The Answer is Yes. Hearing loss can run in our genes. In fact, hearing loss can be caused by gene mutations, which can result in several forms of hearing loss. Some of these genes allow people to be more susceptible to age-related hearing loss, noise-induced hearing loss, ototoxicity and inner ear infections that can result in permanent hearing loss.

Yup, we’re talking about ear wax. Everyone has it, no one really likes it, so what does it do and what happens when we have too much ear wax?

Let’s start with a little brief anatomy lesson. Inside of our ears, in our canals, we all have little hair follicles and glands. This area produces an oily substance called cerumen. You probably guessed it, but we call this substance ear wax. Ear wax has a specific function, which is to protect our ear canals from all kinds of things, such as bacteria, dust, dirt, etc. Ear wax also protects our ear canals against water and excess moisture. In fact, ear wax is very natural and very healthy to have in your ears.
