Nutrition and Hearing Loss in Children


The CDC says poor nutrition in childhood can lead to an increased risk for developing health conditions such as high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, osteoporosis, and now even hearing loss. A new study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that young adults who suffered from poor nutrition in early childhood were twice as likely to suffer hearing loss than their peers.
