  NoiseWatch has recently learned: "The evidence of a causal relationship 
between the long-term effects of exposure to noise and ischaemic heart 
disease is considered sufficient in the case of air and road traffic 
(Health Council of the Netherlands, 1994). 
  We will try to find the source documents. If anyone has knowledge of this 
work please do pipe in.
