This Video Tells You How Old Your Ears Are
Lifestyle| | By Lauren Boudreau
We’ve all taken hearing tests during physicals at the doctor’s office, but we’re never told how old our ears are in terms of hearing ability.
Luckily, APPScience has uploaded a new video to YouTube that tells you the age of your ears according to how many different pitches you can hear. The video explains that unlike other organs in your body, the ear does not have the ability to regenerate. Your hair cells are responsible for picking up frequencies and sending them to the brain, but as you age, they get damaged through exposure to loud noises.
The higher pitches are the ones that go first.
So, how many can you hear?
