NOISE


“Silence is loud, deafening.”


Living near the airport, s u b w a y or train, people on the earth, especially in cities, are suffered by different kinds of noise. A t the same time, the n o i s e , which is created by human activities, such as transportation, household chores, industrialization, is hurting the nature and animals by affecting the ecosystem.

NOISE OFF

#SayNope is a campaign inspired by the #MeToo movement and its ability to use social media and the power of communication to bring a terrible travesty to light. Our goal was to gather all the information we could on the harmful effects of noise pollution and to bring awareness to a very real problem that seems to just be ignored.

Man made noise is a relatively recent phenomenon, particularly in evolutionary terms, but scientific studies have demonstrated that it has the potential to adjust behaviour, alter physiology and even restructure animal communities.

How noise pollution is changing animal behaviour by Dr Graeme Shannon The Conversation

�


The scope and magnitude of anthropogenic noise pollution are often much greater than those of natural noise and are predicted to have an array of deleterious effects on wildlife. Recent work on this topic has focused mainly on behavioural responses of animals exposed to noise. Here, by outlining the effects of acoustic stimuli on animal physiology, development, neural function and genetic effects, we advocate the use of a more mechanistic approach in anthropogenic environments. Specifically, we summarise evidence and hypotheses from research on laboratory, domestic and free�living animals exposed to biotic and abiotic stimuli, studied both observationally and experimentally. We hope that this molecular�and cellular�focused literature, which examines the effects of noise on the neuroendocrine system, reproduction and development, metabolism, cardiovascular health, cognition and sleep, audition, the immune system, and DNA integrity and gene expression, will help researchers better understand results of previous work, as well as identify new avenues of future research in anthropogenic environments. Furthermore, given the interconnectedness of these physiological, cellular and genetic processes, and their effects on behaviour and fitness, we suggest that much can be learned from a more integrative framework of how and why animals are affected by environmental noise.

'More than a billion young adults at risk of hearing loss' by James McIntosh Medical News Today

TEENAGERS AND YOUNG ADULTS CAN DO MANY THINGS TO HELP THEMSELVES TOO; MEASURES AS SIMPLE AS KEEPING THE VOLUME OF PERSONAL AUDIO DEVICES DOWN TO SAFE LEVELS. WEARING EAR PLUGS WHEN VISITING AN ENVIRONMENT WITH LOUD SOUND LEVELS IS IMPORTANT, AS IS LIMITING THE AMOUNT OF TIME SPENT ENGAGING IN ACTIVITIES WITH POTENTIALLY UNSAFE SOUND LEVELS. #tears

"These birds can't escape this noise. It's persistent, and it completely screws up their ability to get cues from the environment," Guralnick said. "They're perpetually stressed because they can't figure out what's going on. Just as constant stress tends to degrade many aspects of a person's health, this ultimately has a whole cascade of effects on their physiological health and fitness."
