In today’s day and age of personal listening devices, most people often take their hearing for granted. Many others are either unaware that they have a hearing deficiency or dismiss the fact that they are placing their hearing at risk by exposing their ears to loud noises. Think you are immune to hearing loss? Think again! Hearing loss is the third most common physical condition after arthritis and heart disease. And if you think hearing loss is primarily a problem for older adults, you should know that gradual hearing loss can affect individuals of all ages. While there is a strong correlation between age and hearing loss, excessive exposure to loud sounds has also been known to cause hearing loss in children and teenagers.
Noise-induced hearing loss is something you can prevent. Even if are unable to tell that you are damaging your hearing, you could have trouble hearing in the future. One of these potential effects of damaged hearing would be your inability to understand other people when they talk, especially on the phone or in a noisy room.
