It’s too loud in here
The July 14Health& Science article “Listen to this: Once your ears start ringing, theymay not stop. Ever.” quoted a rule of thumb for determining when noise is too loud and can damage hearing: “Earplugs are needed when the noise is so loud that people sitting next to each other must raise their voices to be heard.”
Try finding a restaurant where this is not the case!
