Drinking coffee may prevent tinnitus, or chronic ringing of the ears, according to new research from Brigham and Women’s hospital in Boston. Doctors previously thought that people with tinnitus should give up drinking coffee, in fear that caffeine may increase symptoms. The study, published in the August edition of the American Journal of Medicine, tracked 65,000 women over a period of 18 years and found that those who drank more coffee reduced their odds of developing the condition.
Compared to women who drank one and a half cups of coffee every day, the incidence of reported tinnitus was 15% lower in women who drank five cups per day.
NewsHour science correspondent Miles O’Brien reports on the science behind tinnitus and the search for a cure. Researchers are still unclear as to exactly how increased caffeine levels affect the condition.
