That noise is part of our life is an indisputable fact. Traffic, music, plays, screams, electrical appliances, children playing are just some of the causes that make us unable to be disconnected, even when we are in our own home.
This excess noise generates a phenomenon known as noise pollution, which WHO points out as one of the four environmental factors that have the most significant impact on people’s health. The European Environment Agency estimates that more than 100 people are exposed to harmful levels of sound in the European Union, which increases the risk of cardiovascular disease, cognitive impairment, sleep disorders, hypertension, and stress. In fact, according to the European Commission, this phenomenon is associated with more than 10,000 cases of premature death each year.
