Inactive Lifestyle Adds 8  Years to Biological Age

It's no secret that physical activity helps us age healthier. But according to a new study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology, physical activity can help us age slower.
In the study, researchers at the University of California-San Diego tracked 1,481 senior women, comparing the relationship between the women's levels of activity and the biological age of their cells. The results showed that inactive women had a biological age a full 8 years higher than the women who exercised regularly.

Hearing loss currently affects more than 36 million Americans today. Although hearing problems are commonly associated with the normal aging process, more than half of all hearing-impaired persons are younger than 65. With the increased use of personal music players (MP3s) and earbuds, the number of Americans experiencing hearing loss at a younger age is growing.
On average, most Americans consider hearing loss a condition that is simply associated with aging, and don't know how to recognize the condition or who is qualified to diagnose and treat the condition. In an effort to raise public awareness for the growing number of Americans suffering from hearing loss, the American Academy of Audiology is celebrating Better Hearing Month this May.
As part of Better Hearing Month, consumers are encouraged to be more aware of their hearing health. Hearing loss can be caused by exposure to loud noises; ear infections, trauma, or ear disease; harm to the inner ear and ear drum; illness or certain medications; and deterioration due to normal aging process.

An audiologist is a highly educated and clinically experienced health-care professional who specialize in evaluating, diagnosing, and treating people with hearing loss and balance disorders. Hearing loss can affect patients of all ages-newborns, infants, babies, toddlers, children, teens, adults, and the elderly.

You may have a problem with your hearing and need to see an audiologist, if you have trouble hearing conversation in a noisy environment such as a restaurant, are unable to hear people talk to you without looking at them, or have a constant ringing or pain in your ears.
The first step in treatment of a hearing problem is a hearing evaluation by an audiologist. Although most hearing loss is permanent, an audiologist can determine the best treatment, which may include hearing aids, assistive listening devices, and hearing rehabilitation.If you believe you have a problem hearing, speak to your primary care physician and ask for a referral to an audiologist.
