The voice is not only the main medium of expression of the human mind, on which the professional life of many people depends. In addition, voice and accent are unique and important features of human personality. Proper use of voice has a significant impact on a person's social life. A survey in Property America found that 11% of teachers who talk all the time in a noisy environment suffer from voice problems. This is 7.2% for professions other than teachers, so those who think that teaching is not a profession of voice application, are wrong. Another survey found that 20% of teachers lost their jobs due to various vocal problems, compared to 4% for other professionals.

The first World Voice Day was celebrated in Brazil on April 16, 1999, to raise awareness about the health of the voice and its various problems. World Voice Day is being observed on the 16th of April every year all over the world with the aim of creating awareness about voice among the people. The theme of this year's World Voices Day is 'Improve Your Voice'. Professional voice users such as teachers, singers, political figures, commentators, sales representatives, and actors are more dependent on their voices and are aware of the soundness of their voices. But in the real sense of the word, there is an importance of soundness in the life of all human beings, of which we are not aware. In addition to various diseases of the esophagus, many aspects of daily life can affect our esophagus, causing the esophagus and larynx to lose their normal structural and qualitative features. For example, non-stop use of the voice, speaking too loudly, clearing the throat repeatedly, smoking, drinking alcohol, taking extra hot/cold drinks, etc. are harmful to the voice.

Short-term or long-term changes in the throat can occur due to various diseases of the throat, nose, throat, and respiratory tracts, such as respiratory infections, nasal and sinus infections, allergies, laryngeal polyps, tumors, and cancer. In some cases, congenital diseases of the larynx can also cause birth defects, which can result in shortness of breath, difficulty in drinking milk, and abnormal noises during crying.

Voice Care:

1. Loud talking should be avoided.
2. In case of long talk (such as a teacher) you have to take a break after a while.
3. Microphones should be provided in the classroom.
4. Don't drink extra tea, coffee, and soft drinks.
5. Refrain from drinking alcohol.
6. Avoid smoking.
7. Excessive eating and going to bed immediately after eating should be avoided.
8. Drink plenty of water.
9. Prevent air pollution and use masks in polluted environments.
10. Refrain from drinking extra hot/cold drinks.
11. Get quick treatment for various diseases of the throat, nose, ear, and respiratory tract.
12. If the change in voice lasts for more than three weeks, consult a nose, ear, and throat specialist.
13. Dry weather is bad for our throat. Humidity in the throat decreases when there is less water vapor in the air conditioner. The problem can be solved by using humidifiers at night.
14. The air in the plane is also very dry. So caffeinated foods should be avoided while traveling in the sky. Drink at least 8 ounces of water per hour.
15. The throat can be gargled. With half a tablespoon of salt, half a tablespoon of baking soda, and 8 ounces of hot water.
16. Many times when the throat is dry or the mucus accumulates in the cold, we cough loudly and try to clear the throat, which is very harmful. What to do to get out this mucus.
Breathe deeply (as much as possible). Hold your breath. Make soft noises while exhaling.

Can you imagine a doctor telling his patient about a complex disease without words! A businessman is conducting a rally but without talking! A teacher is teaching without any student's chatter! A singer is singing without sound! The world without voices is the world of silence. So come on, save your voice for your betterment.
