The jackhammer outside the window, the honking horns — for many of us, loud noise can be a source of stress or a frequent annoyance.

Heavy road traffic, loud office conversations, live music concerts, noise from construction sites or even loud telephones can cause generalized discomfort, difficulty sleeping and irritation.

A new study released today in the Journal of The American College of Cardiology shows that noise pollution may have a significant impact on cardiovascular health.
