Noise pollution is the 2nd largest environmental cause to health problems. Can you believe that! Environmental noise contributes to 48,000 new cases of ischemic heart disease, and 12,000 premature deaths per year, and even animals migrate more to get away from noise. That’s crazy! You can help with noise pollution in your home by upgrading insulation, closing windows, wearing ear plugs(for landscape blowers, construction, etc), turn off electric devices, and lower volume.
