Headphones can be dangerous

Wearing headphones can be a danger to your health and well-being.

As reported in the January 17 issue of the journal “Injury Prevention” there has been a 200% increase in U.S. pedestrians killed or injured since 2004 while wearing headphones.

I know when I’m walking around town I like to listen to music on my iPod. Unfortunately I tend to focus on the sidewalk ahead so I don’t trip.  That’s a deadly combination.
