In recent years, many studies have been conducted on understanding the effects of excessive noise. The latest results have shown that noise pollution can negatively affect your productivity and healthy by distracting and causing stress.
One study examined children exposed to airport noise and found that their reading ability and long-term memory was impaired. Those working in noisy office environments have also been found to be less cognitively motivated and to have higher stress levels. However, the most severe problem is the impact it has on our health. Because sound pollution can trigger the body’s stress response, one of its significant health effects is chronic stress. As a result, noise pollution has also been linked with health problems such as heart disease, high blood pressure, and stroke.
