NOW Can You Hear Me?!

The Los Angeles Times reports that one in every five teens has at least a slight hearing loss – a dramatic 77% rise in the last 15 years.  Undoubtedly the major contributor is electronic music devices such as I-Pods blaring loudly.  If you can hear the music from a kid’s buds while he’s wearing them, chances are he’s at least a little deaf.
