Vuvuzela Blown in World Cup Games Damages Our Hearing
I'm wondering where to buy the vuvuzela that is currently used by thousands of fans to support their favourite team ? Do you know that the blast of the vuvuzela plastic horns at World Cup 2010 matches is so loud that people in close proximity could suffer hearing damage ?

Surprisingly, the sound emitted by a vuvuzela is equivalent to 127 decibels and that makes it louder than a drum's 122 decibels, a referee's whistle at 121.8 decibels and close to the noise of a jet taking off at 300m, which is around 130 decibels.
