This organization in the UK is working toward improving access to businesses for people with hearing loss. Amazing!
Here is a recent post indicating they expect a huge increase in the rate ot hearing loss over 15 years. Currently, their estimated percentage of citizens with hearing loss is slightly lower than the US. They expect it to match the US very shortly. I am interested to know if rates of heart disease and diabetes, as well as differences in their age demographics have lead to this. Or are other factors like noise induced hearing loss in young adults contributing more significantly?
