NOISE AS A GENERAL HEALTH PROBLEM

LAERM ALS EIN ALLGEMEINES GESUNDHEITSPROBLEM

THE LARGE NUMBER OF REPORTED CASES OF PARTIAL DEAFNESS DUE TO NOISE MAKES IT NECESSARY TO INCREASE OUR KNOWLEDGE OF THE OCCURRENCE AND DIAGNOSTIC CHARACTERISTICS OF SUCH DEAFNESS. THE FIRST WORLD-WIDE NOISE PREVENTION CONFERENCE IN DUBROVNIK UNDERLINED THE IMPORTANCE OF THE DANGER TO HEALTH FROM NOISE IN CIVILIZED COMMUNITIES. THE NOISE OF OUR CIVILIZATION WILL MAKE US HARD OF HEARING AFTER A TIME AND THUS MAN'S MOST IMPORTANT ORGAN OF COMMUNICATION WILL BE UNSUITABLE FOR USE. CIVILIZED MAN RISKS LOSING THE ADVANCES OF CIVILIZATION THROUGH LOSS OF THE ABILITY TO COMMUNICATE.
