Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - April 11, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa IO Hie Cedar Rapids Gazette: Thurs., April ll, 1971 For Better Health Increased Noise Levels Have Endangered The Ear and Mind By Dr. S.L. Andelman The increasing noise level in the modern world has brought greater hazards to the ear, our nervous system and our mental health. In order to understand how noise affects your system, you need to comprehend the term decibel (db). One db is determined by a scientific measurement about the faintest aound the ear can hear. Dr. S. L. Andelman can stand 90 db for eight hours if you then shut off the noise. But for every increase of 5 db. you must cut your exposure time in half. At 95 db, for example, you should avoid exposing your ears for more than four hours at a time. Earmuffs If you work in an occupation where the noises are over 85db. creases tremendously.
