Noise can make you deaf

And the Hindustan Times, knowing this, advises its readers: This Diwali, turn a deaf ear to noise.

Diwali is happening now, so enjoy the sigts–and some of the sounds–and don’t forget to pack some disposable earplugs for yourself, your friends, and family.

    It doesn’t make people deaf as in Deaf community. Noise max hearing loss about 40 dB low frequency to 75 dB high frequency. But with noise trauma, it’s not just inner ears like most Deafness and sensorineural hearing loss. It’s also hearing nerve progressive fraying and death of nerve connections to inner ears. High distortion. Hard communication. No fix.
