The European Respiratory Society published that these results may be extrapolated to any town that registering noise levels similar to those existing in the aforementioned city.

According to the authors of the article, the cause of the increase in mortality from respiratory causes could be linked to the rise of cortisone levels in the blood, hormone released in stressful situations, which is also related to the noise.
