We investigated the association of exposure to road traffic noise with body mass index (BMI) and waist circumference in the Danish Nurse Cohort. Methods: We used data on 15,501 female nurses (aged >44 years) from the nationwide Danish Nurse Cohort who, in 1999, reported information on self-measured height, weight and waist circumference, together with information on socioeconomic status, lifestyle, work and health. Road traffic noise at the most exposed fa{\cc}ade of the residence was estimated using Nord2000 as the annual mean of a weighted 24 h average (L den ). We used multiple linear regression models to examine associations of road traffic noise levels in 1999 (1-year mean) with BMI and waist circumference, adjusting for potential confounders, and evaluated effect-modification by degree of urbanization, air pollution levels, night shift work, job strain, sedative use, sleep aid use, and family history of obesity. Results: We did not observe associations between road traffic noise (per 10 dB increase in the 1-year mean L den ) and BMI (kg/m 2 ) (beta: 0.00; 95{\%} confidence interval CI: −0.07, 0.07) or waist circumference (cm) (−0.09; −0.31, 0.13) in the fully adjusted model. We found significant effect modification of job strain and degree of urbanization on the associations between L den and both BMI and waist circumference. Job strained nurses were associated with a 0.41 BMI-point increase, (0.06–0.76) and a 1.00 cm increase in waist circumference (0.00–2.00). Nurses living in urban areas had a statistically significant positive association of L den with BMI (0.26; 0.11–0.42), whilst no association was found for nurses living in suburban and rural areas. Conclusion: Our results suggest that road traffic noise exposure in nurses with particular susceptibilities, such as those with job strain, or living in urban areas may lead to increased BMI, a marker of adiposity.",
