Any one user may think he can benefit from taking as much of the resource as possible. Proposed Recommendations Statement Research demonstrates that lives can be saved from reducing noise and that the costs of enforcing noise regulations will be far less than the health care costs associated with heart disease, hearing loss, and lost productivity.
Fear about environmental risk factors whether or not such fear is warranted on technical grounds is increasing, as evidenced by frequent reporting on environmental risks in the local news media, including headline news stories that have raised alarms.
