Interesting Facts:

Did you know that…………….

  1. 250 million people, 15% of the population has some kind of hearing loss. 

 

  1. The outside part of your ear is called the pinna and its job is to collect and funnel sound into your ear canal. 

 

  1. Earwax is important for keeping dirt out of your ear canal. 

 

  1. The three bones in your middle ear are the smallest bones in your body, and all three could fit together on a dime. 

 

  1. The inner ear is called the cochlea. It is shaped like a snail shell and is about the size of a pencil eraser, but it contains more than 20,000 hairs or cilia. The cilia turn sound waves into electrical impulses that run along your auditory nerve to your brain.
