8. What is amazing is the difference between hearing loss in men and women.
Usually, men lose their hearing first. It's not just in hearing that men
go downhill first either. They seem to go down in all physical areas faster

the higher pitches starting at age 30 while women don't lose the higher
pitches until about age 50.
