Again, Aircraft Noise Associated with Mortality

Once again a medical study has shown that aircraft noise causes serious health problems. As aviation noise becomes louder the incident of heart attack increases.

Aircraft noise was associated with mortality from myocardial infarction, with a dose-response relationship for level and duration of exposure. The association does not appear to be explained by exposure to particulate matter air pollution, education, or socioeconomic status of the municipality.

The complete study results can be found here:
