Here are some excerpts from the web interview:

  • Your ears might ring for a few days after a concert and recover, but an audiologist says the signs of damage are seen in the auditory nervous system.
  • People with a damaged auditory system have a hard time listening in complex environments where there are many layers of sound, such as in a restaurant.
  • In May the Toronto's medical officer of health published a report on the harmful effects of Toronto's environmental noise on cardiovascular and mental health.
