A new study (JAMA Otolaryngology) shows a strong link between anemia and hearing loss. Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine researchers suggest that reduced blood flow associated with the reduction of red blood cells in anemia may cause damage to the inner ear. Iron deficiency anemia may reduce oxygen to the important tissues in the cochlea. Note: Eat dark green leafy vegetables, beans, dried fruit and possibly red meat.
