Aim of this study obtained the effects of exposure to industrial noise on serum lipid profile in workers who are exposed to noise at work. The studied included 36 male workers as high level noise exposure in Babylon electrical station and 24 non workers as a control group ,that aged 32-48 years in both them. Mean of serum Triglyceride (TG), total Cholesterol (TC), high density lipoprotein (HDL) ,low and very low density lipoprotein (LDL andVLDL)for exposure group were179.92,369.33,56.76,277.55 and 35.98 mg/dlbutnon exposuregroup were102.84,231.77,57.79,153.40 and 20.57 mg/dl respectively. Mean serum TG,TC, LDL and VLDL between two groups were different,this difference were statistically significant (P=0.00,0.00,0.00 and 0.00).There was no significant difference between two groups in HDL levels. This study did finda significant relationship between exposure to noise and serum lipid profile except HDL.
