Good morning to everyone in this room. I would like to thank the principal, the teachers, and my dear friends for allowing me to speak to you today about noise pollution. One sort of pollution we deal with daily is noise pollution. Our health is significantly impacted by noise pollution, which also has the potential to endanger our lives.
The World Health Organization considers noise pollution to be a serious health problem. Chronic exposure to noise pollution can have negative health effects and be hazardous. Noise pollution is defined as noise that is over 65 dB and harms both people and animals. The unit used to measure sound is the decibel.
A person’s ears may become injured if they are exposed to sounds with a decibel level of 85 or greater. Animals in the water are increasingly suffering from noisy settings, in addition to injuring those on shore. In the same way that sound waves are launched into the water and bounce off things to return echoes to the ship, sonar operates similarly to echolocation.
A person’s hearing and mental health may suffer due to noise pollution. Hypertension, elevated blood pressure, and other stress-related health problems may result. Your sleep pattern may be hampered by noise levels over 45 decibels (dB). The WHO recommends a noise level of no more than 30 dB.
Due to several factors that cause many people to have health problems, noise pollution is the most prevalent issue that humans encounter. Long-term benefits for both individuals and the environment can result from adhering to norms. Lowering noise pollution is the ultimate goal to improve the environment. Thank you.
