Smoking can lead to hearing loss

quitsmokingAccording to a recent study by the Society for Research on Nicotine and Tobacco, smokers are at a greater risk for hearing loss. Many cases of hearing loss are not reversible, so awareness and prevention are your best tools for taking care of your hearing. In addition to quitting smoking, experts suggest these tips to protect your hearing:

  • «  Avoid listening to music at high volume while wearing headphones.

  • Experts recommend listening to music at just 60 percent volume, as maximum volume can be higher than 100 decimals.
  • «  Distance yourself from noise.

  • Either avoid environments with high-decibel noise or bring earplugs when you know you’ll be in loud situations.
