INFOGRAPHIC: Folic Acid and Hearing Loss

Recent research by the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery Foundation found that 20 per cent of men over the age of 60 with a high intake of folic acid lowered their risk of developing hearing loss. Folic Acid is a vitamin B and it’s thought to prevent hearing loss by either lowering homocysteine, a possible cause of certain types of hearing loss or increasing the blood flow to key structures in the ear.
