Did you know that 48 million people in the United States have trouble hearing out of one (or both) of their ears? Over time, being around too much loud noise can make you lose your hearing — and once it’s gone, you can’t get it back.
Every year on March 3, the World Health Organization (WHO) sponsors World Hearing Day, a time to raise awareness about preventing hearing loss and promoting hearing care worldwide. This year’s theme, “Hear the Future,” focuses on strategies to prevent the expected increase in the number of people living with hearing loss.
At the National Center for Environmental Health (NCEH), we believe this is the perfect opportunity to highlight our shared responsibility to educate young people about noise-induced hearing loss in order to help prevent it. We know that young people may not be aware of the risk of spending too much time around loud noises — so this World Hearing Day, we ask that you join us in our efforts to spread the word.
