Non-auditory Effects of Noise Pollution on Health: A Perspective
- 16 Downloads
Noise is an ever increasing product of our environment. The increased noise levels cause auditory as well as non-auditory effects on health. The relationship between noise and hearing loss has been well established. However non-auditory effects of noise on health though known are understudied and underreported. Hence awareness about the prevalence of these deleterious effects, its prevention and appropriate remedial measures is the need of the hour.
