Young ears at risk - WHO

Monday March 2nd, 2015

Nightclubs and smartphones are placing the hearing of a generation of adults at risk, according to health experts.

The problem is world-wide, according to the World Health Organisation.

Across middle and high income countries, nearly 50% of teenagers and young adults are exposed to unsafe levels of sound from personal audio devices, it says.

And almost as many put their hearing at risk at clubs and other entertainment venues, it says.

It issued its warning in advance of International Ear Care Day tomorrow.

WHO called for governments to introduce "strict legislation" on recreational noise.

Dr Etienne Krug, from WHO, said: “As they go about their daily lives doing what they enjoy, more and more young people are placing themselves at risk of hearing loss.

“They should be aware that once you lose your hearing, it won’t come back. Taking simple preventive actions will allow people to continue to enjoy themselves without putting their hearing at risk.”
