New web site on tinnitus

Tinnitus_-_girl_ears_with_writingNEW YORK–The Hearing Health Foundation has launched a web site focusing on tinnitus. There, people who have the condition as well as healthcare professionals can learn more about tinnitus, which chronically affects 5% to 10% of the U.S. adult population. The site discusses the causes of tinnitus and explains the various treatments available to people who suffer from its often-tormenting symptoms.

The web site provides information on research into a cure for tinnitus, including a discussion of The Hearing Restoration Project. According to the Hearing Health Foundation (HHF), which supports that project, participating scientists are “on the brink of developing a genuine cure for most forms of acquired hearing loss by regenerating the inner ear hair cells that enable hearing.”

Founded in 1958, the HHF is devoted to preventing and curing hearing loss through groundbreaking research.
