      Interesting primer article about Tinnitus from Buzzfeed:

      Nothing none of us here don't already know, unfortunately, but nice to see a big online publication talking about it.

      And yet they still throw in some information that is just not very good advice (in my opinion):

      Just goes to show how much we still have to do to educate the general public about dangerous noise!

      The UK government hasn't spent a single penny raising awareness for tinnitus...Now for fireworks related injures they spend quite a bit.

      What if we could get the try-guys at Buzzfeed try tinnitus for a day? It would definitely raise a lot of awareness
