Today, twice as many people have hearing loss as in the 1980s. And sadly the trend isn’t improving. A recent report predicted that the number of U.S. adults with hearing loss will rise to nearly a quarter of the population in the next 40 years.

Pharmacy Symbols and Their Meanings



Mortar and PestleThe mortar and pestle has long been used as a pharmaceutical symbol. Pharmacists would use the mortar and pestle to crush and mix ingredients to cure diseases. The mortar and pestle are tools of traditional pharmacy, an easily recognizable visual motif.

Rx is the symbol meaning "prescription". According to most sources, it's an abbreviation of the Latin word "recipere" and appears at the start of prescriptions. Literally, the word recipe means simply "Take..." as prescribed and compounded by the apothecary.
