Bruit combiné des trafics routier, ferroviaire et aérien : plus néfaste qu’habituellement estimé ? Volume 18, issue 6, November-December 2019



This news is based on the following article: Seidler A, Hegewald J, Seidler AL, Schubert M, Zeeb H. Is the whole more than the sum of Its parts? Health effects of different types of trafic noise combined. Int J Environ Res Public Health 2019 May 13 ; 16(9). doi : 10.3390/ijerph16091665


Data from a huge German case-control study reporting the effects of residential exposure to road, rail, and air traffic noise on the risks of cardiovascular disease and depression were used to compare two models for assessing the impact of total exposure to traffic noise. The findings cast doubt on the value of the conventional method.
