The Negative Effects of Noise

There has been considerable research on the effects of noise pollution.
Check some of the leading links available on my website and forums. The
research has tended to be narrow, for a very particular type of noise, not
for noise in general. For example the researcher may explore the effects of
airplane noise but disregard all other kinds of noise. It takes a little
common sense to combine these diverse research results into a more general
statement such as "noise pollution is bad".

It is generally understood that noise can have negative psychological
effects, and that is presumably based on some unpublished researches. For
example the FBI and the US Military use it. Remember... the FBI played loud
music at Waco Texas in order to try to disorient the folks inside that
compound. Helicopters played loud music in Viet Nam for the same reason,
trying to disorient the enemy in the jungle below. And I just heard on TV
the other day that USA tank commanders are using the same tactic in Iraq,
playing very loud sounds/noise in an attempt to disorient the enemy. I
believe that's one of the best confirmations that noise pollution is indeed
bad psychologically, in general.

In the most fundamental sense, noise indicates aggression. If you make
noise, other people understand that you are angry, dangerous, something to
be feared. It is an expression of the inner workings of the homo sapiens
beast at its worst.
