Hereditary factors also contribute to hearing loss, as much as living or working in a noisy environment does. But what may come as a surprise, is the link between cardiovascular disease and loss of hearing.

The report published in the current online edition of the Archives of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery, underlines the immense benefit of regular exercise in preventing or delaying loss of hearing.

Further, ensuring one works or lives in a ear-friendly environment can also offset risks of hearing loss.
