    Response to: Exposure to occupational noise and cardiovascular disease in the United States: the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 1999-2004. Gan et al. 68:183-190 doi:10.1136/oem.2010.055269

    Gan et al, 2011 [1] concluded that long-term, occupational noise exposure was associated with increased prevalence of coronary heart disease (CHD), for which the authors report a clear exposure-response relationship that was particularly strong for participants aged < 50 years, men and current smokers. We do not believe the results support these conclusions, particularly in light of notable study limitations.
