Like it Loud? Young people, loud music and hearing damage
Published: June 2007
Summary: Hearing damage is cumulative and can lead to premature hearing loss, tinnitus and other problems such as hyperacusis. Once hearing damage occurs there is no cure, yet the damage is preventable.
In other areas of public health – diet, sex, smoking, alcohol, drugs, sunbathing – the public has been provided with information that allows them to make an informed choice. This is not the case with the dangers to hearing from over- exposure to loud music.
We believe today’s generation has a right to know they are putting their hearing at risk and what they can do to protect themselves.
