Traffic Can Lead To Death

Written by Traffic Specialist Joel Hillan

Researchers in Denmark say traffic noise can give you a heart attack.

After following 50,000 people, 12% had a higher risk of heart attack with every ten decibels of noise.

Researchers say traffic noise increases stress, can prevent sleep and may increase cardiac arrest.
