The one place you should never kiss a baby

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Where's the one place you should never kiss a baby -- or anyone for that matter?

According to a Professor of Audiology at Hofstra University, avoid kissing the ear. 

A kiss right on the ear opening creates strong suction that tugs on the delicate eardrum, resulting in a condition known as "Cochlear Ear-Kiss Injury".

This can cause permanent hearing loss, ringing, sensitivity to sound, or distortion.
