High Aircraft Noise for Longer Time Causes Cardiovascular Diseases

High aircraft noise for longer time causes cardiovascular diseases, according to the latest research. Recently a team of researchers discovered an enzyme situated in the inflammatory cells of the body that are responsible to cause cardiovascular damage triggered due to the high noise of air ship.

There have been different studies showing that an exposure to such aircraft noise for longer time can eventually prompt a significantly increased risk of developing cardiovascular diseases. The findings of the study notify that removing the enzymes phagocytic NADPH oxidase thoroughly restrains vascular damage.

The researchers also managed to indicate in the published review by the European Heart Journal that a noise at night time affects comparatively more destructively. For the same, the team said that, “The findings may enable us to develop drug strategies to reduce the negative effects of aircraft noise for our body.”

Prof. Thomas Munzel from the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) in Germany said in a statement that, “Elimination of the enzyme phagocytic NADPH oxidase, which is located mainly in inflammatory cells, completely avoids aircraft noise-induced negative effects on vessels and brain.”

In addition, they found a neuronal nitric oxide (NO) synthase, which is main enzyme residing influencing the brain’s part of memory and learning. Functions of nitric oxide synthase get impaired due to longer aircraft noise that triggers cognitive developmental disorders among children.

JGU’s Andreas Daiber stated that, “We demonstrate for the first time that ‘night-time noise’, i.e., noise during the sleep phase of the mice, and not the noise during the waking phase is responsible for vascular dysfunction.”
