Studies show that actively using hearing aids reduces the risk of cognitive decline by improving communication and social interaction for individuals with hearing loss.
According to research, by far the single most important thing we can do to maintain our brains as we age is to stay mentally engaged, through an active social life with friends, family and business associates. Healthy hearing is a key part of staying involved with people and the world around us. But as we age, for many of us, our hearing ability declines, along with cognition. A new study by Dr. Helene Amieva documented the relationship between hearing loss and cognitive decline among a group of nearly 4,000 volunteers over a 25-year period.
Exposure to loud noises, especially on a consistent basis, can increase your risk of developing tinnitus. It is vital to wear hearing protection devices and have regular hearing screenings to minimize the risk of noise-induced hearing damage and tinnitus.
