GIVE UP SMOK­ING

An ex­ten­sive study by re­searchers at the Univer­sity of Manch­ester found that smok­ing in­creases the like­li­hood of hear­ing loss by 15.1pc, and the ef­fects are cu­mu­la­tive. Com­ment­ing on the re­search, study lead, Dr Piers Dawes, said: “We found the more pack­ets you smoke per week and the longer you smoke, the greater the risk you will dam­age your hear­ing.”
