Toronto Subway Stations may be causing hearing loss and stress
Toronto Subway Stations – Commuting in Toronto can be so slow and frustrating sometimes, but it may also be harming your hearing. A new study in the Journal of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery says some of the noises, particularly from transit, may be negatively affecting your health. According to the study, one of the loudest stations in the city is Keele subway station.
Keele Station being partially outdoors and having a huge bus stop just below it makes it one of the loudest stations. But doctors say it’s that grinding metal on metal sound that can be the most damaging to your hearing.
