Acoustical Society of America - 151st Meeting Press Release, 9 May 2006 [cached]
"After 40+ years of study, we can conclude that there is a great range of individual differences in susceptibility to noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL)," says Donald Henderson of the Center for Hearing and Deafness at the State University of New York at Buffalo. Henderson will review the different acoustical, environmental and biological factors that can lead to variations (2aPPb1).

Complicating matters is the fact that most people don't notice hearing loss because it can be gradual and subtle , says Donald Henderson , co-director for the Center_for Hearing and Deafness at the State University of New_York at Buffalo.
If you took a random selection of fourth graders and compared their hearing with college seniors , you'd find a difference , with the seniors having more hearing loss.But since hearing loss is such a slow process , if you asked those seniors if they have hearing loss , they'd probably say no , and even when the loss was more substantial in their 30s , they may not be aware of it , he says.
And , he says they can't get it back..
In_addition to hearing loss , Henderson says household noise causes stress-related health problems , including elevated blood pressure , fatigue , reduced sleep , increased frustration and anxiety levels and difficulty in concentrating.
To avoid such problems , ASHA recommends you :.
Keep your television , stereo and radio volume low.

Donald Henderson, Ph.D. is a Professor in the Department of Communicative Disorders and Sciences at the University at Buffalo. As a highly respected auditory neuro scientist, Dr. Henderson has been chipping
away at the noise-induced hear­ing loss issue for over 36 years.
Initial studies in Dr. Henderson's UB lab attempted to provide support to the con­cept that NAC would exhibit its protective properties in the cochlea. NAC was placed on theround window of the cochleas of chinchillas that acted as subjectsfor a noise exposure experiment. Following NAC administration and defined noise treatments, electrophysiological measures and histological studies of the animals' cochleas were complet­ed. The results were as Dr. Henderson's group hypothe­sized. The NAC-treated cochleas sustained less of a sen­sory cell insult from the noise exposures than the cochleas of the animals that did not receive the compound.
According to Dr. Henderson, "the first controlled study, supervised by Army Colonel Richard Kopke, MD, is about to get underway to determine if the effects of NAC are generalizable to humans with regard to hear­ing conservation".
The hope is that Dr. Henderson's findings in the chinchilla model will repli­cate in the basic trainees receiv­ing NAC supplementation.
"Noise exposure has been shown to not only affect the sensory cells of the cochlea, but also the junction between the cells, specifically at the Deiter's cups in which they rest", accord ­ing to Dr. Henderson. He con­tinues, "Dr. Hangauer's com­pound is a small molecule that prevents a certain kind of apop­tosis and therefore we believe we can reduce or prevent dam-age we see occurring at the cell junctions".
Dr. Henderson and his Center for Hearing and Deafness colleagues put a small amount of Dr. Hangauer's compound (CH-65) on the round window of chinchillas and then exposed the animals to noise.
