1.  Regular use of pain relief medicine appears to increase men's risk of hearing loss, expecially among middle-aged men, according to an American Journal of Medicine study. Researchers surveyed nearly 27,000 men evey two years from 1986 to 2004. Men who used pain relievers a least twice a week were more likely than no-users to be diagnosed with hearing loss. Aspirin users were 12% more likely, those on ibuprufen-like drugs were 21% more likely and users of acetaminophen, 22% more likely. Boston Globe 8Mr10 —( article HERE )
