Traffic-related noise accounts for over 1 million healthy years of life lost annually to ill health, disability or early death in the western countries in the WHO European Region. This is the main conclusion of the first report assessing the burden of disease from environmental noise in Europe, released today by WHO/Europe. Noise causes or contributes to not only annoyance and sleep.   Road traffic is the most important source of community noise. Even though very high levels of traffic noise, i.e. average day-night A-weighted equivalent noise level exceeding 65dB(A), seem to have stabilized in some countries, the group living in dwellings exposed to dB(A) is increasing[] In total approximately 30% of the population in the European Union Cited by:
