Tinnitus is a condition of ringing in the ears that affects 1 in 5 people in the world. Many people with the condition do not respond to the traditional methods of treatment such as balance tests and medication, and of the people who are treated 90% of them do not see improvement. Student scientist Betul Budun from Turkey researched how bees communicate and found that they send out electrical signals or sound frequencies that when recorded and played back relieve human tinnitus. Betul created Magnetic Resonance Bee Earphones that have no side effects and have been 87% successful in treating patients with tinnitus.
