Adult hearing loss is very common as we age. In fact, it is estimated that one-third of adults over 65 suffer from it. It usually starts with a lesser ability to hear high frequencies and by age 65 it begins to affect lower frequencies. Hearing loss can interfere not only with one's social life but also one's safety.
The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association has some good information about the causes of hearing loss on their website .
The National Institute of Health also has some good information on it's website.
While eMedicine Health has a very detailed explanation of it, if you'd like to dig even deeper.
