The researchers found no clear link between noise pollution and increased stroke risk."Long-term exposure to fine-particle dust is associated with a higher risk of stroke, regardless of the subject's exposure to noise at his or her home address," said one of the study authors Barbara Hoffmann from Heinrich-Heine-University Dusseldorf in Germany.

Information regarding stroke or cardiovascular disease occurrence and/or associated mortality was collected annually.
