Are you hearing everything life has to offer?
It's a Noisy World Out There
Noise levels have increased everywhere. From hair dryers to leaf blowers, lawnmowers, snowmobiles, iPods®, freeway traffic, surround sound speakers and more, we constantly expose our ears to damaging levels of noise.
And that's just at home. Our work environments are becoming increasingly loud as well. Some of the noisiest workplaces are those where firefighters, factory workers, farmers, teachers, construction workers and musicians spend a significant part of their day.
Other factors that may contribute to hearing loss include:
- blockage of the ear canal by an object or accumulated cerumen (earwax)
- diseases, infections or medical disorders
- medications and treatments like chemotherapy or antibiotics
- physical trauma to the ears or head
