Watch your waistline, keep your hearing.
A new study finds the heavier a person, the greater their chance of hearing loss.
Researchers at Brigham Young Woman's Hospital found women who were considered obese, with a Body Mass Index of 30 to 34, were 17 - percent more likely to lose their hearing.
People with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 40 or greater had a 25% higher risk of hearing loss.
Researchers believe the link could be caused by inflammation from obesity, type two diabetes or heart disease.
