According to the World Health Organization, hearing loss is the number one sensory disability. Noise-induced hearing loss is one of the primary culprits. While loud music, firecrackers, firearms, jet engines, and jackhammers may be some of the most dangerous known sound levels, there are many more less known sounds that can adversely affect your hearing.
The sound of a subway train, a passing motorcycle, or riding a personal watercraft all exceed 85 decibels of sound and can damage your hearing. Other common sounds which meet this threshold you may be exposed to in your daily activities include:
Kitchen appliances like garbage disposals, coffee grinders, blenders, and food processors
Lawn mowers and leaf blowers
Long flights in an airplane
Power tools such as drill presses, sanders, buffers, and air compressors
A noisy factory
Hearing Damage Not Involving Loud Sounds
There are other health practices and environmental factors that negatively affect your hearing. These include:
Not removing earwax
Ototoxic medications which may include antiobiotics
