Drinking alcohol, taking drugs and engaging in risky sex have long been linked together in young people, but a new study suggests that “risky music-listening” should also be added to the list of health-risk behaviors.

Not only do teens and young adults who listen to loud music have an increased risk of hearing loss, Dutch researchers found that young people who blast music were also more likely to smoke cigarettes, binge drink, take soft and hard drugs and have sex without a condom.

I wouldn't trust any social studies, and certainly not if they were conducted by dutch 'social scientists'

All of these types of research are not only stupid and a waste of money, they are generally also misleading and motivated by personal reasons.

Correlation =/= causation. The only danger from being exposed to loud noises is hearing damage.

If you're not playing metal loud, you're doing it wrong.
