Is anyone really listening to the warnings about the risks of listening to loud music. It’s a fact, that Tinnitus and hearing loss are linked to extremely loud music, ear phones, iPods and cell phone use. Sadly, these warnings may be falling on deaf ears.
Hearing loss and Tinnitus symptoms in teenagers is on the rise. Recent statistics show that they are 30% higher now than in the 1980s and 1990s, according to a new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
It’s too soon to tell whether listening to music through ear buds increases the risk. However, the study points the finger at iPods and any other particular music-playing device for the alarming rise in permanent hearing loss among our youth.
“Today’s younger generation are listening to music twice as long as teenagers of previous generations and at much higher volumes”, as quoted by Brian Fligor, an audiologist at Children’s Hospital Boston.
Parents honestly underestimate how much noise their children are exposed to and they’re paying the price for their lackadaisical attitude towards restricting the amount of time spent using these devices. Unfortunately, tinnitus has been diagnosed more and more these days in teens and young adults due to exposure to loud noise. The Tinnitus Miracle has been used as a holistic and safe tinnitus treatment program to help many young teens deal with the overwhelming symptoms of hearing loss and Tinnitus problems.
We hope that by publishing this article, we at TreatingTinnitusRinging.com will do our part in raising awareness of tinnitus among young adults. There are things that can be done to limit the risk of developing tinnitus and long term hearing loss.
