According to the World Health Organization, one out of 20 people experiences debilitating hearing loss.
In this same report, the authors of this study predict that this number will double by the time we reach 2050. That means over 900 million people will have severe hearing loss.
Along with this surge in hearing loss comes the rise in better hearing aid technology. The rising numbers can be reduced by being more aware of hearing loss/noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) and taking precautions whenever possible. Receiving treatment as soon as you begin to experience hearing loss can make it more manageable and improve your overall health.
