True, there's still even further things that simply cannot be studied.
For example, we know that 120dB acoustic sounds have their own
sensations different from softer sounds. However, if we expose people
to sounds that loud we would cause hearing loss, which is unethical.
Same thing goes for investigating some effects like you describe--we
couldn't quantify those things mostly because we couldn't duplicate
real world situations and in many cases, it wouldn't be ethical to do
To describe the things we can study ethically and scientifically, use
numbers. For everything else, use words :)
