Music Can Damage Hearing of 1 Billion Young People Worldwide

A report from the World Health Organization (WHO) states that more than 1 billion “young people” are at serious risk of having their hearing damaged by loud music.

The main problem would be the use of headphones to listen to music at a volume above the recommended level – both in the small and intra-headset models and in the oversized models, which cover the entire ear region.Audio playback devices (mp3 players) and smart phones are the most used in this practice.

The other risks that can cause loss or damage to the hearing are listening to loud music in clubs, ballads, bars or even live shows.These people in the risk group are between 12 and 35 years of age and live in countries with high or medium economic power.

Stay tuned for the tips

Still according to WHO, volumes of 85 db for eight consecutive hours or 100 db for 15 minutes are unsafe.For comparison purposes, vuvuzela, a blow instrument popularized during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, emitted 120 db and caused damage if heard for nine seconds of near exposure.

About 360 million people around the world suffer from hearing problems – not only because of their age but also because of excessive noise and disease.WHO recommends regular check-ups and listening to music on players for only one hour a day.
