Coffee or any other caffeine drink is out perfect partner to stay agile and keep us awake. More than 80% of Western adults consume large amounts of caffeine every day.

Do you go to a rock concert and come back with some ringing in your ears? That’s perfectly fine and should get better in 72 hours or less but if you’re a coffee addict, you have something to worry.

A recent study carried out by Montreal, Canada’s Research Institute, suggests that caffeine may negatively impact one’s ability to recover from noise-induced hearing loss. The study was conducted on 24 albino guinea pigs and confirms that exposure to loud auditory stimuli coupled with significant caffeine intake can obstruct hearing recovery.

It’s time to minimise those coffee portions!
