Behind cardiovascular disease and arthritis, hearing loss is the third most prevalent chronic health condition in adulthood.1 There are numerous possible causes of hearing loss, which include repeated exposure to hazardous levels of noise, viral-based diseases, ototoxic medications, neurochemical changes, anoxia, smoking, cardiovascular disease, and genetics, and although some of these predisposing factors are not modifiable (e.g., genetics), some are preventable.
