How to prevent hearing loss
As per data from the World Health Organization, five in every 1,000 infants are born with hearing impairments and many get hearing loss in early childhood.
Also one in every three people over the age of 65 years is affected with hearing loss. The condition is caused mostly by long exposure to noisy environments.
Experts suggest that heavy use of headphones, going to loud places like music concerts and discos can cause loss of hearing in youngsters.
Early screening for hearing in babies can help them get treatment on time. Taking care of the ear can prevent hearing loss.
Using good quality headphones, avoiding loud music and regular checkups can help maintain healthy ear and hearing.
