According to the National Institutes of Health, roughly 28 million Americans suffer from hearing loss – about 1/3 of those cases can be partially attributable to noise. The good news is that hearing loss due to noise can be almost entirely prevented through the use of hearing protection such as ear plugs or ear muffs.
Hearing protection is recommended when around high levels of noise such as outdoor equipment (i.e., lawn mower, leaf blower), recreational shooting or hunting, loud concerts, and occupational noise.
