Excuse me? What did you say?  Is it hearing loss or attention?

 

  A PSA to those in Austin, TX and the country, it’s true. We are going deaf.

 

Research from Johns Hopkins School of Medicine has determined that hearing loss is a growing problem inHearing Loss in Austin, TX | Audiologist | ENT | Hearing Aids the US. They project that by 2060 2/3 of older people will have hearing loss.

 

The tragedy is that much of this can be avoided by protecting your ears from loud sounds. An ounce of prevention (ear plugs) is better than a pound of cure (hearing aids). The time to start protecting your hearing is now.
