Is city noise making us sick?

Close your eyes and open your ears. What do you hear? Do the sounds you hear bother you? And, more importantly, do you have control over those sounds? As more and more the population migrates to urban environments - the urban population of the world has quadrupled since 1960. In fact, unwanted noise has become an increasingly critical problem. Join Glad You Asked host Joss Fong as she explores how noise pollution is becoming an ever greater concern for our health, how the negative effects of noise are unequally distributed, and how we can learn to find peace.

I’m 31 years old. First time I ever experienced complete silence was a few years ago when I got to go to a cabin for a few days for the first time in my life. It was so peaceful I couldn’t believe it. I want to leave city life so bad.

I live pretty far out of the city, but at night I hear a low pitched rumble? Kind of like a large semi running but it's like it's very far away? There isn't any construction work or any facility that makes that noise when I'm outside. But it seems constant and only at night?

I live in a small city in rural Canada - We have a problem with biker culture, loud "mufflers" and toxic masculinity! Another thing I notice is the impact on the animals - there is strong evidence that even singular loud sounds, like a low flying helicopter, can disrupt bird nesting/reproduction. There are animals and beings near and far being impacted by even small city noise pollution.

As someone who has Auditory Processing Disorder where if I'm talking to someone, say, next to a busy street, I sometimes will focus on the sounds of the cars going by, birds, or other conversations than the conversation that I'm having with the person in front of me. And I have to constantly ask people to repeat themselves. So yeah, it'd be great if cities and even some suburbs could turn their volumes down.

I'm so thankful I live in a secluded subdivision in the city. The only sounds we have are of birds. M We're close enough to the highway to not have to use a car, but far enough to not hear the noise. I hope that in some way, land developers start thinking of what's best for the tenants/owners rather than maxing out the land and putting them dangerously near noise sources.

In rural areas, i prefer the sound of chickens, cows, dogs., And loud pipes of motors. They have same amount of noise levels, but the occurences of these noises are not always there. Silence is still dominant, on these areas. Overall, it gives me more alertness where these noise came from. Ultimately better for health, and lesser for brain process to filter what we want to hear.

California now has this thing called "car communities" now. It's nothing but car enthusiasts that modify their cars to make them as loud as possible. Maybe they're overcompensating for something, I don't know. My family live right across two gas stations a couple of fast food stands and a convenient store, and those surely attract many of these types of people even passed midnight. The noise gets very disruptive and loud when many of us are supposed to be in deep sleep by then. It gets really tiring and sickening.

It's all white noise at this point. Seattle is relatively quiet I would say but yes, we get morning noises like trucks backing up and right now, the cleaner is cleaning the public areas of the building, and the vaccum cleaning is right outside my door right now. But it's not ridiculous. And we hike a lot - so it's mostly natural noise on the weekend.

I live on high way where all kinds of cars go through non stop and I feel very highly related to this. We’ve living here almost 3 years amazing area to live low crime area but the only bad thing is sound noise of cars and trucks that’s so annoying. The house we live in is absolutely beautiful and big and not many houses in London you could find but the rent we pay out family and the noise we get is definitely not worth 100% so we will move out. The noise it still hasn’t effected our sleeping pattern we sleep normal hours sometimes even myself I sleep make than normal hours up to 7 hours or sometimes 10 hours when am tired and for that it hasn’t effected our sleeping pattern yet. Idk if it’s something to do getting used to but it became normal to us that we don’t even talk about it anymore

Even at night can’t relax, the neighborhood where i live almost everyone has a dog, i know america dog culture is to toxic. The constant barking every night and we can’t walk outside at night or exercise anymore in the neighborhood without dogs threatening passengers and that’s only those with leash or behide the yard and there has been attacks from kids and elders from even small dogs since unfortunately dogs see them as easy prey and their narcissistic owners still fight to get their mutt back, what a time to be alive..

Nowadays, more people around means more potential for COVID-19 infections. As I watch the series, I’m constantly surprised by how close these types of issues are related to race and poverty. USA (like many other countries) seems to be a country for the riches and not necessarily for “all of its people”.

Thank you for the video! I think the biggest thing that this video seems to not delve deeply into is that the noise in it of itself is not the producer of health issues (besides the auditory damage that occurs from high decibel noises). The noise creates a psychological (and sometimes physical response i.e. waking up at night as the video touched upon) response in the human body. The professor talked about our fight or flight response, but we also have a ''rest and digest'' response which is the opposite of fight or flight. With our ears being our alert systems, it alerts us of loud noises and kicks in our flight or fight responses. But because we're being overstimulated all the time in cities, we can't 'rest and digest' properly. With constant stressors in the environment, and little opportunity to relax, it makes us circulate more cortisol (stress hormone), and being too stressed is linked to higher likelihood of cardiovascular disease. So yes, the city noise is making us sick, but its because our body's alert system is constantly being overstimulated/stressed.

I really like working in the city, but I find it so relaxing having absolute silence when I'm home sleeping. Sometimes it's even harder to fall asleep because it's so silent :). It sounds funny, but the birds chirping the whole day is quiet annoying sometimes :D. They are right next to my window, so they're really loud. However, I take the birds over a highway or airplane, I guess :D.

What's supposed to be Background sound affects , aren't now, it's thru out the dialogue, they are not necessary thru all the content , it's overkill, it's very distracting and annoying, Why can't there just be a person speaking? Plus the type of sound affects make it's especially bad, blippity.

Great doc, speaking of noise , I repeatedly have written vox. Background music and or sound affects should be occasionally I. The background by vox has affects thruout the content, it's so distracting. It's overkill. What happened to just listening to a person speak. Thruout your content in this video alone, there's always music / affects on top of the dialogue, it makes it so hard to consentrate on the content, and the type of music affects are the worst, blipping, tinkering, it's the worst, most of th et I even I have to put subtitles on.🇨🇦

Why Americans think America is the only thing in the world. The whole world is a mess now, the problem is work and school hours, it had been proven scientifically that human brain isn’t really active until 10 am. We overwork ourselves all our life and always feel tired from a young age. Work time should not start early and finish late, most of people just waste time and their life spending many hours to work and school and at the end we really only focus three hours during whole work time. The weekend should be three days, here in east asia it’s worst… to much pressure

I live in the Mission District in San Francisco, right in the heart of the Mission. I wake up 2-3 times a night mostly due to 4:00am trash trucks coming through the neighborhood, then again at 5:00am when street sweeping comes through. Other times it's construction work that starts early or random cars/people being loud. I can't help but to think that this is most likely not a problem for those who live in more affluent parts of this city, which is literally a few blocks over from where I live. I bet Bernal Heights doesn't have their trash truck swing by until the neighborhood has woken up and can "handle" that noise. Yet this city profits so much of the "liveliness" of where I live.
