Living Near Noisy Airport Will Increase High Blood Pressure Risk

A new study has found that living near a noisy airport can increase the risk of high blood pressure.

The study led by Charlotta Eriksson at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm found that constant exposure to high levels of noise might damage health.

In the study 2,700 men living near Stockholm Arlanda airport between 1992 and 2004 were examined.

The analysis found that the men exposed to an average daily noise level of more than 50 decibels were 19 per cent more likely to have high blood pressure.

Older men seemed most affected by the noise, the study said.

Eriksson said that the effect could be because of prolonged exposure.

"This might be due to prolonged exposure. Or it may be that older people are more sensitive to noise," Times Online quoted him, as saying.

The study is published in the journal Epidemiology.
