep track of our heart rate, and if we notice our levels increasing, we have to find a quiet spot to take a break.
If we can’t pay attention to our heart, at least we can look at our phone. There are at least a dozen applications that can measure the sounds around you, acting as a warning signal to tell us to move away from that spot.
The ultimate solution for most sensitive people can be ear plugs. You can always carry them with.
They will always be of help to you when you need it most.
