Exposure to loud noise on a prolonged and repeated basis can damage your hearing. Research confirms that noise-induced hearing loss is the second most common form of hearing loss after age-related hearing loss. However, it is avoidable.
Snoring has long been held as one of those funny things that humans do. But if you have a partner who snores you’ll know it’s no laughing matter. You’re short of sleep all the time and you often end up sleeping in the spare room or on the sofa to escape. And to add insult to injury, if your bedfellow is a particularly loud snorer – and some snores can be up to 90 decibels or beyond (the same as a jackhammer) – you are likely to be compromising your hearing too.
