#133: “As men and women get older their ability to hear high pitched sounds diminishes. The ability to taste sweet foods also decreases with age.”
The sense of hearing decreasing actually has a fancy name: presbycusis. So it does happen. There’s also a special ringtone for teenagers and young adults that older adults can’t hear.
Taste and smell, which work together, also decrease as people get older. The ability to taste salty and sweet decreases after about age 60, if it does happen. This happens because as you get older, you also lose taste buds.
