Inequalities in all-cause and cause-specific mortality across the life course by wealth and income in Sweden: a register-based cohort study

Wealth inequalities are increasing in many countries, but their relationship to health is little studied. We investigated the association between individual wealth and mortality across the adult life course in Sweden.. ..Large inequalities in mortality by wealth were observed and their association with mortality remained more stable across the adult life course than inequalities by income-based measures. Men experienced greater inequalities across all ages (e.g. … Continue reading Inequalities in all-cause and cause-specific mortality across the life course by wealth and income in Sweden: a register-based cohort study

#Exercise capacity and #body mass index – important predictors of change in resting #heart rate

Resting heart rate (RHR) is an obtainable, inexpensive, non-invasive test, readily available on any medical document. RHR has been established as a risk factor for cardiovascular morbidity, is related to other cardiovascular risk factors, and may possibly predict them. Change in RHR over time (βˆ†RHR) has been found to be a potential predictor of mortality.. In this prospective study, RHR and βˆ†RHR were evaluated at … Continue reading #Exercise capacity and #body mass index – important predictors of change in resting #heart rate
