Protect your hearing in Florida
Did you know that over one third of people 65 and up are experiencing hearing loss? 28 million- or nearly one in ten- Americans experience hearing loss. Aging, illness, trauma, and continuous exposure to loud noise all play a part in hearing loss over the years, which makes preventative hearing-protection measures all the more important. Whether you’re 15 or 55, it is important to take measures to protect the gift that is your hearing. Protect your hearing while around noise pollution by wearing earplugs, lower the volume on your stereo or iPod, and be cognizant of your surroundings. Invest in a pair of noise-cancellation buds or earphones. Most importantly, have your hearing checked regularly. If you take these measures, your life experience is guaranteed to be better throughout your elderly years.
