Turn down the iPod sound!

DANGER DANGER DANGER! iPods are ‘damaging our children’s ears’: the Daily Mail says that hearing loss in teenagers has risen 30% in 20 years. Don't take your hearing for granted - and don't underestimate thehidden dangers of those earphones! One in five adolescents had a hearing problem in a sample taken between 2005-6. Posted on the Daily Mail website 18th August 2010. Teenagers might not appreciate this reminder; however, turning down today's decibels could make tomorrow's communication easier.
