Smoking

Smokers have been shown to have a 70% higher risk of having hearing loss than non-smokers. Research has also shown that non-smokers who are living with a smoker and exposed frequently are twice as likely to develop hearing loss. The longer the individual smokes or is exposed to smoke, the greater the damage to their hearing health. There are chemicals (nicotine) in cigarettes that are known to deplete oxygen levels and constrict blood vessels in areas throughout the body, one area being the inner ear, which is responsible for maintaining hair cell health.
