Omega-3 And Fish Consumption Could Cut Risk Of Age-Related Hearing Loss

Researchers have found that intake of omega-3 PUFA (polyunsaturated fatty acid) could help prevent or delay presbycusis, age-related hearing loss. The Blue Mountains Hearing Study is based on a population-based survey of 2956 participants who completed a semiquantitative food-frequency questionnaire to capture dietary data, from which PUFA and fish consumption was estimated. Findings suggest an inverse association between the consumption of long-chain omega-3 PUFAs and hearing loss, with the benefit rising with intake: subjects who had over two servings of fish per week had a smaller risk (42%) of developing presbycusis compared with those who had <1 serving="serving" of="of" fish="fish" per="per">
