Universal school lunch programme closes a socioeconomic gap in fruit and vegetable intakes among school children in Japan

Universal school lunch programmes are expected to cover all children equally, compared with selective programmes that may stigmatize socially vulnerable children. However, the effectiveness of universal programmes in closing dietary disparity has not been empirically proven. We evaluated whether Japan’s universal school lunch programmes contribute to a reduction in the...

Health literacy, socioeconomic status and self-rated health in Japan

Health literacy (HL) is a key determinant of health in a contemporary society characterized by abundant information. Previous studies have suggested that basic or functional HL is positively associated with health, whereas evidences on the association between health and communicative/critical HL are scarce. Furthermore, confounding by socioeconomic status on HL-health association...

Impact of guideline-concordant microbiological testing on outcomes of pneumonia

Clinical practice guidelines recommend standardized diagnostic microbiological testing for community-acquired pneumonia on hospital admission, although evidence of its impact on quality is limited. This study evaluated the relationship between guideline-concordant microbiological testing (GCMT) and both in-hospital mortality and length of stay.

Increased Arterial Stiffness Weakens the Relationship Between Wave Reflection and the Central Pressure Indexes in Men Younger Than 60 Years of Age

Interactions among age, arterial stiffness, and pressure wave reflection affect the central blood pressure (CBP). We evaluated our hypothesis that the contribution of the wave reflection to the CBP indexes is reduced at higher levels of arterial stiffness, independent of the effect of age.
