Aging greatly affects the function and acuity of the ears, nose, and throat. Contributing factors may include wear and tear caused by overuse of the voice, exposure to loud noise, and the cumulative effect of infections, as well as the effect of substances such as drugs, alcohol, and tobacco. The sense of smell and taste may also decline with age. Listen to AGING MATTERS on WERA-LP 96.7 FM next Tuesday, February 20 at 2:00 pm when host Cheryl Beversdorf talks with Patrick Maiberger, M.D., ENT/Head and Neck Surgeon, about the effects of aging on the ears, nose, and throat, and the causes, symptoms, diagnoses and treatments of conditions affecting these areas of the body.
