Dry Your Hands, Harm Your Ears?
Have you heard about the smart young scientist taking the issue of noise into her own hands? After experiencing discomfort from the loud noise of hand dryers in public restrooms, then 9-year-old Nora Louise Keegan used a sound level meter placed at the height of a child’s ear to measure hand dryer noise. It probably comes as no surprise that the level was often dangerously high.

Keegan wrote a scientific paper, published in Paediatrics & Child Health, to share her results. Keegan is on to something: researchers concerned with public health are developing an understanding of the many risks of exposure to too much noise, and it’s not just hearing loss! Risks include fatigue, heart disease, high blood pressure, and more. Larson Davis’ Class 1 Sound Level Meters provide the most accurate and repeatable results available for noise studies by scientists of all ages.
