Say Again

And speak up:

BRUSSELS – Almost one in five (17.8 percent) young people in Flanders is suffering some degree of hearing loss because of excessive exposure to loud music or noise during their free time.

A survey of Flemish youth between the ages of 16 and 19 shows that more than half have noticed that their hearing is not optimal. In the 1970s that figure was hardly 1 percent.
