Studies suggest that kids are experiencing greater levels of exposure to damaging noise, with pediatric audiologists reporting an increase in the amount of children they are treating with damaged hearing.
12.5% children in the USA today between the ages of 6-19 have experienced hearing damage, which can be a progressive problem with continued exposure to excessive noise. Some of this number demonstrate profound hearing loss as a result of noise exposure.
These findings suggest that children are being exposed to excessive amounts of hazardous noise, and children’s hearing is vulnerable to these exposures – leading to continued hearing-health problems in later life.
SAFE sounds levels are considered to be around 85dB, which, for the uninitiated, is slightly louder than the noise a washing machine makes. Seems small doesn’t it? But it’s a big issue. Airplane noise often registers over 92dB! Imagine that for 10 hours!
