The reason behind this high percent is due to the exposure to loud levels of noise; this shows how harmful noise is. Exposure to high intensity of noise can cause permanent hearing damage by causing strong vibration in the inner ear, which can lead to serious damage to the ear. Common types of noise that everyone exposure to in his daily life can cause serious damage to the ear, for example, construction sites, airports, or factories. However, people -especially workers in these places- can use noise protectors which can reduce the level of noise by 35 dB. Bronzaft, A. (n.d.). A Quieter School:An Entriched Learning Environment.

In addition, continuous exposure to high intensity of noise induces stress, which can cause high blood pressure and muscle tension. When people exposed to noise, it is disturbing at first, however after a while they stop noticing it and it becomes part of the background. However, even when we are no longer noticing this noise, the physical effects continue to
