About Hearing Loss
A Major Health Crisis that can be helped.
Did you know about 20 percent of Americans, 48 million, report some degree of hearing loss. At age 65, one out of three people has a hearing loss and over 60 percent of them are still in the workforce or an educational setting. Hearing loss is a major public health issue that is the third most common physical condition after arthritis and heart disease. In adults, the most common causes of hearing loss are noise and aging. There is a strong relationship between age and reported hearing loss. Sudden, noise-induced hearing loss from gunfire and explosions is the number one disability caused by combat in current wars. More often than not severe tinnitus (or ringing in the ears) will accompany the hearing loss and may be just as debilitating as the hearing loss itself.
