Abstract: It has been suggested that noise exposure is associated with ischemic heart disease risk, but epidemiological evidence is still limited. Objectives: We studied whether road traffic noise exposure increases the risk of myocardial infarction (MI). Design and Methods: We conducted population-based prospective casecontrol study, which involved 1042 MI cases and 2341 controls. We measured traffic-related noise levels at the 117 electoral districts and linked these levels to residential addresses. We used multiple logistic regression to assess effect of noise exposure on MI risk. Results: After adjustment for age, smoking, blood pressure, body mass index, and psychological stress the risk of MI was higher for the men exposed to 70–75 dBA (OR 1,17; 95 % CI 0.99–1.39) and to >75 dBA (OR 1.30; 95 % CI 0.88–1.92). OR for continuous exposure parameter was 1.16; 95 % CI 1.00–1.39. Conclusion: Our results indicate a relationship between traffic noise exposure and MI risk. However these findings may be attributable also to other environmental risk factors
