Hearing loss is becoming a growing problem, we should be aware of noise levels around us and protect our hearing when necessary.
(PRWEB UK) 20 February 2013
A recent study from India has found that noise induced hearing loss is occurring at younger ages than previously thought.
Published in the International Journal of Head and Neck Surgery in December, the study looked at 150 students from Bharti Vidyapeeth Dental College and found that 75% of students had been exposed to extreme noise pollution on a routine basis. Of the 75%, 16 had suffered noise-induced hearing loss.
A spokesperson from Hidden Hearing said:
“Hearing loss is becoming a growing problem, we should be aware of noise levels around us and protect our hearing when necessary. If you think your hearing has been affected, book a no obligation hearing test at one of our hearing centres today.”
