Lancet publication for Institute of Cardiovascular and Medical Sciences and Institute of Health and Wellbeing

Dr Carlos Celis-Morales, Research Fellow and Professor Jason Gill, Professor of Cardiometabolic Health, both from the Institute of Cardiovascular and Medical Sciences, along with researchers from the Institute of Health and Wellbeing, have published a report in the Lancet Public Health. The study examines whether deprivation modifies the association between an extended score of lifestyle-related risk factors and health outcomes and can be found here.

Combinations of lifestyle factors, including smoking and alcohol and their effect on health and their role in increasing mortality are well documented. However, additional effects of emerging factors such as television viewing time are not. The effect of socioeconomic deprivation on these extended lifestyle risks also remains unclear. The researchers aimed to examine whether deprivation modifies the association between an extended score of lifestyle related risk factors and health outcomes.
