October is National Protect Your Hearing Month

October has been designated by the American Academy of Audiology as the “National Protect Your Hearing Month.”

Protecting our ability to hear is important because studies have shown that good hearing has beneficial effect on our overall quality of life, since it allows us to participate in various activities and communicate with people around us.

Our hearing can be impaired by a variety of causes, including aging, genetics, smoking, obesity, diabetes, and environmental noise.

Prolonged exposure to any noise louder than 85 decibels is considered to be harmful to our hearing, so we must be vigilant and pro-active about turning down the volume whenever possible and wearing ear plugs in a noisy work environment.

Exercise, healthy diet, quitting smoking, and treatment for diabetes are also important steps toward reducing our risk of hearing loss.
