Why do people get hoarser voice in 70s?

Why do people get hoarser voice in 70s?

Poor technique : Good breathing and energy in the body lead to a good voice. As we age often people's energy levels drop and they lose muscle tone. Shallower breathing with less energy equals a weaker voice. In addition, people who age sometimes lose their hearing and they don't hear themselves as well.
