Noise pollution health effects
At least 1 in 5 Europeans are currently exposed to noise levels exceeding 55 dB considered harmful to their health.
Long-term exposure to noise has significant health impacts, including heart disease, sleep disturbance and noise-induced hearing loss.

Noise pollution affects the health and well-being of terrestrial and marine wildlife.
Animals use sound to navigate, attract mates, find food, and avoid predators. As a consequence, noise pollution threatens their ability to survive.
