Take steps to prevent deafness

Loud sounds destroy the ear’s sensory nerve cells and sometimes it’s so gradual you don’t even notice it.

Although you can’t repair this damage, you can preserve what you have left.

The golden rule is if you’re in a noisy room where you have to raise your voice to be heard by someone three feet away, then it’s too loud.

Play your iPod on the lowest volume that’s audible to protect yourself against further damage.
