Exposure to loud noise can cause tinnitus

If you've ever had a ringing sensation in your ears after listening to loud music, then you know what it's like to have tinnitus. Just imagine hearing that noise constantly.

More than 50 million people in the U.S. experience it to some degree, including Lars Ulrich from the band Metallica. Our Dr. Sanjay Gupta had a chance to sit down with the drummer.

    I have 4 school age daughters and there is no test that can measure their intelligence. I think that the SAT test is a waste of time and put an enormous amount of unnecessary stress on the children. Children who have parents making a lot of money have a better chance to pass this SAT test since they can afford tutors, summer schools and extra help etc. Tell me how fair is that? In addition, I think this is another way to keep a certain group a people down!
