#HearingFactFriday: A healthy diet can help reduce the risk of hearing loss

Hey moms! Are you looking for another reason to eat well? We’re guessing you already know a million reasons why. But if you want just one more, this one is pretty compelling.

According to a study of 71,000 female nurses over a period of 22 years, women who ate a healthy diet reduced their risk of hearing loss by 30 percent.

What constitutes a healthy diet? According to the study’s author, it wasn’t a specific diet so much as a pattern of healthy eating: meaning a good balance of more vegetables, fruits, legumes and whole grains — and less processed meat, refined sugar, alcohol and fruit juices.

You don’t need us to tell you why eating healthy is important. But we feel it’s our job to tell you why hearing loss is something you should avoid or put off — and why you should treat it ASAP if and when it does happen.

Actually, we already have. In blogs like this one about dementia and pages like this that explain the many benefits of hearing loss treatment.
