KDKA-TV: Study: Hearing Loss On The Rise With Girls

Monday, January 3rd, 2011

More teens listen to music these days on i-Pods or MP3 players, but blasting tunes on their headphones may not be causing hearing damage after all.

It’s not who you would expect to lose hearing. However, girls like it loud, which results in consequences for those pretty, young ears.

If you hear any noise it isn’t the boys, it’s the girls.

In a study of more than 4,000 teens, girls have just as much noise-induced hearing loss as boys. The numbers show a five percent increase for girls compared to the 1990s.

 

See what Allegheny General Hospital hearing specialist Dr. Todd Hillman has to say about it in this report from KDKA-TV.
