HERNANDEZ PENA, Odalys; HERNANDEZ MONTERO, Gisel  y  LOPEZ RODRIGUEZ, Ernesto. Noise and health. Rev Cub Med Mil [online]. 2019, vol.48, n.4, e431.  Epub 01-Dic-2019. ISSN 0138-6557.

The impact of noise on health is an evident reality that has gone beyond the industrial context, to become an important social problem. Modern society, supported by the use of technology, encourages the use of machinery and noise generating devices; children and young people are exposed from their influence earlier than ever. The hearing loss is increasingly premature and is often associated with the increase of chronic noncommunicable diseases, which have prolonged and excessive exposure to noise as a substrate, either voluntarily or involuntarily. In this work the authors give their opinion on the different situations in which noise behaves as an aggressor to health, argue the damage caused by this and in turn draw attention to the prevention of hearing damage caused by exposure to noise.

Palabras clave : noise; hearing loss; auditory damage by noise.
