They're great quotes, including the last one. Now if we can just get the
present Surgeon General to come out with a similar but more specific
statement about noise and its health effects and make mandatory labeling
of loud equipment/machinery/signals etc.
a la cigarette packages, then we'd be on the road to a quieter world!
20 years after the former Surgeon General made his statement noise has
more than doubled worldwide and is even more of a serious problem today.
I hope that in less than 5 years time, labeling products for their dB
level will be mandatory worldwide.
