by Daniel Fink, MD, Chair, The Quiet Coalition
The Quiet Coalition’s Arline Bronzaft, PhD, has been interviewed for the Soundproofist site, a site that provides interviews with individuals speaking about the welcoming sounds in our environment as well as the dangers of noise.
In this interview Dr. Bronzaft notes that the literature supporting the link between adverse impacts of noise on health and well-being has not resulted in legislation adequate to protect people from the dangers of noise. Her grandson, Matt Santoro, discusses how aircraft noise affects him at his home in Queens, New York, and how aircraft noise intruded his classroom when he was in middle school.
For those like me, who prefer to get their information by reading rather than by listening to a podcast, a transcript of that podcast is also available at that site.
In either format, it’s worth spending the time to learn what Arline has to say about the dangers of noise.
