Figure 2: Cardiovascular risk due to different sources of transportation noises. Cardiovascular harms to health start before effects on hearing (50 dB vs. 70 dB). Some risks are more pronounced than others even for the same source (e.g., the risk for myocardial infarction is greater than the risk of stroke related to exposure to aircraft noise). It is important to note that the data serve mainly illustrative purposes since they were retrieved from different studies using a different methodology in distinct populations, hampering scientifically significant comparative conclusions[19],[20],[21],[22],[23],[24],[25],[26],[27],[28],[29],[30]
