Briefly: Dear City Dweller, Noise Diets May Be A Necessity For You

Researchers at Imperial College London and King’s College London found that people who lived near Heathrow were at greater risk of being admitted to hospital or dying prematurely. But here is the good news, experts proposed  people go on “noise diet” by using earplugs in bed and checking  noise level with free application such as SoundMeter+ and Play It Down.
