Advanced age is the most common cause of hearing loss. One out of three people aged 65-74
has some level of hearing loss. After age 75, that ratio goes up to one out of every two
people. Researchers don't fully understand why hearing decreases with age. It could be
that lifetime exposure to noise and other damaging factors slowly wear down the ears'
delicate mechanics. Genes may also play a role.
Noise wears down hearing if it's loud or continuous. In some workplaces, ears are exposed
to dangerous noise levels every day. To understand the impact of noise, we must consider
this: 44% of carpenters and 48% of plumbers report some hearing loss. Other noisy lines
of work include the military, mining, manufacturing, agriculture, and transportation.
Even musicians, who literally create music for our ears, are at risk for noise-induced
hearing loss. Some now wear special earplugs to protect their ears when they perform.
The earplugs allow them to hear music without harming their ears' inner workings.
There are many different causes of hearing loss. It can be caused by home- or work-related
factors, it can be hereditary, or it can just be a part of the aging process. Hearing loss
can be triggered by a blast of loud noise, infections, the effects of toxins, by injury,
or hereditary factors. The good news is that there are now solutions to successfully
correct most types of hearing loss.
