If you’re a woman who wants another reason to eat healthier, look no further!
According to a study conducted by Dr. Sharon Curhan, from Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, women who generally had a healthy diet showed a lower risk of moderate or worsening hearing loss.
For 22 years, analysts studied data from approximately 71,000 women in the Nurses’ Health Study II (This is one of the largest anticipated investigations into the risk factors for leading chronic diseases in women.).
Women with eating habits that were similar to the Alternate Mediterranean Diet (AMED), or the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH), showed to be 30 percent less likely to experience moderate or severe hearing loss than individuals who followed an eating habit that was least like those diets.

Although researchers cannot pinpoint an unequivocal cause-and-effect between women’s diet and hearing loss, it’s still a good idea to maintain an overall healthy eating habit to reduce any risks.
