Your hearing is precious
Throughout our lives we are bombarded with a steady stream of sound – in schools, at home, at work and out and about. And sometimes these sounds get so loud that they begin to damage our hearing.
Today, nearly one in two people over the age of 50 often has difficulty understanding what people say when it is noisy, and that number is likely to increase in the future.
Young people are at risk of losing their hearing faster than previous generations due to more exposure to loud music and noisy environments.
Our hearing helps us get educated, find jobs, build families and lasting friendships, which is why it is worth taking care of. This leaflet tells you what you can do to protect this precious sense.Leave a reply →
