Long-term exposure to road traffic noise, ambient air pollution, and cardiovascular risk factors in the HUNT and lifelines cohorts

Researchers in this study used a simplified version of the Common Noise Assessment Methods in Europe (CNOSSOS-EU) to build a model of exposure to noise from highway traffic. They used a land-use regression model to determine air-pollution levels at the homes of study subjects. The authors analyzed blood chemistry from study subjects and determined that there is a connection between heart-disease risk and pollution from noise and road-vehicle emissions.
