One of the emerging issues that will be coming to an airport near you is health effects of aviation.  It’s worth reading the World Health Organization’s publication Methodological guidance for estimating the burden of disease from environmental noise, which focuses on the concept of potential years of life lost due to premature death to include equivalent years of healthy life lost by virtue of individuals being in states of poor health or disability. One DALY can be thought of as one lost year of healthy life.
