Noise pollution causing deafness World became more and more civilized during past centuries and noise pollution became a serious problem our days. It is a huge issue to everyone and especially for people who live in big and crowded cities. It is not only airports, cars or factories that pollute noise, but also such things as computers or printers can distract people. Even pleasurable things, such as listening to loud music, can damage our hearing. It is proven that noise has different negative influences on people. It not only damages our hearing but also affects our behavior. In this research I will try to prove that noise pollution is a very dangerous thing that can not only distract people but also make them deaf. According Encyclopaedia, noise is “sound that interferes with other sound that are being listened to”. Every day we hear different noises. Big cities are the main sources of noise pollution. People invented engines, amplifiers, speakers and other things to make our life easier and more pleasurable. Noise from “road traffic, jet planes, jet skis, garbage trucks, construction equipment, manufacturing processes, lawn mowers, leaf blowers, and boom boxes, to name a few, are among unwanted sounds that are routinely broadc
roadcasted into the air”(Clearinghouse, web). However, these inventions not only help us but also make damage to our ears and behaviour. It is obvious, that noise pollution reached the enormous level now and there is no way we can stop it. It is impossible to stop factories, planes or cars. According T.J. Winpenny in his book Values of the Environment, we have to choose between health and well being on the one hand, and the commercial and public services, on the other. Generally, it is very important to know how noise affects us and how can we protect ourselves from the harm it is doing. No matter what kind of noise it is, it still affects us in a similar way. It is scientifically proved that the noise level of 85 decibels can damage hearing if the noise continues for eight hours or more (Noise watch, web.) Loud noise wrecks hearing by damaging the delicate mechanisms of the inner ear that convert sound information into nerve signals. The most common thing for people who are often exposed to loud noise is tinnitus or ringing in the ears. Reports of tinnitus experienced by young people exposed to loud music have increased three times since the early 1980s. The report found that “6.8% of people not regularly exposed to loud music of 85 decibels or over suffer from tinnitus compared to 20% of people who are”.(Noise watch, web) Symptoms in some case
