The NordSOUND project

NordSOUND is a research project with the objective to study single and joint effects of traffic and occupational noise on development of cardiovascular disease, obesity, cancer, pregnancy complications, low birth weight, perinatal mortality, and congenital malformations.

The study will also estimate the burden of disease resulting from noise and the socio-economic inequalities in the distribution of traffic noise and the relationship between noise and health.

NordSOUND is funded by a NordForsk grant and runs from October 2017 to September 2021. It is headed by Senior Researcher Mette Sørensen, Danish Cancer Society Research Center.
