Not something to ignore
Hearing health is not something to ignore. According to the Public Hearing Institute, hearing loss affects one in five people over the age of 60 … a total of 35 million Americans. It cuts across age, gender, economic strata and location. Yet it's largely going unnoticed.
But it shouldn't be. Untreated hearing loss can have two serious impacts on your life. First, there's the loss of your hearing itself. As your hearing declines, you strain to hear conversations and you miss out on information. Life becomes that much more stressful and challenging.
