Podcast cover
Read more
Job insecurity has been identified as a risk factor for adverse health outcomes. Perceptions of job insecurity steeply increased during Europe's recent economic downturn, which commenced in 2008.

A study just published in JECH assessed whether job insecurity was associated with incident asthma in Germany during this period.

Jim Dunn talks discusses the findings with lead author Adrian Loerbroks, Institute of Occupational and Social Medicine, Centre for Health and Society, Faculty of Medicine, University of Düsseldorf.

Rank #4: Mortality on match days of the German national soccer team

Podcast cover
Read more
The link between emotional stress and an enhanced risk of cardiovascular death is well established. In particular, sports events such as soccer matches are capable of provoking strong emotions, which might cause a failure of the cardiovascular system, and thus a peak of death numbers in the population.

Now a study published in JECH has examined the number of deaths in Germany on match days of the national soccer team during a long-term period including several tournaments.

Editor Jim Dunn talks to lead author Daniel Medenwald, Institute of Medical Epidemiology, Martin-Luther-University of Halle-Wittenberg.

Rank #5: Do interventions to increase fruit and vegetable consumption among overweight children work?

Podcast cover
Read more

Childhood obesity is now a global epidemic and the incidence continues to increase. Dietary interventions and nutritional education are possible options, however, restrictive diets can result in negative outcomes, and therefore it may be more apt to encourage children to consume more fruit and vegetables.

Along with colleagues from the University of Manchester, Michael Bourke has conducted a review on this question, published in JECH, and he talks to editor Jim Dunn about what they found.

Rank #7: Polypill roundtable

Podcast cover
Read more

There has been long-standing interest in the idea of polypill (a pill containing a statin and an anti-hypertensive agent) being used by healthy people, as a tool to prevent heart disease (and possibly other diseases).

In a recent paper in JECH, Michael Holmes and Neeraj Bhala suggest that polypill may be used similarly as vaccines have been used for communicable diseases. This podcast presents a discussion on the polypill concept and whether the current evidence is good enough to advocate its large scale use.
