Healthy eating may help protect hearing in women, says study
Healthy eating may help protect hearing in women , A healthy diet can not only help you stay fit, but it can also lower the risk of hearing loss in women, according to a new study. The findings were published in the Journal of Nutrition and suggested that healthy eating patterns may reduce the risk of hearing loss by 30 per cent.
New Delhi, May 13 (ANI): Healthy eating habit in women may help protect hearing in women, according to a new study. The research conducted by the Brigham and Women’s Hospital found that patterns of healthy eating may lower risk of hearing loss by 30 percent.
In the new study, researchers examined the relation between three different diets and risk of developing hearing loss: The Alternate Mediterranean diet (AMED), Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH), and the Alternative Healthy Eating Index-2010 (AHEI-2010) in 70,966 women who were followed for 22 years and found that eating a healthy diet is associated with a lower risk of acquired hearing loss in women.
The researchers collected detailed information on dietary intake every four years.
They found that women whose diets most closely resembled the AMED or DASH dietary patterns had an approximately 30 per cent lower risk of moderate or worse hearing loss, compared with women whose diets resembled these dietary patterns the least.
“Interestingly, we observed that those following an overall healthy diet had a lower risk of moderate or worse hearing loss,” Curhan said.
In a separate study of over 33,000 women for whom detailed hearing-related information had been collected suggested that the magnitude of the reduced risk may be even greater than 30 per cent, and may also pertain to the AHEI-2010, the researchers noted.
