What if you were given the chance to regain your hearing back? Ya, you heard me, or rather read it right, what if you were told you were given the chance to hear again? Something would happen that you would literally get your hearing back. Would you be excited? Mad, or think nothing of it. I ask because there is new medical information coming out about doing stem cell on the hair cells inside your ears. Doing so if this worked would basically regrow the nerves damaged in your ear, and your hearing would be able to come back!
“Traditionally, scientists have considered people's hair cells--and good hearing--to be irreplaceable. However, genetics research, work with stem cells, and studies of the delicate architecture of the inner ear now suggest that it may be possible to replace lost hair cells and thus restore hearing. And Steyger's research on how certain drugs damage hair cells may someday prevent others from facing a silent future.”
Sounds promising don’t it? To be able to regain hearing in a more permanent way. What a beauty! I would to hear and see what you guys think, and ask if this becomes official and approved, would you guys with hearing loss, and find out you are eligible for this would you go through with this?
