Can you prevent hearing loss?
It’s impossible to block out all the noise of our busy world. Whether it’s construction, car traffic or loud music at a concert, modern life has a way of making a racket. But you can control some of your noise exposure. For example, it’s a good idea to take earplugs along to concerts and movies that feature a loud soundtrack. It’s a great idea to wear earplugs while using noisy household machines such as leaf blowers. People who work in noisy environments should ask their employers to provide hearing protection.
