Think you’re safe from hearing loss just because you aren’t old enough yet? Widex, international hearing aid manufacturer, has put together some numbers that may surprise you. For example, 15% of Americans between the ages of 20 and 69 have hearing loss that may have been caused by noise exposure. Also 30% of women reported that their hearing loss started when they were between 40 and 59. You can see the infographic here: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/855050679224013922/
Being hearing health conscious is something you should be starting now, no matter your age. Taking action now can help prevent loneliness or depression resulting from hearing loss later.
