Prevent your child from using headphones, which will lead to hearing loss and dementia


Adolescents and young people accept the use of headphones, which is one of the most prevalent habits in that age group, which has a direct impact on the health of the ear. The continuous pumping of sound in the ear can be very harmful, especially if it is higher than the normal rates recommended globally.


According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 40 million adults have hearing loss due to exposure to loud noise.


Constant use of headphones may affect children's hearing

 

Experts from the Quiet Coalition, a US-based non-profit organization, have warned that the increased use of headphones and earphones is likely to cause hearing problems in young people due to the inadequate development of their hearing system. Children, teens, and young adults listen to music at volumes above the public health limit. The globally recommended 70 dB of average recreational noise exposure for a year, according to onlymyhealth.


Daniel Fink of Quiet Coalition said that the recommended noise exposure level - 85 dB - is unsafe for children, and increases the risk of hearing loss in children, because their auditory development is incomplete, especially as it is associated with communication problems, social isolation and increased risk of falls and accidents. Children may develop dementia in the future.


How do earbuds harm the ears?

 

Hearing loss can occur as a result of repeated exposure to loud noises, and loud noises that are harmful to the ears in general. When sound travels normally, it converges in the ear canal and then travels through the nerve to the tympanic membrane for recognition.


And when you wear the earphones, the sound is coordinated and bombarded directly at the eardrum, and long-term use of the earphones can cause damage ranging from temporary to permanent.


It can lead to frequent headaches, hearing loss, tinnitus and dizziness, and the World Health Organization (WHO) has also confirmed that regular exposure to loud noises can also lead to high blood pressure, increased heart rate, and cardiovascular disease.


Experts recommend using one hearing aid at a time and continuing to give each ear some rest, to avoid serious hearing complications for your child in the future.
