Smoking can damage your hearing

People who smoke not only damage their airways and blood vessels, but also significantly harm their hearing. One study showed that smoking a cigarette every day increases the risk of hearing loss.

The health of young smokers is also at risk. Adolescents exposed to cigarette smoke were two to three times more likely to experience hearing loss than those with no or little exposure to cigarettes.

In addition, 80 percent of participants in the study were unaware that their health was being affected and that smoking could also cause tinnitus and dizziness.
