CBS Philadelphia reports that a study has found smoking impacts hearing loss. Daily smokers have a higher likelihood of suffering hearing loss than non-smokers.
The risk of hearing loss went down five years after quitting.
According to CBS Philadelphia, this study looked at the health records of more than 50,000 people over a period of eight years.
