Noise is such a problematic issue that raise big concerns recently. That is why some people argue that there should be strict control on the level of noise production, while others object to this idea, claiming that people have the right to make noise as loudly as they want. I believe that noise should be controlled for the betterment of human life quality. 62

On the one hand, it is understandable why there are supporters of loud noise. First, noise is indispensable to modern life. In the old-time, people did not have access to modern loud-producing equipment such as TV or music speakers and individual transports were not as popular. However, today people are so accustomed to noises such as blaring car horns or engine noise that they feel no strong objection to them and claim that noise control is unnecessary. Second, loud noise is integral in many critical occasions such as ceremonies or celebrations such as weddings or festivals. Loud music is exciting, upbeat and can be pleasing to the ear that relieves people’s stress of work and study, refresh their mind and revitalize them. Undoubtedly, in this case, noise is an indispensable element. 131

Nevertheless, people’s health and life qualities can be reduced greatly under loud noise’s impacts. For one thing, loud noise such as blaring car horns or noise sounds from people’s clamorous arguments or from brassy nonstop traffic cause people an array of health problems such as cardiovascular problems, sleeplessness which dramatically lower human life quality. For another, unbearable noise interferes and distracts people from their work and study. In a recent survey about the effect of learning environment on a student’s performance, 90% said that they work best in a quiet hushed environment such as the library while just 10% choose to work in noisy places such as parks or café. This example has indicated that booming noise is mainly responsible for low productivity and focus span/ attention. 119

To conclude, Some people argue that they see no problem with excessive noise; therefore, noise levels should not be controlled. I disagree with that idea from every perspective and believe that blasting noise should be controlled effectively to improve humans’ health and productivity.
