Abstract

There is a growing body of evidence that exposure to transportation noise can increase the risk for ischemic heart disease (IHD). However, there are significant variations in the pooled exposure-response relationships (ERRs) derived by recent meta-analyses which lead to uncertainties in health impact assessments and public health policy decision-making. We aimed to update recent meta-analyses investigating the effects of road, railway, and aircraft transportation noise exposure on IHD mortality and morbidity. We included relevant studies from two meta-analyses and one literature review covering the years 1994-2020. We conducted a systematic literature review using the WHO search strategy to identify new studies published until February 2022 and assessed risk of bias for each retained study. The pooled exposure-response associations were calculated using a random effects model. We identified nine new studies for IHD incidence and mortality. Across all traffic sources, statistically significant risk estimates were observed for IHD incidence (1.02 [1.00, 1.03]) and mortality (1.02 [1.00, 1.03]) per 10dB Lden respectively.
