Can explain why so many young people are wearing headphones and the implications this could have on their health.
Most people use headphones for listening to music without interference by the possible surrounding noises. Some people also wear earplugs or earphones that eliminate noise in the environment to help sleep better at night. But it is a concern because of the implications that follow. For example, hearing issues may take longer to be recognized, meaning it can be difficult to treat the problem once detected. Other complications include;
Earphones are mainly dangerous, especially when people keep sharing them. These devices ca contract ear infections. Also, headphones can transmit bacteria from one individual to another.
Earphones directly transfer sound to the ears, potentially damaging the eardrums. As a result, one can get hearing loss or other hearing problems.
Earphones and headphones generate electromagnetic waves that can cause threatening damage to the brain. Researchers are yet to prove this, but Bluetooth, earphone, and headphone users can be victims of this complication.
