Constant exposure to racket of daily life takes its toll on hearing: "Constant exposure to racket of daily life takes its toll on hearingOne of Catherine's classic quotes is in the article:
Gushing blood flowing out the side of a head would do plenty to promote hearing protection. But, it doesn't work that way.
"It is an invisible problem," Dr. Palmer said. "If loud music made your ears bleed, something would be done about it. But the damage can take 10 years before you notice."
This is another classic and one where lots of work has unfolded in changing behaviors.
One day in the future, a high school or college marching band will show up for a Pittsburgh Labor Day Parade and NOT have hearing protection for its members and be sent home. Being sent home, without marching in the parade, with instruments still in their cases will come with healthy hair cells working as they should within those sensory organs.
Could you see a high school football team take the field for the kickoff and opt to NOT wear their helmets? They would not be permitted to play the game.
