Music is seen as a medium of entertaining oneself or as a means of recreation for some people. It has become so important in the world today that some even say "Music is life". Below are some reasons why music might actually be dangerous.
It's a well known fact that virtually everywhere Music is played it's usually played in very loudly that when one is listening he barely hears anything. Based on a 2011-2012 CDC study involving hearing tests and interviews with participants, at least 10 million adults (6 percent) in the U.S. under age 70 -
and perhaps as many as 40 million adults (24 percent) - have features of their hearing test that suggest hearing loss in one or both ears from exposure to loud noise.
2. MENTAL DISORDERS
It's widely known that Music helps in the treatment of mental disorders but do also know that Music itself leads to mental disorders. According to a study carried out by Researchers at the Centre for Interdisciplinary Music Research at the University of Jyväskylä, Aalto University in Finland and Aarhus University in Denmark carried out on participants. Anxiety and neuroticism were higher in participants who tended to listen to sad or aggressive music to express negative feelings, particularly in male.
3. BAD BEHAVIOURS
Musicians have attained great importance today that people tend to follow them in whatever they do. Asides the fact that they are bad role models who shouldn't be followed, it's no news that the lyrics of their songs contain references to sex, drug use, suicide, Satanism, and other violence. In a study done by Harvard University, five-hundred and eighteen (518) videos were examined. Seventy-six (76) video's showed acts of interpersonal violence. There were six (6) acts of violence per two to three minute long segments. There were a total of four-hundred (400) and sixty-two (62) shootings, stabbings, punching, and kicking'.
4. ADDICTION TO DRUGS
One in three popular songs contains explicit references to drug or alcohol use, in fact hardly can you come across any song that doesn't contain references to alcohol. According to a new report in The Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine. That means kids are receiving about 35 references to substance abuse for every hour of music they listen to, the authors determined.
Drivers were tested while listening to their own choice of music, silence or "safe" music choices provided by the researchers. Of course, their own music was preferred, but it also proved to be more distracting: drivers made more mistakes and drove more aggressively when listening to their own choice of music.
