Abstract

We compared the prevalence of hypertension in subjects that lived on main roads with those that lived in side streets. An odds ratio of 1.310 (95% CI = 1.052-1.631) was found for those who lived on the main roads. In this traffic-exposed subgroup, subjects that had the living and the bedroom facing the road an odds ratio of 1.736 (CI = 0.673-1.882) was found in comparison with those who had both rooms on the rear side of the house. In subjects that lived on side streets the location of the rooms was meaningless (OR = 1.102, CI = 0.648-1.874).
