Longest-running cohort study in the UK celebrates turning 70

Post by Waterbaby »

"The latest findings from the MRC National Survey for Health and Development (NSHD), a cohort study which turns 70 this week, have shown reason to celebrate – a rise in wellbeing throughout the seventh decade of life.

The MRC NSHD in March 1946, with the recruitment of thousands of newly born babies, and is the oldest and longest-running birth cohort in the UK. Over 3,000 study members turn 70 this month and together they are some of the most closely medically observed people in the world.

In a cohort study, researchers follow a group of people over time and this long-term assessment helps them make important links between genetics, environment, lifestyle and health."
