Do you want to prevent hearing loss. Eat some veggies! We used to think hearing loss was caused when tiny hair cells in the inner ear were torn apart by vibrations from loud noises, but thanks to studies done by people like hearing expert Colleen Le Prell, PhD we now know that part of the problem is the accumulation of free radicals, which are toxic to hair cells. Animal studies show that antioxidants may neutralize free radicals, protecting against both short-and long-term damage. This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t worry about loud noises though it means that free radicals are also dangerous to your hearing! So a good diet is key to maintaining your hearing.
