Hearing Things? Tinnitus

Tinnitus is the leading service-related disability among U.S. veterans. The American Tinnitus Association (ATA) says if you’re a senior citizen, military personnel, person who works in a loud environment, or a musician, you’re high-risk for tinnitus. And a 2016 report confirmed that tinnitus is a growing concern for teens and young people, while predicting it will get worse thanks to “risky listening habits” like blaring music through headphones.
