This October, join us in getting the word out about National Protect Your Hearing Month.

According to Noisy Planet, “Noise-induced hearing loss affects people of all ages. Approximately 26 million American between the ages of 20 and 69 have hearing loss caused by exposure to loud noises.”

National Protect Your Hearing Month is important for awareness, which is often the first on the road to prevention. In a recent report, the CDC estimated that up to 16 percent of all teens have reported hearing loss caused by loud noise. This is due to a number of factors, such as continuous, loud music through earphones.

We at REM believe that 16 percent is too high. Hearing loss in childhood is often preventable, especially if the right steps are taken.

In October, tell someone you know about National Protect Your Hearing Month. Good hearing habits now help prevent hearing problems down the line.

The American Academy of Audiology has a good list of October hearing month resources.
