Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
Thank you for this article. I have been talking to people about this issue for years, and I couldn't have put it better myself.
When noise becomes so ubiquitous, most people learn to 'tune it out' -- and aren't aware of how much this nonstop audio assault
continues to be destructive to their physical and mental well-being, and to the society at large.
It took a long hard effort to educate the public to the dangers of secondhand smoke, but eventually that campaign was a success.
We need a similar effort to educate people about the damage being done by noise.
