Hearing aids may reduce your risk of dementia by half, study says

This CNN article discusses a recent study that suggests that hearing loss may increase the risk of developing dementia.

The study found that people with hearing loss had a higher risk of developing dementia than those without hearing loss and that the risk increased with the severity of hearing loss.

The study also found that wearing hearing aids may reduce the risk of dementia in people with hearing loss. The researchers believe that this may be because hearing aids can help improve communication and social engagement, which may help protect the brain from the cognitive decline associated with dementia.

Overall, the study suggests that hearing loss may be a risk factor for dementia and that hearing aids may be a potential treatment for reducing that risk
