Major Causes of Hearing Loss

The WHO (World Health Organization) reports that over 2 billion people worldwide will have some degree of hearing loss by 2025. Because of the way young people listen to their music (wearing headphones), this number could be much larger by 2030. There isn’t much educational material out there for people in general especially teenagers. They often play their music too loud without any ear protection and they have not been taught that this will lead to hearing loss later in life.

Damage to your ear drums is usually difficult or even impossible to repair. Once your hearing is impaired, it’s irreversible. But loud music isn’t the only culprit. Many factories and warehouses exceed the safe limit for the noises they produce in a day’s time. There are fork lifts, loud machines, people yelling and various other sounds. Though most employers provide ear protection, they do not enforce the wearing of it. This leaves each person to decide for themselves whether they will wear ear plugs.

If you’ve noticed that you’re hearing isn’t what it used to be then take the right steps to learn more.

Get a hearing test.

Ask your audiologist what type of hearing aid you should be wearing.

Begin wearing protection.

Be careful about listening to loud sounds.

Doing nothing will most likely result in even greater hearing loss. So take steps to protect yourself. Being able to hear the world around you is a beautiful thing.
