UF study shows college students suffering from hearing loss

By

With the popularity of personal music players increasing by the day, University of Florida researchers have found this may be affecting hearing levels in college students. Communicative Disorders Associate Professor Collen LePrell says the results should serve as a warning for teens to preserve their hearing before its too late.

“The most important message we can pass along is to turn down music levels,” she said. “We only have one set of ears, and once their damaged there’s nothing we can do to restore that normal hearing function.”

LePrell says researchers hope to use the study as a beginning for discovering measures which will help cure and prevent hearing loss.
