This is certainly the case with Vibroacoustic Disease (VAD), a whole-body noise-induced pathology, that is not particularly related to the ear. The Problem. The social and economic costs of VAD are staggering, and continuously aggravated by the fact that environmental noise assessments pay little attention to the noise that causes… CONTINUE READING
