Behind the biggest damage to the ears are the use of earphones and listening to loud music. Due to this, not only in the country, but also in the world, the hearing capacity of the teenagers has been damaged.
100 crore youth can be affected
A study was done regarding the hearing capacity of the ears. It was told that up to 105 decibels (dB) is preferred by young people as earlead, while the sound of loudspeakers at entertainment venues ranges from 104 to 112 dB. While there should be 80 decibels for adults and 75 decibels for children. A total of 33 studies were included in the research, of which 17 records were related to earbuds and headphones, while 18 reports were done regarding entertainment venues. Researchers estimate that the number of teens and young adults with hearing loss globally could range from 0.67 to 1.35 billion. That is, this figure can cross 100 crores.
Study published in BMJ Global Health magazine
According to media reports, a study has been published in the BMJ Global Health magazine regarding the effect of ear hearing loss. According to the study, more than a billion teenagers and youth are at risk of hearing loss due to the use of headphones and earbuds and being present in places with loud music. The international team, including researchers from the Medical University of South Carolina, US, said that the governments of all countries should set policies for ear protection. People should also be made aware for this.
Research done on children aged 12 to 34
