					Hearing loss occurs when the tiny hair cells in the inner ear are

the ears. Loud music can It is a little considered but well known medical
fact that the ears are a very tender and delicate part of the human body.
Extensive exposure to sound pressure levels above 85dBA will cause damage
to hearing. Loud music can cause TTS, Temporary Threshold Shift, which is

same dangerous levels and this addiction to loud music is not only in the
secular world.   Dr Wendy Stenberg-Tendys and her husband are CEO's and
