How Noise can Negatively Affect Your Health

Did you know that noise pollution can increase your risk for serious health conditions, including heart disease?

 

It’s said that even a 5 decibel noise decrease could reduce the pervasiveness of high blood pressure by 1.4% and coronary heart disease by 1.8%*.

 

It’s not just loud traffic or planes that are the cause of noise-related health issues. Everyday sounds, such as lawnmowers and loud music can also contribute to an unhealthy exposure of noise..
