I do believe that hearing is worse in modern times because of the industrial revolution and the heavy manufacturing that proceeded this era. In order to keep up with public demand, manufacturing has grown exponentially as an industry and entering a large city ensures that any person will be bombarded with loud sounds from transportation, construction or many other avenues. Though the same cannot be said for rural areas, it is certainly true of cities.
Hearing is worse in modern times due to the many loud sounds around us, this is also confirmed by the number of people seeking medical attention on the same. We have become a noisy society, starting from industries, loud music equipment and use of earphones and headphones. It is sad to mention that the situation is not getting any better.
Scientists have actually done studies that prove that hearing is worse because of all of the loud noises around us. It is important to protect your ears so you do not go deaf, but this is not done as often as people should do it, and people are losing their hearing at an alarming rate.
Hearing is worse in the modern times. This is caused by the many loud sounds around us. Those of vehicles, machines, trains and other electronics. This has caused a lot of hearing problems and also caused others to be deaf. Unlike the olden days when it was calm and peaceful.
