Protect your beautiful ears and prevent hearing loss!
I’m always fascinated by cool timing, deja vu, coincidences, and that sort of thing. After posting an article a couple of days ago on the self help blog, I came across an article on the Daily Mail about protecting your ears and preventing hearing loss. Timing, most definitely cool.
In the article, an ear specialist/surgeon addressed the question, “Will loud music damage my ears in the long term?” The doctor’s answer:
Yes. Listening to loud music for a prolonged period overstimulates and can eventually kill the hair cells in the inner ear. The human ear is not designed to hear noises above 85dB (decibels), yet the average rock concert is 120dB. Source: Daily Mail
When you see the words, “kill the hair cells..” it really grabs your attention, doesn’t it? If something’s killed, it’s damaged and destroyed forever. Killing, definitely uncool. We should all keep that in mind when listening to tv and the radio in our cars. You might want to pass this link along to the young people in your life. Remind the music-lovers that they can either start investing in good hearing today or they can start saving money for the hearing aides they’ll one day need.
