Living near an airport isn't just a nuisance for your ears. A new Harvard study finds that elderly people consistently exposed to aircraft noise, are at an increased risk of being hospitalized for cardiovascular disease. Data shows the noise affects blood pressure, stress, and sleep -- all things that have a big impact on heart health. Study authors say those residing close to airports should take measures to soundproof their homes.
