Sound Is Polluting Too
We are living in an industrial era where even residential areas are not free from pollution, sow more seeds to make your city greener; we all hear this all the time and we do try to act upon it but unfortunately the quantum of sowing seeds is far lower than what is igniting in the air by these industries and that is known as pollution. We all have cars, some have two or more in one house (each car for one person) and we all are aware of the fact that car fumes are the primary source of the damage to the air and cleanliness of the environment.
We all are so busy in pointing pollution generated by the industries, cars and bikes but; pollution in a wider connotation under which so many things comes and other than fumes, dust and bad bacteria pollution there is another type of pollution known as ‘sound pollution’ imagine the honking habit of ours (horns in the car) where we all know that there is no space of going ahead, still we ‘honk’ all the time just by the way. Fellas! That is the primary source of sound pollution. Just like the way normal pollution impacts the health of the society, sound pollution do the same it is even dangerous (as it impacts the behavior of the brain), sleep disturbances, hearing issues, tinnitus, hypertension and sometimes diabetes; definitely this list may go on and on. In real we don’t pay attention to what is actually harmful. According to a study conducted in University of Manchester noise/sound pollution can be defined as the waves of sound that is usually annoying and considered unpleasant to human ears and brain, something unacceptable to the human ears for example: standby generators are on to provide electricity but the cost of that electricity is a lot more than just diesel fuel and that is your mental health. Further that study states that, this irritating behavior of humans and low tolerance level towards (even) pity issues of life is a result of what we are discussing under the term sound pollution. Technically or you say scientifically sound has some specific types such as: Continuous sound, sound with interruptions, impulsive, low and high frequency sound. In our daily life we all encounter these types almost daily some are acceptable for the human ear that some of us need sound insulation Melbourne. For example: there are certain types of music which doesn’t sound good to one ear and to some other human it is pleasing (for music it is personal choice or preference).
As an education human being of the society, if we cannot do anything about any kind of pollution; it is our deem duty to at least not accelerate the pace of the harmful things. We pray for the next generation to breath in an environment free from all intoxicants and pollution.
