Noise can prevent progressive sensorineural hearing loss

Research paper has been published in J Comp Neurol. 2004 May 3;472(3):358-70. The research indicated that prolonged exposure to augmented acoustic environment on auditory system of middle-aged mice can prevent outer hair loss in the cochlear and save the neurons in the cochlear nucleus. It also implicates a sex difference.
According to the research, women should use hearing aid earlier to fight hearing loss after menopause or afflicted with hearing loss associated with menopause.
