INTERNATIONAL NOISE AWARENESS DAY APRIL 28 2021
International Noise Awareness Day (INAD) was established by the Center for Hearing and Communication (CHC) to raise awareness about the harmful effects of noise on hearing, health and quality of life.
Today at Ventac we celebrate the 26th Annual International Noise Awareness Day, this year falling on the 28th April, to help raise awareness of the harmful effects of noise on hearing, health, and quality of life.
Why do we care so much about unwanted noise? In the short term, noise causes stress (a well-established fact), and stress is hazardous to our health. In the long term, noise causes hearing loss—and hearing loss itself is detrimental to our health and well-being. A growing body of research links hearing loss with social isolation, depression, an increased risk of falls, and even the onset of Alzheimer’s Disease and other dementias.
Noise is one of the leading causes of hearing loss among the 466 million people around the world living with a moderate to severe hearing loss. While noise exposure can damage the hearing of people of any age, research has shown that young people are increasingly at risk due to recreational activities involving music. In fact, WHO estimates that 1.1 billion young people (aged 12-35 years) are at risk of hearing loss due to exposure to noise in recreational settings.
There are so many reasons to be passionate about turning down the volume on noise, but it all comes down to this:
