On March 1, Digital Hearing Victor Harbor hosted a Go Bananas event as a part of Hearing Awareness Week, leading up to World Hearing Day on March 3.

Potassium levels decrease with age and as a result more people are prone to age-related hearing loss. Currently, 46 per cent of Victor Harbor residents are over the age of 60, so it’s more important than ever for locals to test their ears at 60 years.

Eating potassium-rich foods like bananas can help to help preserve good hearing.
