Summer has (unofficially) kicked off. It's time to get out there and enjoy it. Outdoor concerts, festivals and parades are all on the agenda. But these summer events have one thing in common-loud noises that could damage your hearing.
You’re being treated for a health condition, and the medication is working as intended. But you’ve noticed you’re not hearing as well as you did before you started treatment. Could there be a connection between the healing of your body and the hearing you’ve lost? If you’ve been exposed to one of more than 200 known “ototoxic” drugs, the answer may be yes.
For a lot of people, summertime means enjoying the great outdoors. But along with favorite summer pastimes come potential threats to your hearing — in the form of ka-booms, roars, blasts and other ear-piercing noises.
