Campaign for More Awareness to be Made About the Health of our Ears and Hearing.

When I was 15 I developed tinnitus from listening to my iPod too constantly. A constant ringing in the ears that will never go away. I didn't even know what tinnitus was until I was diagnosed; there is no cure for tinnitus.

Up to 10% of the population have tinnitus and for some it impairs their life greatly. I want to stop this from happening to anyone else.

The number of young children with their own mp3s and phones is increasing. Thousands of people visit nightclubs and concerts without any ear plugs in Britain every day. We need to take a stand now before the name "Generation Deaf" rings true.

- Should be required that free ear plugs are handed out at the entrance of concerts and night clubs.

- There should be more advertising just like there is on the affects that smoking has on your body. The adverts should aim to cause awareness of hearing loss and tinnitus that can be caused by not protecting your ears and listening to your music too loud.

STOP "GENERATION DEAF."
