A significant proportion of hearers experience great distress from the Hum, ranging from ear pain to headaches to sleeplessness and nausea. Like any noise complaint it is a nuisance, often serious enough to affect quality of life. It’s instructive to compare this suffering to that caused by more commonly recognized diseases. For example, essentially everybody in the population has somebody in their immediate or extended family who has been affected by cancer or cardiovascular disease. The suffering caused by these is widespread, visible, obvious, and life-altering. Even so, research into their cure is underfunded by tax dollars, and organizations such as The Canadian Cancer Society, The American Heart and Lung Association, and so on, must raise funds independently by appealing to the general public. It has been suggested that only two percent of the general population can sense the Hum, hence the limited political will to investigate it. Because the evidence is anecdotal, it is not surprising that public funds are typically not available for inquires into the phenomenon. When authorities have become involved, such as with Windsor, Ontario, investigations typically begin with a suspected industrial source and are limited to very basic acoustical data gathering. So far there have been few if any formal controlled experiments that incorporate the other factors suspected to be causing the Hum.
