Crowded living and its association with mental ill-health among recently-arrived migrants in Sweden: a quantitative study

ObjectiveHousing and neighbourhood conditions are widely acknowledged important social determinants of health and health inequalities that persist in developed countries despite general improvements in health outcomes across populations. Previous research has investigated what effect crowded living conditions have on mental health and concluded that women living in crowded...

Genetic influences on angina pectoris and its impact on coronary heart disease

As functional properties of the coronaries may differ between coronary heart disease (CHD) patients with or without angina pectoris (AP), it is possible that different genetic mechanisms could be involved in the various CHD phenotypes. The primary aim of this study was, therefore, to determine the relative importance of genetic factors for AP as well as the impact of AP on CHD...

Familial Aggregation of Cryptorchidism—A Nationwide Cohort Study

Although cryptorchidism is the most common birth defect in boys affecting 4–9 percent of newborns and 1–2 percent of boys 1 year of age, the etiology remains largely unknown. The authors investigated the contribution of genetic and environmental factors to familial aggregation of cryptorchidism. Using Danish health registers, they identified 25,395 boys diagnosed with...

Familial Aggregation of Hypospadias: A Cohort Study

Hypospadias is one of the most common birth defects. However, its etiology remains largely unknown. The authors investigated the contribution of genetic and environmental factors to familial aggregation of hypospadias. Using Danish health registers, they identified 5,380 boys diagnosed with hypospadias in a cohort of 1,201,790 boys born in 1973–2005. Using binomial log-linear...

Association between Height and Coronary Heart Disease Mortality: A Prospective Study of 35,000 Twin Pairs

An inverse association between height and risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) is well demonstrated, but it is not known whether this association is because of genetic factors, socioeconomic background, or other environmental factors. Four population-based twin cohorts with register-based follow-up data on CHD mortality from Denmark (1966–1996), Finland (1975–2001), and Sweden...
