Wash Post: 'Noise Impacts Health, Happiness'

Reinforcing the 8th and H Street NE community's position on long hours of amplified speech, the Washington Post's health section today examines the health impact of chronic noise.

The story, "Noise Pollution Takes Toll on Health and Happiness," reports that "both intensity and duration of noise exposure determine the potential for damage. The prolonged affects of noise can trigger the body's stress response, infusing the body with high levels of stress hormones and creating chronic stress that extends far beyond your delicate ears."
