Low Frequency Intrusion (LFI)
is the involuntary exposure to loud low frequencies
in people's personal environments, like their home or work place, inducing physical and mental distress
. Evidence suggests that second-hand bass frequencies
, most commonly generated by high-powered car or home audio systems, have a negative impact on the human body, mind and spirit. View the current LFI survey results
Consequently, LFI presents a more significant health concern than anyone realizes at this time.
Low Frequency Intrusion
also provokes frustration, negative thoughts, feelings of revenge and contempt toward the LFI offender(s) in otherwise peaceful, reasonable and considerate people. This response is quite normal, considering the disrespectful and repeated violations of their private space. LFIs simply induce a lower emotional, intellectual and spiritual mindset.
Research has long substantiated the harmful effects low frequency noise can have on people. Symptoms include aggravation, decreased concentration, premature exhaustion, elevated blood pressure, increased heart rate, insomnia, migraines, anxiety, frustration, sleep disruption, anger, contempt and many others.
What is Noise Pollution? source: www.epa.gov
The traditional definition of noise is "unwanted or disturbing sound". Sound becomes unwanted when it either interferes with normal activities such as sleeping, conversation, or disrupts or diminishes one’s quality of life
. The fact that you can't see, taste or smell it may help explain why it has not received as much attention as other types of pollution
, such as air pollution, or water pollution. The air around us is constantly filled with sounds, yet most of us would probably not say we are surrounded by noise. Though for some, the persistent and escalating sources of sound can often be considered an annoyance. This "annoyance" can have major consequences, primarily to one’s overall health.

Noise pollution adversely affects the lives of millions of people
. Studies have shown that there are direct links between noise and health. Problems related to noise include stress related illnesses, high blood pressure, speech interference, hearing loss, sleep disruption, and lost productivity
. Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) is the most common and often discussed health effect, but research has shown that exposure to constant or high levels of noise can cause countless adverse health affects
