Why am I losing my hearing?
Hearing loss happens for many different reasons. Some people lose their hearing as they age naturally, some lose their hearing due to frequent exposure to loud noises. Hearing loss could also be caused by a virus or bacteria, heart conditions or stroke, head injuries, tumors and certain medicines. If you suspect that you might be losing your hearing, the best thing to do would be to get a hearing evaluation.
How loud does a sound have to be before it can damage my hearing?
Exposure to noise levels above 85 decibels (85dB) can cause hearing loss over time. Prolonged exposure to everyday loud noises like emergency sirens, road construction and factory machinery can lead to permanent hearing loss. Here are some guidelines: A whisper is around 20-30dB, a lawn mower or truck is about 90dB, a rock concert can be 100-130dB continuously. Please remember to wear hearing protection when you know you are going to be in a situation louder than 85dB to keep the noise doing to a safer level.
