Avoid Loud Noises

If you live near a large highway, or work in a loud area, you may want to consider how all the noise is affecting your heart. Studies have shown that living or working in a loud place for at least a year and a half are two to three times more likely to have heart problems. This is in part because loud noises (even sitting in traffic) are connected to higher levels in stress hormones, leading to a heart attack.JOHN WOIKE
