Researchers Find Increased Risk of Hearing Loss Among Smokers.
New research published in Nicotine & Tobacco Research, has shown evidence that smoking is associated with hearing loss, according to a news release from the journal’s publisher, Oxford Press.
The study—which included 50,000 participants over an 8-year period—looked at data from annual health checkups, which included factors such as smoking status, number of cigarettes smoked per day, and the duration of smoking cessation on hearing loss, according to the release. Researchers calculated a 1.2 to 1.6 increased risk of hearing loss among smokers as compared to those who had never smoked before.
The risk of hearing loss decreased five years after smoking cessation.
