Study: Hearing loss rates hold steady for US teens

from HealthDayNews via UPI

There's good and bad news from a new study on the noise blasted in American teenagers' ears — more kids are listening to music via earphones than ever before, but rates of hearing loss have not increased. Still, "the overall take-home message ... is that not only are the elderly at danger of significant hearing loss — so are our children, at a time in their lives when education is key to their success in life," said hearing expert Dr. Darius Kohan, who reviewed the new study. He directs otology/neurotology at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. The new research was led by Dr. Brooke Su and Dr. Dylan Chan of the University of California, San Francisco. They noted that the number of teens listening to loud music through headphones is on the rise, and even minor hearing loss in children and teenagers can take a toll on their school performance. more
