| ||Resources from
(HealthDay News) -- About 1 in 3 Americans between the ages of 65 and 74 has hearing loss. And about half of those over 75 have trouble hearing.
Though age-related hearing loss is difficult to prevent, noise-induced hearing loss can be minimized. People should actively reduce exposure to loud noise, the U.S. National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders says.
The agency encourages people to be aware of damaging noises such as loud music, firearms, snowmobiles, lawn mowers and leaf blowers. Among the institute's suggestions are:
- Avoid loud noises.
- Reduce the amount of time exposed to loud noises.
- Protect ears with earplugs or earmuffs.
