Extra Fish Consumption Prevents Hearing Loss

Women who eat fish regularly have a lower risk of developing hearing loss compared to women who rarely or never eat fish, according to a study.

Researchers speculate that the Omega-3 fatty acids in fish may help maintain good blood flow to the inner ear, BBChealth reported.

These are two questions commonly used to screen for hearing loss, which affects more than one-third of people over age 65.

Women who ate two or more servings of fish per week had a 20 percent lower risk of hearing loss, according to researchers.

Eating any type of fish – whether it’s tuna, dark fish [like salmon] or light fish was associated with a lower risk.

The omega-3 fatty acids found in fatty fish are linked to a range of health benefits, including cutting the risk of heart disease, depression and possibly, memory loss.

The findings come by way of the Nurses’ long-term research study that includes more than 100,000 nurses.

The nurses were aged 27 to 42 when they started completing detailed surveys about what they ate and drank. And they were also asked whether they had a hearing problem and, if so, at what age they first noticed it.

The blood flow to the inner ear needs to be very well-regulated and

higher fish consumption may help maintain adequate cochlear blood flow, this could help protect against hearing damage.
