Health Tip: Protect Your Child's Hearing

Avoid exposure to loud noise
(HealthDay News) -- Noise-induced hearing loss can affect almost every aspect of a person's life, including the ability to speak and communicate.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests how to protect children from noise-induced hearing loss:
Look for sources of loud noise, such as lawn mowers, music or power tools, and reduce your child's exposure. Keep the volume low while listening to music. If loud noise can't be avoided, have the child wear hearing protection. If you are concerned about hearing loss, have the child's hearing professionally evaluated.
