#HearingFactFriday: 15 percent of adults report trouble hearing

Data from the 2012 National Health Interview Survey, conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, concluded that 15 percent of adult Americans (37.5 million) had hearing trouble — which, believe it or not, exceeded the number of adults reporting vision trouble (only 9 percent).

No wonder hearing loss is the third most common health issue for adults, trailing only arthritis and heart disease.
