Myths And Truths About Hearing

By Abel Alexander

Myth: It is impossible for anyone in my family to suffer hearing loss because it is not in my genes. Hearing loss is hereditary.

Truth: Not everyone suffering from hearing loss is suffering because of their age. Age does play a factor but only small portion. The biggest thing that affects hearing loss is the abuse people put their ears through. The excessive listening to loud music and wrong way of cleaning the ear are two of the biggest causes for someone to lose their hearing. Doctors would often remind people of to not turn the radio on so high because it will damage the ear. The doctors are right. And although people might not feel it immediately, the air will be damaged over time.

Many people enjoy listening to music in its maximum volume. No one can blame them. Music is beautiful thing but this is damaging to the ear. The inner ear is made of very sensitive tissues that allow it to accurately vibrate the sound to the brains. When the sound waves are too strong, it could damage the ear.

Truth: Odds are the person losing the hearing is not even aware he is losing his hearing. Without him knowing it, he needs to make the volume a little louder one day and then a little louder another day and before you know it, you can’t hear anything at all. The increase in volume requirement is gradual and, sometimes, even the people around you don’t notice it. The best way to go about this is to regularly have your ear checked the same way you get your teeth checked.

Myth: Hearing aids are large, unsightly and expensive. There really are no reasons for anyone to wear them if they are losing their hearing anyway.

Listening to music cannot be avoided and is not really advised. However, caution must be taken to ensure that the ear is not being tortured. Try to keep the volume at a medium level and also take a break. It is bad to expose your ear to sounds the whole day, you must give it a rest.
