Hearing Loss Starting Earlier
If you’re like many people, you probably attribute hearing loss with age. While your risk does increase over the years, hearing loss is starting earlier. In fact, research from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports 40 million Americans between the ages of 20 and 69 have hearing damage. Not to mention, as much as 17% of adolescents between the ages of 12 to 19 have some evidence of hearing loss in one or both ears.
